      Well, I said I would try more Led Zeppelin to counter my Who love and so I have but only in bits and spurts. While I enjoy individual songs of theirs I find 5-6 minutes to be my Zeppelin limit, any more and Plant's voice starts to make my ears ring until I would prefer an icepick to his shrill. It's strange because I really like Plant's singing so long as I limit it to one song at a time. As soon as there is a pause between songs I completely loose the tone and when the next song kicks in my ears start to ring no matter how softly I have it playing. The way I have been most successful approaching a Zeppelin album is by listening to one song per day or at the very least breaking up the sound with something less shrill (Eric Burdon woks well) followed by various sounds more soothing and/or diverse for a few hours before tackling the next Zep track.

      Maybe I'm strange, maybe my ears are broken from too much loud music and shooting in my youth, maybe it's just some strange manifestation of my SPD; regardless, while I appreciate their talent and artistry, try as I might, I cannot fall in love with Zep the way so many others have--certainly not to the level of religious obsession they seem to attract.

        I went to see, The Song Remains the Same, when it came out and enjoyed it, although I found it weirdly self indulgent. Particularly the gangster segment featuring their manager (Richard Cole), like an out-take from Bugsy Malone, which was made around the same time. I also went through a phase of listening to them on my mp3 player, while I worked, until their fixation with hobbits meant I just couldn't take them seriously any more. Much prefer the earlier, fresher, sounds of the Yardbirds, these days.

        The Who are still one of my all time favourite bands.
