  1. I have pointed out before that essentially no one under 30 has ever seen Jimmy Page deliver a concert length performance.
  2. Well, if HE still believes that... We could quibble over this as well...but there's little point.
  3. The Rest in Peace Thread...people are just dying to get mentioned here.
  4. Given the sustained, remarkable level of interest in the Zeppelin Mysteries thread in the main forum, I thought this would be the right time to launch a Photo Forum thread strictly for the purpose of examining obscure Led Zeppelin & related photographs. If you have a photo you are seeking to match against a specific date, concert, event, location or trying to identify someone depicted with them you've come to the right place. To get things started, I wish to submit this photograph of Page, Bonham & Plant astride Suzuki motorcycles. I seek any additional details:
  5. Jimmy Page? He had some great years but he's nowhere near being the greatest showman of all time. We could argue over who that is (at least five others come immediately to mind) but there's little point.
  6. You can bet he'll bring it up again the next time he has promotional duties to fulfill.
  7. Possibly a fan backstage prior to the show. Here's another: http://www.ledzeppelin.com/image/hamburg-1970-backstage
  8. So it seems it was tomfoolery prior to the encore after all. I was going to mention they reportedly traveled from the airport by chartered bus, having declined the venue (or promoter's) offer to transport them directly to the site by helicopter. They arrived at 9:10 pm for a 9:30 start (90 minutes late). The point being they had no time for any pre-show hi-jinks onstage such as this in Pontiac.
  9. Correct. The New Inn underwent significant renovations prior to becoming an Indian restaurant about eight years ago. See link below. Although the Maltstone is a pub the interior and exterior have undergone significant renovations. Bonzo would barely recognize it were he alive today.
  10. Outstanding! The pride of ownership is evident.
  11. Welcome to my thread, won't you come inside. Miracles may happen, every now & again. This thread is going to be about UNSOLVED LED ZEPPELIN MYSTERIES. I am the thread starter and these are my guidelines: 1. Stay on topic. If your post doesn't pertain to an Unsolved Led Zeppelin Mystery you will be placed on ignore. 2. Anyone can post what THEY believe to be an Unsolved Led Zeppelin Mystery, or respond to one already posted. If you make a claim that solves a mystery be prepared to SUBSTANTIATE IT (news article, photo, credentials, etc). 3. NO BLACK MAGIC / BACKWARDS MASKING posts. I WILL ignore you. Enjoy the thread! Here's hoping we can all solve a mystery or two together.
  12. Gorgeous instruments!
  13. He uses the men's room, so you're quite safe.
  14. It's either a Poll or an Other Artists post, pick one.
  15. Yeah, well if your side had it's way men wouldn't even know which bathroom to use.
  16. Nah, it's about sole (fish) in part about getting the best deal at the fish market. In fact, the working title was Salmon to Heaven.
  17. Weiss attended several of their concerts and there are photos and video of him with them. He also appears in TSRTS (in dark sunglasses at :12 of the clip below).
  18. ^^^ JPJ looks great. Rock royalty.
  19. ...which has pretty much already been done before with Jimmy & Robert on the In The Studio radio program with Redbeard.
  20. It's unlicensed merchandise (call it a fake, a bootleg, whatever) most likely produced in the past few years.
  21. You are correct, and it's because Page in large part was the one pushing for remasters for the umpteenth time. They agree to it, but he is the one to handle the majority of the promotional duties.
  22. If so, here's hoping he updated/upgraded the band first.
  23. As far as a full blown, proper retrospective, why bother? For one thing, John Bonham is gone as is Peter Grant. For another, there are so many television and radio documentaries/interviews already on the record it's hard to imagine there's anything left unsaid. So as I think about this, a 50th Anniversary event or feature, the only thing that makes sense is something similar to what The Beatles did for Anthology, specifically where the surviving members got together in those relaxed, unstructured situations to discuss and reflect upon the past. As we've said, video footage to accompany it simply doesn't exist, and the use of too many photos stills turns it into Ken Burns Civil War. So just get them together in three or four relaxed situations, let the cameras roll and take a devil may care approach to it. Imagine Page, Plant and Jones reunited at the Chateau Marmont to discuss 1968-1972, the lobby of a London hotel to discuss 1973-1976, and a final discussion in a Berlin hotel to discuss 1977-1980. Unsure if these talks are open to the public or not (I'm thinking not as these should be intimate discussions, producing candor and laughter between them) but the public may encounter them around town. Edit it down, press it to dvd and make tons of $$$, a portion of which should be sent to me for the concept. You're all welcome
  24. There will never be a Led Zeppelin Anthology or something similar to Crossfire Hurricane because the footage simply does not exist. They can't even scrape together enough worthwhile footage to release a second retrospective dvd. On the other hand, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones are two of the most documented popular music groups of all time.
  25. They carried you out of on a stretcher.
