  2. Led Zeppelin - Tape Boxes Rough/Working Mixes

    Great stuff! I wish "The Rover" Rough Mix was included on the companion discs.
  3. Led Zeppelin Photo Mysteries

    Whoa...does that say 5/21/77? Very interesting.
  4. Looking Ahead: the Next Three Releases - Presence ITTOD and Coda

    "In the Evening" Rough Mix is availble for purchase in mp3 format on Amazon. The preview is from the intro, and it sounds quite different. Haven't bought it yet. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YGIX4UU/ref=dm_ws_tlw_trk8 If anybody buys it, please report back! Thanks, hercoflex
  5. Maybe that's why it's an OUTTAKE!
  6. The Gov't Mule thread

    Love this band, have seen them numerous times since 1998. I was at The Deepest End show. Just saw them in N.O. on April 24. They love New Orleans and play here all the time...usually during Jazz Fest. Gov't Mule is playing at Shepherds Bush Empire on 25 May. It would be so cool if Jimmy went and checked them out. I'm not expecting a jam, but hopefully just a hang. JPJ has indeed developed a good relationship with them since Bonnaroo. Wish Jimmy would too. -hercoflex
  7. page/plant '95 - authorized taping?

    Just came across this topic - I was in the tapers section at MSG in October '95. I was also near the tapers section at the 2nd New Orleans show on March 11. Didn't Robert say on "Rockline" that they got the idea to have a taper's section after he and Jimmy went to a Grateful Dead show? Does anybody else recall this? It was the "Rockline" interview Jimmy and Robert did right before the HOF Induction. I have it on a cassette buried somewhere. Does anybody know the date of that Grateful Dead show? Did they just go to the show or did they hang with Jerry and the boys backstage? -hercoflex
  8. Pete Townshend on LZ

    From a recent interview with Pete Townshend: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/whos-done-pete-townshends-ambivalent-farewell-20150507 "I spoke with Robert Plant last year. He basically suggested that Led Zeppelin was something he did when he was younger and he has no desire to go back there. Can you understand that sort of attitude? I completely understand that, of course I do, but I don't want to say what leaps into my mind. Robert could probably do everything that he wants to do. He could do the occasional Led Zeppelin comeback and make a lot of people very happy. There's a kind of churlishness to that [opinion]. But he's his own man, and he has to make his own decisions. The person that I've thought a lot about since John Bonham's death is John Paul Jones. He's a beautiful looking man and a beautiful musician. He's a fantastic experimenter in modern electronic music and other things, and he's sort of been sitting there. It would be interesting to see what he could bring to a new Led Zeppelin project. I think he was much more in the front line of Led Zeppelin music on keyboard work because nobody else in the band played it. It was a prog rock era in respect to him. I get the sense that Jimmy really misses the band and is really frustrated with Robert for refusing to tour. Well, of course Jimmy's problem is also different because he spent so much time just literally shut away. I don't know if he had come back in the earlier years if he would have survived. He did a short tour alongside the Who and eventually had to stop because he pulled his back. It's interesting because, of course, Robert is managed by our same manager, and Jimmy used to be as well. It must be very interesting for our manager to deal with me and Roger and Robert and mirror one artist against the other. Bill [Curbishley] seems to be delighted with Roger because he knows what he wants. I don't think that I do. I grope around quite a bit. One day I'll wake up, call Bill and tell him that I want to go on tour. He'll say, "Listen, this is going to take eight months to put together." By the time it's together I call him up early in the morning and say, "I don't want to go on tour." But at least Robert knows what he's going to be doing next. He seems to be very clear. That's true. Think of the money he's leaving on the table by refusing to do a Led Zeppelin tour. Well, I think there are other similar parties in the industry. The thing is, when you work on your own, you have control, and that must be important to Robert. I don't want to talk too much about him — he's a good friend and I really do respect him. But I wonder whether it would be possible for Robert to carry that sense of ironic absurdity that I feel I can carry with the Who. Led Zeppelin were kind of a sexier band than the Who. We can still do what we do as old men. Our audience is about 70 percent male. We can get away with looking ridiculous, at least I think we can.

  9. Looking Ahead: the Next Three Releases - Presence ITTOD and Coda

    Since the last rumor was "late summer", and Jimmy is all into seasonal phenomena like the end of summer/Autumn Equinox, these last 3 could be released as late as 9/22, which is the closet Tuesday to the last day of Summer. So, if that is the case (which is total speculation on my part), then an announcement won't come until late June, since in the past, it's been about 12 weeks between announcement date and release date. I hope I'm wrong, and the announcement is tomorrow, which would make the release date the week of July 27! -hercoflex
  10. Really? I've never heard that before.
  11. Available at Newstands (Nearly) Everywhere

    Nice! Thanks, Sam. Need to get this and that Blues mag as well.
  12. Page Playing the Piano?

    I've wondered that myself. That same piano sequence (recorded much later and professionally, of course) is on the companion disc of the Death Wish II Soundtrack on the new Soundtracks Box Set. I assume it's not Page on that track.
