1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Both are good but I'll take The Rain Song. Only because I've heard Stairway a bazillion times.

    Ledzed got to artsy fartsy after the first 3 albums.

    Stairway to Beerstore is better.

    Despite being hopelessly overplayed and worshipped, STH is still an amazing work, a classic in every sense....HOWEVER, Rain is my pick, and Houses of the Holy is my fave Zep album.

    Stairway to Heaven. Just because it's been played a bazillion times on the radio does not negate the fact it's the greatest rock song of all time.

    And ya, listen to the first 2 chords in both Rain Song and Something. It's Jimmy's nod to George after George told him Zep needed more ballads.

    The live version of The Rain Song is my favorite piece by Led.

    The whole chromatic drop and chords in the beginning of the song is a "quote" from Something.
    Jimmy has said this.

    I and Jimmy are both Beatles fans.
