    Items you can't convince yourself to buy

    I convinced myself to buy this. Some of you may have seen this item on eBay. Not bad for $20. I can't help but think, it was made by some teenager just after the show they went to, in say.... 1973

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    HUGE Dead fan! I've often complained (wished) Page would have taken an approach like the Dead or The Doors or others when it comes to releasing new/unheard material. It's a shame really.

    Which shows do we know were multitracked?

    Apart from the tapes that are either horded or in the attic (which is a real drag) I am grateful for the photo's that get regularly added to the time line. There's a new photo almost every other day! I hold out hope that somebody has a bunch of Super 8MM reels stuffed in granny's attic as well!

    Jimmy Page confirms 2018 release(s)

    I thought it was in reference to the Rain Song?

    Best Intro For Black Dog

    I like BIOH - The one/two punch of Rock and Roll and Celebration Day and then Bring It On Home and then... Hang on, Wait... what's this... No way! It's Black Dog! I could only imagine what it was like seeing it happen live.

    The Song Remains the Same - Upcoming screenings

    I remember shortly after Bonzo died TSRTS came to the local theater. Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg, Illinois. I was in 8th grade and my parents made me take a nap before getting woken up around 11:30pm to go to the show. As we pulled into the parking lot, the cops had a car pulled over and I saw a cop reach into the car and pull out a bong and put it on the roof of the car. Then we get inside the movie & people were smoking weed, drinking beers - lots of shouts of "Zeppelin" and somebody even lit off a bottle rocket. It was super rowdy but calmed down once the show began. A few years ago, I took my own son who would have been around the same age to see the Zeppelin movie that came out around the time of the re-releases. A very different audience - no weed, no rowdiness, no booze, and not nearly loud enough. How times have changed. Yet, The Song Remains The Same.

    Is it true that Keith Moon named Led Zeppelin?

    What fun they must have had. I can only imagine the after show party.....

    Song Remains the Same Re-Issue - No Quarter

    Anyone have any thoughts on why Page added Over the Hills, The Ocean, etc. but NOT Thank You from the last night in NY? Is he saving that for Record Store Day 2019 (sigh....)
  10. I really like the first two Plant solo records and have just started to listen to them regularly again. Given the landscape of music in 1982 (Pictures at Eleven) and 1983 (Principle of Moments) I think they are both pretty solid. Between 1982 and 1983 we had stuff like Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, Go Go's, but we also had REM, The Police, David Bowie and New Order. I'd put the Plant records on par with the releases in the latter (for me anyway)....

    Hadn't seen this one before. What's the origin?

    Having trouble uploading the photo - but Page is wearing the same shirt during this photo session. I can hear Jimmy speaking into the Mic "ok, Bonzo, one more time"....

    Tower House

    Noticed a nice McIntosh Amp on the floor, a speaker and some LP's. The place looked like a medieval museum and wondered if the candelabra was used in TSRTS.... Thanks for the peak inside Jimmy!

    Comments from Non Fans

    Grandmother 1986 while watching The Song Remains The Same on Christmas Day. "George, didn't I take you to see these guys? Me, Wait, Grandma you saw Zeppelin? Yes, it was SO loud and the guitar player was so skinny". My uncle George was 13 in 1973 and she took him to go see Zeppelin at The Chicago Stadium that summer. George saw Zeppelin again in 77 at the Chicago Stadium and was at the show that ended early. Sadly he passed away in 1990. My grandmother however is still alive - she's 94!
  14. It's not OG but I did get the American '72 Tour Shirt off eBay for less than $20 USD. I get lots of compliments/questions when I wear it.

    New "Song Remains The Same" 2CD/4LP/3DVD Deluxe Set

    I often wonder how the film would have turned out if the band hired a team like the Maysles Brothers and shot it just like they did in Gimme Shelter.
