  1. I have never been an accomplished musician, and so, I admit, I do not know what it takes to get there, to stay there, or to climb back up there. If Jimmy can't get back there, then he can't. If he doesn't want to put in what it would take to get back there, then so be it. I am not expecting anything "new" from Jimmy. I believe the "creation" phase of his career is over. I was lucky to be a part of the Led Zeppelin experience in the 70's. That will always be a high point in my life. If there is a blemish on Zeppelin, it is that they were not able to, by circumstances, or, even on purpose, to film more of their concerts, and to film them in the studio. Other supergroups were able to achieve this. Who knows what live recording plans might have been nixed by the abrupt stoppages of the '75, '77 and '80 Tours.
  2. Jimmy's Sunburst Gibson Les Paul is like the Excalibur of the Rock Kingdom to me.
  3. Longhair MIT programmer Don Eyles saves the Apollo 14 Mission
  4. Collins had a better chance of making it back to earth. If things went sideways for the other two trying to land and trying to return to the command module, then Collins would be the only one to be coming back... Space is, and will always be, a Dangerous place.
  5. Here's the website link. There are many listening option feeds in the real time tapes being played: https://apolloinrealtime.org/11/
  6. I was a huge early Beatles fan. But, when they stopped touring, I lost interest very quickly. "My" Band needed to tour.
  7. Is there some rule of thumb that at 75 or older, guitarists can't play? What does "he's 75" really mean. Really? Tell me please...
  8. I don't even know if Pagey could guest with this guy on his tour...
  9. I prefer the behind the scenes stories, so I look forward to the book (or film) of "The Making of Jimmy Page: The Anthology." 😋
  10. I'll wait 10 years and get my copy from a garage sale, thank you!
  11. Deserves it's own thread, I think. https://www.genesis-publications.com/book/9781905662593/jimmy-page-the-anthology Jimmy Page tells the stories of the instruments that have long been mythicized in rock and roll history, such as his 'Dragon' Telecaster and 'Number One' Gibson Les Paul. The Anthology documents Page's remarkable musical journey from listening to blues records with childhood friend Jeff Back, to performing on TV in a Skiffle band; from his colossal body of session work in the Sixties, through to the Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, and on to bands such as The Firm, Coverdale & Page and Page & Plant. The draft pages presented above (subject to change) show how each item is carefully selected from Jimmy Page's collection and is supplemented by anecdotes from the author himself. Hundreds of items from Jimmy Page's private collection have been personally selected for inclusion. From iconic guitars and stage costumes, to rare posters and vinyl pressings; and from correspondence and diary entries to unseen photographs. Every piece has been photographed and brought to life with exclusive new text provided by Jimmy Page, placing it within the story of his phenomenal career. Leather collection not included.
  12. If you mean pick up a guitar, alone, I don;t think so. Maybe if Jimmy's surrounded by 3 or 4 others, so Jimmy can "lay back" and play some chords. But a lead?? I don't see it. So prove me wrong. Let Jimmy perform a magical rendition Bron-Yr-Aur, and then I'll be a Believer.
  13. Misery outside. 92F South winds 23mph Gusting to 32mph Feels Like 98F Dewpoint 70F !!
  14. Watch the intensity build with the pop up storm that came through Dallas Sunday afternoon.
