The joy of this exchange is that I KNOW you will all hopefully be as old as me one day AND hopefully enjoying life just as much.:good:

And I hope you are correct, but we will not have to own up to some of the things that you have admitted to enjoying!:w00t:

I'm a bit of a Led Zep purist so it was a difficult listen/watch at first, especially because the composition rushed through and omitted some of the transitions and fills - like when you hear someone sing a song to themselves and they don't leave enough beats between bars but rush on to the next line...

However the talent involved can't be called in to question!  A very emotional performance and, as a piece in its own right, excellent.  The orchestra and choir certainly added a new dimension.

When the crescendo of the lead guitar part kicked in I could see Jimmy Page wishing he was down there on stage to boot that guy out of the way and light the amps up!!
