    The Sleep Topic (or the Topic of Sleep)

    Hadn't seen this thread before, this is a topic I should definitely join in on - because I don't sleep. I'm telling you, I have the worst insomnia of anyone you've ever met. If you could promise me two hours of sleep a night, I would take it in a heartbeat, that would be wonderful to me. I get maybe ten minutes a week. Yes I'm tired all the time. I don't want to get addicted to drugs, especially since most of them have "suicidal thoughts" as a side effect! And yes I've tried everything else. I'm surprised I'm still alive. I know people think I'm exaggerating. I wish I was. That switch in my brain that goes from conscious to unconscious is broken. I can't even remember what it feels like to have sleep tugging at your eyelids. Been like this for twenty years now. So..that's my story. The hard thing is what it does to your mood, I'm try not to react too quickly to things, knowing I may say something I'll regret. It's hard, but I soldier on the best I can, trying this, trying that, all with no luck. I've gotten sort of used to it by now, still hoping for some miracle solution. Any other serious insomniacs out there?

    Best Stairway

    Just wondering what some of your favorite versions of Stairway to Heaven might be. Currently listening to Mobile, Alabama '73, it's a good one...Toronto '71 is another one I like..

    Golf Talk

    I was surprised Dustin Johnson let the lead slip away. I mean, I know the course was brutal but this is a guy who rarely gives up that lead once he's got it, he's very Tiger-like that way. It almost looked like Patrick Reed was gonna win his second major of the year for a minute there. If Dustin had won maybe we'd have gotten another controversial shot of lovely Paulina Gretzky sashaying up the stairs again, right? Haha. Anyway, congrats to Koepka
  6. Yes, agree about the Barney Hoskyns book, that's the best one

    Nice! "carefully annotated"; so they all had a hand in writing captions for the pictures, which is what I was hoping for. Good to see the fellas all together!

    Rare video footage on YouTube 75/77

    I had an 8mm camera growing up, those little reels last about three minutes. If you wanted to film a whole show you'd need a shopping cart full of film!

    Random Thoughts v.3

    File this under "here we go again". I have a friend who's saying he saw Led Zeppelin at the Forum in '71 and CCR OPENED THE SHOW. I tried to tell him he's mistaken, but he just doubled down "Nope, they had an opening act that night" Sigh.

    Redditch to erect a statue of John Bonham in his honour

    Fantastic. This brought a tear to my eye, I gotta say. He so deserves it. YEAH!

    No mention of Keith Moon on the 23rd?

    Jimmy Page would bite the strings

    Hendrix wasn't pretending, he played with his teeth almost every gig. Not really "biting", more like plucking, but yeah...

    Jimmy Page would bite the strings

    Naw, I'm calling BS on this one. Jimmy never bit his strings. He's not doing it in this photo, either. Michael Brennan takes great photos, that much is true. But he's just starting a rumor here, and I'm not 'biting' !
  17. I'm loving the new remaster, to me it's a big difference from the original, it's almost like hearing it for the first time. The vinyl is flawless, the CD's and the hi-res versions also sound great. Very happy with this. I notice I'm not hearing any drama this time around as far as glitches and skips and problems with the vinyl, etc. No crying to Dr. Rhino. I guess they've taken quality control more seriously this time, and that's a good thing. (I'm sure Sam's happy about that too !)

    VInyl Bootleg questions!

    The '73 one is probably either Seattle (7-17), Bonzo's birthday (5-31) or Three Days After (6-3), those were the early ones from '73

    What headphones do you use?

    Sony MDR 7506. They're about 150 bucks. Always liked this series, glad I could still get 'em, I wore out my old pair

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    I don't get people wanting Page to release stuff they already have on bootleg. Whether it's Swan Song, or the longer All of My Love, or whatever, ya GOT IT, in real good quality, NOW. What's the point?

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    Finally, someone spells it right! Thank you tmtomh. Do you all see that? There's NO SUCH THING as "should of" okay? okay. Carry on...
  22. Well, we know that after they saw Vanilla Fudge, Bonzo wanted an identical kit to Carmine's. So maybe these are two different, but very similar, kits, rather than them sharing one...But maybe not! hmm. Great photos BTW
  23. In an article about the venue it said that after a final Grateful Dead show the place was torn down in 1971. So...? Still there? Sort of?
  24. There's the Hendrix one where they do Day Tripper and Noel Redding is singing. The bootleggers were hyping it as "Jimi and John Lennon!"
