Wow is it still rocks.
It starts of like page and plants definative work
But once again john bonham's workmanlike style ties the performance together into the master work of the kings of rock.

This is honeslty one of the best vidoes I've ever seen with Led Zeppelin. I own two of there DVDs and I really wish'd that this version of Achilles Last Stand was on one of them. (Led Zeppelin DVD & The Song Remains The Same) both of them are great.

adoro a Led Zeppelin, dioses del rock
pero particularmente esta cancion me remonta a recuerdos vagos de un desliz
de un viaje
esta cancion me lleva a lugares que no conozco en persona, pero sin embargo mi mente ya estuvo alli

una palabra la define


maestros me quito el sombrero, son grandes

Incredible, as always! Musical genius that I'm glad and grateful we got to experience and appreciate. ALL FANTASTIC MUSICIANS that we'll love forever. Achilles Last Stand is such an intricately complicated piece of music that could never be performed by any other group. Truly unique.

This has to be one of my favorite Zep songs, and has one of the coolest endings in Rock 'n' Roll History.

Greatest Band Ever

T. Westbrook's picture

Awesome. Outstanding editing. Compiling all the fragments of performances must have been a daunting task, but this illustrates for all how devastating LZ was in concert. This song is one of their masterpieces. I am reminded of why I am such a fan, still blown away by these guys!

I was 15 when they played this show but did manage to see Page and Plant together later in my life. Alas after seeing this I now know I missed so much more of what they were. To this day I am amazed that this was just a 4 piece band. The power of the drums and guitars is mind blowing and Robert has always been one of my hero's with his numbing vocals and heart felt screams.
Hats off to you Zed Zeppelin!
