    Just tried to pass on and share what was aired on the radio and getting offended and mocked? ... Yes guys, you are "true Fans". Just wondering we haven't met as I witnessed Zep four times and and travelled even to France or the UK to dozens of shows of The Firm, Plant or Page*Plant after they disbanded. Yes, taking your advises I'll shit prospectively somehere else ... PS: Grant's and Bonham's behaviour and reputation are well documented elsewhere ... no need to get on with it. Go and ask the guy from Musicland, whose boots were cooked as stew after he has been threatened by a drunken Bonham with a knife - and he didn't think it was that funny as Plant recalled the story.

    and " this Reinhold Mack feller" worked besides "Presence" as producer and engineer for Queen, Stones, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, ELO - an impressive legacy ...

    Maybe it's the way it was translated from German to English, but it sure sounds like this Reinhold Mack feller did some major embellishing to the story. I would like to see the link to this broadcast. https://www.swr.de/swr1/bw/programm/leu ... index.html
  4. Here's one for the gossip: just listened to a podcast from german radio SWR1 which was aired 2013 featuring an interview with Reinhold Mack, the famously engineer and producer from Musicland Studio known as "Mack". Although never mentioned in the credits he was working with Zep in the studio, because Keith Harwood wasn't able to show up, due to his drug habits. Mack described how difficult it was for Robert Plant, to move through the cramped studio with his wheelchair and avoiding this ways Plant establised himself in the cabin where he sang his vocals with drinks and food, sitting there for hours. Naturally he had necessities and used to pass away discreetly through a backdoor, where he took a piss down the staircase. One day Robert was missed and Mack found him there with stripped down trousers, asking him "are you decent?" They took Robert to a nearby Hospital in a taxi where Plant was laying at the emergency room beneath a biker, who was just rushed in after a crash. The nursing staff took care of the biker, who was injured seriously und bleeding heavy. According to Mack, right now Peter Grant walked in with his big suitcase full of cash money. He opened the bag and advised the cargivers "let him die, just take care of my boy. What does it cost?"
  5. Jimmy Page / Robert Plant - Bangkok, Thailand Oct. 1972 - RARE PICS

    Great photos, what a find. Thanks very much!
  6. Robert Plant joining Lampedusa Concert For Refugees Tour in October

    Thanks for the info news and great pictures.

    "The kind you would use for screening your Home movies ." Claude Nobs filmed 100's of the shows he promoted in Montreux and stocked'em in his private archive ...
  8. Hot pics of Jimmy

    Just would like to point out, it was the late and great JEFF BUCKLEY who said that at a concert in Australia, as Jimmy Page and Robert Plant sat in the audience and Jimmy told that tale later in an interview.
  9. Robert Plant performing at festivals

    ... wouldn´t expect a 2hour show - Robert doesn´t play that long anymore, anywhere. Suspecting an afternoon appearance I guess he'll play for an hour plus encores. An appearance at the annual Pinkpop usually means broadcasts on FM and dutch TV ...
  10. Led Zeppelin 7/3/80-Mannheim

    Thanks, already have the recommended "Final Acclaim" and Dave´s even more detailed "Feather In The Wind" too and if you know Mannheim, you´d understand why Plant, Jones and Bonzo were anxious for the weekend in Munich ...
  11. Led Zeppelin 7/3/80-Mannheim

    Have seen both sold-out shows on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd of July in Mannheim (and Munich too). The Ice-Stadium in Mannheim was not a building, more a little, partly walled stadium oval roofed with a big canvas tent over it. It had a capacity of 8.500 and the house was more than packed each night - Zep were late, no matter what the ticket said,and yes, there were no more trains leaving afterwards, what meant spending two nights in sleeping bag on the hard floors at the station in those wet, cold summer days and being waked up at dawn by the railway police. First night Jimmy was late on his way from Frankfurt(where he performed with Santana the night before) and as far as I can remember, by 8.30PM Promoter Fritz Rau came on stage and apologized for the delay, asking for patience. As Zep entered the stage it was 9.30PM - first night was much hotter than the next, an ecstastic rowdy atmosphere and smells of weed all over the place, as there were thousands of GI's, based in Ramstein, Frankfurt and Heidelberg. I was deeply touched as I witnessed, how those tough and drunken guys were literally driven to tears and started crying like little nasty boys as Jimmy played the opening chords of "Stairway To Heaven" 2nd night they came on a bit earlier, but not sooner as 9.00PM and although the crowd was even more enthusiastic, it seemed the whole evening like Zep were on a rush - speeding up the whole event and finally they stayed on stage between 1st and 2nd encore and nailed down a quick "Communication B´down" with Jimmy soloing on his knees instead of "Whole Lotta Love". This impression could easily be proved by audience recordings, lasting approx 130 minutes for the first but only 115 minutes for the 2nd night. Would really appreciate photos from these shows, as they will bring back and lighten up great memories.
  12. Robert Plant Performing Live in 2014

    German ROLLING STONE is announcing two shows for ROBERT PLANT & SSS on July 16, 2014 in Berlin and July 17, 2014 in Dresden.
  13. European Tour 1973

    Which version of Offenburg is the one to get? Try "Live In Offenburg - The Eddie Edwards Mix" pulled together from three different audience-sources ...
  14. European Tour 1973

    Quote: "I, myself, prefer Offenburg a tad more, even though it's lacking Dancing Days. Jimmy's guitar sounds razor sharp, and I like the atmosphere you get with the audience tape, which is a little rough at the start but clears up once Over the Hills and Far Away begins." Totally agree with that opinion ... and regard it as one of their best performances ever, because Jimmy`s playing that evening was not from this world
  15. What is the best version of 6/2/1973 Kezar Stadium, CA?

    ... would recommend Godfather's "A Celebration For Being Who You Are" too. Best audio quality, the complete show and packaged very nicely.
