Why was JPJ disinvited from Page/Plant?

I was totally unaware that Plant and Johnstone had a falling out...any media on it?

None that I'm aware of, aside from the quote posted earlier. Unsure if there ever was a falling out or if their collaboration had simply run its course. Then again, perhaps a personality clash developed as time went on. I very distinctly recall an MTV Rock Block telecast from May 1993 with Robert and the band filmed at the Kings Head in Fulham. Phil seems somewhat detached throughout, and then, while leaning back against the stage, his heels slip and he momentarily loses his balance. It's at around 2:20 of the clip below. If Robert had noticed and wanted to laugh out loud about it, he didn't.

Even in 85'( even now, actually) guitar synths were toys for guitarists to play

around with at home, and a good keyboard/synth could almost always sound better than a guitar synth, and do 

emulations of other instruments better.

Hmmmm.... not sure I agree with any of that. Jimmy certainly didn't think so.

The Wembley Stadium jam was June 7, 2008. In Nov/Dec 2008, JPJ was in the states playing various gigs, after which he attended Grohl's 40th birthday party at Medieval Times in Los Angeles in January 2009. Dave purposefully sat JPJ beside Josh Homme. JPJ, Grohl and Homme got together a couple days after the birthday party at Homme's home studio, Baby Duck Studios. Their first jam lasted about thirty minutes. They jammed a second time the following day, and agreed they should form a band. JPJ then returned to England. JPJ returned to Baby Duck Studios in February 2009, and the three began working two weeks on and two weeks off for about eight weeks from noon to 3 am. The rest is history. 

 

 

To make the most overrated collection of songs ever.  Awful LP.

Agreed. Anything Grohl has done since a drummer boy behind Kurt has been garbage IMO. The "Pillow Biters" are just total pop crap.

Robbie Blunt said that Robert sent him a guitar synth and basically told him to get on with it. Blunt apparently struggled with it and didn't get very far - but when he complained to Robert, he was told 'Well, Jimmy gets on fine with his'! benji LeFevre apparently phoned Jimmy's guitar tech for advice and was told that Jimmy had already given up on guitar synths and had 'thrown his out the f*cking window'! To cap it off, Robert then made Blunt pay for the guitar synth himself - Jimmy's clearly not the only Led Wallet...  

As for Grohl, he came up with a great drum part for Killing Joke's 'The Death And Resurrection Show' but according to Jaz Coleman, he recorded each element of the kit separately and composited it together! Each to their own, I guess...
