  1. Uncut Zeppelin

    Thanks!!! This is really helpful!! She is a big fan but has only started collecting for the past year and a half lately so I shouldn't run a huge risk of repeat info. She is more into pre-73 stuff though, and from the contents it looks like most of the classic interveiws (which is mostly what she'd be interested in) are later and I'm a bit worried that she might already have the first two in other uncut magazines but I can't be sure. Still looks like a good buy though.
  2. Uncut Zeppelin

    Sorry for reviving an old thread here but I thought it would be better than starting a new one. Does anyone have the Deluxe Ultimate Music Guide Zeppelin issue that I think came out around 2013/2014? (Here's a link: http://www.uncut.co.uk/publication/uncut/deluxe-ultimate-music-guide-led-zeppelin ) How does it compare to the Jimmy Page one? I want to buy my friend one of them but they arn't cheap and I can't tell which is better. I like the uncut magazines because they have period articles from melody maker and NME. From what I can tell fromthe description the LZ deluxe issue has some older articles but I am curious about how many. The Jimmy Page issue discussed in this thread was mostly "new" interviews from 2009, yes? Thanks in advance!
  3. I was reading the biography Robert Plant: A Life by Paul Rees. I don't consider it to be a very trustworthy source, as I've already found several inaccuracies and Rees doesn't cite his sources in a way that be easily be checked. However, some of the stories in here are just too entertaining and funny that I'd just like them to be true. Like this one: On page 57 in Chapter 4, Rubber Man, Rees mentions (with no quotes or indication of any source) that Robert went to see The Who at the Kidderminster Town Hall in May (of 1966, I think, possibly 1967. Rees only says the month but was talking about 1966 previously) and at the gig Pete Townshend sang lead vocals because apparently Roger Daltey had walked out and after the show Robert waited for Pete and offered to sing for The Who. Has anyone ever heard this before or have any sources on it? Like I said before, I don't trust this book, most of the stories about his life prior to Zeppelin seem to be based on rumors and word of mouth from acquaintances mixed in with a few actual coversations with Robert, so I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't founded in reality but I was curious in case it was. Thanks! (also I appalogize if this is in the wrong place. I just joined and this is my first post after stalking the forum a bit without being signed up. I did look to see if there was already a thread I could add to and I found the book one, but there wasn't a lot of discussion in that thread and I didn't want to change the format. So please let me know if I should post my questions somewhere else.)
