  1. A new coffee table book Five Glorious Nights, compiled by Dave Lewis, is being published to commemorate the 1975 run of concerts at Earls Court: http://www.fivegloriousnights.co.uk/ Disclaimer: Not associated with the publisher Rufus Stone.
  2. Another favourite band gone. Maybe some of the members can team up with Jimmy for another project. Who knows..
  3. And the original poster jim6225, disappeared from the website the moment he posted the accusation: Posted 18 May 2014 - 08:44 AM Last Active Offline May 18 2014 08:43 AM
  4. Jimi Hendrix album Axis: Bold as Love has been banned in Malaysia for offending Hindus. http://www.themalaymailonline.com/malaysia/article/jimi-hendrixs-1967-album-with-hindu-god-cover-art-not-allowed-says-home-min
  5. Jimmy used the same-type of riff previous to the Spirit tour, I don't see how Spirit can claim he heard it after they started touring in late 1968.
  6. "They recorded their first album, the eponymous 'Cartoone', with Jimmy Page as guest artist on all tracks, using his Telecaster and Gibson custom acoustic. Zeppelin were recording their debut album at the same time." http://www.rockingscots.co.uk/cartoone.htm That makes it October 1968, well before the US tour.
  7. Did Jimmy Page's signature descending guitar figure predate Spirit? We know Jimmy Page recorded with a Scottish band called Cartoone sometime in late 1968. Their album was released in January 1969. My question to the forum is this song: If it can be proven the recording of this song "Ice Cream Dreams" predates Led Zeppelin's appearance with Spirit on 26th December 1968, the claim Jimmy had heard it from Spirit can be thrown out. The first mention of Cartoone's album being released is in Billboard magazine, dated 28th December 1968, volume 80, issue 52, page 4. If anyone has any session recordings by Jimmy Page that predates 1968, that has a similar guitar figure, I'd be interested to hear it.
  8. You and I, and most people know "Stairway to Heaven" and "Taurus" don't sound exactly the same, however the amount of negative media coverage basically implying otherwise is quite saddening. What is even more disappointing is that many of these stories are distorting the previous cases. Factual errors abound, but because it's now out there in maintream media its almost impossible to correct.
  9. Ginger Baker returns.... http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/q-a-ginger-baker-on-why-the-rolling-stones-are-not-good-musicians-20131011?page=2 Interviewer: "The Stones just wrapped up a tour. Have you heard them lately or what do you think of how they're playing nowadays? Baker: (laughs) You're joking right? 
 No. I mean Charlie is a great friend of mine. I think the world of Charlie. When I was living in the States, Charlie came to see me at my house and he said, "I'd give you some tickets but I know you would never go!" I won't go within 10 miles of a Rolling Stones gig. Why is that? They're not good musicians, that's why. The best musician in the Stones is Charlie by a country mile. I agree he is. But the way they play together, people argue, is greater than the parts. People can argue what they like. Do you agree they're great songwriters, though? No, not really. Are you a fan of the Who? No. I knew Pete Townshend's dad better than I knew Pete Townshend. I worked with Pete Townshend's dad in the early Sixties and late Fifties. Keith Moon was a friend of mine but I wouldn't say he was a great drummer. Dylan is still on the road. Is he? Yes. Were you a big Dylan fan? 

 I'm not a big anybody fan. What was the last record that excited you? God knows. I don't know. I don't listen to music. That [bassist] Jack Bruce contacted you about another reunion? Who?
  10. "A fund has been set-up to install a permanent memorial in the town to one of Britain's greatest musicians and arguably Redditch's most famous resident. The John Bonham Memorial Fund will aim to collect as much money as possible to have a statue or sculpture erected in honour of the Led Zeppelin drummer who was born, educated and grew up in Redditch. It is hoped space will be found within the town centre for the statue, with the bandstand area previously mooted." http://www.redditchstandard.co.uk/2013/08/02/news-Bonham-statue-bid-kicks-off-with-bang-79816.html
  11. That can be explained by the fact they were travelling in two cars. Charlotte was in the car with Maureen's sister, following behind Robert's & Maureen's car. It was Charlotte who got help and contacted Richard Cole back at Swan Song in London to notify head office of the accident.
  12. Dude, do you realise that book has copied all its information from wikipedia, including the same errors? What's more it has no entry for Led Zeppelin IV, incredible as it may seem.
  13. Just read the reviews for the new film Argo starring Ben Affleck et. al. 'When the Levee Breaks' is played. http://www.starpulse.com/news/Evan_Crean/2012/10/16/affleck_transcends_boston_tales_with_a
  14. I take that position as well Scott. More needs to be made of the Isla Cameron - Bert Jansch connection. Far too long just hearing Jansch and his fans harping on about it...
