  1. Everyone would gather, at the 24th of May, sitting in the sand, to watch the fireworks display, dancing fires on the beach, singing songs together, though it's just a memory some memories last forever...
  2. The pictures really look great!
  3. Memorial Park Opens at Site of Rhode Island Nightclub Fire That Killed 100 Hundreds gathered on Sunday at the opening of a memorial park at the site of a 2003 nightclub fire in Rhode Island that killed 100 people. At least 500 people, including loved ones of the victims, local leaders and state officials, walked into Station Fire Memorial Park for the ceremony. The park was formally dedicated to the victims of The Station nightclub fire in West Warwick. The Feb. 20, 2003, blaze began when pyrotechnics for the rock band Great White ignited flammable foam that lined the club's walls as soundproofing. It was engulfed within seconds. More than 200 people were injured. Survivors and relatives of those who were killed have worked for more than a decade to build a permanent memorial at the site, which for years was overgrown with weeds and dotted with handmade crosses, weather-beaten stuffed animals and personal memorabilia left by victims' loved ones. Gina Russo, president of the Station Fire Memorial Foundation, was among the attendees Sunday. She lost her fiance, Fred Crisostomi, in the blaze and was severely burned. She has spent the years since then recovering and undergoing numerous operations while working to maintain her health insurance and trying to raise money to build the memorial and maintain it. The one-acre park includes a courtyard, gardens and granite monuments with the names and birthdays of every victim. Former Gov. Don Carcieri called the fire the "state's worst tragedy." "Being here today...causes all the memories, all the emotions of that terrible night to wash back over us all again," he said Sunday. "The raw pain, sadness and heartbreak of losing loved ones so unexpectedly lives with us always." At the ceremony, 100 high school students each carried a rose for the victims. The service featured live music, and attendees were asked to remember the survivors, relatives of those who died and the first responders and people who helped that day. The victims' names were read aloud. "My hope and my prayer is that this memorial can be a place of comfort and remembrance and healing, and I hope it can give you peace," Raimondo said. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/memorial-park-opens-site-rhode-island-nightclub-fire-killed-100-n762736
  4. You as well! Jerry
  5. HI Debbie! That is so cool you got see them. I dig it! Myself I did not catch them in concert as Zeppelin, but caught them individually on their first tours after Zeppelin in Phoenix. Caught Robert Plant's first concert here in Phoenix and Jimmy Page's first time playing in Phoenix after Led Zeppelin with the band he was in, The Firm. I have tried not to miss them at all since then. Love em'. Welcome!
  6. My earliest memory of hearing Led Zeppelin was in the early 70s on a desert road in Phoenix in a pickup truck, with "Heartbreaker" playing on the radio. I was in a pickup truck with my uncle driving and my dad, and we just left a convenience store, and we started driving and it was playing on the radio. I remember thinking to myself "wow". I was very young, but that memory stuck with me as my first memory of Led Zeppelin.
  7. Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale has confirmed to Sweden Rock Magazine that there are plans to reissue several of the band's classic albums, with a host of bonus material. Asked if he is painstakingly curating his historic work in the same way that his former collaborator Jimmy Page has done with the Led Zeppelin reissues, Coverdale said: "I'm not going that far. The saddest thing for me, and my dear, dear, dear beloved friend Jimmy Page, I think one of the reasons he's explored the Zeppelin catalog so significantly is because he can't get the guys to commit to making a new record or touring. Zeppelin's his baby, as Whitesnake is mine, but I'm very happy to say I have a fabulous fresh chapter of Whitenake. I'm still a recording entity and I'm still a touring entity. The last two years have literally been the most successful we've had forever. It's been fabulous. Next year, God willing, won't be any different. This year, we're gonna be all studio, write a new album and have new product for next year." He continued: "But can you see the comparison, whereas Jimmy doesn't have that - he doesn't have an opportunity. I've recommended to him for years to do what Carlos Santana did with "Supernatural". Jimmy's got all these great songs. I said, 'I'm there for you. I'll do a couple of songs for you, without a doubt.' I said, 'Do something like 'Supernatural'. At least you're playing.' It breaks my heart, 'cause he's such a fucking valuable musician. With what he's already given to us, he doesn't really owe us anything, but I just know that he's still valid and relevant and can still play amazing guitar and write amazing songs. Where do you go after fucking Led Zeppelin, dude? Where do you go?" http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/whitesnake-frontman-says-digging-up-bonus-material-for-upcoming-reissues-is-like-being-a-musical-archaeologist/
