    Pretty crummy. Perhaps it would be more forgivable if they didn't dress that part and do the mannerisms. It accentuates their shortcomings

    The bass player didn't even try to look like Joihn Paul Jones, but coincidentally looks like Chris Squier (confusing)

    I suppose there should be certain expectations. If a person goes to the chino farmers market, and is surprised the band didn't blow the doors down, that's a misstep on their part, not the bands.

    The problem,again, is all dress and mannerisms. If it was a group of normally dressed cats out playing Zeppelin, I wouldn't have given it a second thought. The degree to which they took it makes them come off as jokes

    The Whole Lotta Love medley at the end is pretty good, one of the best things Zep did live. They pretty much have ths sound down.

    I'd be lying if I said I watched as much as 10% of it. They could play; it's not like they were novices. I don't think the dude knew his way around the nuances of the 18string (namely the 12string neck), and should stick with a 6. Maybe if I'd just listen and not watch, I could get more onboard

    I see your point, but I'm sure the band gets a shit ton more attention from the masses because they do a fairly good job of impersonating LZ in their prime. Musically hip people like yourself see them as a joke, but there's way more of the other type of music fans I think.

    I only watched about a minute of the 1st song and then jumped about 45 minutes into the video and watched a bit more. I was entertained.

    The drums sound pretty much exactly like the original that isn't an easy sound to get especially the snare drum.
