    Robert Plant's Range Rover 1973

    I never thought Tangents in a Framework was a hatchet job, it was one of a only a few books on Zep out there in early 80s it’s just an overview book on his career nothing salacious or anything. Why did it piss off the band ?

    Types Of PA's Used On Early Tours

    WEM systems early on Once they picked up Showco in 1970 they left all sound to them.

    Yep, I’ve been waiting to see your comments on 7/24 total fluke show out of nowhere Jimmy just plays like a man possessed, in reality, Jimmy NEVER plays this well again for rest of his life so glad bootleggers captured one of his all time great performances easily in top 3 fave Zep shows for me

    The Lemon Song (studio)

    Well, it’s in E so that tells me it’s at it’s natural pace, not messed with.

    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    These pics are outstanding great close up detail !
  9. Honestly, the movie is an unwatchable mess. It’s like a student film, so crude. Jimmys soundtrack is marginally interesting. both film and music are evil and disturbing and don’t merit repeat viewings IMHO

    5/26 has long been a 77 fave for me, I think the band has a relaxed approach for entire show, I love this one

    Jimmy Page and Joe Elliott to appear at Classic Rock Awards

    This fiasco is what finally convinced me Page is retired and unable/unwilling to perform

    The legend is that at beginning of Rock n Roll Page tripped and fell onstage that’s why guitar cuts out

    Ten Years Gone Guitar Effects

    Jimmy was also a big fan of the Tremolo effect. Like after "really need 'em bad" he hits that big chord with tons of Tremolo.

    The O2 In Retrospect...

    Zeps music doesn’t work unless you give it total commitment. It ain’t easy, takes a lot to perform their music. as dissapointed as I was personally, if what we would’ve seen is half ass Robert looking distracted on stage, well we’re probably better off

    Fwiw I don’t get all,the hate for 5-26-77 I think it’s an a very cool show kind relaxed with some nice fluid playing by JImmy listen to Stairway solo and talk to me to each his own I guess
