    Eddie Van Halen slamming Page

    Except it omits the fact the title comes from what the original taper (Mike Millard) had written on one of his cassettes.

    Eddie Van Halen slamming Page

    I know for a fact EVH attended Led Zeppelin's LA Forum gig in 1972. Plausible. As I recall, this reference is stated on some releases, I just don't remember if it's stated on the mid-1980s releases under this title. Even so, it's unclear if this reference is consistent with Millard's original intent or not. Yes, and Alex Van Halen approached Bonzo's table at The Rainbow around this time, but Bonzo wasn't interested and dismissed him.

    Jimmy Page and Joe Elliott to appear at Classic Rock Awards

    Thanks, Cecil. No band/gig listings inside. The content is almost strictly focused on the artists who were participating in the Classic Rock Awards event in Tokyo on 11/11/16. There is only one advertisement and it's for Classic Rock. I do believe there were some highlight clips shown on Japanese television. So based on your recollection it seems this was a free take one publication available at the venue on the night.

    The Best blues song ever made by Zeppelin.

    The song was produced by John Walters at the BBC studios in Aeolian Hall on June 24, 1969. Page overdubbed extra guitar tracks onto the track, and it was broadcast four days later on John Peel's Top Gear show under the title "Travelling Riverside Blues '69", and repeated on January 11, 1970. It is quite different from the original, and it is more a tribute to Robert Johnson than a straight cover. Lyrically, Plant quotes many Robert Johnson songs, such as "She studies evil all the time", from "Kind Hearted Woman Blues", and "Why don't you come on in my kitchen", from "Come On In My Kitchen".

    I remember when cable tv began the primary purpose of paying for it was to watch programs without any advertisements or commercials. That didn't last long.

    Jimmy Page and Joe Elliott to appear at Classic Rock Awards

    End of the road that night for me as well. I lost all hope he will ever perform in public again, nor do anything whatsoever as a solo artist.

    Jimmy Page and Joe Elliott to appear at Classic Rock Awards

    Nearly two years later and the hard feelings linger. Even so, I was downtown earlier this week and acquired a couple sets of this paper called The Rock Club. I'm not sure exactly what these were as I don't remember seeing them at the time. The Sankei Shimbun is a daily Japanese newspaper, but this seems to be something they published just for the Classic Rock Awards in Tokyo, and was probably presented to concert attendees as they arrived. If anyone remembers anything about these papers feel free to post comments. The Rock Club newspaper with three different full page supplements.

    Cleveland was/is an important market for rock music. They simply did their best to fulfill their obligations.
  19. Welcome to my thread, won't you come inside. Miracles may happen, every now & again. This thread is going to be about UNSOLVED LED ZEPPELIN MYSTERIES. I am the thread starter and these are my guidelines: 1. Stay on topic. If your post doesn't pertain to an Unsolved Led Zeppelin Mystery you will be placed on ignore. 2. Anyone can post what THEY believe to be an Unsolved Led Zeppelin Mystery, or respond to one already posted. If you make a claim that solves a mystery be prepared to SUBSTANTIATE IT (news article, photo, credentials, etc). 3. NO BLACK MAGIC / BACKWARDS MASKING posts. I WILL ignore you. Enjoy the thread! Here's hoping we can all solve a mystery or two together.

    Correct about moving the showtime up to allow JPJ time to catch a flight to London that evening. Joe Baldwin had been gravely ill for some time. In fact, several of the dates originally scheduled for early August 1970 had been postponed or canceled to allow JPJ to remain at his father's side.

    Random Thoughts v.3

    I was really disappointed in the blanket, but now I'm warming up to it (pun intended). Initially, I had thought the Swan Song logo should show Icarus falling back towards earth, not bursting through the Union Jack. I've always associated the logo with falling back to earth, given the many tragedies occurring within about five years of Led Zeppelin first using it. However, as I thought about this I came to realize it's also appropriate to highlight the ascent.
  23. It would be helpful, though JTM sounds convinced there's nothing new here.

    In my opinion, many fans have/had unrealistic expectations for what their 50th anniversary would generate. They are going to get remasters, photo books, blankets and t-shirts and with a little patience, some previously unreleased live Led Zeppelin to enjoy. As for this forum, there are so many specialized Led Zeppelin discussion groups on Facebook now it's sort of killed off most if not all of the online discussion forums.
