  1. It's funny, I was a little disappointed in his performance on SIBLY on Unledded because at that time the fiery Song Remains The Same version was burned on my brain. Listening to it now I think it's great and tasteful.
  2. I think some forget (I know you don't) that outside of STH at ARMS, neither Jimmy nor Robert regularly played any Zep in their sets until 1988. It was a big decision and a big deal when they both played Zep tunes on their respective solo tours that year, eight long years after the band broke up...
  3. Okay, clearly it didn't get a great reception out of YOU, that's your right. My point is that he got an incredible reception on the whole. I also thought it was brave of him NOT to lean on Zeppelin at the time but that's just my opinion.
  4. I don't think the public could have possibly been any more receptive than they were, even with the emphasis on Death Wish material. Pete Townsend was in the Garden and said when Jimmy walked onstage the place was actually bouncing, he was blown away by it. I think Jimmy could have played Mary Had A Little Lamb and gotten the same reception at that point!
  5. Yet young music fans I know hold Zeppelin, and Jimmy, in much higher esteem than they do people like Clapton, Beck, etc.
  6. Wasn't wild about Farlowe's contribution to Prison Blues (mainly lyrically), but I really liked his vocals on Blues Anthem and loved his work on Hummingbird, one of my very favorite post-Zep performances by Jimmy. This is cool, JImmy is clearly doing things that turn him on, and ONLY things that turn him on. Good for him!
  7. One of the things I've always liked about Jimmy is that he seems to be a "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything," kind of guy, with rare expections. I wonder if he's puzzled by the fact that lots of his peers, who claim to respect him as a guitarist, are so outspoken in their dislike of his "baby". I mean, Clapton gets visually agitated when he's asked about Zeppelin, or in "Beware of Mr. Baker" when Bonzo comes up in relation to Ginger Baker. Even his old friend Beck has made some crappy statements about Jimmy from time to time over the years, not to mention Keith and lesser lights like Nugent, etc.
  8. Cannot and will not speak for Steven A, but he seems to have some pretty good connections on this stuff. I doubt the poster was the ONLY thing that led him to believe Jimmy would perform.
  9. So people who paid to see Jimmy play got to see Johnny Depp play while Jimmy handed out yet another award? Sorry to hear that Steve, what a disappointment. And he's still talking about next year. Why he seems to get such a kick out of messing with his fans is a mystery, so weird and uncalled for.
  10. If both parties wanted it to happen it would have happened at some point between 2007 and now. I'll never say never but I don't expect to see them play together again
  11. Mason Ruffner, I was there!
  12. At the risk of being redundant I couldn't disagree with you more. He was clearly surprised to be handed a guitar, had no thoughts on playing until that moment, and didn't know what to do. Would be great if they tossed him an acoustic, he quickly tuned to DADGAD, then played a flawless White Summer but let's be real. Same Old Rock with Harper is a more reasonable test of his latter-day chops and he passed with flying colors. Nonetheless, I hope you get to see him play in November and I hope he lives up to your expectations.
  13. The whole "French TV" evaluation of his performance is way, way overdone. WAY overdone.
  14. Would be awesome but I'll believe it when I see it.
