i think the more i play zep , the more they switch off.

:lol::lol::lol: not all the young kids are like that.

I was at a 21st party on the week end and they had this juke box with mostly dance-techno stuff, but....there was LZ too!!

Well, someone (I just wonder who... ;) put on WHOLE LOTTA LOVE and ...a few of the youngsters were like entranced by the hard riffery and heavy structure of the song that they were asking like mad who this band was.

rock will never die....

Yeah Al he 's a Kiwi (New Zealander for those who don't know), great guitarist.

I've seen The La De Das, Band Of Light and The Kevin Borich Express many times in the past.

The Express were on the Rock Arena bill with Santana (whom he jammed with), LRB and Fleetwood Mac in '79.

Recently he was part of a Jimi Hendrix tribute night with a couple of other guitarists,

Mal Eastick was one I can't remember the other.

Anyway I missed it, damn!

Look, I know this is off topic, but i have to have a gripe about something...

The other day I was at the Andy Warhol exhibition at the Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art, and I was looking inside a glass cabinet full of stuff like letters and photos that Andy kept in boxes, and as I'm there looking at the display, these two Kiwi girls stood right next to me, and their accent just pissed me off too much, I couldn't stand it, I had to move.

It was all "oh, Cethy! Look et thus litter from some kud in Brutton, nixt to thet bug stuck thung from Studio Fufty Four..." and then the other one would say "I don't thunk thet's a bug stuck thung, I thunk uts an Errow, you know, like a bow and errow?" followed by "oh, yiah, thet's fentestuc!" "Ut says uts for Velintine's Day..." "oh how romentuc..."

This is what i find amusing about the New Zealand accent:

If we say 'Bag', when they say it, it sounds like "Beg", right?

But if we say 'Beg', when they say it, it sounds like "Big"

But if we say 'Big', they say 'Bug'...

The La De Da's had a hit with "Gonna See My Baby Tonight".

I haven't looked but there might be something on Youtube.

It's all to do with the vowel sounds....I have to say that your transcription of the NZ phonetics was one of the best I have seen....

Interesting. Any chance these guys will play in more venues other than bowling clubs? Have seen The Tinku Band a few times. I quite enjoy their interpretation of Led Zeppelin songs.

Meg

They play in pubs and RSL clubs as well.

Just check the gigs link on their website from time to time.

They are notorious for not updating the site on a regular basis.

The Tinku Band is a Sydney based outfit that play traditional Punjabi folk music mixed with modern electric instruments. Besides doing their own original shows thay have a separate night called Zeppelin at the Taj, which sounds very similar to the Page & Plant concerts (if you remember back to 1996) of fusing exotic Indian sounds with Led Zeppelin songs. Their myspace website is:

http://www.myspace.com/zeppelinatthetaj

Disclaimer: I'm in no way connected with the band but I do enjoy their shows. Their take of "Stairway to Heaven" and "Black Dog" is excellent.

Anyone know of a specialist in Sydney who can authenticate a set of Led Zeppelin signatures on an album cover? I have my doubts on their authenticity but would need someone to verify it. I don't have a picture of the album cover so I can't show it here and it's not listed at the stores website. Since the asking price is over $2000, I'm cautious about parting with my money over it.

You are wise to be cautious here. I have seen some 'autographed' items, on the internet and in Sydney stores, which look like absolute fakes. A good bet would be to have a look around the net for some genuine reproductions of signatures. I'm not sure who you could get in Sydney to authenticate it but I suppose there are specialist arts valuers/authenticators?

Authentic Jimmy Page autograph:

Probably authentic group autograph:

led%20zeppelin%204.jpg

Those should at least help you rule out the obvious fakes. Jimmy's signature is very distinctive and I have seen some awful attempts at forgery. Hope that helps.

wow cactus! are they yours? jimmys is prettty wild, cant read "page" at all.

I wish! I just got them off the net... I've seen Jimmy's signature a couple of different ways - some are so bad it's obvious the forger hasn't even bothered to look for a genuine one to copy.
