  1. What I believe is that although there are many gossip and falsehoods about it, there are absolutely valid theories too, worthy of being taken seriously. So, I think the healthiest thing to do is... to doubt everything and not take anything for granted, whether it is something socially accepted or considered crazy. I mean, who has the absolute truth about things in life? My answer is: nobody. No one has or had in the history of mankind - at least in the official versions - the absolute truth in any particular field, be it in politics, religion, philosophy, finances, economics, science, art, tec
  2. Yes Steve, I remember those interviews very well. I used to like Chris, he had managed to get some very interesting comments from the usually elusive Jimmy about his many interests other than music (Gig Magazine 1977 and NME 1979). And I remembered him for his interesting NME article about the Page-Anger combat back in 1976 (“Anger Rising”, I think that was called). Part of his stuff had helped me, many years ago, to know things about Jimmy when I was searching very passionately in my pre-internet days. So, when I became aware of his "definitive bio" I thought it would be interesting, despite
  3. Well, I'll try to do my best English, and my point of view is like this: Evidently, this book reveals more about the author than his subject. Salewicz and his partners in business makes the reader believe they produced “The Definitive Biography” about Jimmy Page, but they fails miserably. I think this is often the case when these so called professional and experienced journos attempts to decipher those elusive and hermetic keys that leads to revelations exposing the enigma that lay behind and upfront Page's figure - and by extention his rock band. The mediocrity of Salewicz work doesn’t d
  4. Well said, Mr. I wasn´t there in the seventies (I was born in 1978 in another country), but knowing about those times and being a fan, I really think it was exactly as you said.
  5. Without a doubt, one of the best Page interviews ever. I read a reprint while back in the past. Finally, I can see how it looked like in his original print. Awesome cover picture! Thanks for sharing it with us.
  6. Some years ago, I found on the internet a worn-out version on video of a prime cut, with Page soundtrack. As I say, it wasn't the final edition of the filme, but some rough cut with different takes and images, maybe a copy of the version that Anger used in september 1976, in Los Angeles, supposedly the audio source that was used on the bootleg version of Page soundtrack (those blue-vynils that appeared in the eighties). The quality isn't good anyway, but I was fascinated as it was something extremely rare to find. I don't know if the video is still available somewhere, I think it was a torrent
  7. It's a strange thing from the usual viewpoint of "standard thought", but I think there lies something very deep.
  8. "Crowley didn´t have a high opinion of women, and I don't think he was wrong". I believe Page refers here to the sexual aspect of women in general society, at least Western society (as Crowley believed), wich was severely repressed at the time. "Women fails in expressing her sexuality at full range, without restriction and shame", that is what I think he was saying. Don't forget Crowley came form a Victorian age in England, where sexual repression and Christian dogma and morals was the order of the day, and through his religion Thelema (based strongly in the sacralization of sexuality and
  9. Well, I read somewhere that kind of story when the "black book" Hammer of The Gods came out in 1985. Jimmy got a copy and, after reading a few bits, he throwed it in disgust through the window of his house by the Thames, so the book went sailing down the river waters. It seems to be a Jimmy's habit when he lays his hands on some Zeppelin-related artifact that he doesn't like. Maybe digging the deeps of river Thames we can find some damned Zeppelin treasures!, probably an entire collection of Zeppelin books
  10. Personally, I think 'Pictures at Eleven' is a great album; in fact, one of the very best of Plant solo journey. His voice here sounds a lot like the latter years of Zeppelin, probably '79 and '80. In fact, the album lean a bit on the Zeppelin sound while at the same time shows the new facet of Plant as a solo artist. I think that was a good move or strategy for him when it came to start a solo career. Obviously, the more-related Zeppelin tracks on the album are 'Burning Down One Side' and 'Slow Dancer'. I believe that first song sounds reminiscent to 'In The Evening', that opening track on Zep
  11. Great aen27!!!.... Always liked me the story of Page-Burroughs interview, and the note itself, because they dug in unconventional subjects with interesting opinions and such. Does anyone on the forum scanned and posted the interview as appeared on the magazine? I always wondered how it looked like.
  12. I think the main reason Page and the other two band members put down those books is because they want Zeppelin being remembered for their great music. And they see all those stories and legends as a distraction from the music they made with such spirit and inspiration, you know, working really hard. If I were in their shoes, as a musician I would be really, really upset with fans and media constantly raving about incredibly epic antics in hotel rooms and stuff instead of the music . So, in my opinion, they wanted the people recognize the quality of the music by itself, without any halo, mysti
  13. When I think about that june 21st 1977 L.A. Forum show, I always remember that amazing begining with "The Song Remains The Same", when Bonham basically goes like a fuckin' rocket with the snare and kick drum. And that was just the start of the concert! What a night, my goodness! Luckily, this version of "Song Remains" is included in the official DVD as an extra - the version of the audio bootleg "Listen To This Eddie" synched up with amateur footage in 8mm. I wasn't at the show itself, obviously, but I wish I had the opportunity! I know about the show via Eddie bootleg. "Sick Again" was a kick
