    Livin' long enough to see Pontiac Silverdome 1977 released on DVD. 1970 Bath, 1971 Japan soundboards, 1968 Europe and UK tours are also ones I hope to live long enough to see.

  1. Willie Mays was the oldest living hall of famer. R. I. P. to the 'Say Hey!' Kid, Willie Mays. Repose en paix, Anouk Aimée. Only one week after Françoise Hardy's passing, my French-loving heart is in mourning. https://variety.com/2024/film/news/anouk-aimee-dead-french-star-a-man-and-a-woman-1236040890/
  2. To list only ten is nigh impossible but I'll try anyway. Like Christopher Lees above, I'm going by studio version preference. In chronological order: 1. Dazed and Confused - THE Song that hooked me on the band in the first place. 2. Ramble On - Perfect representation of their light/heavy dynamic. 3. That's the Way - Sublimely gorgeous song. 4. Four Sticks - There is an otherworldly eeriness to this song that separated Led Zeppelin from the heavy blues rock horde. 5. When the Levee Breaks - Monumental groove. The soundtrack to the apocalypse. 6. The Rain Song - Challenge issued by George Harrison. Challenge accepted and handled with aplomb by the band. An evergreen classic. 7. The Rover - It's a crime this song was never given its proper due on any of the post-"Physical Graffiti" tours. 8. Kashmir - A cinematic masterpiece. The "Lawrence of Arabia" of rock. 9. Ten Years Gone - Achingly beautiful and heavy at the same time. Jimmy Page marshals his guitar army. 10. Achilles Last Stand - So many contenders for this last spot but rather than another track from "IV" or "Physical Graffiti" or "III", I had to include something from "Presence", my favourite 'in the wee hours' Led Zeppelin album.
  3. Damn. Bill Walton. Jerry West. Two of my favourite players gone. RIP Jerry West. Mr. Clutch. Zeke from Cabin Creek. The Logo.
  4. R.I.P. Françoise Hardy. One of the most stunning women I ever met. Jimmy Page played on one of her swinging Yé-Yé classics. https://variety.com/2024/music/obituaries-people-news/francoise-hardy-dead-french-singer-actor-1236034297/
  5. The older I get the more I agree with the old adage "children should be seen and not heard".
  6. I watched this last night on ESPN. Nice to see that Canadians can be just as stupid and violent as Americans.
  7. On the right is Allan Arkush, the director of "Get Crazy" and "Rock 'n' Roll High School" and worked at the Fillmore East from 1968-1971.
