  1. Given virtually every hair metal band stole Zeppelin's stage look, he can talk. Twat.
  2. Having just finished it, they captioned what looked like a late 1970 US show as Royal Albert Hall 1970. I thought the historical reviews were interesting, you can see the NME snark creep in as early as 1976. The Chris Welch interview with Bonzo was good, and what a shame he never gave more interviews in that context, calmed down, away from touring and talking about drums and the band.

    In Concert...

    Getting geeky, those lights (?) on the front of the stage must give a clue. Are they there in other Earls Court pics?

    Interview with Jimmy Page - GQ Magazine

    It's a reprint from Dec 2014. So he might have been narky that there was less focus on those remasters than drugsnsharkz.

    I think JPJ specifically said Communication Breakdown emerged from onstage jamming on "Train..." late on the September tour. It'd be fascinating to hear some more audience reminisces from that tour than just Jorgen Angel (great as his are). I.e. what on earth did die-hard Yardbirds fans think of this new beast? The equivalent now would be, imagine there's no internet and little information, and you go to see your favorite band. Suddenly there's three new people on stage and the sound is heavier & more aggressive & bluesy. Do you embrace it, demand your money back or just indifferent? I was hoping this would be the kind of thing in the photo book out in October, but it looks from previews like it's for casual fans rather than die hards.

    Thing is, this is true of Dazed as a song, but not true of the whole set. As brilliant as that recording from the Fillmore is, the set list 8 months earlier would have been very different. The first shows would not have had Communication Breakdown, probably not Pat's Delight. My guess is September 1968 = Dazed, one of the blues covers, Smokestack Lightning / How many more times, As long as I have you, Flames, old Yardbirds tune, possibly For Your Love. That is substantially different to the Fillmore set, and makes it all the more frustrating there's no known recording of the Scandi shows.
  7. I've long wondered whether Page knew exactly what the lyrics were about, hence why Plant's voice is so far down in the mix.
  8. http://ledzepnews.com/2018/08/12/john-paul-jones-performed-with-his-new-band-snoweye-in-norway/ Norwegian festival musical goings on with Jonesy's new band. In the land of the ice and snow.... Mostly pics but there's some video footage too.

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    I think Brigante was quoting the second extract he posted.

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    This is a good exampe of the basic fact checking that seems not to have been done. Coleby was traced, it's in one of the threads on here. He was found in Switzerland iirc. Anyway, it proves yet again the only Zep biog worth its salt is Barney Hoskyns' "Trampled Underfoot".

    Figured it wasn't Olivia Newton-John, but I got it wrong too.

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    I know this Hermit, I was referring to the summary in the Mail article, which is worded as in, Bonham was involved in the beating up itself, which he wasn't. Specifically it says "At a show in Oakland, California, in July 1977, a stagehand was attacked and beaten by Bonham, Grant, Cole and John Bindon" . Please understand I'm not condoning what happened at Oakland, it was a disgrace; but if something sells itself as "definitive" it needs to get stuff like this right. Basic errors in things like people's ages isn't a good look.

    New Jimmy Page Biography Released

    That bit is my biggest problem with this book. Even if Robert had said it (and we have no idea whether he did or not), quoting something from the heat of the moment, after the most horrible traumatic incident in his and Maureen's life is just not right, imo. It's low.

    The Trouble with Bonham. 1978-80

    I think on the first few US Zep tours, Page was vegetarian. Presumably that was to do with his stomach issues, though he was always watching his weight.
