  1. Past hour
  2. I will be sure to do this. It was sad to learn about the totally tragic history of the Fishendens which I am sure Peter Grant was aware of. What happened is discussed in the book "The Life of Brian: a Boy and Man in the Royal Navy" which I found on google books while doing a bit of search: "There was one body that we had to deal with that has always stuck in my memory; this was a young boy by the Name of Nicholas Fishenden. He was about 9 years old and had red hair, blue eyes and freckles. He was dressed only in his pyjamas that had his name sewn in them. I learned later from a book that I read about the disaster that he had been travelling with his parents. His Father had left his Wife and Nicholas in their cabin while he went away to fight the fire, As the fire spread it cut off both ends of the corridor to the Cabin and they were trapped. A Steward climbed over the side of the Ship and in through the Port Hole and rescued them both that way. When they arrived on deck the Father decided to put them in a Lifeboat and get them off the Ship. The Life Boat tipped up as it was lowered and threw all the occupants into the Sea. The Wife was rescued but Nicholas must have drifted away as we found him floating all on his own and he had drowned. We eventually collected 88 Bodies, 55 Men and 33 Women. This took us all day until 8 P.M. in the evening. There is a rule in the Navy about the issue of extra Rum for arduous duties at the Captain's discretion. He must have classed this job as arduous duties as Rum kept appearing all day long! After we had dealt with the last Body I went to the Regulating Office and commenced listing all the Valuables, which had been taken from the bodies and placed in their respective bags" This account seems slightly incorrect because the wife also died in the disaster.
  3. Today
  4. Bill's wise advice and council saved Robert Plant's solo career. Jimmy Page under self-management is...lacking.
  5. On another note; if this show is believed to be multitracked, doesn't a crappy soundboard eliminate Page's involvement altogether? The likelihood of him releasing or even bothering with a flat soundboard would be very unlikely considering his unwavering attitude towards releasing severely edited products. I think any notion that Page is responsible for this (or any other boot) is ridiculous. Not only had he been vehemently against boots from day one, he could undoubtedly afford to have even a dry soundboard touched up to a professional level (BBC Sessions). There's 0% chance that Page is involved.
  6. Now put that in the perspective of him handing out his master tapes all Willy nilly and care free. Doesn't add up, does it? Maybe it's just me, but I have a really hard time believing that a compulsive control freak like Page would let anything slip through his hands that easily. Again, anyone involved on a professional level with Page who was granted these soundboards (not multitracked so that's 99% not Page anyway) and decided to release them for chump change would be committing career suicide.
  7. Exactly. And think of how many years that Page and the band’s employees, friends, and families have had these various tapes. There was that quote someone posted from Phil Carson, who played during the encores at Osaka 928. His comment was along the lines of listening to the 928 tape the next day or something like that. That was 48 years ago. It’s not as if these things got forgotten and all of a sudden got dug up in the 90s and thrown onto cassettes. These recordings have probably been archived multiple times over the decades. Just look at Page’s recent photobooks. He kept EVERYTHING from his time in the Yardbirds, Zeppelin, etc. Clothes, memorabilia, documents, photos, receipts. Many things that you’d think he wouldn’t have bothered with given his celebrity status. Yet they’re all perfectly preserved, just like that Tower House he owns. Hard to imagine that he would treat the Zeppelin live tapes any different.
  8. Right, and who knows how many people are in the "camp". There are likely many people we know nothing about who have been part of the archive, multiple storage sites ( vaults) , studio engineers , employees etc. If Page is reviewing the live archive, he's not the only person involved. Maybe "camp" isn't the right word, but "team".
  9. I am part of two YouTube channels, one features instrumental Zep covers and the other channel is my own which is dedicated to Bonzo's drumming , called Bonhamology. It's seems like in the past month or two, nearly every cover we do, or video I make playing along, even to a bootleg gets a claim. What's particularly frustrating to me is, for my channel I'm making the videos primarily for educational purposes (considered Fair Use), and I'm often using bootlegs. I'm doing a series of covers of the complete Seattle 75 second night , and nearly every song so far has received a claim, which never happened before with playing along to boots . Rain Song received a claim for song match of the MSG '73 2007 remaster. In My Time Of Dying was claimed as the 2012 remaster. I'm assuming they are laying claim to the melody by recognition , even though it's not the version in the claim details. It's always some South American group like Latin Autor/ Brasilia Kobalt making the claim. Seems either bogus, or very opportunistic. Are these divisions of Warner Music ?? Is that who was claiming your vids? Also, did they actually block your videos , or just make a claim?
  10. Hey Everyone, Just browsing through the forum I noticed a lot of you guys are collectors and have many awesome items of Zeppelin and other bands. Signed items, concert programs etc... If any of you guys have anything to sell or know of anybody please let me know. I am trying to get a really nice collection. Thank you so much.
  11. Heard Bill Curbishley interviewed on Bob Lefsetz’s podcast today.. According to BC, a friend of his recently ran into Page, who asked him to send his love to Curbishley, and added that he had come to realize how much good he did for him when he was his manager. Just thought it as an interesting addition to the thread, Jimmy’s many manager switches are interesting/puzzling to me, and it really seems Curbishley did a great thing for him and the others regarding their publishing rights.
  12. So I guess a crowd-funder to purchase a 10 meters long by 2 meters wide bronze zeppelin, shooting out of the ground is out of the question???
  13. and she did a damn fine job too which proves we need another woman to set things right. I knew we would see eye to eye eventually.
  14. You may well be right. (I think you may be mixing responses to different posts, BTW.) But it seems clear that these Osaka boards are coming from a different source than the "soundboard revolution" source (and even there you have to distinguish between the '75 and '77 shows).

    Pretty much. If they can’t convert here 4th and 1...there’s no hope until next season, at all!
  16. Agreed. It always annoys me.
  17. No offense, but that's preposterous, and I've never used that word before. The pocket change kickback they'd get wouldn't come close to justifying the legal (and professional) ramifications of doing something like that.

    They really look like they have no heart. No tackling, no blocking, dropping passes....

    It's making me sick, too...and I am not even watching the game. On the plus side, losing is the only thing that can get Garrett fired, so there is that.
  20. It's a family decision, not ours by any stretch.
