  1. Oops...., saw that I already posted on this thread. This may be deleted...
  2. I know, I know, I should be around on these forums for often. I remember reading about Alan Rickman's passing on FaceBook. Truly was gutted too, hearing this awful news. Wonderful actor and a wonderful human being (indeed, from many accounts of others who worked with Alan. All mention his kindness, warmth and great sense of humour....). And yes...., he had THAT voice....
  3. Cool band indeed. Don't own their album, but found it on Spotify. Wonder what the chances are of them doing something again..........? (Would surely go and see them play, if it was possible,,,,,,) Maaike
  4. January 20th, Sass Jordan @ "Het Paard van Troje" here in The Hague. Should be great!
  5. G&L

    Yup, mine too, is truly a quality instrument! You are right, they have less resale value and recognition than orginal Fenders...., I totally think I received a great guitar for my money! Ha ha, even my guitar teacher thinks it's a great guitar. I bought it because I wanted a guitar that isn't too heavy and is comfortable to play. I am pretty short, so something like a Les Paul would be too bulky and heavy for me......
  6. Ok Ok, I haven't been on these forums lately, so I didn't post my birthday wishes for Jimmy (I did on FaceBook). Wow, 72 years old, may there be many more years, filled with happiness, health and (hopefully) music. ....
  7. I suppose I agree, everything about JImmy being sloppy or not has been said in this topic. Yes, I guess that indeed is the thing with many Led Zep songs, they oftem require more "attitude" than flawless technique to make them sound right..... Ha ha, for me personally as a hobby guitar player, that is very hard to accomplish. My teacher is teaching me to play Stevie Ray Vaugn's Pride and joy, I know Stevie Ray did have an incredible technique and still managed to make the songs sound very loose. Ha ha, I do get the chords and notes right, now I have to see if I can play the blues with the right attitude.....(the hardest part....) Maaike
  8. This seems interesting, thanks for this write up on Boleskine House. So sad that iit has been distroyed in a large fire. I hope the true cause of the fire will be found.......
  9. Am a moderate Star Wars fan (not a total fanatic, but I do like the movies) and saw The force awakens during my Christmas holiday. Loved the movie, it was good to see the old gang (Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chubacca, Luke) as well as getting to know the new characters. The overall experience was fantatstic, the only thing that could hae been a bit better was the sory line as it is a lot like the story line form Episode IV, A new hope....... LOL! Yes, the scene with Mark Hamil also reminded me of Jimmy in his fantasy scene in The song remains the same, as the hermit. Maaike
  10. Happy belated birthday Jonesey!
  11. I realize I am not on these forums very often these days, times are simply busy. I do hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! Happy new year to all of you, may 2016 bring you happiness and good health! Maaike
  12. Happy Thanksgiving fellow Zep heads!
  13. I haven't been on these forum for a while, i know....... (well, I've just been very busy). This discussion made me think.... I feel the same as Disco Duck does I suppose. A part of me is very curious and wants to know what makes Jimmy tick. Another part of me respects the fact that Jimmy refuses to be more outspoken about himself. I think somehow he is quite right, about not wanting to bare his sould, just for entertainment purposes....... We have enough young popstars/celebrities who do just throw everything out there, on social media, not the smartest thing to do..... The fact the JImmy leaves us some questions about himself/his personality, also makes him all the more interesting. .
  14. Tonight I will be seeing the Golden Earring. At a club no less, the "Paard van Troje" (Trojan Horse). This should be special as they usually play much larger venues, festivals, concert halls or arenas. And yes, in the 70's they opened for Led Zep and Aerosmith.....Still a very good band, especially guitarist George Kooymans, that man is great (He's no Jimmy, but still a VERY good guitar player).
