    Backstage arguments?

    “RICHARD COLE I'd flown over to Copenhagen for the Knebworth warm-ups. I had their money for drugs, because Jimmy and Bonzo and I needed the fucking gear. My dealer was in the next room in the hotel, and when I was pulled about it in this big meeting that Robert called, Jimmy said he knew nothing about it. Bonzo said, “Don't be so fucking stupid. If there's no gear, there's no show!” Excerpt From Led Zeppelin Barney Hoskyns https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/led-zeppelin/id635418041?mt=11 This material may be protected by copyright.

    Page now fighting his other neighbour!

    Jimmy lived peacefully in that home for 40+ years, it was only when some classless tools moved in and started tearing up everything for “This Modern Life” did things become an issue. I’m Firm-ly in Jimmy’s camp on this.

    The Led Zeppelin III Story...

    It’s really just a wonderful album, filled to the brim with Light and Shade, very eccentric and I for one am eternally glad Zep just went for it. Show me the Deep Purple, Sabbath, et al album with this much depth. Zep was light years beyond their contemporaries and imho still lapping the field in today’s corporate focus group bullshit music world.

    Did Presence have a bad mix?

    That is a HUGE leap in logic and projecting your own opinions on a situation. I honestly in 40 yrs of fandom haven’t heard this opinion expressed by anyone anywhere. Its a dark, depressing album without the usual big musical hooks Zep was known for. To blame the mix for poor sales, that’s just ludicrous

    Did Presence have a bad mix?

    Your opinions sometimes baffle me, truly. There are Zero “Trainwreck” mixes on Presence. Really? Presence, although not their best album, is routinely held up as one of their best sounding albums with everything presented in stark clarity, as Jimmy, world class Producer, wanted it. Also, the Remaster series only worked with original 2 track mix down tapes. To date, no multitrack remixes have been done. So not sure what you mean by that last bit.

    Clapton and Page

    Jimmy gets a lot of crap for what is essentially an 8 year period blip on a 40 year career of live performance from 77-83 im just glad he survived, many did not.

    Does Jimmy Still Play ?

    Jimmy is worth 300 million or whatever, he just doesn’t need to perform. Its a tough business, I think Jimmy doesn’t wanna start from scratch at this stage in life. He made his musical statement.
