  1. That was a Robert Plant biography by Michael Gross. I have it and, for what it is, it was an ok read.
  2. Also playing April 16th, 2017 with the Minibus Pimps at the Festival Présences électronique 2017.
  3. It looks like JPJ will be playing the Ice Station Vadsø festival again:
  4. Short clip of Kashmir... http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/robert-plant-performs-led-zeppelin-kashmir-in-full-for-first-time-without-jimmy-page-video/
  5. Great stuff Steve. Nice to see these.
  6. Brown U Herald, Apr 5, 85 and Mar 7, 86
  7. I've raised this before, but if the band no longer existed...then wouldn't that have eliminated any requirement for another album? I've always found this last contractual album a little tough to explain, as much as I am glad it did come out. Subsequent greatest hits packages also came out on Atlantic, so they didn't change labels after the completion of the "contractual obligation". What if there had been no usable tapes available? Could Atlantic have forced Jimmy to reform a band to fulfil the obligations (highly doubtful)? Did the contract have a clause giving them rights over any post-Zeppelin music by the former members in the case that Zeppelin didn't fulfil it's obligations?
  8. Sad news. He was definitely one of the first to journalists to support the band, and his first book on the band was a must read (and the only one available for a long time). RIP
  9. Wow, nice work. That absolutely looks like Rufus Jones. Querying on Google actually brings up images from what looks to be the same photo session. So the Degree of Murder session photos somehow have unrelated(?) photos of Rufus Jones overlaid onto them. What about the silhouette on the right?
  10. I too have seen Kenney Jones credited as the drummer time and time again, but of course that is not Kenney Jones. Given Brian Jones statement above, it literally could be anyone. However, Bill Wyman has refuted he (Wyman) was involved, and there is nothing to suggest any of the other Stones were involved either. Edited to add: Looking at those two photos again it seems to me the drummer image is superimposed and not actually a reflection in the glass. In other words, it's a theme or motif shot as opposed to a historically accurate shot. I could be wrong. It wasn't September 5th, 66 since Jimmy was either in California or on his way to Hawaii with the Yardbirds. Jimmy's web site just used the first date from the Rolling Stones database, but other dates are listed (e.g the 11th of February). The image of the drummer definitely looks out of place. I seem to recall that the photos were taken by Ian Stewart. Maybe he was behind the "collage".
  11. Oh he will play. I want to hear the Fillmore 69 Lemon Song intro live. It's a virtual party, virtually anything goes....
  12. It's good to be here...so where's the stage, I hear Jimmy's going to drop by with his guitar ;-) ? Where's that confounded bar, I'm thirsty.
