  1. You're the crybaby; it was a JOKE; anyone remember laughter?; I feel sorry for malicious people like you
  2. I heard he's rehearsing with Spirit for their reunion tour; he's got some Randy California licks down well.
  3. After 45 years of being a major fan, I finally said "Goodbye" 2 years ago; gave up the old hope and also haven't bought anything Page-related since; but think my decision was a good one. While I am grateful for the majority of the time I was a Page "fan", I wish I stopped paying attention around 1998, since really 'Nothing of note' has happened since. Good luck to everyone who still holds some kind of candle for something new and of SUBSTANCE from JPP!
  4. But really, would anyone REALLY have wanted to see another tired "all-star jam" version of "Train" for the millionth time...with all the comments of Beck blowing a rusty Page off the stage...its over and has been for Jimmy since 1998.
  5. Actually, I'm sure Dave Lewis is a really great guy; (we are about same age); I was just trying to be funny. But after being a "fan" of Jimmy's for 37 years, I've finally lost a lot of interest in the past few years, because he's become so predictable (which he never was for so many great years...) Rather follow Steve Howe now, or Jeff Beck...cheers
  6. The New JP Album: Side One: 1) "She just satisfies" (2016 rap/ guitar version) 2) "I'm Confused" (acoustic/ sitar version) 3) "LA Drone" (full unedited 2 minute version) 4) "Creation" (violin bow guitar solo duo with Eddie Phillips) 5) "Page's Bolero" (Bo Derek -vocals) Side Two: 1) "Theme from Goldfinger" (duo with Vic Flick) 2 ) "Hat's off to (Kenneth) Anger" (missing additional minutes of Lucifer Rising Soundtrack) 3) "Hat's off to (Michael) Winner (Death Wish III outakes) 4) "Hat's off to (William) Burroughs (cut-up of above outtakes) 5) "Domino" (P Diddy version) 6) "Autumn Lake, Part 2" (TSRTS outtakes, with 5 year old Jason Bonham on drums)
  7. The Interview: Question One: JH: "Jimmy , tell me about the BBC Sessions" JP: blah, blah (fidgits) blah, blah , blah (looks evasive), blah, blah ; "same picture, new frame", blah , blah . Question Two: JH: "Will you be releasing/playing new music?" JP: blah, blah (looks evasive) ; "will be a real surprise to people"; blah, blah , ; "by the end of next year" , blah (touches nose). Interview Over. Yawn. TBL reaction: "Jimmy's THE BEST; Fashion note: "jimmy was dressed all in BLACK; how cool is that?"; "Jimmy once again proved why he is THE BEST; wait till everyone hears the new band/album, it will well be worth the wait" blah, blah
  8. 9/29/71 is not only my favorite of this song, but in my "Top Five" Page live solos of all time.
  9. (yawn); please not again. The old "add" another "new" track to a re-issued set, and sell it again trick. Sorry Jimmy, but you're not getting any more of my business until u put out something of value (after 46 years of buying just about everything. Put out some of the Page/Plant video from 1998 and I'll be in; or Earls' Court '75. Or a new album. Otherwise.....
  10. WOW, this Denny Somach writes a book about ZEP and makes $ from it; then turns around and testifies against ZEP! Wow-such class and ethics. I actually paid my own dough and bought his book when it came out a few years ago; I think I'm gonna throw it out, if I don't throw -up 1st. WTF
  11. They should have done everything they could to settle this as quietly as possible out of court. Nope. And Now begins all the far worse collateral damage: Already huge and growing Main street media coverage of Zep's history of "stealing songs" , backed with out of context quotes/ misguided examples/ experts opinions / etc./ etc. All the Zep haters and envy having a field day. And damage to their reputation and legacy (that Page has tried to preserve and protect for the last 35 years)is at issue: it's now spiraling out of control ...
  12. Just one question; How did Jimmy remember his phone # this time?
  13. Just check out the Wakeman solo medley on the 2007 "YES Live in Montreux" DVD. Monster player. And Howe ain't half bad either; the solo of "To Be Over" on acoustic is genius in arrangement and execution. Howe is one of the few guitarists on Page's level, with respect to coming up with great parts and arrangements, and finding unique tones for each song. Both monster 60's and 70's guitarists. The difference was that after about '75, Jimmy got more interested in "recreational" acyivities; while Howe was still practicing and improving his technique-right up to present day. Just look at his discography of solo albums from 1980 and on...
  14. There's some great ones; my favorite will always be 05/24/75 at Earl's Court. I first heard this on a bootleg I bought in 1976, and it was quite a revelation at that time. Why Page didn't officially put it on the LZ "DVD" is beyond me. (it has been available on boot video for many years). I don't think JPJ ever topped this performance, from start to finish, he doesn't miss a note. On the other hand, my buddy always "disses" JPJ because he's a big YES fan, and thinks Wakeman blows him away. There's an old interview with JPJ in Keyboard Magazine (1977), and he states that while he "misses" the classical technique of the schooled keyboard players, he believed he could "make up for it" in other ways.
  15. Page claimed in the interview, as I stated above, that" Spirit was one of the best bands" he ever saw "in the States". This interview was done shortly after TSRTS, because a lot of the questions during the broadcast interview pertained to the movie. However, the point is that a full 7+ years after playing shows with Spirit/ and or seeing Spirit live (i.e. 1969)-he still said this years later. Over the years, Page must have seen dozens of bands in the States from the 60's right thru to the time of this interview. And he still chose to point out Spirit as a favorite. So , yes he clearly remembered Spirit. No one would state a band as one of the best if they didn't remember them, yes? ( I won't even go into the fact that Zep put part of Spirit's "Fresh Garbage" tune into their live cover of "As long as I have you" medley, as documented via bootleg in the famous San Francisco 04/27/69 concert.)
