benjedi420vt This show is very good, I'm glad to see they are really coming together. Crazy amounts of energy!

HOWEVER, anyone that compares or even goes as far as to say Zeppelin wishes they could make No Quarter sound this way - ARE YOU KIDDING or are you CRAZY?

They happen to play No Quarter very well and it's very fun to hear them play tribute. BUT..that's as far as it goes. When Trey was at the top of his game, say 92-97, he might have been able to compare to JP a little bit...but give Zep's version of No Quarter a listen (www.grooveshark.com - Song Remains The Same) and there is no way Trey can compete with that...he just can't, he's not that guitarist, nor do I want him to be. He has his own amazing sound.

Fish is one of my favorite drummers ever, he is so versatile and can play almost any beat, but he can't quite get the hard sound that JHB makes and because of that (at least for me and I think most zep fans) Phish covers of zep tunes will never be as good as the zep versions. Some Phish cover's I like way more than the originals, Loving Cup and Roses Are Free are great examples. So I'm not hating on Phish, but you gotta leave the "better than...or as good as zep" stuff alone. I read it on these reviews frequently and its just not true. Great to listen to and fun with high energy, but not even close to as good as let alone better!
