  1. Thanks for fixing the link gf. Originally sent this from my temperamental iPad ! Agree with you both about Jimmy doing this largely to flag up the neighbour problem. And it is a house that he feels a huge level of commitment to, so I understand his position. I do like the point about Jimmy only playing acoustic guitar in there because of the possible effect of vibrations !
  2. Hello all. Really nice article today in the Guardian about Tower House, Jimmy Page's home in London. https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/jul/08/stairway-to-heaven-jimmy-page-castle-is-his-home-led-zeppelin?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other
  3. Ten years !!!!! As Sandy Denny said "Who knows where the time goes". I was there at the O2 on the night. Simply one of the greatest moments of my life. Such an honour and such gratitude. Thank you. RB
  4. I don't know if this has been posted here previously, but here's a link to the website of Pereds, a very exclusive estate agency in England. There are lots of details of previous property sales on the site, a number of which involve customers that you might have possibly heard of. Look on them and weep. I did !! http://www.pereds.com/
  5. Somewhere in businessville, a man with a cigar is sitting behind a large desk reading this and saying "You know.......it might just work !"
  6. Here's the Daily Mail article. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1090439/Has-riddle-Rolling-Stone-Brian-Joness-death-solved-last.html
  7. Legend has it that at some point in 1969 when Zeppelin were being supported on tour in America by Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson's famous long grey overcoat that he wore on stage was 'borrowed' from his dressing room as a prank by one of the Zeppelin folks. Certainly the coat vanished and was never seen again. Some cite this as the starting point of the animosity between Anderson and Robert Plant in later years. Anderson himself says that this event might have happened in Detroit and, hearing him in recent interviews, still sounds a little cross about it. Anyone know anymore ? Anyone want to
  8. Sent chills through me too. It was a real goosebump moment. The first and last time they would ever play it. Just something else to make a historic night historic.
  9. Yep, I was there. Block 412, row B, seat 722. Awesome evening, all over so fast. Still play the boots regularly and still talk about it to anyone who'll listen. The sense that still remains was just how moving it all was. Lots of tears and a real sense of gratitude to this band who've been the soundtrack to my life. I've never been surrounded by so many grown men crying ! And as time passes and it appears that this really was the very last show, the whole event seems with hindsight to have been even more important. It really was a privilege to be there.
  10. What ? You can't get it in the US ? That's terrible. Probably something to do with BBC content only being available to BBC/UK licence payers. I'll have a go with it and try and get some caps up too....
  11. Sorry. Crap computer going mad in the excitement. Anyway, check it out !
  12. The full programme has just been released on the BBC iPlayer. Link below: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00j3...London_Calling/ Enjoy.
