  1. UPDATED! From Henry Smith Q & A on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Henry-The-Horse-Smith-a-Q-and-A-1674831679457966/?fref=ts&hc_location=ufiQ: With regards to Jimmy Page's black beauty that was stolen, have you ever heard any rumours / had suspicions as to who lifted his guitar? Or, is it a complete mystery?HS: Glade to announce the Black Beauty is now back in the hands of Jimmy thanks in part to Perry Margouleff. This happened just a few months ago. It was a happy day for me to see Jimmy get this back.
  2. I stumbled across this footage today of Bonzo backstage at the LA Forum at a Wings concert June 1976 (plus a few other well known guests). Bonham clip starts @ 3.25 http://youtu.be/eTn-F3sjw1w
  3. Nice detective work PP ?
  4. Yes I attended this exhibition @ the S H Ervin Gallery and was fantastic, unfortunately no cameras where allowed but there were many pics that I'd never seen.
  5. This photo was in Dave Lewis' book, 'Led Zeppelin - A Celebration' and listed as being from the afternoons soundcheck. Might be worth chasing it up with him if he a larger scan or more photos from this date.
  6. ^ Absolutely spot on. The only picture I have seen is the one in Dave Lewis' book the Concert Files of the soundcheck. The stage at Subiaco was very distinctive, here is a picture of Elton John doing soundcheck at Subiaco in 1971

  8. You ain't going mad, check out the last few seconds of this clip
  9. Interesting, i don't think i've ever seen any pictures of JPJ smoking on stage yet there are 2 in this set. Nice work
  10. A catalog of Les Paul's instruments/memorabilia (410 pages!) is going up for auction. Very well laid out and great reading. Foreword by Jimmy Page 'Les Paul had a dream to create a foundation which would sponsor music education for children. Les was a musical pioneer of the electric guitar and of multi-track analogue recording. He was an inspiration to generations of musicians. We hope this sale will go on to fund musicians of the future." http://www.juliensau...k/icatalog.html
  11. Jimmy didn't start up with Charlotte until 9 January 1970, Jimmy's birthday and the date of the Royal Albert Hall gig.....
  12. How cool is that! Awesome find Sam
  13. Cheers Sam. I think for Peter Grant to be dressed up in a suit, it must have been something kind of important to make the best impression. Maybe Beck's presence held more sway, regarding his current success with the JBG at the time????
  14. After a bit of research I think I've nailed it down to October 31 1968. Jeff Beck played a benefit gig for the children in Biafra at the Fillmore East on the 31 October 1968. I believe PG was managing the JBG at the time? Regardless, Jimmy and Jeff were old mates who probably wanted to catch up (I wonder if it was this occasion that Beck first heard LZ1 and their version of 'You Shook Me'??) And the 'mystery man' in the middle I believe is Steve Weiss, Led Zeppelin's US attorney. Also if you look at the official timeline, there is a gap inbetween gigs from October 25 to November 9, 1968, hence Jimmy's presence.
