    ARMS Benefit Concerts in NYC Dec 1983

    To clarify the Michael Palin quote is referring to shows at Royal Albert Hall not MSG

    Page is on the record saying MSG was great, but he wished he wasn’t so rusty.

    Im a big LA77 fan. Big 77 fan in general ! I wish MSG 77 was better represented sonically. I’ve never been able to get deep into those shows for that reason. my random 77 thoughts 6/7 I’m not a fan of because Jimmy is just too rough. Energetic, but rough. 5/22 I think one of best energetic shows of tour. 5/30 Bonzo sounds asleep 5/26 one of my personal faves very relaxed dynamic show with some nice fluid playing from Jimmy 6/23 my fave Zep show ever Jimmys best night of tour imho 5/21 I think is decent esp end of show 4/27 Jimmy is weak 7/17 ok in some parts when Jimmy wakes up later on and Roberts voice warms up. Strong Bonzo show 6/21 legendary show super energy but again, IMHO Jimmy a little too coked up and frantic in parts, still epic possible best Bonzo performance ever 6/25 solid show Jimmy very inspired in parts Robert very strong but Bonzo has downshifted 7/20 😂😂😂😂

    The Trouble with Bonham. 1978-80

    Alcoholism made him a Jekyll/Hyde kinda person, very tragic. Alcohol is a depressant, I’m sure that didn’t help his confidence either.

    I disagree with premise of this thread. Other years I understand but....... It should be titled “Appreciating Page 1973”

    Jimmy doesn't play electric at London home?

    I thought the scenes in Jimmys basement from IMGL were filmed at Tower House?

    Redditch to erect a statue of John Bonham in his honour

    Great to see it’s finally there! Cheers to the folks that made it happen.
  12. Re: Tuning Back in the day, shit just didn’t stay in tune. The technology of the time just wasn’t as good. Add the fact Jimmy used ultra light strings, and the fact that Les Pauls are notorious for not staying in tune, well there’s your recipe. i mean, don’t even get me started on poor Jimmys Strat in 79-80, but again, these were the days before locking nut tuners, etc etc its of its time
  13. When the Levee Breaks. I understand why they abandoned playing it in 75 just didn’t work

    Oh dear Lord not 77 too these gonna be some loooooooooong ass posts BTW I love 77
  18. Honestly? Recording live was expensive back then, and Led Wallet didn’t see the need for outlaying lots of cash to professionally record lots of shows like the Grateful Dead for example. Im sure Jimmy has few regrets in life, but not professionally filming and recording more live shows MIGHT be one of them. But I doubt it.

    Can we stop with Elvis being “King” of Rock and Roll

    I had the pleasure of visiting Graceland. There is an entire wing of Estate that just holds his Gold records, floor to ceiling, wall to wall Gold records from every corner of the world. Yes, Chuck Berry, yes, Little Richard, not denying their contribution. Hell Jerry Lee Lewis could wipe the floor with the lot of them. but Elvis was a global superstar & cultural icon. Plus nobody ever rocked black leather like he did in 68. So much attitude.

    Elvis is the King, not really debatable.

    Nitpicking Page 2/8/75 Philadelphia ( The Spectrum)

    Just skip Landover, Page was wasted. 2/12/75 is one of my fave shows I'm curious to hear how anal you are about it

    What show or live song are you listening to now?

    I wouldn't say its a great show, but I've been listening to Liverpool 1973, and good Lord almighty Bonzo is just thrashing that poor Green Sparkle kit for all it's worth. The rest of the band can barely keep up. Monstrous performance.
