    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    November 11, 1968: Jimmy Page and Peter Grant travel to New York, armed with the Page-produced master tapes of the group's first album. The meeting includes Atlantic Records' co-founder Ahmet Ertegun and attorney Steve Weiss at Atlantic's office - 1841 Broadway. They then traveled to Miami for a short trip, including a fishing expedition with Atlantic’s executive vice-president Jerry Wexler. A reported $200,000 signing advance is soon announced - a monumental sum at the time. #LZ50

    John Bonham To Be Honored With Hometown Festival

    John Bonham festival raises £21,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust By Ben Russell https://www.eveshamjournal.co.uk/news/regional/17211083.john-bonham-festival-raises-21000-for-teenage-cancer-trust/ A ONE day music event held in Redditch town centre has raised £21,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust. 0 comment The festival, held in September, was organised by the local John Bonham Memorial Friends (JBMF) group, in partnership with Heart of Worcestershire College, to celebrate the legendary Led Zeppelin drummer’s 70th Birthday, life and legacy. A stellar line-up of artists and special guests, all with a connection to John and the Bonham family, took to the stage as part of the full day of live music. This included a performance from John’s sister Debbie, fresh from a US tour with Paul Rodgers. There were video messages in support of the event from Robert Plant, Roger Daltrey, Paul Rodgers, Mick Fleetwood and son of John, Jason Bonham, who was away on tour. Among the mix of well-known stars playing was ELO drummer Bev Bevan, who joined various members of the Bonham family on stage for an emotional rendition of the Beatles classic With a Little Help from My friends. “We are over the moon with the amount of money raised through this year’s event from ticket and merchandise sales and cash donations,” said event manager Ros Sidaway from JBMF. “We are so grateful to all the music artists, technical crews, and event stewards who gave their time and expertise to make the day so successful. And a big thank you to all the event sponsors, advertisers, bar and food traders whose financial contributions helped to cover the costs of staging the event.” She added they are already thinking about next year's event and want to make it even bigger and even better. It is scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday, September 20 and 21. The money raised will help to fund vital services for young people before, during and after cancer treatment across the West Midlands region. John Bonham memorial t-shirts and special souvenir programmes can still be purchased via JohnBonhamMemorial.com or from Vintage Tracks Records in Headless Cross.

    December 10th 1975?

    I've added some new photos & info to the Timeline related to this time in December 1975, including photos of another jam where John Paul Jones played piano at a party at Anne Port Bay Folk Club, the same week as the famous jam at Behan's: The same week as this jam at Behan's (which occurred somewhere between Dec. 10 and Dec. 16), the Anne Port Bay Folk Club welcomed the band at a party, which was being hosted as part of the local Christmas celebrations. Although the band did not perform, John Paul Jones did take a turn on the piano, where he accompanied a number of other performers. http://www.ledzeppelin.com/event/december-16-1975

  8. The songs were released on the fourth LP later the same year as this BBC session, which aired just a few days after being recorded in April '71. Personally, I don't think that acetate is legit.

    Jimmy Page loans tapestries to Tate Britain

    Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page loans tapestries to Tate Britain The founder of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page, says he was "influenced" by the work of influential 19th Century artist, Edward Burne-Jones. The legendary guitarist has loaned huge tapestries of the Holy Grail to Tate Britain for a new exhibition of Burne-Jones' work. Listen to the full Today programme podcast here. https://www.bbc.com/news/av/entertainment-arts-45941944/led-zeppelin-s-jimmy-page-loans-tapestries-to-tate-britain ---------------------- Rock legend Jimmy Page has loaned a pair of large tapestries from his private collection to a major new exhibition at the Tate. The former Led Zeppelin guitarist was at Tate Britain to see the rare works by Edward Burne-Jones installed before they go on show at the biggest retrospective of the Pre-Raphaelite artist in decades. The tapestries, showing scenes from legends of King Arthur and the search for the Holy Grail, are among 150 works in the exhibition. Curator Alison Smith, who showed the musician around the show, said: “When he came in he did ask when was the last time Burne-Jones was seen on this scale in London and I had to remind him the last big show was 1975 at the Hayward — and at the Tate the last time we presented Burne-Jones was 1933, the centenary of his birth, so these opportunities are few and far between.” Ms Smith, who has spent three years working on the show, said Page “was particularly impressed by the way it was lit and the colours.” She added: “When people come to this show they’ll get the Burne-Jones bug.” The tapestries, both made between 1890 and 1894, are called The Attainment: The Vision of the Holy Grail to Sir Galahad, Sir Bors and Sir Perceval, and The Arming and Departure of the Knights of the Round Table on the Quest for the Holy Grail. Page, who helped Led Zeppelin become one of the world’s biggest bands with tracks such as Stairway To Heaven and Whole Lotta Love, is a devoted fan of the Pre-Raphaelite movement which Burne-Jones was associated with. He has previously spoken of how he first felt “connected” to 19th century painters like Dante Gabriel Rossetti when he was still at school before going on to art college and becoming a musician. David Bowie also credited Burne-Jones with influencing his gender-bending style. The Tate show opens this Wednesday and runs until February 24 https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/arts/jimmy-page-burne-jones-tate-a3967786.html

    Generally, pages with full-page photos were labeled either after or before the set, to not obscure the photo with text. i.e. the LA 72 pics are captioned on pg 198: (25 June 1972, The Forum, Los Angeles, 195-199)
