    Page's Supro amp recreated

    This is most likely the Fender Custom Shop Dragon Telecaster.

    Page's Supro amp recreated

    Jimmy's Supro amp had a unique distortion. Good luck with trying to recreate that!

    Why did they not play at woodstock

    Because they were playing in the round at Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, Ct :-)

    Why no Unledded remaster?

    1. It is not part of the Led Zeppelin catalog and 2. It was released twice. Originally in 1994 and again (expanded) in 2004.

    Bonzo and Tim Rose

    You are correct. I mixed up the dates of Page seeing Plant vs Bonham. 7/31/18 is correct. Dates come from Evenings with Led Zeppelin: The Complete Concert Chronicle 1968-1980 by Dave Lewis and Mike Tremaglio

    Bonzo and Tim Rose

    Some rare audio of Tim Rose at the BBC with John (Bonzo) Bonham supporting on drums. Bonzo toured with Rose from June 28 1968 to approx. August 7 1968. During this time Jimmy Page was looking for members to replace former Yardbirds Keith Relf and Jim McCarty who quit the band. It was either on July 12 or 19 where Jimmy would witness Bonzo playing with Tim Rose and was blown away by his performance and knew without a doubt who would play the drums in his band. (Keep in mind Bonzo is still playing a smaller Ludwig Kit; It wouldn’t be till January 1969 where the big 26” bass drum would enter the scene.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JXpmiB5M0Q

    leaked snippet from Boston

    I have my doubts that this is Zeppelin.

    Ten Years Gone Guitar Effects

    If you are referring to some of the overdubs where the notes "wobble", my opinion is it is a MXR Phase 90. (Jimmy also used this pedal on Achilles) The pedal was first manufactured in 1974 so at the time Jimmy was using new equipment! There are thousands of pedals out there. Including systems where they are grouped in a pedal board form. My favorite distortion pedal is the Klon Centaur. (Rare to find but if you get your hands on one, it is well worth it!) Or you can still buy a Sola Sound Tone Bender Professional MKII. (Jimmy used it a lot: Good Times Bad Times rhythm guitar is an example. (front pickup))

    LED ZEPPELIN OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED BOOK - COMING 2018

    Received the book today. There are only 4 photographs in it that I have not seen before. (March 1969 rehearsal photo, Jones and Page tuning up backstage at the Marquee, Bonzo in 1976 and Jimmy Page newly shaven out in the field with with his Les Paul on the Australia/New Zealand tour.) The book focuses more on the O2 show than the complete 1980 tour! Disappointed.

    Lawsuit over Stairway to Heaven

    Would anyone expect anything less from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals? They have a history of ridiculous decisions. (And at least one Judge has "issues" that forced him to retire early) No, nothing to do with Kavanaugh!
