    There was a communication breakdown Please advise.

    Could be a great pin.

    Especially if they put my song in. "Whole Lotta Lloyd".

    LTG : )
    Disclaimer : Kidding about my song. Would like to see a Led Zepplin pin for their fans.

    There are several of these...no new thread needed unless there is CONCRETE news one is happening. Bump one of the old threads.

    I wonder if licensing would be thru the roof.....like The Beatles?

    #5 3 months ago

    Alledgedly rumoured to be a layout like Quicksilver.

    I would buy the top end model. That’s for sure.

    Especially if you had to get approval from all the bluesmen they "cough cough" borrowed from.

    Already saw them live and lived through it. They broke up like 40 years ago. Lifetimes ago.

    I'm not going to buy a pinball machine to try to relive it.

    If it's like The Beatles, all you'd get was a different trim color and a "diamond" certificate instead of merely "gold". Is it worth it? Market has said no, because Diamond Beatles prices fell from $25k suggested to $14k or less real-world in less than a year.

    LOL. A lot of detail for a speculation thread. I was thinking more CE level for a JJP.

    You are usually correct, but are you SERIOUS they are still stuck in the 1970s with new pinball themes?

    I thought this whole Led Zeppelin thing was a joke. And the old themes might be coming to an end.

    Now I'm finding the entire pinball industry has become a joke with no end in sight until they bury themselves with nostalgia nobody wants anymore.

    Actually I'm not all that surprised with all they have come up with the last few years.

    That's a positive development for Zep fans. Huge waste of a license if it was just a Quicksilver retheme...

    So let me get this straight.

    Are the people wanting this title the ones that were too young at the time or missed them first time around?

    Epic title and epic license no matter what Andrew Rosa says

    #18 3 months ago

    This is one of my top 2 dream themes. As long as it doesn't shoot like a drunk monkey designed the layout, I am in for sure.

    I have no idea who Andrew Rosa is, but I get the feeling what we've got lately is older guys marketing to younger guys the shit that most people that actually lived through it don't care about anymore. Am I close?

    #20 3 months ago

    To reiterate that, we lived and breathed Zep in the 70s until In Thru The Out Door came out.

    It sucked, and now they sucked. Game over. We were over them then and there is no reason we want them back now.

    You are right.

    Unless it is at least 50 years old, seems now they won't even consider it.

    We will probably all be dead by the time pinball makes it back to the 21st Century.

    Perhaps it's time for some of us to just let pinball rot in peace and move on.

    We get it. You were there and nobody else was. No reason to take a dump on somebody else’s excitement.
    LED Zeppelin is a spectacular band and I hate music pins but this title has my attention.

    As long as they do their higher price point i wont be a buyer. At least the main advantage zep has over Beatles is they don;t have a massive catalog of shitty music to pick the worst songs from.

    In Thru The Out Door was a whole three year wait after Presence, their last studio album. Even by then, many of us felt it was over. The day it hit, we all gave it a chance and sat around and listened, but sounded like it had only taken three days, not three years to make. The consensus was it really sucked and Hot Dog was about the only redeeming song.

    When Coda came out we were so over it, I didn't even take the time to listen to the whole album, but what I did hear sounded like scraps they scraped up off the floor and pieced together.

    Quoted from TomGWI:

    Not really. More a young man with an excellent memory that is and has been patiently waiting for pinball to again show me something new like it used to.

    I use to joke how if i died, I wanted to be reincarnated into the intro of In The Evening. How funny, when I heard Hot Dog....i was wondering how high were they to record that..

    If we are going to go with 70 themes, I would like to put a request in for Monty Pythons and the Holy Grail. I would love to have this callout somewhere in the game.

    I don't even want to repeat some of the comments that were made by my friends and myself as we reflected that evening after our listening party. I think we put on something like the Sex Pistols and proceeded to try to wash it out of our minds.

    CODA was exactly that - an album of left over tracks from the bands career. It was released as a bookend to the bands career.

    CODA is a musical term - it means “the end” of a piece (or section) of music.

    The end. So in other words "ass".

    I believe Physical Graffiti might have been another album put together out of scraps, but it turned out pretty well.

    #38 3 months ago

    hells yes

    I think I wrote this in some other thread, but Robert Plant’s young son DYING while he was on tour was the beginning of the end for Led, before In thru the Outdoor. You know another band that went through that and made a great album? They made a couple bad records, no pinball for them?? They made the best rock song of all time.. especially now that rock is dead. Probably 5 of the top 10.
    They stole a few melodies, but they were genius together- and defined what it was to be rock gods. Who is more deserving then Led?

    Stern, its past time...……………….GET THE LED OUT!!!!!

    Quoted from Trogdor:

    Robert Plant’s young son DYING while he was on tour was the beginning of the end for Led, before In thru the Outdoor.

    There was also his throat cancer that delayed the '77 tour six months before it got here, and I believe a bad car accident at some point as well. Lot of things were adding up.

    But I will say when they finally hit the LA Forum that summer, they gave it their best and rewarded us with an almost four hour show.

    There were other things adding up as well, punk was in full swing and Judas Priest had burst upon the scene with the kind of metal Zep seemed no longer capable of. All that signaled the end even before John Bonham died. It was tough to be an elder rock star at the end of the 70s.

    I think I bought the LP new in 1982-83 for 99c in the close out bins.

    The record stores had bought it in bulk because ... Led Zeppelin... but everyone had moved on big time. I think I’ve only listened to it once or twice ever.

    I bought “Rapping Rodney” the same day for 99c too! And I played the shit out of that record. It only has one swear word on the whole album .. of course my old man walked into my bedroom exactly as Rodney yells “you wanna know how f*king ugly she is??” and my old man sorta shook his head in dismay and walked out. Lollllll

    I think one of the biggest scams was it was either Coda or In Thru the Out Door came in four different album covers or sleeves, so they knew true collectors and the hardcore fans they had left would have to buy all four.

    But long before that us young teens were impressed by how literally Led Zeppelin had invented the wheel. I still have my copy. Intact.

    I’ll be excited if it actually happens and if Stern doesn’t completely muck it up like they did with the Beatles. Worst Stern since Striker Extreme. Completely dropped the ball with the greatest license they ever had.

    #46 3 months ago

    I started listening to Led Zeppelin IV and burnt myself out on that album. Started listening to the other albums..landed on II. I still love that album! I was a music major in college and played bass trombone, learned the bas line to Ramble On and played it all the time. I look forward to seeing and playing this pin!!

    This little trip down memory lane and a few beers has already lightened my mood on the thing, but I'm sure my song list would not even come close to making the final cut.

    I still remember no Whiplash on Metallica. I mean WTF?!
