  1. Not saying Robert wasn't deeply affected by Bonzo's death, but it sent Jimmy into a near fatal spiral of drugs/depression that took him four years to get out of.
  2. My mystery question is: Who is telling the truth about the Knebworth attendance figures? Mick Wall states attendance for the 2nd show was only like 40,000. 1st show maybe 100,000. Zep camp states 1st show what, 250,000? We all know Grant was a greedy coke head in those days, but promoters are usually greedy coke heads too! What's the truth?
  3. Sadly, on this date back in 1979, Jimmy gave an extremely poor performance on a night when he should've been at his best. I'll always wonder exactly WTF was wrong with him that night. His playing in Copenhagen and the 1st night at Knebworth was very good, but for this show, yuk. I can't listen to this show.
  4. I think Robert led them on. Jimmy wouldn't have put in all that effort with out some kind of signal from Robert post-02 concert. However, the more important question is, who has the demos of those sessions and when will they get leaked?
  5. I'm sorry, but this just makes all the angrier with Robert. All along he said he would be open to something if new material was done instead of just rehashing the old hits, so they (J, J & J) worked on shit for a year! And then Robert blows them off. Nice way to treat your friends.
  6. I met Jimmy at his home in Windsor in 1988. He was very nice & polite. And he has big hands!
  7. You'd think Jimmy would at least have had some initial workouts with somebody, I hope. If he doesn't have a lineup, he better get one quick!
  8. That's my video! ha ha glad someone is enjoying it! BC
