    Led Zeppelin vs Deep Purple

    'Tommy Bolin can't play for shit!' Ah, come on, it was only a joke when Bonzo said it the first time...

    Walking Into Clarksdale - Rediscovered

    Exactly - a point that's usually overlooked. I'm no fan of Albini's (I'd say he actually ruined P.J. Harvey's Dry - the earlier Peel sessions versions of those songs sounded far better). Most Albini 'recordings' sound flat and lack dynamics and that's certainly the case with a lot of WIC, but Robert and Jimmy produced it and signed off on it - and Charlie Jones actually remixed some stuff for b-sides and those versions also sound flat and lifeless. There's more at fault with WIC than just Albini.

    "Okay" heard in Achilles?

    I've never heard the phone ring in The Ocean or the squeaky bass drum in SIBLY and I can't hear this either - sorry! I don't actually want to hear these things, though - once I hear that damn squeak, I'm sure I won't be able to UNhear it...
  4. 106. That's okay - I've felt about 110 for the last 25 years, so...

    The True King of Rock and Roll

    Hah, I read this thinking it was going to a Little Richard thread...
  6. Jimmy will probably want to spend three years bringing the quality of those 12-14 hours of footage up to date from 2003 standards first, though...
  7. And me. I was born in, like, 1804 or summat and I've only got computer and internet access at work, no smartphone, nowt. This is Yorkshire - it's like 1985 round ere...

    Back in the late '80s/early '90s, this bloke, Fred Robbins, was a Banshees uber fan and basically made his living selling tapes and videos of them. At one point, he put hundreds of his rare Banshees photos onto VHS and sold that - basically, a photogallery of stills on video. I never bothered with it, so I don't know how they looked - but could this be from something similar? Maybe one of a series of photos on an old VHS, hence the lines that look like the tracking was off, copied to dvd? I dunno. Just a thought.
  9. Studio Magick is the one for you, then, macdog.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    I once punched a gaffer into a trench. Well, he called me a 'cunt' and when I said I wasn't a cunt, he tried to throw me into the trench and when that failed he threw a punch that missed, so, y'know, what option did I have, really? Frightfully unseemly for an excavation in the grounds of the vicarage at Wath Upon Dearne but, well, this was 1980, so I was a bit livelier then! There's probably a queue to knock Robbie Williams into a trench...

    Tea For One

    Tea For One is a wonderful song. Have to say, I've never seen it as a divisive song - I know some people say it's too long and others compare it to Since I've Been Loving You, but I think it's perfect as it is and I actually prefer it to SIBLY. Tea For One resonates with me more. Robert sounds like he means it - like it's personal and he's inhabiting the lyric, not just singing it. Given the circumstances, you believe him. Jimmy's guitar matches the mood and sentiment perfectly, too. Wonderful stuff.

    Jimmy's mystery necklace

    After all the 'partially gay' stuff in the other thread, I was hesitant to look at this 'necklace' post...
  13. I've only heard two Kiss songs - and one of those was a cover. I serious on u ass!
