    I thought you felt that Zepplin were grossly overrated with the exception of STH and Kashmir.

    I'd still say they're overrated.

    But almost everything on Zoso, Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti has been the soundtrack to my life the past few months.

    I probably said that in my waywardly anti-mainstream phase.

    Zep had their low points, but their high points were divine.

    I barely listen to them anymore, but I love them on the occasions that I do. But when it comes to the two riff rock giants of the late 60s and early 70s, i'm a Sabbath man through and through.

    Anyone ever heard the bootleg version of Jimmy Page's Lucifer Rising score? Interesting.

    I'm not really a fan of them. They have some truely great songs that are amoung the best I've ever heard, but over all, I'm not too fussed with them. Would have liked to have seen them at the O2 Reunion though.

    Mac, what's the better AC/DC album in your opinion... High Voltage or Highway to Hell?

    Definitely Highway to Hell. I'm not big on ACDC anymore, but I still like that album quite a bit. Looove night prowler and walk all over you.

    Second time you've asked me about the band. Are they growing on you or are you just expanding your horizons?

    I've always thought they were boss instrumentally... it was Bon Scott's voice that put me off, but he's starting to grow on me.

    I'm exactly the same actually. I've obviously heard stuff from them in the past, but the moment his voice kicks in, I kick off.

    But I heard 'Back to Black' used by Jay Z at Glasto and it made me youtube. They have some nice riffs, but that fuckers voice irritates me. With the exception of Highway to Hell.

    That said, I find myself wanting more instrumental music these days.

    It's the content that usually turns me off. Same with Van Halen. Even though I don't care about lyrics a whole lot, I can only take someone singing about parties and their dick so long.

    Angus, Malcolm, and EVH are all fucking unbelievable though.

    I've only listened to Van Halen, which I love. I never bought any of their other albums because some one said they were shit. He played 'Jump' and I took his word. On VH I tend to ignore the lyrics, because it's basically one song, repeated 14 times to different music.
