A good artice, even if I do disagree with some of the criticism. Mainly....

"Led Zeppelin made their foray into the rock movie pool in 1976 with 'The Song Remains the Same'. It is a hilarious mix of overblown stage histrionics and ridiculous, embarrassing fantasy sequences in which each member of the band plays out - presumably their own - fantasies, including a bizarre gangster-style sequence, John Bonham driving a tractor, and even some dungeons, dragons and swords-type action that'll have even hardcore Zep fans cringing when you mention them."

EEK! FANBOY WARNING! RABIDITY HAS BEEN TRIGGER! GET THE MEDS!, GET THE MEDS!

Okay, but this is my A-1 Favorite Duke of New York with the head of the President on the hood of my car rock'n'film of all time. It was the very first VHS tape I ever bought. It was the very first DVD that I ever bought. If there ever is a remastered, Blu-Ray (or HD-DVD edition), I must have it - even if I do have not the Holy Grail of the Big Screen and x.x sound system yet. There is no logical to this. It be Led Zeppelin in-your-face with no apologize. Hell, just the Greatest Blues Songs of all Time ("Ever Since I've Been Loving You") alone with worth any piece.

That it is out of print is a CRIME against humanity!

And of course, I do own "How the West Was Won" and that final performance on the last DVD does elipse, "The Song Remain The Same" a bit. Hell, it blows it out of Mordor! But still, the memory of seeing TSRTS at many a midnight show is forever imprinted on the DNA of every cell in my soul.

Led Zeppelin FOREVER!!!!!!!!1

Hee... As I was editing this one (Craig and I switch back and forth on editing these primers, in case you're wondering why one of us pipes up re: one primer, and then it's the other for another), I even thought - seriously, I really did - larbeck is going to have to say something about this paragraph.

I'm truly glad to see you haven't let me down! Passion about music is important. I'm serious. Example: When it came to Stop Making Sense, I kept grumbling to myself, Why doesn't he just come out and say that it's the greatest concert movie of all time? [g]

But, you know. It's Cory's piece. I think he did a great job of covering as much territory as he did within the limited space and love the fact that he not only owns up to more than just a couple of guilty pleasures... He doesn't even feel guilty about them. Bravo.

Anyway. Glad you let off steam. I'll let Cory know.
