  1. Kennedy Center Honors Dates

    Was Scarlett Sabet not in the picture yet? This took place Dec 2012. If they were dating I would think she would have attended with Page. Somebody here will know the answer
  2. jimmy Page Childhood Photos (37 Photos) Happy Birhtday

    OP: Did you put this collection together?? A fair amount are Jimmy, albeit many are repetitive screen captures from videos on Youtube. Others are definitely not him. For example image number 12 and 32. (12) Most Led Zeppelin fans have common knowledge that Page has never been in the military. Why would he be in the United States Marine Corps? Besides the obvious of it being an American branch. You don't exactly look at Page and say Oorah (32) Jimmy Page and Opie Taylor look-a-like are not the same people. The boy standing with the baby and young girl with his pants rolled up above the ankles looks like a kid whose parents make moonshine in the Appalachian mountain region of West Virginia. I'm all for moonshine and Semper Fi in case somebody mistook my comments as negative!
  3. Any time now.....

    This thread was started April 13 Today is June 5 What is Robert waiting for? If he's doing to this to build up *drum role* momentum for a new album of his, he should have waited a bit longer to put the message "Any Time Now" up on his website, or if not then put a countdown clock hinting to a date when people would find out what "Any Time Now" actually means. I get what's trying to do, but having that message up there for longer than a month it starts to look like a website that's not maintained and forgotten about.
  4. Pamela Des Barres new book

    Yeah I'd be fine with reading a book from Lori. An honest one of the events that took place. Not nonstop occurrences where Page is Mr. Perverted weird slithery Severus Snape type character. Sure there's questionable moments, but talk about something besides the same tired old Page had Cole kidnapped me crap - yawn. I tend to believe she leans on that because that's what interviewers want to hear. What was the real reaction from her mother on her 'dating' Jimmy Page? I always wondered why her mom didn't question Page's intentions. Was there any form of $$$ involved? It would makes sense. 14 year old girl and a 28/9 year Led Zeppelin band member. It's the golden opportunity for someone to take the situation and try and get a payment out of it. Maybe lavish gifts and not an actual monetary pay-off. Still though.... The down thing about a book from Lori is the fact she was on the groupie scene at such a young and vulnerable age. That gives trouble makers the chance to drag names through the mud. I'm not sure how that works since it's something that happened over 45 years ago and neither Lori or her mom seem upset over it. I doubt anything could come of it other than some people having the 'ick' factor over her book. If I could put Lori on a couch and play shrink, I'd say Lori fits the classic profile of a young girl not having a father figure in her life. She currently seems to be doing well for herself. Manager of a trendy boutique in Southern California. She certainly doesn't appear to show any signs of emotional scars at this point in her life. She looks pretty grounded in her late 50s.
  5. Pamela Des Barres new book

    I like that attitude of yours towards us females IpMan!! I can't say I would not be milking it for all it's worth too if I had been in her shoes. She enjoys re-telling about the good-ol' days and at the same time makes some money. The only thing I want to know is what can this book tell readers that her previous books have not? It sounds like it will be more of the same with a side of 'teaching' other groupies how to express their groupie tales in such a way that it can be made into a tell-all-book? Dunno... She has been an open book for a long time, so most of this will likely be a wash rinse and repeat thing. There's obviously still an interest in these 5 decade old stories. It can be interesting to hear, but once you've read a few groupie stories they all end up sounding the same. Enjoy to those of you who will be purchasing.
  6. On the subject of Jason Bonham. I know things like addiction whether cigs, alcohol or drugs can be genetic or influenced by who you surround yourself with, so I'm not surprised Jason in his youth was this loud mouth drunk, but in some of these interviews it sounds like he was told that imitating 'road' John was what he was supposed to do and not because he himself was an actual bar stool throwing drunk. John while touring with Zep had that reputation - off the road not so much. Jason was what.. 15 when his father died. He should know there was more than just THAT side. It's as if he picked up a Richard Cole type book on Led Zeppelin tales and started acting out the John Bonham bits - TV tossing and all. I dunno maybe I'm not making sense. Let's blame it on this fish bowl sized glass of Cabernet I'm drinking. Ha! As far as Jason's talent as a drummer. One thing we know for sure is John Bonham was a big lovin' family guy. After the Oakland incident involving Peter Grant's son, I think at one point in John Bonham's life he would have no issues introducing his fist to somebody's face if they said something insulting about his sons skills as a drummer Yikes! To the original poster. I probably gave my answer already, but if not. Yes I believe they made the best choice to end when John died.
  7. Peter Grant's film archive of Zep?

    Oh I would love to see those. I'm guessing that there would either be a lot of nonsense on them. i.e. garbled sound and the camera pointed at random crap like Bindon's elbow or like you said a "treasure trove" of really cool stuff and candid moments. If there is anything good, hopefully the band and Peter's son would be up to sharing.
  8. Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    Stairway To Heaven legal shit again? I saw this movie in June of 2016. I liked the ending, however I don't want to see the sequel. Skidmore, the two sisters and Francis...Siiiighhh. Judge Klausner gave them their shot. A very generous one allowing it to actually get its day in court too. They had opportunity to gather evidence and present it. What more should the jury take into consideration? Get another Spirit fan to testify they saw what they believed was a raccoon pawing and eating Randy's garbage only to realize 50 years later it was actually Jimmy looking for music compositions to steal. Or maybe Skidmore swears up and down he saw an evergreen bush beside an outdoor toilet at a Spirit gig and he believes it was in the shape of Robert Plant. That would tell the jury Plant was listening to their set-list and getting musical ideas to lift and take back to camp Zep. Guilty right!?!? Oh and Randy's sisters. I'm sure they are Skidmore's biggest cheerleaders. I need to take a moment and vent about those two. Those women are wolves in sheep's clothing. No disrespect aimed at Randy for losing his life to save is son; that's both tragic and very heroic, but in a music copyright case it has no spot in the trial. There is no reason for the jury to know that, other than to try and garner sympathy votes. Last June both sister's stood outside the court house speaking to the media while holding up a gigantic picture of Randy with their mother. It was quite obvious what they were hoping to achieve. They wanted to vilify Led Zeppelin as these wealthy stealing musicians and small little folk like Randy California deserved some of that money all because his life ended tragically in the 90s and a 'charity' is in his name. They wanted people to draw some sort of connecting line between the two. Sorry there isn't a line between Stairway writing credits, the type of son or father Randy California was, or how he passed away. Like I said above a very heroic act regarding his son, but quite skeevy to use it as a way to get a pay-day. I am glad Judge Klausner made sure that had no impact on the jury's decision. The decision was based on musical notes on a paper. If someone is deserving by all means give them their reward, but we don't have that here do we. This case just rubs you the wrong way, especially when you read Francis and is merry band are STILL at it after the jury ruled in Zep's favor. Here's hoping this is one very last desperate attempt from that side that will go unanswered.
  9. Why was JPJ disinvited from Page/Plant?

    I thought so too before I started reading things over the years. I never thought Jones and Plant had an overly close relationship outside of the studio though. Page and Plant that's a different story. But it didn't matter who hung out with who since they all came together on the stage and that's where it counted most. As far as them working closely for I T T O D. I wanna say the drug circle of hell that Page and Bonham were trapped inside of, probably helped push Robert and Jones together. You never hear either say anything fondly about working together at that time. Depending on the interview whenever Jones speaks about I T T O D he never praises it. He doesn't bash it to death either, but several times you can tell by some of his words it doesn't come across like it was a high point in his Zep timeline. It's hard to tell if he means the album itself, the fact Page and Bonham were in bad shape or all above. Maybe that's when he came to realize he and Robert clashed too much. Not as noticeable when all 4 were working regularly together. I wish I could remember where I saw it. An interview where he takes his words back a couple of times and made it sound like the album would have turned out differently if circumstances had been different. I think he could tell the interviewer was about to take his initial words and ask "Was I T T O D a disappointment for you or the band? Because he very quickly added in the record happened the way it did because of his new toy and both Robert and he had already had several tracks laid out. Then usual babble we get with how I T T O D came to be.
  10. Do any bands rival Led Zeppelin

    Zino I'll wager that is a list of names found on another site written by somebody else and unrelated to the subject "Guitar Players better than Jimmy Page" That list is not something you personally came up with yourself. It's something you're using as a prop to help with this fun game you're playing on the Led Zeppelin site As for you ranking all those people above Jimmy. Oh my I feel faint...I need to lie down. You don't have to rank him number 1 or even top 5 (Craaazzzyyy ) but damn to rank him so low makes everybody in the room want to walk away from you at the party and leave you standing all by your lonesome. Apologies to you Zino if you love comic sans and went out of your way to manually type all of those names with such a nice font. It's a fave of mine too. Brings back memories of being a young girl on MSN messenger and chatting about boys.
  11. Hot pics of Jimmy

    Knock knock knock hello? Anybody.. I was half kidding when I brought it up, but nah now I want to know. Any story behind the naked plastic doll thing pinned to Jimmy's lapel in the above image. I don't care make one up if you have to. HA!
  12. ^^^^ Haha oh I don't mind at all. I'm guilty of doing that quite a bit on here. And how would things have worked out if Keith Moon had a Jason Bonham as his son. I think The Who would have gladly utilized that situation to continue on. I know when Moon died it was '78 so they probably would have needed to wait on that though.. Anybody know if Bonzo had a studio in his home? I know the others do, but I have never read anything about John Bonham working at home - other than seeing him with a drum kit. My reason for asking is because if he did would he have have had recorded something that could be used towards something Zep related years later? I'm going to guess no since Jason would have already brought it to the other 3's attention. Err did I just answer my own question???
  13. Why was JPJ disinvited from Page/Plant?

    That in my mind very much continues today - even though the whole Page /Plant work relationship was over years ago. James Patrick puts all of his eggs into the Zeppelin basket and that puts the end to any activity with other musical artists - especially Robert. On No Quarter if Jones had been involved, I don't think Jimmy would have cared if people mistakenly identified or attached Zep's name to it either. (I know it wasn't) That would have only been corrected for Plant. There would have been so many rules though, or Plant would have put the end to it. Speaking of Jonesy being upset still. In the interview that was linked on here a short bit ago he was saying how happy he was to be working with Jimmy again. This was after London O2 of course. That made me sigh ************************************************************************ Reading through some old threads on here I noticed our opinions can and do change. The Jones No Quarter thing has some who were understanding of why Plant did what he did, turn around later and see it as something rather off-putting. Perhaps views may have changed after Plant said he wouldn't be a part of whatever Jimmy, Jones and Jason had cooking. This was a golden opportunity and AGAIN Plant played the roll of giant party pooper. I'll shut up because as much I see those who nit pick on the lack of Jimmy output these days, the other side (like me ) are guilty of pointing the finger at Plant for something. Original poster! Well done! The board often becomes a snooze atmosphere and sometimes a topic like this can spark a lively opinionated conversation!
  14. Why was JPJ disinvited from Page/Plant?

    I think these questions get brought up by those who maybe like the idea of hearing thoughts from other Zeppelin fans on the actual Zeppelin board rather than Google random sites. Sometimes asking on here is so much better since a lot of you guys can provide fantastic info. I don't overly believe somebody is asking in hopes of getting people riled up. I don't think there was ever a "Jones and Plant" thing even with the making of In Through The Out Door. That was smoke and mirrors. They were working more closely in the studio opposed to Page and Plant because Jimmy was in bed with smack. Bonham too was in bad shape As to why Jones was not included? It was never meant to be a reunion and having Jones there would have made it that way. I think it hit a sour notes because they worked on Zeppelin songs.... songs that Jones had a hand in writing. I do believe Page would have been fine with Jones being a part of the No Quarter project, but at that time he probably didn't want to rock the boat with Plant. I read an interview AFTER the O2 from Jones. Like Strider says, it took time and Jones wasn't happy, but he said he has moved on and it's now water under the bridge.
  15. Oh yeah that's right The Chase. I forgot about The Beatles doing that song. Even if there are [which nobody knows for sure] some leftover goodies courtesy of John Bonham; Nothing will/would ever come of it. Jimmy doesn't play guitar any longer and even if he did, Plant would be deader than dead against it. Now Jones is the easy going middle man. I could see him being curious and interested about the idea if he was approached, but he would know well enough not to get that keen on it because somebody would stomp on that idea fast.
