  1. Ok. Who is the most insincere, then, would you tell me? Jimmy Page, when desperately seeking to keep up appearances facing Robert's wild defection, or Robert Plant when he talks about Led Zeppelin becoming a cabaret thing? Was ever the O2 show looking like a cabaret thing, for God's sake! Open your eyes, Nicholas.
  2. Ah ah ah! Unrealistic. Robert Plant doesn't drive Japanese cars, and openworks of his shirt were on the front, not on the back.
  3. Good point. Not completely accurate though: Universal Japan has released a John Paul Jones live set, Guitar Wars, in 2004. Even if it's a short set and the bill is a collective one, the show is amazing. https://www.discogs.com/fr/Steve-Hackett-John-Paul-Jones-Paul-Gilbert-Nuno-Bettencourt-With-Roger-King-Pat-Mastelotto-Mike-Szut/release/7081323 There's also the Page & Plant DVD from Paris Amnesty show in 1998 which has been officially released. Short set, but superb playing.
  4. I see things this way: Jimmy doesn't know if it will happen or not. Because he is dependent on Robert's will of recording new music with him to see it happen. So he's only able to hope for Robert's future change of view. That's why he's ever playing for time.
  5. Well, we have some clues. There's the song "Save Me" which is featured on the second Black Country Communion album. If I remember it well, Jason has said this composition has been originally written with Jones and Page during the aborted post-O2 sessions. Hearing the song's strong leaning towards Led Zeppelin's style, it's very plausible. There's also the Jimmy Page acoustic sequence at the end of It Might Get Loud. Or more accurately, the sequence belongs to the film's bonus scenes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQCv6jmv-EU The right time to expose new music is when Robert agrees on singing on it, I guess.
  6. I've always thought it was pretty unfair to blame Jimmy for his musical inactivity, because he's NOT responsible for that fact in the first place. Jimmy originally wanted to carry on with Robert after the 02 show, as were Jason and John Paul. It was pretty clear there would have been more LZ shows, but ALSO NEW music along the way, if they didn't broke up just after the one-shot London 2007 gig. You can't always blame Jimmy if he wants the best for his music vocally. And the best is Robert Plant. As simple as that. As long as Robert will not agree to write new musical compositions with Jimmy, or as long as Robert will prefer to postpone his future collaboration for some reason, Jimmy Page will set aside his new music (which does already exists) for the right time to be exposed. Jimmy is so cautious and wise to not compromise these tenuous chances of future P&P(+) collaboration, he will NEVER drop the bucket on Robert for his forced inactivity. I suspect Robert perfectly knows every bit and angle of this arcane human alchemy. And he plays with it, for years and years, now.
  7. Interesting topic. Does someone know here if the illustration has been specially designed and drawn for the inner sleeve or if it's a rehash of a drawing preexisting to the record?
  8. 92% here. I missed 1 question (the last one).
  9. Hmm, do you remember the shooting scene featuring Cole and Grant from the beginning of the movie, The Song Remains The Same? Do you recall what happens to the dive guys playing some sort of strange, twisted Monopoly, complete with skull, watchtowers and swastika envelopes?
  10. Thank you Zephead for the dedication you put in gathering all different sources! 1977 belongs to Zep live history. You can say whatever you want about it, there's still irresistible musical moments all through the tour. Great!
  11. Not so sure about that. Jimmy has recently said there will be all kind of LZ official releases over a period of ten years time. And I tend to think it's true. Why ? Because like all of us he's not eternal, and I guess he very probably prefers to be able to oversee and control these releases while he's still alive and has the power to do so. Sense of duty in view of Led Zeppelin's recorded body of work.

  13. Yep. This fact is also reported in the pages of Barney Hoskyns book. This is Keith Richards who is responsible for having turned Jimmy into an heroin addict. Pure felony. Richards the bastard.
  14. Or perhaps it would be better if Jimmy Page said plainly his truth, namely he doesn't want another singer on his new or past material. That's the main reason why ten years ago they didn't carry on after the 02 show, after all. They were right. But by saying so Jimmy would transfer considerable pressure upon Robert's shoulders (it's already there). So it's obvious in my mind Jimmy doesn't want to alienate his relationship to Robert. Preferring keeping it to himself. At his own risk of looking like someone who is not reliable. Which is simply not the case. There's a sacrificial aspect to that in my eyes. And the proof of an enlightened wisdom.
