  1. That's a pro camera what show is this?
  2. Edited
  3. I just can't get past the poor production, sorry. And there are some good songs on there for sure. I listen to it once every few years and I hate it more each time.
  4. Jimmy has made a career out of making instruments and devices do what they're not designed to do.
  5. I believe these pics were taken Dec 1981 at Golden Lion Pub for some charity event
  6. A nice simple 30 minute acoustic set one off performance would be so EASY for them to pull off to commemorate 50th anniversary. No reason not to except egos & lawyers
  7. All us Hotel members are beyond sad, really broken up about it. RIP Pres
  8. I'll take Wearing and Tearing over the Crunge or Dyer Maker any day
  9. They did. It's called Led Zeppelin 1 😊
  10. I personally believe the Stairway solo is a cut and paste job of the 3 takes and Jimmy assembled best bits into finished solo we know and love.
  11. In a Richard Cole interview, he claimed one time Bonzo, in 1975, told him he'd just gotten a check for 5 million dollars. In 1975. That's like 20 million today. Imagine giving almost 90% to the government. Id be an exile too
  12. Bonham was Jimmy's Horcrux.
  13. See Jimmy's comments on Syd and Jimi, believe it !
  14. Here's a Page mystery question. Who was Brian Goode his by all accounts completely inept manager from 1988-1994 or thereabouts. I can't ever recall seeing a picture of him or heard of him managing any other acts. How did Jimmy hook up with him?
  15. Miles and Jonesy, NOW we're talking!
  16. I don't think Jimmy had enough Jazz knowledge to hang with Miles, no disrespect to Jimmy.
  17. Thx for info wow hope that news footage turns up someday!
  18. I don't know if this qualifies as a mystery, but I want to know more about Zeppelin and the Peace Medal Ceremony in Hiroshima in 1971. 1. Who's idea was it? Zep or promoter? 2. Zep donated their concert proceeds? 3. Was this a big deal in Japan? Or did every rock band do this etc thx
  19. Another funny Bonzo story, in Tony Iommis book he said Bonzo came to see the new Sabbath with Ronnie James Dio, and after the show Bonzo said "That Dwarf can really sing!" Dio lunged at him furious but was restrained.
  20. 1. Yes recorded at Musicland. This is clearly a professionally recorded multi track recording whereas SIR studios in LA was just a rehearsal studio. 2. Jimmy stated that Robert didn't come up with lyrics for it. To understand this, one has to understand Zep and Jimmy's approach to recording. In many cases, Jimmy would construct a song and deliver it in its final form to Robert. The Song Remains the Same and Ten Years Gone are two examples of this. So it looks like this track was worked up, but just didn't get to the finish line. 3. Lord only knows what the title means totally random bizarre and quintessentially Zep.
  21. Lol, the 26th is a great show in my opinion! Very relaxed and Jimmy plays well, give it a listen! the 30th is a good show, too no doubt. To me, the 25th is the least of them.
  22. The 11th to me, is a Jimmy Train wreck. One of his worst performances of all time. His guitar tone is muddy. His playing is totally disjointed, unglued, and just a mess. He is rushing every song, coked off his face. Look at video of opening numbers, his face is pinched up sweating profusely gritting his teeth, he's a mess I can't even stand watching it. The rest of the band is actually very good, especially Bonzo. Just so solid. jimmy though, I'm mad at him for being so bad when they had video cameras rolling and multi tracking the show. He really blew that one, badly. Like Atlantic 40th bad.
  23. I can't tell you how many drummers I've played with that sorta snicker when I'm like I wanna do a Zep tune, like "oh that's easy" then they try and fail miserably. It's comical. Bonzo just made it SOUND EASY.
