  1. As we come up to nearly 11 years since the Concert for Ahmet Ertegun, co-founder of Atlantic Records, at the O2 Venue in London, I am reminded of how self-centered Robert was to not want to do another handful of shows for that Tribute and re-union of Led Zep. Over the years since that famous night in December 2007, I have come to the conclusion that a "one off" concert for Ahmet and Zeppelin was not only a selfish decision on Robert's behalf, but a real travesty to us as fans, the music world, and personally to the other members of Zeppelin and their families. For all the rehearsals, time away from families and projects, and all the logistical aspects for that Night, they all now seem like a looming shadow over Robert's insistence not to continue that energy and good will. A shadow that grows longer and darker as the years pass and a Zeppelin reunion, for whatever reason, becomes nearly impossible. That Night at the O2 was so incredibly great and magical, can one imagine if they continued for even a handful of shows in different parts of the world where Ahmet and Zeppelin had such over-whelming influence and support. Let's take North America for instance. A show would have certainly been well received in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tampa, and say Dallas. All places where Zeppelin was noted for Tour stops back in their hey-day. All famous for their sold out venues and amazing, if not crazed, fans. Not only would that have been the right thing to do, I believe that with time and more shows - the Band would have gotten even better and tighter as a unit! Imagine... But no. Robert would have none of it. And we as fans, and the music world, are lesser for his decision. Ahmet made Atlantic Records famous in the US first. That's where his real market was. That's where he passed away and a tribute by Zeppelin would have been well suited in those and other cities. Jimmy, John Paul, and Jason were all on board, fired up, and ready to continue their success from that Night at the O2. All the pieces were in place. Everything. The Band was so rehearsed and even Jason was more than ready to fill his dad's big boots. But Robert held his ground and denied himself, and the members, and the fans that couldn't attend the O2 concert, a once in a lifetime chance to see Zeppelin reach new heights, a new audience, and make certain that Ahmet was given his due in the United States. His home away from home. Looking back, for what did Robert prove. 11 years almost gone - what was the point in not giving 6 months more in 2007 - 2008 to a Band's legacy. The Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary has come and gone now - with nothing new or exciting to talk about.... Robert, I love you beyond words. Thank you for all of your artistry and true inspiration. Your integrity will never be second guessed. However, your insistence on not continuing that magical Zeppelin resurgence at the O2, will also be a chapter in any historical accounting of the mighty Led Zeppelin. Maybe you don't care, but we do; and I'm certain the other Band members do as well now that Time has marched onward from that Night.

  3. Here are some never-before-seen fan photos from Led Zeppelin's legendary Carnegie Hall (October 17, 1969) appearance. A group of 15 year-old fans captured their experience at the 8:30pm (early show) from the 10th row. They describe a lack of security, except for Carnegie Hall ushers and were free to venture up to the front of the stage for a few pics as well. Amazingly, these photos also reveal Jimmy Page's first photographed live use of his Black Beauty Les Paul during Led Zeppelin and confirms it was brought to North America for this fall 1969 tour. http://www.ledzeppelin.com/show/october-17-1969

    Jimmy Page interviews,2018.

    Post any interviews with Jimmy Page on the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin here,thanks.
  5. I don't post here very often but do read the contributions of other. Today I noticed a strange coincidence when I was looking at my Facebook feed and I don't remember the topic being mentioned or discussed here. The last Jimmy Page-era Yardbirds concert was July, 7th 1968 and the last Led Zeppelin concert with John Bonham was exactly 12 years later on July, 7th 1980. After some additional research it turns out that the last Jimmy Page and Robert Plant concert was July 7th, 2001. What is going on with July 7th and Jimmy Page?

    Jimmy Page Cigarettes

    This is such a silly fangirl question, but does anyone know what brand of cigarettes Jimmy used to smoke? Did he have a preference?
  7. hi guys, my vinyl copy of led zeppelin 2(remaster) says "living loving wreck(shes just a woman)" on the label. i know that the first pressings had that aswell, but the mistake was soon fixed. do the remasters have that as a tribute or do have a super rare copy? the title on the gatefold has the correct spelling.

    Page's homes

    Here's a neat article I found that gives some details on the homes Jimmy has owned. http://dereklangille.blogspot.com/2010/07/jimmys-cribs.html What I find more interesting is Jimmy's obsession with waterfront property. The first four homes he purchased all had water of some type around them. Maybe that's what sparked his creativity? Page said he wrote "Friends" while sitting on the balcony of his Thames boathouse. I wonder what he wrote at Boleskine?
  9. I noticed you avoided the 160% figure....because he wasn't responsible for that, right ?  And Trump hasn't pulled away from the table yet.

    https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/31/trump-cites-401k-gains-in-speech-yet-most-workers-dont-have-one.html

    Trump's estate was 250-300 million, but that doesn't include 600M in real estate holdings that were sold and split.

    You embarrassed yourself, but I'll only tell you that in private according to Sam's wishes.  Have a nice day !

      He wasn't responsible for the last 8 years, I don't understand why he would be or why you would suggest he is? Or bring that up? Our growth post recession was significantly less than post recession growth ought to have been by a long shot. Gdp growth was an embarrassment the last 8 years, when it usually skyrockets after a recession. Please explain to me how Trump's real estate was not included in Trump's estate. That would be news to me. Please cite a source. Also, it remains completely irrelevant to the fact that the inheritance took place in 1999, long after Trump made his mark. 

      Also, 401ks are only one way in which people participate. Pension funds are the most important way. Middle America retirement relies on the stock market. Even so, 33% of people who can participate do, according to the article you just posted. What exactly are you arguing against? Those people doing better?

  11. Randy Bachman's Facebook Page Douglas Maliszewski asks: "Randy, can you tell us about your experiences with LZ and Jimmy Page?" Hi Douglas, Sure. I first met Jimmy page in 1967 when I was with The Guess Who and he was with The New Yardbirds at The Cleveland Art Institute. Both bands shared a dressing room. He asked if he could play my Rickenbacker and I said yes, if I could play his Telecaster. Then, we had a discussion and he mentioned starting a new band. The next year, I heard about Zeppelin and in 1969, we played The Seattle pop festival in Woodinville, WA. We ended up playing the same venues several times. After our band played, we’d go to the back of the crowd and watch the other acts. At one of the festivals, which were always in fields with generators, the main generator went out. Only one little amp was working. It had Robert Plant’s harmonica mic in it and the rest of the PA system was down. John Bonham kept drumming and Plant sang into this little mic and played harmonica for about 40 minutes until the power came on. I was amazed. They were just great! In summer, 1970 they were scheduled to play the Winnipeg Stadium for the Man-Pop Festival. It rained so the concert was moved to the indoor arena. Their gear had mistakenly gone to Sweden. A makeshift, 1 foot stage was set up and Doc Stein went on CKRC radio and asked every band to lend their gear because Zeppelin said they’d play if they had gear so we did. John Paul Jones had his range pedals he had carried on the plane and they played and sounded fantastic with a bunch of mixed gear. Iron Butterfly also played. Page has got brains and is quite smart. He stopped drinking years ago and he is more articulate than a lot of people but is quite quiet by nature. I was playing w/Fred Turner at Sweden Rock in 2010. Directly after, was The High Voltage Festival in London. Emerson, Lake and Palmer were playing. So was Joe Bonamassa. We heard Jimmy Page was coming to play with someone else on stage. I was put into a trailer that was divided in half by a curtain. There were 2 doors. He had 2 bodyguards and I asked to see him. They said no so I went in my own door, my own side. I had found several of the posters from the 1969 Seattle Pop festival they had played at years before and thought Page might want a copy. I said as much out loud and the curtain opened and he said, “Hi mate, how are you doing?” He was very gracious and said he'd love a copy of the poster. I sent it to Ross, his minder, who was there taking pictures. Later, Fred Turner and I played the Roundhouse for a special for Robert Plant and sent him the same thing. When I played the opening of the Gretsch museum in Georgia with Bo Diddley, I took the pop festival poster again. Bo wanted to show his family he had once played with Zeppelin.
  12. The purpose of this thread is to chronicle the various events that Jimmy heads to, and all of the Jimmy Page sightings and events that perhaps don't warrant their own thread. Feel free to contribute! Any updates on what's been going on, along with photos and videos, are very welcome. Also, let's make sure that we respect Jimmy's privacy, so no discussion of his addresses or family.

  15. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, and wondering if anyone has any information about the shirt Jimmy Page is wearing in these photos? I have an opportunity to buy the same shirt, and the owner is claiming there was only 4 ever made. Any info would be greatly appreciated! -GET THE LED OUT!
  16. Trying to determine what Month / week period when the Dragon was painted. Through mid April of 1967 Jimmy Page's Telecaster had mirror reflective circles on it as evidenced of the shows in Denmark with the last that I've seen by Jorgen Angels photographs on April 15th. Assuming on April 16th in Lolland Denmark the guitar was the same, sometime between April 17th and April 29th the guitars circles were removed and the custom clear perspex scratch plate was added that is newly visible at the April 30th 1967 Chaville France show. 30 April France. Did Page return to UK before May 20th France show. – NO CIRCLES NEW SCRATCH PLATE The next photo I have is from July 22nd 1967 with the Dragon Painted. Being that this is coming up on the 50th anniversary of the first photo I have of the Dragon, I'm dying to find out when it could have been painted. 6 May 1967 » Chippenham, England @ Royal Agricultural College 8 May 1967 » Cannes Film Festival Personal Appearance for Blow Up. 14 May 1967 » Stratford, London, England @ 18 May 1967 » Versailles, France @ 19 May 1967 » Elizabethville, Paris, France @ L'Hermitage 20 May 1967 Sat Jouy en Josas, France HEC Business School Note: HEC Business School end-of-year party; Billed with Joe Dassin, Jimmy James, Jean-Luc Ponty and Dexter Gordon 22 May 1967 » London, England @ BBC Radio 23 May 1967 » Bristol, England @ The Corn Exchange 26 May 1967 » London, England @ Tiles Club 27 May 1967 » Ramsgate, Kent, England @ Supreme Ballroom 29 May 1967 Monday Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England @ Cambridge City Football Club Stadium 1 June 1967 » Canterbury, Kent, England @ University of Kent 2 June 1967 Fri Canterbury, England University of Kent 5 June 1967 Mon Bath, England Pavilion 6 June 1967 » Malvern Wells, Worcs, England @ Winter Gardens 8 June 1967 » Worthing, West Sussex, England @ Worthing Assembly Hall 9 June 1967 » Margate, Kent, England @ Dreamland Ballroom 10 June 1967 » Torquay, Torbay, England @ Town Hall 16 June 1967 » Norwich, Norfolk, England @ Student Union, University of East Anglia 17 June 1967 Sat Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England Royal Air Force (RAF) Waddington - Raven Club 18 June 1967 Sun London, England Saville Theater Note: Charity pop concert presented by Brian Epstein; with Manfred Mann, The New Vaudville Band, The Zombies, The Settlers [ 11 Days Off ] June 22nd Summer Solstice My guess is that the Dragon was painted during this 11 day period considering he was in England and it was the Summer solstice, a perfect time to Consecrate the Telecaster as Page describes... "During my time with The Yardbirds, I had taken the decision to Consecrate my guitar by painting it in psychedelic color opposites and employing diffraction grating beneath the clear Perspex scratch plate."

    1980 Jimmy Page tone

    Does anyone know what happened to Jimmy Page's tone during the 1980 over Europe tour specifically the Frankfurt show and how did his sound become more over driven, scratchy, and fuzzy.
  18. Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds: The Beginning… Historic Demo Recording Produced by Jimmy Page Coming April 30 Legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist and producer’s first official production available now for pre-order via JimmyPage.com Exclusive Stream of “Money” Track Premiere Available now via RollingStone.com Available now for the very first time, Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds: The Beginning…presents a 12-song demo recording produced by legendary guitarist and producer Jimmy Page. Recorded in 1961 at RG Jones Sound Studio in Morden, London, this historic session marks the launch of a highly successful career for Chris Farlowe. It was also the very first official turn in the producer’s chair for Jimmy Page who went on to capture the timeless studio and live performances of Led Zeppelin that today serve as a blueprint for all modern rock recordings that followed in their formidable wake. For both, it all started with “The Beginning…” These revelatory performances, available for pre-order now and scheduled for exclusive worldwide distribution via JimmyPage.com on April 30, brilliantly capture the spirit of adventure and excitement of the London music scene in the early 1960s. In his liner notes accompanying “The Beginning…” Farlowe summarized his first encounter with Page and the session by stating, “We would play anywhere just for the buzz and it was at one of these gigs that we met a very young boy called Jimmy Page, who liked my band and my guitarist Bobby Taylor. Jimmy suggested that he wanted to record a demo album of the band, so he booked the RG Jones studio in Morden, London, and now after 56 years, it is to see the light of day.” And what a musical storm they conjured! As Page points out in his liner notes for the album, you’d never know that Farlowe and his band mates were in a recording studio for the first time. “The band settled into their recording role immediately and an album was recorded that day. The guitar and bass were recorded by direct injection and the band listened to their progress via headphones…They adapted really quickly to this method, the individual performance exhibits the style and class that this band had and Chris Farlowe’s performance is absolutely extraordinary.” The band’s tightness and musical telepathy is apparent from the get-go with two hard driving instrumentals to kick off the recording. The opening track, Entry of the Slaves, features Bobby Taylor on guitar who is described by Page in the liner notes as, “the coolest stylist, both in his image and his playing, that I had seen in a guitarist who was in an unsigned band.” The incendiary Spring is Near follows and showcases the rhythm section’s individual and collective talents with both Johnny Warne on bass and Johnny Wise on drums contributing thrilling solos. On track three, Farlowe steps up to the mic and tears into a powerful version of the Ray Charles classic What’d I Say. Next up are spirited versions of the rock and roll classics Let the Good Times Roll, Sticks and Stones, Kansas City and I’m Moving On. Each track is powered along by Wise and Warne, and feature cracking guitar solos from Taylor. The volume and tempo comes down, but the intensity remains high on the soulful ballad Just a Dream, which features an emotional and heart wrenching vocal turn from Farlowe. On this track, The Thunderbirds provide brilliant dynamics and atmosphere to set the perfect mood behind Farlowe’s vocal. From here, the recording shifts gears again with Money driven along by a rumbling beat on the tom-toms from Wise and more gorgeous guitar work from Taylor. Farlowe’s howling vocal breathes new life and fire into this timeless rock and roll standard. On Matchbox, The Thunderbirds lay down a powerful and respectful homage to the great Carl Perkins classic with a groove that chugs along like a freight train barreling down the track, with every strum, pluck and beat brilliantly captured by Page on tape. Next up, Farlowe and The Thunderbirds make Don Gibson’s Hurtin’ Inside their own with Taylor’s fiery licks and Wise’s snare drum work perfectly complimenting Farlowe’s soulful delivery and his incredible range. A spirited version of Bobby Parker’s Watch Your Step closes out the proceedings with Farlowe deftly pushing the band along, climbing up his range effortlessly into falsetto and ad-libbing brilliantly into the fadeout. Page’s complete satisfaction with what he was able to capture on tape that day is abundantly clear. “I’m really pleased to be able to make this musical document available for the first time to give an idea of the musical cauldron that was going on in London in 1961, a few years before the Chicago Blues renaissance and The Beatles.” These recordings on The Beginning…marked the first collaboration between Page and Farlowe who went on to work together when Page was a session musician and Farlowe was on Immediate Records. Page featured on the hit single Out Of Time. In 1982, Farlowe featured on Page’s Death Wish II soundtrack, and again when Farlowe made a guest appearance on Page’s 1988 solo album Outrider. Chris Farlowe and The Thunderbirds: The Beginning is now available for pre-order at Jimmy Page.com in advance of its April 30 release date. The release is available in two editions: Standard and Deluxe. The 1-LP, 1-CD set is available signed and numbered by Chris Farlowe and Jimmy Page in a limited edition release bringing the signatures of two music legends together for the very first time. Tracklist: 1.) Entry of the Slaves 2.) Spring is Near 3.) What’d I Say 4.) Let the Good Times Roll 5.) Sticks and Stones 6.) Kansas City 7.) I’m Moving On 8.) Just a Dream 9.) Matchbox 10.)

  19. Hello. I'm a music journalist, trying to track down the seamstress who made Jimmy Page's white and black dragon stage outfits, to interview for a story for LA Weekly. I've read here and elsewhere the designer was a then Los Angeles-based seamstress known as Coco. Read on a thread within this forum she was living in the UK in 2012. If anyone has a way to contact her and/or knows here full name please email me at matthewbwake@gmail.com. I would really appreciate the help and time. Below is some of my previous work for LA Weekly. http://www.laweekly.com/music/how-a-custom-guitar-made-in-redondo-beach-saved-appetite-for-destruction-6807261 http://www.laweekly.com/music/inside-the-strange-hidden-world-of-offstage-touring-musicians-6539027 http://www.laweekly.com/music/master-recordings-from-abbey-road-to-born-to-run-could-be-lost-forever-without-archivists-help-7575450
  20. Hi to all you zep fans Been playing about with guitar for 30 years or more, I've now ended up getting serious with my Led Zeppelin playing. I can crank out a few songs but I want to get a deeper insight into Jimmy's playing. I've found a few web articles but many have things like missing diagrams which is driving me nuts, so if anyone knows of good complete web articles or ones that were published in magazines (mag, year and month published so I can try to track them down on ebay) that would be great. I don't mind just hearing your opinions about his techniques, or what you have learned down the years, it's all good! My own idea is that a lot of his style was about a killer and versatile right hand, capable of intricate finger picking through to the just plain 'rude'! There was a lot going on with the acoustic strumming with accenting and missed beats which just pours tension into the music. I've learned by watching a lot of videos he tackled an awful lot of styles with his left thumb hooked well over the top - so the chords in a song like BIGLU rather than being barre chords as might be expected in the traditional sense of the first finger forming the barre, are played with the thumb - a very cool way to introduce the open strings and creating a haunting sound. But over to you lot...
  21. Does anyone know what clothes Jimmy is wearing during the 69 outfit? Particularly his low hanging jacket. Where might I be able to find something similar to this.
  22. Do you guys think the o2 Kashmir was the best ever? Or was it the 1979 Knebworth?
  23. First time/long time. Zep fan since '85 when I saw them on MTV for Live Aid (not their best, I know, but a great "what is all the fuss about?" intro for a 13 year old). My aunt was a huge fan, turned me on to all the albums, took me to see the Outrider tour and Plant's "Now and Zen" tour (with Joan Jett opening!). Later, I saw Page/Plant at the Alamodome in San Antonio, and have seen Plant again since while he was a resident here in Austin. Anyway, getting back into Page era stuff post-Zep, pre-Page/Plant lately. Downloaded The Firm's first album from iTunes (used to have the tape) and pulled out my old Coverdale/Page CD. Some REALLY great tracks on those. I also think Coverdale/Page was his best STUDIO guitar playing since Zeppelin. I gave another listen to "Outrider"....not as good as the other stuff from '84-'94, but a couple nice pieces on there. Really sounds like another Firm album in places, which LED me to wonder the timeline of the compositions post-Zep. The Outrider Wiki states it would have been a double album had it not been for the home break in that transpired. Anybody have any more details on that break in, what kind of stuff (besides demos for Outrider, obviously) was taken, timeline of the compositions for ALL of the '84 - '94 work? I know he tends to write stuff and marinate on it for quite a bit. Looking forward to a new Page solo album in the (hopefully very near) future. Thanks for having me.
