  1. Hi Ashtray, Interesting find. The article you linked to is from September 2018. So this is the second example found, or do you know if it's the same example, as the one that is mentioned in the write up? I'm guessing this is a second example. Robert www.anextranickel.com

    I'm guessing this is the jacket that was on Ebay in October 2018. I saved the images and the auction description. In the lower left it states "Direct from New Orleans..." This is most likely a tribute band jacket and is not official Led Zeppelin merchandise. In the 80's and early 90's there were only a handful of tribute bands and one of them was out of New Orleans. My friends longtime tribute band Physical Graffiti - The Led Zeppelin Show had satin jackets made in circa 1991 that were red and white. Robert www.anextranickel.com
  3. I have links to the video walkthrough of the MGD Page / Plant Memorabilia Truck on my website www.anextranickel.com in the articles & features section. You can go to part one here: Memorabilia Walkthrough Part One and part two can be found here: Memorabilia Walkthrough Part Two. Six minutes into part two is the MGD Page / Plant commercial. I'm pretty sure that the commercial ran on MTV / VH1 during local commercial breaks. I can check my old VHS tapes to confirm as I taped commercials as well. Robert www.anextranickel.com
  4. It's all a matter of opinion, and the author is entitled to theirs. A seasoned Led Zeppelin fan could write a similar type of piece praising Led Zeppelin while writing demeaning comments about other artists. Years ago an interesting article was written for the Deep Purple fanzine Darker Than Blue that showed similarities between Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. The article even has noted Led Zeppelin author Dave Lewis' opinion at the end of it which I thought was a great thing to do considering it's a Deep Purple fanzine and they asked Dave for input. Whenever, I visit other sites devoted to another artist they generally seem jaded and all other music is terrible unless it's created by their favorite artist. Anyway all copyright credit goes to the authors of the Darker Than Blue fanzine. Robert www.anextranickel.com
  5. Thanks Sam, if it's best feel free to prune my two latest posts above to avoid confusion.
  6. Any idea who it is? Interesting that the roll is split.
  7. Hi Porgie66, From a different roll, here's more of Bonham. Note the last few images are of Bonham with the double bass drum set up. Robert www.anextranickel.com
  8. I own an example of the item you are referring to. Robert www.anextranickel.com
  9. Chuck was certainly a pioneer in the early days of what would become the genre known as rock and roll. However, I don't believe Chuck (or very few artists at all) will ever conquer these numbers in the next couple of decades. https://www.elvis.com.au/presley/one-billion-record-sales.shtml Robert www.anextranickel.com
  10. Everytime I hear Johnny B. Goode I think of Louis Jordan. While Chuck was certainly an influence on early Rock and Roll, many others were in the mix such as Little Richard. There will be only be one Elvis. 8>) Robert www.anextranickel.com
  11. Collectors usually start a focus on a particular segment of items or a particular timeframe of the band. Collect what makes you happy and at a means that's within your budget. Personally, I'm all over the board from basic items to much rarer items. Steve is correct. There's a lot of items locked up in personal collections that won't be available again for a long time. Best of luck in collecting the belt buckles. Pacifica made some really cool buckles. Robert www.anextranickel.com
  12. Hi Tony, Here you go. $10.00 Buy it now. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Led-Zeppelin-T-Shirt-1977-Tour-Youth-Size-Black/302643649289?hash=item4676f79b09:g:N-UAAOSwWWNZ0XTt Robert www.anextranickel.com
  13. For a walk down memory lane I have reloaded my comprehensive guide to Rick Barrett's Merit Adventures catalogs. I still have to work on some minor details but you can view the listing here: http://anextranickel.com/the-comprehensive-guide-to-merit-adventures-catalogs/ Robert www.anextranickel.com
  14. I agree with Steve anywhere between $150 to $225 and his estimate is a good idea. Now for the cool part of the post. I also have an unused 07/23/77 ticket. It's the next sequential number. The tickets were most likely purchased together. I tried to take an image utilizing a mirror. Hopefully you can make out the 139719. I also have an unused 07/24/77 as well.

  15. Obviously you didn't go back and reread the past thread. I hardly was putting emphasis on opening acts. I was stating facts not fiction and you bailed on the thread when I presented the 90,000 plus ticket sale number. Why continue to come on Led Zeppelin's official website with a personal axe to grind? If you are a Zeppelin fan then you know that years before The Stones small club tour Zeppelin performed a return to the clubs tour right? Zeppelin could have played a larger venue circuit and sell out the tour but stepped back. I also hardly made an emphasis on ticket prices. If you want to discuss having other acts on the bill and still performing we can add the Bath Blues Festival (1970) in there if you want to talk attendance numbers. Robert anextranickel.com
