  1. I've read in two or three Zeppelin books that there was a point that they were thinking of getting Squire in & moving Jones to keyboards permanently. Does anyone have any details on this? I was listening to the Seattle bootleg tonight & it struck me how ludicrous this decision might've been, John Paul Jones was 10 times the bass player he was a keyboardist.

    I think Tea For One is one of the best things Led Zeppelin ever done. The whole LP is great really, it's probably the studio album I play the most in the house these days.
  3. Chris Squire Rumours

    In my defence, it's got people talking although it was more meant to stimulate discussion on the musical implications of them recruiting other people into the band rather than the 'Celebrity Death Match' thread it's turned into. The comment about Squire knocking Bonham 'on his ass' has set the tone unfortunately & am more than happy for the thread to be deleted if people don't like it.
  4. Chris Squire Rumours

    Wasn't Chris Squire a bit of a pisshead? He probably would've been down the boozer with Bonham in his big glittery wizard jacket before rehearsals.
  5. Chris Squire Rumours

    Yeah, I agree with all of that but still doubt Squire would've joined Led Zeppelin & twatted John Bonham for turning up at rehearsal with a drink in him. The Stones should've quit when Mick Taylor left, they've been phoning it in since the mid 70s. The Who were notorious for fighting yet made some great music & that's what it's all about at the end of the day.
  6. Chris Squire Rumours

    To be fair to Steve, the thread was meant to be about the musical implications of such a move rather than 'Who would win out of a fight between John Bonham & Chris Squire?'. I think it would be highly unlikely for anyone to join a hugely successful band & then immediately start beating people up for having a drink before a rehearsal. I agree that Chris Squire would've changed the band's sound a great deal, he certainly didn't have that James Jamerson thing going on that Jones did although there's no doubting he's one of the great bass players of all time.
  7. Chris Squire Rumours

    In the books I read, I believe it was discussed somewhere around the '73 to '75 period. Of course it could've been nonsense from the likes of Davis & Cole.

    I'd love to have a look at it but paying £95 for a book of pictures is way beyond my level of financial decadence.
  9. What next? AGAIN

    Jimmy Page has cut a fair bit from the recent Yardbirds 68 release so I don't see him changing his ways anytime soon.
  10. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    Mine arrived yesterday, what a brilliant version of Mr You're a Better Man Than I on the live album. I'll try to get a proper listen over the weekend.
  11. The Black Sabbath Thread

    Any news on this California Jam '74 album coming out? It's out in a couple of weeks but there's no cover image or track listing on Amazon...
  12. Aretha Franklin

    Possibly the most underrated song of all time...
  13. Aretha Franklin

    I love Aretha.
  14. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    I got my shipping notification on Monday morning (UK based & CDs) so would expect to receive mine today or tomorrow.
  15. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    That's good news then, thanks for letting us know, RockDude & JTM.
  16. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    I'd imagine JTM is basing his assumption on the lack of e-mail confirmation that the CD/Vinyl has been sent out. I've certainly not seen anything in my inbox.
  17. Robert Plant rearranging zeppelin classics

    Ha ha, 'worse than Detroit'. Brilliant.
  18. Robert Plant rearranging zeppelin classics

    Imagine booing Robert Plant.
  19. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    Yeah, I took particular notice of the word 'hope' in last week's e-mail. I can see this really dragging on & it'll probably be Christmas before we get them, call me cynical. At least they've got our money in their bank account though, that's the main thing.
  20. Thanks to fans, Final concert

    They won't be doing a farewell concert/tour so there is no conundrum.
  21. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    Yes, the e-mail I got indicated that they were hoping to send the first batches out towards the end of this week (so today, tomorrow & Saturday I would guess).
  22. Thanks to fans, Final concert

    I reckon the fans should do a one off gig to say thanks to the three remaining members for all their great music, I'll play the castanets.
  23. Me neither, I love Led Zeppelin but the idea of spending hours & hours listening to audience recordings of them sounds pretty grim to me. I think I bought about two bootlegs at record fares before I gave up & I stick with the official stuff & the odd soundboard these days. I absolutely love HTWWW & have done since the day it came out.
  24. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    It was indeed in my spam folder, tmtomh, thanks for the tip.
  25. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    I've not received an e-mail (I pre ordered the CDs as soon as this was announced) which is a bit worrying.
