  1. Does anybody have a music notation/tab book published by Warners/Superhype? Surely that would be the definitive answer. FWIW, It's "big-legged woman" in my book, always has been always will be.
  2. Depends what you mean by "right". See the following essential website for all you need to know about the editing on all versions of TSRTS; http://www.thegardentapes.co.uk/index.html
  3. Warm places preferably for me, I live in Sunny Scotland after all. No particular ambitions to see anywhere special (other than the HR Giger museum in Switzerland) we just like going somewhere and seeing new things. We're just back from a 10 day, 4 city tour of Italy. Visited Venice, Rome, Florence and Milan. 2 days in Venice which, TBH was a bit meh though cool to see. I couldn't decide if it was elegantly decaying or just falling to bits in some places. 2 and a half days in Rome which was stunning, ancient historical (the Colosseum is truly a sight to see with the naked eye) and hot and sweaty (83% humidity, 30 degree heat, not good for us Scots). Florence was a day and a half but we kinda wasted the half day when we arrived cos we went the wrong way out of the train station! Our hotel here was a bit outside the city in a small town with a large industrial/shopping mall area but with a good train link so we weren't just in cities all the time which was nice. The mountain range we could see from that hotel had a cute wee castle on it! Milan was a day and a half in another gorgeous city but full of the kind of shops mere mortals like me can't afford. The first I laid eyes on was a branch of Tiffany's, one of two in the same arcade of shops. Milan Cathedral though is a sight to behold and it's main Train Station is the most beautiful train station I have ever been in, ever. Needless to say (if you're a fan of Italian food) the food was great and I like Italian beers so that was a bonus too. Bizarrely one of the most popular lagers all over Italy is Glasgow's own Tennent's Super lager, saw it being drunk by cool student types in Rome. Here in Glasgow we know that as "Rocket Fuel" because it's mainly drunk by what we call "Jakies". It's a strange old world. We travelled by train between the cities on the FrecciaRossa high speed trains, there were screens giving info about the journey and I was generally seeing around 250 km/h speeds, at one point the Mrs spotted 290+ km/h the fastest we've ever went on land. Very enjoyable trip if a bit brief due to the time constraints . Milan was pushed on us due to availability of flights back to Scotland but I'm glad it was, nice place. I'd like to visit Rome, Milan and maybe Florence again for a longer look around.
  4. There was another article in the Daily Mail a couple of weeks ago which in the print version ran to 3 pages of mostly photos. Online version; http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5849983/Jimmy-Page-reveals-treasures-works-art-says-Robbie-Williams-putting-risk.html
  5. I & II in that order. For years my knowledge/only copy of I (on tape of course) didn't include the second section of HMMT, stopping dead at 05:30. It was copied from a cassette original but by a long lost friend, so I never knew if the original stopped or just the copy he did. Some years later I played a mate's vinyl copy in his house and an already fantastic and firm favourite album surprised me by becoming even better.
  6. Leaded glass in a door at the House For An Art Lover in Bellahouston Park, Glasow. the house was built in the 1990s but was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh (and his wife Mary M MacDonald) in 1901. CRM would have been 150 on 06/06/18.
  7. Vicious Rumor Club's rap cover of Whole lotta Love uses samples from WLL. From 1985 and still a favourite round here.
  8. Saw him a few times in the mid 80s when he was doing the comedy circuit as Bing Hitler including the two Sundays when the "Live At The Tron" LP was recorded. Very funny guy.
  9. Yer Welcome! Indeed! But the bootleggers don't pay any of the artists behind the musical quotes Jimmy cut out anymore than they pay Zeppelin, the Garden Tapes convinced me to hang on to the bootleg versions as well as JP's original official version. Must get round to buying the "Complete" one sooner or later.
  10. http://www.thegardentapes.co.uk/index.html All you need to know....
  11. I always dug the Amber Vistalite and was grinning like an idiot when I saw the BBC footage from the O2 and saw Bonham junior's homage kit. The apparently unloved stainless steel kit's in the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona (or at least it was in 2004 when I was last in that beautiful city).
  12. I'd say yes, but please no Rick Rubin. Why would they need him with Jimmy and John Paul, both able producers and who both know how to get the right sound?
  13. Dumb-ass Rock 'N' Roll played by men in tights and make up. And I Love It! (Loud. of course). You don't need to switch your brain on much, it's well played, at times dodgily produced, rock music. A great front man with a terrible line in stage patter, a nasty brute of a bass player (who plays some great melodic basslines and walking stuff too) who spits fire and drools blood. What's not to love about that? The revolving guitarist and drummer positions have seen some great players, Ace was great for Kiss' sound and Peter's drumming fit in and gave the music a bit of a uniqueness. Special mention of course must go to Eric Carr who was, for me, the best drummer Kiss had. Kiss' ever present fifth member, the stage show, has always been a blast and in recent years has incorporated screen technology to great effect. Yes they're old men and not so agile anymore, yes Paul's voice is going, yes they have band members wearing Ace and Peter's make-up, but who cares? It's Kiss, it's just a pity there's no UK tour announced along with their recent EU date schedule. I'm hoping for a booking for Glasgow's newest arena which opens later this year. But then as my sig sez I hope that from Zeppelin eternally.
  14. Either of the two nights they played the Glasgow Apollo in December 1972.
  15. They're also on the cover of Record Collector, well Jimmy is, with a feature on the making of Houses Of The Holy. Wait a minute...... http://recordcollectormag.com/issue-detail/413 Check his guitar.

    Annoying Things

    Scottish peepul speek english tae ya basturdz! I know where ye're coming frae though, ay? I hate hearing thick Scottish accents oan tha telly, 'specially Glaswegians, we aw sound thick!
  17. She was right, but this woman's only "duty to look after" was to look after her rich friends while single-handedly killing off a large portion of Britain's manufacturing industries and turning previously nationalised services to private hands who then began the process of hiking prices up for the things we all need and now look at the State of the Nation. Utility companies making multi-million profits while pensioners have to choose between eating and heating. She was the first in a short line of PMs who've toadied to business interests and war-mongers (the glorious Falklands War!) while ignoring the needs of the people they're supposed to be running the country for. There is talk of her getting a State funeral, more expense for a woman hated by many in this country. When she goes they should cremate her and dump her ashes somewhere then use the money saved on her funeral for a giant piss-up for everybody.
  18. Remembering that they're old blokes now I'd like them to do an hour or so of live classics and, if they felt so inclined, a new song or cover then an intermission. For the second set they'd play one of the studio albums in full (having omitted the songs in set one from the LP to be played that night) then encores of two or three more roof raisers. This would keep to the 2 hour-ish mark of the O2 show. The studio LP each night would ideally rotate, splitting PG between two shows to keep with my timing. You might not get to hear your particular favourite LZ LP (I wouldn't want them to do ITTOD when they played Glasgow for example) but my idea is we'd get live versions of all the studio LPs LZI to ITTOD via the tapers who would be in attendance. I've always fancied live versions of the studio albums.
  19. My DVD copy stuttered too but I just presumed it was the layer break and made the same face I make when it does it during a movie, Grrrr!
  20. You made me look, but it's a reversed 22 on my copy. It's the print-through of the matrix number of the CD! Turn it over.
  21. Yes, that was the one I was referring to.
  22. If you read the blurb on the BBC link you'd see this was originally broadcast early 2008. It's a good show though!
  23. It's on the official Youtube channel, and personally I love the artwork. Shepard Fairey again, I just hope this is all original and not another mash up of previous designs like Mothership is.
  24. I did see a t-shirt of the cover art but it was on sale as a single item itself. The Rehearsal disc is worth every fecking penny of the 2CD/2DVD pack. The main event is, of course, brilliant but the single camera kinda fills in the details of the back screen and the lights (and lasers, WLL was just kicking off as I read Dave's line about the lasers and there they were!). Kashmir is awesome, I want a copy of the Objects animation! I was looking forward to this set then heard about the single camera on the rehearsal footage and it dented my enthusiasm a wee bit but so glad i got it. And it's just started up again. Musically they're, what's that phrase? "Tight But Slack" or something like that? And being able to hear the playing without all those lucky beggars (and scamming freeloaders and drunk eejits) who were in the O2 that night screaming over the top is a treat too. Being able to hear clearly the first notes of Ramble On just for one example. Seriously, get this option for the whole experience, a great well made movie of a momentous evening and an alternative view of the performance to fill in the 'blanks' the editing created. Cheers to Jimmy et al. too. A very nice all round package.
