  2. Montreal 2/6/75 Underrated?

    As I mentioned on the OT, only a complete madman would bring dope into Canada, and especially Montreal back in the 70's. Plus, trying to find dope in Montreal without a rock solid connection was impossible. IMO this show proves not only how great Jimmy was as a live player, but how good he could have been on a consistent basis if he would have just stayed away from the drugs. It was no mistake why Zeppelin did not play Canada in 77' as Jimmy would have had to have been sober or risk possible serious jail time. Just like Richards in Feb 77 Toronto, the RCMP would have taken one look at the skeletal Page and tossed everyone's room and belongings. This is a real cracker of a show and my ex-brother in-law was there as well. He was 17 at the time and said it was the best show he ever saw.
  3. Plant on Stern - 10/17/17?

    I will believe it when I hear it. Stern is a piece of shit, plain and simple. He used to be pretty funny when him, Robin, BaBa Booey, and Fred Norris would rank on the daily news and other topics but his overplayed, boring shtick about naked women in the studio is long past its sell by date. Stern is a shock jock who makes the claims about Zeppelin to shock, nothing else. Who knows what his true personal opinion of the band is but I doubt Robert would open himself up to non-stop questions about Zeppelin, Page, the occult, groupies, drugs, and having children with his wife's sister. Oh and lets not forget, as soon as Plant try's to bring up his recent material Stern will tell him, "Meh, forget about that muzak shit, lets talk about all the blow you snorted off of underage girls tits..." That interview will go Tango Utah right quick.

  10. California Fires

    Can't believe what has happened out there! Looking through the ashes for missising people. Tens of thousands without homes. Horrific and still nothing from the annoying orange.
  11. What's the weather like where you are?

    Wishing all of our friends in Ireland and the U.K. the best as they have Ophelia approaching. Crazy that it's still a hurricane heading it direction. Supposed to downgrade, but tropical storms can be a real bitch too. Let us know how things are going, please!
  12. I like the new album. "Carry Fire" is a Robert Plant album...with all that implies. It seems noisier and more raucous than the previous album, which was pretty mellow. But if you are pining for Led Zeppelin II or Plant screeching "Black Dog" '70s-style, then you probably won't like this record. After a few listens, I haven't sussed out a favourite song yet...though that one with all the Oud playing is a cracker. Love Chrissie Hynde lending her voice to "Bluebirds Over The Mountain". Looking forward to the tour.
  13. Plant on Stern - 10/17/17?

    He'll go down every stairway to answer the questions for the mainstream once and for all. With that said, he will give us something we've never known before. I'm certain of that. Howard is an amazing interviewer anymore.
  14. Yesterday
  15. Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    This thread has turned into a proper lovefest! Ha ha ha ha. Michael Winner must have included a clause in his Will that any future owner of his erstwhile pile next to the Tower House, had to be of at least equal standing in the smug stakes as him. Needless to say, Robbie Williams veritably trounced all bidding competition with some aplomb. Cheers, Indi
  16. Plant on Stern - 10/17/17?

    Stern is also one of those annoying people who think Led Zeppelin ripped off everything, so he'll probably go down that stairway.

  20. Jimmy Page will speak at the Oxford Union - 23 October at 8pm

    I'm not aware of the typical format for these Oxford University presentations, but I'd expect this event to be geared to a musicology type approach, perhaps on Blues music or his session days, rather than a blast of heady Zeppelin related tales, musical or otherwise. Thinking more about this, I fully expect this to feature an erudite discourse by Jimmy, on the important contribution Aleister Crowley made to British culture and his innovative propagation of "Thelma." Cheers, Indi
  21. 2017 Major League Baseball thread....

    Yankees haters suck! Even if we don't make it this year, and that's an IF, we are back and better than ever with youth and swagger. Watch out AL East bitches!
  22. Robert Plant - Pre-Zep History

    This might be new? Robert Plant and his Band of Joy, ad for Oct. 7, 1967, Kirkconnel Miners' Institute. "First time in Scotland"
  23. football

    Amen. He walked onto the pitch for the game with his son. Great for the game, great for our team. He never won anything here, but that was more about the organization than the player.

    Apologies if some of my comments duplicate those earlier in the thread; I didn't read it all before posting. Given the greedy, back catalogue recycling (re-packaging) tendency of the few record companies that remain operational, it is inconceivable that they will not release new material or re-packaged Led Zeppelin material in 2018/19. Jimmy Page, in his guise as curator and "Keeper of the Flame" for the band from a product release perspective, will, without doubt, insist on something special being released by Atlantic to mark the band's 50th Anniversary. Following on from the gargantuan studio remaster series, the only unreleased material of note in the archives will be live recordings. The most logical live releases seem to be an Earls Court live anthology covering all five dates or a Badge Holders Only official extravaganza. The likely mammoth, deep dive hunt for tape treasure in the Atlantic vaults, for the studio remasters, will definitely have unearthed live tape material that was previously thought lost or was merely misplaced. Reviewing all the extant tapes may have resulted in Jimmy looking at the multi-track live tapes that do exist with a fresh light and perhaps deemed them worthy of his rigorous fairy dust treatment (being polite about it!). I'd kinda also expect the Led Zeppelin DVD to have a Blu-ray and 4K release. The only downside to a Zep 50th Anniversary release salvo is that it will afford Jimmy an altogether too easy excuse to postpone his long-mooted new solo record and tour for the umpteenth time. Not that I held any great hope for either for several years now. Without being unduly cynical, I can't help thinking Robert timed his new solo album release and the supporting world tour to properly kick any prospect of him participating in any Zep 50th activity not only into the long grass but into the farthest corners of the globe. Despite all the protestations to the contrary, while a full concert with the remaining members and Jason is inconceivable. Notwithstanding my previous RP remark, I think a televised four-song June performance in Central Park is viable. The amount of rehearsal required to float that would be moderate and sustainable and not disrupt RP's touring schedule that much. As someone astute proposed earlier on this thread, an acoustic set is a good call to get around Robert's current singing style and Jimmy's likely physical endurance constraints. Another idea that came to mind, which would be fitting and I think popular is a David Bowie IS or Pink Floyd: their Mortal Remains style touring exhibition portraying the Zeppelin legacy with a panoply of unseen and rare artefacts. Cheers, Indi
