    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    Just wanted to say Derek: Thanks for putting these here. It's easy to get cynical when you see the headline "new Zeppelin thing found" as there have been so many mislabellings, etc. E.g. the recent tape of Gladsaxe Sept '68. So it's been lovely to see a genuine one and those are great pics too.
  2. He said he still records on it, though doesn't play it onstage. And they must have played that many shows by '75, 150 in 1968/9 alone!😮
  3. JPJ, the musician's musician. I love the way he still has the '62 Jazz bass, that must have been thru what, 250+ shows?
  4. Wondered if anyone on here had seen this gem from 2007. Jonesy's work with a US folk / bluegrass band, and he makes a cameo as the piano player!

    Oblique reference to the Rain Song?!

    For 40 year old photos these are fantastic quality! Brilliant stuff Derek. Now, if previously unknown pictures can emerge after all this time, how about previously unknown recordings....

    LED ZEPPELIN OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED BOOK - COMING 2018

    It's so typical of his sense of humour though. Puncturing the Zeppelin mystique.

    "My peers flirt with cabaret Some fake the rebel yell I'm moving up to higher ground I must escape their hell" Tin Pan Valley. His view on botoxed up hair dyed ageing rockers couldn't be clearer. Thank God Plant's aged with dignity.

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    I wonder if Tyler suggesting bringing in Marti Frederiksen brought back Mickie Most / Little Games style flashbacks for Page?! "outside songwriter? bugger off!"

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    I would've happily switched out Misty Mountain Hop for In The Evening, and Trampled for Achilles. According to Mick Wall Plant vetoed anything "too heavy metal", which meant no Immigrant Song and no ALS.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    The weirdest piece of news this 50th anniversary (?) year. A painting of Percy got nicked! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-46322935
  12. I'm still betting on a previously unknown Montreux recording. No particular reason, except Page's comment about the recording showing "a really different view of the band".

    Peter Grant's Horselunges Manor, Sussex.

    I think it was Joan Hudson who used to read Country Life. That's how they became aware that Headley Grange was being offered as a recording facility.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    An eagle eyed poster at RO noticed that there appears to be a violin / cello bow on top of the left cabinet.
  15. Even Page himself says it's Plant, doing an impression of Dr John. It still sounds like Bonzo taking the mick to me, but there you go.
