    The pics of Jimmy with the t-shirt and scarf look like they are from the May 2 1969 Rose Palace show, where he is still using the Dragon Fender Telecaster (last legs) and incorporating the Gibson Les Paul more.
  2. Led Zeppelin Mag

    I have it as well.
  3. Yardbirds '68 out Nov 5th

    Received the two album set today from JimmyPage.com and listened to all of it. A big improvement in the sound of the Anderson Theater show. Happy that the audience overdubs were removed. The studio set also sounded great as well. Especially enjoyed the track Spanish Blood. Definitely a departure from the standard music The Yardbirds were known for. The booklet design reminded me of Zeppelin bootlegs released from Italy back in the 80-90s. (Not sure if Jimmy was going for that effect)
  4. Plant's vocals on I'm Gonna Crawl

    I think the whole band were at there best on this track. A great send-off.
  5. Led Zep News said it was deleted. I wonder if he lost a job?
  6. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. That is what this forum is for. But when someone starts their message "are you high?" That says more of them then me.
  7. No, not high - and I don't do drugs buddy. You DO realize how the mellotron gets those sounds? Where they come from? Hummmm? Someone playing a recorder.
  8. Plenty live on 6Music today

    It irks me when Plant performs the Zeppelin songs because he says is no longer a "rock and roll singer" and doesn't want to be a "stadium act" anymore. He has an extensive solo catalog to chose from and I wished he had the same attitude he had back when he started a solo career.
  9. Tom Petty

    RIP Tom. Thanks for the music.
  10. I never claimed it was gospel. unfortunately, it is the only publication out there with documentation. ( Welsh actually talks to Dave Peg (bass player from A Way of Life) Bonzo's Drum tech etc including specifics as to how many springs were on the snare and at what time) (Dave Peg states that Bonzo was using a green sparkle Ludwig in the Band) It is your opinion about it being "clear" that the Marquee gig is a Slingerland. I don't share that opinion. The lugs size alone doesn't match the Slingerland. The book doesn't mention anywhere Bonzo owning a Slingerland. It does mention him owning s few Gretsch kits. I believe one can be seen in the recently uncovered 1968 promo for Babe I'm Gonna Leave You. Not the John Bonham bible or encyclopedia but a fair representation of Bonzo's equipment. The bottom line to the book was Bonzo was a Ludwig player all the way.
  11. Tried to find another larger scan of the Marquee photo. Best one I could find was from Led Zeppelin: The Concert File by Dave Lewis. I scanned the image. Then took the image and removed the red/orange to take a closer look at the logo behind Jimmy's knee. I zoomed in on the image to see the black shadow (which is the logo) and it does't appear to be a "d". The upper stem of the letter is not showing as black there. (Lead me to believe it is a "g".)
  12. We agree to disagree. Note that in the A Thunder of Drums book, the other kits that Bonham owned nowhere is a Slingerland kit listed. I believe the kit was rented for the first tour before recording LZ I. Given that the Marquee gig is local (within England) Bonzo probably used his own kit.
  13. Looks like a Ludwig to me. (It is subjective and difficult) But compare the metal lugs on the Tom-Tom. The Ludwig looks larger.
  14. Documented in John Bonham A Thunder of Drums Bonzo had used a Ludwig Kit as far back as the Band of Joy days. (He was using one when with Tim Rose in summer of 1968)
