We realized very quickly that you couldn't and told Peter Grant that Zep was done with John's passing.

Their official statement:

“We wish it to be known that the loss of our dear friend and the deep sense of undivided harmony felt by ourselves and our manager, have led us to decide that we could not continue as we were.”

If they only released the song 2112, that alone would be enough for them to deserve their legacy.

That’s a goddamn gem of a video. CP’s drumming technique, the way he’s holding the sticks, is an absolute pleasure to watch. That’s some seriously fantastic footage.

I agree for the most part. Songs like Time Stand Still and Turn the Page from Hold Your Fire still get me a little misty, and then there was a large stretch where Peart was channeling his inner struggles, but finally hit home (for me anyway) with Counterparts. Cut to the Chase, and Cold Fire are Rush at the best they could be at that point in their career. Cold Fire has some intense cymbal riding when it gets moving, and Alex's solo is simple yet powerful. I love this tune, such a great slow burn feel:

PLANK, couldn't agree more!!! Feel the same way about Zep's I'm Gonna Crawl, their last official release. (Coda was old outtakes that were released to satisfy a contract with Atlantic Records)
We could be talking about Quantum Mechanics and it'd somehow come back to Zep at some point. That's an endearing quality you have.



How 'bout that cover album Rush did, ey?

My very first concert was Rush (2112 tour) in 1976 in Kansas City. I was 5 years old. My older brother (19 at the time) talked my parents into letting me go with him and three of his friends. I remember the concert quite well because it was on a Sunday night and I had school the next morning. A good time was had by all.

I used to air drum the 2112 album in my brother's room spinning the vinyl on the old Pioneer stereo system. 2112 is still a fantastic album. Glad to see them retire on their own terms.
