    Is Jimmy Page done making music?

    He’s such a great acoustic player, I’d go insane for an album of acoustic instrumentals.

    ARMS Benefit Concerts in NYC Dec 1983

    To clarify the Michael Palin quote is referring to shows at Royal Albert Hall not MSG

    Page is on the record saying MSG was great, but he wished he wasn’t so rusty.

    1977 SHOWS RANKED INTO 3 CATEGORIES

    Im a big LA77 fan. Big 77 fan in general ! I wish MSG 77 was better represented sonically. I’ve never been able to get deep into those shows for that reason. my random 77 thoughts 6/7 I’m not a fan of because Jimmy is just too rough. Energetic, but rough. 5/22 I think one of best energetic shows of tour. 5/30 Bonzo sounds asleep 5/26 one of my personal faves very relaxed dynamic show with some nice fluid playing from Jimmy 6/23 my fave Zep show ever Jimmys best night of tour imho 5/21 I think is decent esp end of show 4/27 Jimmy is weak 7/17 ok in some parts when Jimmy wakes up later on and Roberts voice warms up. Strong Bonzo show 6/21 legendary show super energy but again, IMHO Jimmy a little too coked up and frantic in parts, still epic possible best Bonzo performance ever 6/25 solid show Jimmy very inspired in parts Robert very strong but Bonzo has downshifted 7/20 😂😂😂😂

    The Trouble with Bonham. 1978-80

    Alcoholism made him a Jekyll/Hyde kinda person, very tragic. Alcohol is a depressant, I’m sure that didn’t help his confidence either.

    Nitpicking Page 1973

    I disagree with premise of this thread. Other years I understand but....... It should be titled “Appreciating Page 1973”

    Jimmy doesn't play electric at London home?

    I thought the scenes in Jimmys basement from IMGL were filmed at Tower House?

    Redditch to erect a statue of John Bonham in his honour

    Great to see it’s finally there! Cheers to the folks that made it happen.
  14. Re: Tuning Back in the day, shit just didn’t stay in tune. The technology of the time just wasn’t as good. Add the fact Jimmy used ultra light strings, and the fact that Les Pauls are notorious for not staying in tune, well there’s your recipe. i mean, don’t even get me started on poor Jimmys Strat in 79-80, but again, these were the days before locking nut tuners, etc etc its of its time
