  1. This. You never know what will stick in the mind of a jury, but if they think they are being misled, you better believe it will colour their opinion. I have only read about this case from afar (and not in detail), but what stuck out to me was this part of it. A hint of dishonesty can turn a good case into a bad one very quickly. The apparent inconsistencies I have read about, between interviews and testimony under oath, are troubling to my mind.
  2. Looks like you might have one of the few copies in the public domain at the moment. Given your username, I'd say it couldn't have gone to a better guy!
  3. This is a softer tone and far more palatable. It is totally fair for you not to like the two unreleased tracks as musical compositions. Nobody can argue with you about that. It seems that your complaint is about a lack of content pleasing to you rather than an actual lack of content. While I am not sure what you were looking for on the companion sets given that you yourself acknowledge that anything truly great would have been released at the time, again, I can't argue with that opinion. To me, if you take these releases for what they are, there are some truly special gems on th
  4. - so why are YOU now complaining about the content? Moreover, are you honestly not blown away to hear TWO brand new Zeppelin tracks that nobody even knew existed - even if you don't love the tracks (I happen to like them both)? So don't go on a Zeppelin forum and denounce a release which includes brand new, never before heard tracks and new, never before heard versions (particularly WLL and SIBLY) as being devoid of content!! And then take a run at the next 6 releases which you haven't even heard! How can you expect people not to get on your back for that?? I
  5. You can ignore me all you want, but it won't change the facts. How do you reconcile the above quote with the one below a few months before?? and how do you reconcile the above with the below? So let me get this straight: There is nothing good in the vaults, but what is in the vaults will blow my socks off, and Jimmy has taken painstaking time and effort in making this set spectacular, but the level of ambition he has put in is truly lacking. Come on Steve. I don't spend my days looking to say "not nice things about you". But I do call BS when I see it. And I'm calling B
  6. At least the point you are making has some merit and is truly debatable. Maybe middle ground should have been an option. My issue was really with the complaint above about the CONTENT being worthless. That is absolutely nuts. How can any fan in their right mind complain that they "no longer care" about releases which have included BRAND NEW Zeppelin in 2014?? Moreover, how can anybody write off the next batch of albums without even hearing them? PG through Coda have been written off without even seeing a track list! Its completely laughable! You start to wonder if these people
  7. I can't stand when people bitch and moan for Zep to open the vault and then have the audacity to complain when they do. But its worse than that. I think you complain because you think its cool to do so. I have no doubt that if "La La" or "Keys to the Highway" found their way into the Steve A. Jones Archives a year ago that you would be touting them as the greatest find since the Dead Sea Scrolls. Now, because they are out, and everybody else has them, you "no longer care". Why be such a contrarian? If I PM'd you a year ago and said I had an unreleased Zep track - that nobody even kne
  8. Nice work on the slide over effect to switch between album covers. In addition to the obvious, you always have little touches that make this site an awesome experience for Zep fans. You continually make this one of the best band sites around. Thanks!
  9. Does anybody know where I can find a copy of the actual claim issued by Spirit's attorneys? I would be very interested in reading it.
  10. Nice! Figured this would be coming any day now! Thanks for the new clip Sam!!
  11. April Fools aside, I always thought this was pretty good...
  12. Sad to see Ralph go... Why do you guys a leave Toronto out of the mix as an eventual destination for the Bills? They already play 1 home game a year here, it would not impact any other team's market as its only about 100 miles away from Buffalo, it is North America's 4th largest city with tons of corporate sponsorship available for the league, the NFL has been looking to go international for a while now (Mexico City, London) - and the list goes on... My money is on Toronto...
  13. Roger, Awesome cover on Time magazine! Love the photo! I know it was just a joke but it is really cool! The real congratulations comes for winning the Steve A. Jones Archive Award for person of the year. My understanding is that this is the first time in 30 years it has been awarded to a person other than Steve A. Jones. A real achievement! All the best, Roger and keep up the great work!
