    This is the 50 anniversary of the band. It's time for their pinball machine. What do you think?

    #2 7 months ago

    Led Zeppelin is another one of my dream themes it would be an instant buy.

    #4 7 months ago

    Anything to make Jimmy Page more of a rock god.....Im in

    #5 7 months ago

    It would definitely work but it seems like a lot of hoops to jump through in order to get the license. I would rather a Pink Floyd pin, if I had to choose.

    #6 7 months ago

    Sure that sounds awesome, kiss/Aerosmith layout has been needing a new theme!

    #7 7 months ago

    I’d sell any pin I had to own this. Assuming it wasn’t botched

    #8 7 months ago

    I'd be on this like flies on stink!

    #9 7 months ago

    Led Zeppelin and Brian Eddy...i am in..you listening Mr Gomez !

    Enough band pins already.

    #11 7 months ago

    Stairway to Heaven Multiball. Definitely one of my top 5 band themed pinball games.

    #12 7 months ago

    How bout moby dick multiball instead Drums & pinball I’d be in heaven

    #13 7 months ago

    If someone could convince Mr. Page, I would own one for sure!
    ZEPP

    #14 7 months ago

    This would be huge!!

    #15 7 months ago

    Nope. I love the band too much to grow tiresome of their music. It could only possibly be lower than my expectations or dreams.

    Heartbreaker skill shot.

    I'm going to listen to some Travelling Riverside Blues now.

    Hey at least pick an actual Zep song

    It would be pretty slim pickings then, wouldn't it !

    I love the band, but I'm not blind to their borrowing history.

    As much as I love Led Zeppelin, I would rather see a Black Sabbath pin. I think their songs and imagery lends itself much better to pinball.

    Quoted from BudManPinFan:

    "Evil minds that plot destruction"! That is another one of my top 5. Sharon...

    #20 7 months ago

    I saw Black Sabbath in 1970, they were the backup for Mountain. They only had 1 album out at the time. Like most, we had never heard them. They were pretty intense for the time.

    #21 7 months ago

    Several years ago I built a virtual pin and went with a Zeppelin theme (Led Zep Pin ). I was messing around creating some side art using the inside artwork from Houses of the Holy where all the kids are climbing the Giant's Causeway to a pinball in the sky.. Dorky? Yes. Something to do? Yes. Posting a sample for a goof.

    Pass.

    If it's not a 60 or 70 year old band that has been defunct for over 40 years. I'm not interested.

    They ripped off so many songs from old bluesmen how do you know which is theirs and which isn't?

    It would be just like imdn then. No songs from the first two albums.

    Seriously though, waking up and seeing another thread about another game from another band that I haven't cared about since the 70s, and who really haven't done much of anything since then, makes me wonder what kind of hobby I've signed up for.

    Although it has become par for the course over the last few years, it still makes me chuckle a little each time it happens.

    Besides John Lee Hooker, who was the best of the best as far as blues, nearly EVERY awesome blues song covered can be traced back to Willie Dixon. This is BARELY an exaggeration. He was THE MAN.

    When I saw Zep in concert in '77, during one of many of Plant's ramblings on, I did hear him mention Robert Johnson at one point. Was kinda hard to decipher exactly what he was saying though.

    Yeah Robert Johnson for sure as well. Delta Blues as opposed to Chicago Blues. Both awesome, but different. Those old Robert Johnson recordings are a little tough to listen too, just because of the era. Hard to believe recordings could be done back then.

    With Clapton, Cream, they were Chicago Blues-influenced.

    Bro you gotta spell the band correctly if you expect a pin...

    I give them all the credit in the world for ending the band when Bonzo died. Who knows how much more quality music they would have produced, but does it matter? They are the greatest band of all-time.

    It ended the day In Thru The Out Door was released for many. I remember that day well as we all sat around that evening and reflected. The reviews from the current fans were not good. At the end of it all it was our consensus that day "Hot Dog" was the only redeeming track from that album.

    "All my Love", "Fool in the Rain" and "In the Evening" I enjoy very much but to each their own.

    I'm not arguing they were on the decline. Just stating they ended it in style and left us with some of the best music ever produced. And yes their music def fits pinball. If we can shoehorn Aerosmith into a pin, Led Zeppelin deserves one as well...

    Oh man. I absolutely cannot STAND Fool In The Rain. You talk about Page just being whacked out of his mind by then. The whole album is sub par, to say the least.

    To put it in perspective, Presence in 1976 was IMO a metal masterpiece, and was great right out of the gate.

    Fast forward to 1979, and music had undergone quite a change with punk and new wave now in full force. It was going to take something of epic proportions to keep Zep on the map, and that did not happen.

    Instead, it was this is what they have been working on and we have been waiting three years for? Epic fail, game over.

    What is your point? Or do you have one? And to be clear nobody asked for your opinion this time so let's not fall back on that excuse again. No idea why you feel the need to do this in thread after thread.

    The op did indeed ask "what do you think?"

    Instead of basically telling me to shut up, why don't you tell us your experience of how it was for you being a fan of the band while they were together, going to see them in concert, and being there as each new album was released. I'm sure it would enlighten us all.

    I also remember our senior year when we had a rock and roll day in 1979 and Mike Ness pinned this poster to a tree and lit in on fire to a near standing ovation. All ancient history now.

    Get off your pedestal dude. I was f*cking six when Bonham passed. But that doesn't make MY opinion any less valid than yours. I still "experienced" them in my own way. And they are my favorite band despite being only a sperm when Houses of the Holy was released. Music transcends generations. So cool your buddy burned an image of one of the greatest vocalists of all-time. How profound. That's what I call a fair weather fan. Sorry you were caught up in disco fever and Zeppelin didn't go the way of Blondie.

    Should I tell you your opinion on Iron Maiden is invalid because I grew up with them, they were my first concert and I wore their t-shirts until there was basically nothing left to them? Is my experience more valid somehow? No it's not.

    But apparently you think mine is not as valid as yours. I wasn't the one that told you to stifle yourself. Instead I asked you to tell us your story. Which you did, and I can see why you have absolutely no understanding of how it was at the time.

    Quoted from MinusWorlds:

    He was no real fan of theirs. His influences went well beyond blues cover bands and hard rock hit makers of the time. But it was certainly a sign of the time. I'll also take a wild guess that name means nothing to you.

    Because you take these unnecessary hardlines any try to tell people why what they want to see in a pin is wrong. You do it over and over again. It's old.

    Yeah you're right Led Zeppelin is the greatest cover band of all-time, nothing more. It's funny how you say you were so upset with the let down of In Through the Out Door but then they're just a "blues cover band"...

    #40 7 months ago

    MET is one of my favorite pins, hate the music. Replaced with 15 LED Zeppelin songs! Now it’s fantastic.

    I'm only speaking for myself and would probably be not making as many posts if people like you weren't constantly quoting me and insistent that I should shut up or change my opinion.

    Do you really think my opinion or recollection of the past has any bearing on this getting made or not?

    Read into what I say anyway you like, but I was a huge fan with all the albums and posters on the wall until it was over. Kinda what teenage kids do. Or did.

    You lived through the greatest time of rock n' roll and all you can seem to do is bitch about one album. Have a nice night.

    No, you are coming off as a control freak, telling others what to do, and only seeing what you want to see.

    They were already on the way out.

    1979 was the perfect time to get out of the way of all the new-wave and punk bands that were much more interesting.

    That's what I was saying happened, but apparently doesn't make sense to someone who was very young at the time. I guess I can understand that, but music was in a serious change, and battle lines had been drawn.

    This song got ripped off by by both LZ and Eric Crapton

    LZ changed the name to "Since I've Been Loving You"

    Hold on, the difference being when Cream covered a blues song, they gave full credit to the person who wrote and performed it. Page had no compunction about putting his name to someone else's work and calling it his own.

    Who's talking about Cream?

    Duane said he stole the opening riff to Layla directly from the verse of "As the Years Go Passing By"

    -

    If you do want to talk about Cream, then Strange Brew would be stolen directly from Buddy Guy - uncredited.

    After this one gets done, how long before a Yardbirds game will be relevant enough for today's pinball scene?
