    Robert in conversation with Brian Johnson

    The is an excellent video of Brian Johnson interviewing Robert in Wales
  3. For 1977, the tickets for the Dallas show went on sale only at the Dallas Convention Center Box Office. For the 1977 Ft. Worth show, the tickets went on sale only at the Ft. Worth Convention Center Box office. Both shows went on sale the same morning. I waited in line at the Dallas site starting at 4pm the previous day. It got very cold that night. I used some Jack Daniels to keep warm. There were two long lines formed to the left and right of the entrance to the Dallas ticket box office, which was inside, unlike the Ft. Worth box office, which was outside. But, by 7am, there were no lines, just a mass of people in front of the doors. I was initially about the 30th person in line. And when I got into the box office area, I was about #30. The ticket office broke their own rules, and out of panic sold the first person in line 100 tickets. Being # 30 in line, the best seats I got were 10 rows back.

    Does Jimmy Still Play ?

    Jimmy is 75 now. Is he going to get back into playing? Here's a guy, a Buddy "Guy", that's 82 performing last year at Austin City Limits, with another show planned for March 28th of this year. https://www.pbs.org/video/buddy-guy-august-greene-gsyu24/

    My Critique of the bonus photos in the 2-CD package. And please, if you don't care one way or the other about these photos, just pass this post by.... The Booklet: Page 3 has the classic picture of the band before the LA premiere of TSRTS. For the most part, I am disappointed with the photos chosen, considering the amount of photos taken in 1977. The RP on p.4 has his arm rising, hiding his face. Bonzo on p.5 with a baseball cap on. Really?? The best and classic pictures of Bonzo from the '77 tour were with the bowler hat on. Jimmy, on p.5 - what the hell is this revisionist photo?? The hat has been airbrushed. Here's the original as posted on Jimmy's site: But even with the original photo, the classic photos of Jimmy from the '77 tour are with the white dragon suit. P. 6-7 - Seem blurry and color altered. Like this is what I was wanting. P. 10-11-12-13 - Just more of the sometimes out of focus and color treatments I don't like. How about one of Jimmy playing the bow in the green laser pyramid... The CD sleeve - Why is the live picture so grainy? Does Bob Gruen take anything but grainy pictures?? The Pennie Smith one from the rehearsals is rare, but it also appears grainy and out of focus.

    Paris Jackson gets the LZ IV tattoos

  8. I use great LZ songs that *were not* on the Mothership, or Early Days / Later Days to judge if someone that claims to be a heavy LZ fan, is or isn't.

    Robert was onstage the entire time I believe, but honestly, I was too transfixed on Mr. Page, during that part of the song to have noticed Robert's horizontal depature... They all get bathroom breaks during Bonzo's solo, excepting Bonzo, of course!!

    Things You've Heard From The Audience?

    "Louder....Louder....Louder!!!" As they began their acoustic set in Dallas, opening night of the '77 Tour with "The Battle of Evermore." I know, because it was me from 10 rows back. Robert acquiesced, and gave the index finger up motion, and the amplification for Jimmy's mandolin was raised.
