  1. Was just watching a show about how the Moon was formed on VICE channel, and there was a scene where they showed a fictitious city and on a billboard was Zeppelins Mothership artwork !! very random.......
  2. Jimmys 80 guitar tech Tim Marten shared the info in an 80s magazine article, Guitar World perhaps ?
  3. To me this argument is stupid, mainly because Zep could play circles around the Stones musically, I mean the Stones aren’t even in the conversation talent wise compared to Zep. it would take 5 Charlie Watts to make 1 Bonzo, maybe Jonesy is more talented than the Stones all put together Mick Taylor was a good guitar player, nice pure player and cleaner than Pagey, but that’s where he ends just a player Jagger vs Plant is a toss up Mick is a hell of a performer can’t deny that !
  4. A year or so ago Plant played some shows in Iceland, and his band did a short version of Immigrant Song, tuned WAYYYY down, and Robert still sounded really weak trying to hit those notes. It was then I really understood his decision not to tour w Zep again, his voice has dropped so low he can’t even come close anymore to Zep catalog.
  5. Black Dog was played in Oakland & MSG in 77, too
  6. This is chump change for Jimmy, maybe he’ll realize 100k from it, that’ll cover his gardening fees for Tower House this year.
  7. I saw Jimmy in Syracuse 88 and he was just on fire and played really really well. We were all surprised, truthfully our expectations were seriously low after the Atlantic 40th debacle.
  8. I think Jimmy was decent at Live Aid, much better than Atlantic he played way better
  9. I think, shockingly, you are too kind on this review. Diabolically bad.
  10. Well Peter Jackson’s new cut of Let it Be just got pushed back a whole year due to Covid19, we may be waiting a loooooong time
  11. Sadly I do not know of a place to download. sad story, my drive that contained files got corrupted and I lost my own Masters
  12. I’ve always thought Jimmy played decently, just hampered by terrible sound. Phil Collins was a joke, though. If Jimmy had played this well at Atlantic 40th, things could’ve been very different vis a vis Zeppelin reunions
  13. Telecasters are everywhere on every single Zep album, more than people realize. telecasters are super versatile, much more so than Les Pauls, especially for rhythm tracks. Jimmy will never clarify what’s what, but I think everyone would be surprised at the amount of Telecaster usage, even on Presence.
