  2. Sort of like Colorado in that respect then... I'd want to live where recreational pot use was completely legal.
  3. If I didn't live in Texas, I'd probably in somewhere in Wa. State.
  4. Train derailment in Scotland 12 August, 2020. Sadly there are three deaths, including the driver and the conductor. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8619291/ScotRail-train-derails-near-Aberdeen-sparking-emergency-response.html
  5. It's after midnight, yet the Heat Index is still 96F...
  6. These ended up being the final 3 dates of the NA Tour.... but had the unfortunate accident in Greece not happened, there were stadium dates in the US planned for later in 1975. I had bought a ticket for the Philadelphia Stadium show. That was going to be my chance to see them outdoors live.
  7. Saturn and Jupiter are both near the almost Full Moon tonight. https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/night/
  8. I would say that The Who and Pink Floyd, performing songs from their prime, after departure of Moon, and Waters, were worth seeing. And in their case, material written post departure, had some things worthy to perform as well.
  9. Don't sing those Zep songs with the high registers, or take them down in octave.
  10. Imo, nothing any of them have done post Zeppelin, eclipses any of the best work of LZ. Some must think that creativity is some constant that runs through an artist's entire life. The magic of LZ was the four together. Well, that's gone now. So some new album waiting to happen, for me, that's the highest pie-in-the-sky thought ever.
  11. Happy to let the man retire in peace. Has he, bty, officially announced his retirement, or should we just project that on him to suit out constructs? He can be who he wants to be, and Jimmy certainly does not have to try and be "Chuck Berry" or "Les Paul."
  12. Enjoyed Mick's recollections of Page & LZ. The song is very much a "Ron Wood" guitar affair. This isn't an EVH guesting with MJ kind of thing.
  13. Jimmy Page says it’s “really unlikely” that Led Zeppelin will tour again in the future https://www.nme.com/news/music/jimmy-page-led-zeppelin-unlikely-to-tour-again-in-the-future-interview-2712838

  15. In the US, on some of the streaming platforms there is a free channel called "Earth Live!" It has visible satellite view loops of entire regions, like the Pacific basin, the Atlantic Basin, the Gulf of Mexico/Texas, etc. sourced from NOAA. https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/index.php You just hover over the map, choose an area, then choose the Band and select loop.
  16. That was nice, but the UCR story you cited was only excerpts from a Music News Now article. https://www.music-news.com/news/UK/131412/Scarlett-Sabet-felt-a-sense-of-shame-when-her-relationship-with-Jimmy-Page-was-made-public
  17. When I say perform, I mean as a lead guitarist, vs. some kind of rhythm guitar back-up, or, as a part of numerous other guitarists on a stage. This is not so much a "will Led Zeppelin reform" question, as it is will there ever be "An Evening with Jimmy Page," where he plays music from his career, solo, or with others. I have no longing for "a new album" or "New Music," as if that's going to be some kind of revelation. Jimmy has enough of a diverse and varied catalog to please himself and others by performing that, either with, or without vocal accompaniment.
  18. Speaking of personalities, I've often wondered who Late Night Talk show icons went to see in concert in their teens and in their 20's... I think most of them, like Letterman and Leno, and some others, led pathetic social lives, and never saw any cool bands in their teens or 20's. In their stardom, yes these Iconst to have lots of famous bands play on their shows, but in their youth, I think their musical taste for great bands SUCKED. Prove me wrong.
  19. 8am DFW -- 88F Heat Index to start with...
