  1. Today marks 50 years since Led Zeppelin and Cartoone released their very first albums on Atlantic Records. What a wonderful day it was, as Atlantic legends Ahmet Ertegun and Jerry Wexler said, " In 1969 Led Zeppelin and Scottish band Cartoone were the two bands that Atlantic have the most faith in to do well " How right they were as 50 years ago Zeppelin's star shone bright and soared into stratosphere to become one of the greatest rock bands EVER !, and went on to sell millions of records. Cartoone was another story ?, which I'm sure many of the millions of Led Zeppelin fans know about. Jimmy Page was guest artist on Cartoone's debut album, and became the 5th member of the band for the duration of making the album. But their star didn't shine like Zeppelin's, so they weren't able to fulfil the prophecy of the two Atlantic legends way back then, and faded into obscurity sad to say. At least they lived the dream of playing with Jimmy Page, and sharing the stage with Led Zeppelin on tour of USA, not many bands can say that. So may I raise a glass to both bands and say " Well Done! for 50 years since your amazing debut albums " Happy New Year to ALL Zeppelin fans all over the world. Charlie ( Drummer Cartoone )
  2. Thank you to ALL the Zeppelin fans who have already bought my book on Amazon. The proceeds go to two worthy charities and I'm sure they will be grateful to everyone who bought my book Story Of A 60s Drummer May the groove always be with you. Charlie ( Drummer Cartoone )
  3. Reaching out to ALL Jimmy Page/Led Zeppelin fans out there. I'm appealing to you to please buy my book " Story Of A 60s Drummer " and make it a Best Seller. All the proceeds are shared between the two Head & Neck Cancer Groups that I support, so it's for a worthy cause. For every book sold I only get a very small amount in royalties, that's why it's important that I sell loads of books, so I can give my two Charities a nice big cheque for Xmas. The book is a great read, featuring all the Zeppelin guys, plus it features my late great mate Dennis Sheehan, who was Robert Plant's assistant for many years, and went on to be U2 Tour Manager for the last 25 years. So there is plenty of stuff in there to get you interested and hopefully everyone will get something from my story, however big or small. So come on all you Zeppelin fans out there, please start a campaign to help me with my quest to raise funds for my two Head & Neck cancer charities using my book as a vehicle. John Bonham will always be my all time favourite drummer, and Led Zeppelin my favourite band. You can buy it at all the usual websites :- Amazon/Waterstones/BarnesandNoble/Foyles etc etc. May the Groove always be with you. All the best Charlie ( Drummer Cartoone) and author of Story Of A 60s Drummer

  5. Yes Jimmy Page was the guitarist on Ice Cream Dreams, and most of the other tracks too. Listen to his lovely Gibson acoustic guitar on Withering Wood. If Jimmy did use the chords from Ice Cream Dreams for "Stairway" then best of luck to him, we love Jimmy, and are honoured that he may have been influenced by our music in any way, and used some of our stuff for future Led Zeppelin recordings, we think that's wonderful, and we are so proud to have been associated with Jimmy and all the other Zeppelin guys. Buy Charlie's book Story Of A 60s Drummer on amazon , he talks about Jimmy and Led Zeppelin, and other great bands. A brilliant book in our opinion, and it's for a very worthy cause. Cartoone
  6. Our drummer Charlie Coffils has published his new book Story Of A 60s Drummer which features Jimmy Page & Led Zeppelin in the book. Jimmy appeared as a Guest Guitarist on Cartoone's debut album and Cartoone also Toured the USA in 1969 with Led Zeppelin and other great bands. Charlie's book is a journey through what it's like to be in a band in the 60s, and also his many tragedies and achievements in his life. It's a great read, please go to the link and have a read what Charlie himself has written. https://whizbuzzbooks.com/story-of-a-60s-drummer-charlie-coffils/ ( click to go there ) Charlie gave Jimmy Page a personal signed copy of his book last month, so hopefully Jimmy is enjoying reading about himself and the Zeppelin guys on tour in 1969. Wishing Led Zeppelin the very best of luck on their's and Cartoone's 50th anniversary of being signed to Atlantic Records. Keep on Rockin' Cartoone
  7. Happy New Year to Led Zeppelin fans everywhere. We did an interview with the legendary New York DJ Carol Miller for her show Get The Led Out. We spoke about many things including recording with Jimmy Page,Touring USA with Led Zeppelin in 1969, and also the late Peter Grant. We also mentioned how Cartoone was formed, and how we came to be linked with Jimmy and Led Zeppelin. So it promises to be a really informative interview. Haven't a clue when it will be broadcast in the USA, that's up to Carol Miller and the powers that be in the radio industry. In other words it's out of our hands guys !!!!.

  9. Strider, First of all a BIG thanks for buying the new CD ( awesome) Second of all, wow! fantastic news to know that record stores have our new CD on the shelves after 40 long years. It feels great, and Derek our late great singer would have been so proud and happy to know that. Hope you enjoy the CD Strider, and also the Led Zeppelin stories at the back of the CD case. All the best CARTOONE
  10. Strider, Thank you so much for buying our vinyl album, we really appreciate you spending your hard earned dollars on our music. We believe that the new remastered Cartoone Deluxe CD with (8 new unreleased tracks) is only for sale on www.fridaymusic.com So don't think that Amoeba's will be stocking the CD, so please can we ask you to buy it at Friday Music website. Regarding a tour, we would have loved to reform and do a tour to promote our new CD. But sadly Derek Creigan our lead singer passed away, so it will not be possible. Best wishes Cartoone
  11. Thanks to ALL you Jimmy Page fans who are buying the Cartoone Deluxe Edition CD at Friday Music. www.fridaymusic.com We really appreciate your support and send a big THANK YOU to everybody who is spending their hard earned dollars buying it. We are proud to say that Cartoone and Led Zeppelin will always be linked, as Jimmy Page played on our album, and we toured USA with Led Zeppelin in 1969. We hope you enjoy reading the stories on the CD cover. May the music of Cartoone and Led Zeppelin live on forever. Led Zeppeiln are and always will be the BEST Band on the planet. Love and best wishes to all Led Zepp fans. Cartoone
  12. Swandown, Thank you so much for buying our new CD, we really appreciate the good comments as well. Regarding the two tracks Lazy Man and Paper Spade these tracks were unplayable on the old acetate, so unless we find the original master tape, unfortunately there is no chance of ever hearing those songs again.
  13. Thanks, we did have an amazing time on the Zeppelin USA Tour, and we did share it with everyone on our new Cartoone Deluxe Edition CD. www.fridaymusic.com So please can we ask you to buy the CD and read our stories of the tour.
  14. Thanks Guys for all your comments on our music( good and bad ) We obviously liked Swandown's comment best as he called our album an " Underrated Gem". Don't forget, we are NOT Led Zeppelin, nor are we trying to be. This album was recorded in 1968 and released in 1969. It features Jimmy Page on ALL tracks ( firmly inn session man mode ) we are enormously proud of that fact. The only track you can really hear Jimmy soloing is on Let Me Reassure You where he uses a wah -wah pedal which was "NEW" at the time and he does some lovely licks on the fadeout of the track. This new release of the Cartoone Deluxe CD on Friday Music is a collectors gem, and it is ALL the recorded songs that Cartoone did. So it's worth having as a piece of rock history, as our singer Derek Creigan sadly passed away. So there unfortunately won't ever be a Cartoone reunion tour or recording. This CD is it I'm afraid, our music is a grower and takes time to get the songs into your head, but once they are there you will never forget them. The liner notes and photos of the band are great, and there are stories about the USA tour with Led Zeppelin at the back of the CD case. So why not give the CD a chance, for only $10.98 for 21 tracks it's a bargain. Touring with Led Zeppelin was the most awesome experience of our lives, we got to see them up close and personal, and were witness to the phenomenum that happened around them in 1969 when they broke America. They were a "One-Off" unique in every way, as Jimmy said "They were a band sent from heaven", nobody has come close to them then or ever since. That's why we are all craving for them to reform with Jason Bonham on drums and do a tour. All the best Cartoone
