  1. Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner will be handing the reigns off to his son so expect more of the same (or possibly worse) in the future.
  2. It's Rolling Stone. They couldn't give Zeppelin a good album review to save their lives. Notwithstanding that, once you see Living Loving Maid on the list, one should close the web page. It that doesn't do it having Whole Lotta Love at #1 instead of Stairway to Heaven..............Well that is just icing on the cake!
  3. Looks like a Canadian print. Looked up the matrix on http://www.discogs.com
  4. March 22, 1973 Grugahalle, Essen, Germany or July 24, 1979 Falkoner Theater, Copenhagen, Denmark
  5. Ringo and Bonzo (Sounds like a movie from the 50s!)
  6. Looks like 1980 Tour of Europe.
  7. +1 RIP
  8. Interestingly enough, Jimmy did not touch any live material regarding the remasters. So, I'm guessing the existing live material released (or new) will get the Jimmy Page mastering touch. (After the Yardbirds at the Anderson Theater is released or the April 68 sessions?)
  9. IpMan: Then how do you explain the tremolo? Bigsby? No tremolo used. All string bending. At the beginning there is an open g note (third string) that Jimmy is bending behind the nut. Later on around 5:17 he is playing two notes. Pinky on the first string fifteenth fret while pre-bending the second string at the fifteenth fret up a whole step (with variations). Jeff Beck is known for this technique. Source is Prescence guitar tab edition published in 1995. If Jimmy was using the tremolo, the section around 5:17 would sound different. The first string's pitch that he is holding with his pinky would change along with the second string. That is not the case here. The note on the first string is stable while the second bends up and down in variations. Also the sound (to me) is a humbucker through a small vox amp. (not the Supro - which is the rhythm.)
  10. Les Paul
  11. Just listened to my copy. Very good performance by the band. Appreciated the nod to The Yardbird's I Ain't Done Wrong at the end of Bring It On Home. Production: I like the black and white marble like vinyl. The disc is an EP which is a few inches smaller than a regular lp. There are two areas of distortion in the grooves of In The Light. (A production glitch) My disc is numbered under 200.
  12. A lot of people watched the Thor trailer and said, what is that music from?
  13. Just noticed an inclusion of Led Zeppelin in X-Men:Days of Future Past. There is a scene within the first 40 minutes or so of the movie where a young Professor X, after Logan arrives to ask him for help, leaves the hall to go back to his room for more medication. He sits in his chair to think. There is the open gate-fold of Houses of the Holy on his bed.
