  1. I read somewhere that Jimmy's black beauty was returned to him. Has this been confirmed? Great to see these old photos.
  2. His passing is a surprise. He certainly looked fit and working his magic. He was producing a new HBO show I'm taken with, The Brink, probably one of many projects. George Clooney said in a statement "......... And to those who didn’t know him we send our deepest sympathy. You would have loved him.” I'm sure that about sums it up. Really sad, but a life well lived. RIP
  3. Have I died and gone to heaven? Thanks for posting Funky and Patrycja thanks for the pics (looks like Jack's tour photographers work). Jack and Robert are a natural paring of course. Don't they both live in Nashville, well Robert part-time. Freaking cool that was!
  4. I don't know enough about restrictions for Grade I or II listed buildings but if it is typical of most heritage type properties, wouldn't the extensive work planned for William's home be under restrictions and therefore scrutiny? Jimmy has spent a good deal of money for expert advice and reports. You must have deep pockets for this fight!
  5. How can you make such severe changes to a leased property without the owners application? I'm aware of leasehold improvements but this seems extreme. The additional plans look more like a hotel than a private residence. Why doesn't Williams look to a neighbourhood that can accommodate such square footage and save himself a headache. Surely Chelsea council will veto such drastic changes to a Grade II building? Michael Winner seems like he was a really kind person. Words os wisdom there, spend more time with your parents. Thank goodness mine liked LZ...... and taught us to play nicely w
  6. It has been years since I last seen Tower House and I don't recall the garage, but could it once have been a carriage house or stable? It doesn't show on the plans so probably an addition. Smart car? Jimmy doesn't drive but yes an Aston or at least a Jag, I mean, to fit it. Nothing wrong with a Bentley! lol But if Jimmy is "green", it wouldn't hurt my feelings either.
  7. Grade 1 and II listed properties are high maintenance and expensive to maintain. I don't know if I'd be willing to take on a pair. Will there be friendly chats over the garden fence? Not that I can add anything to this particular Jimmy story, but I recently learned that I had a relative who lived at Tower House in the 1940's. I have since wondered if Jimmy would let me in and have a look around.
  8. Besides being a rich folk problem, the houses in that area are of a type. If you buy in that neighbourhood, you should have the decency to keep those magnificent old mansions as the architect intended - everyone else has. Hope JP wins at council.
  9. I think it has been debated here. It is an August entry but the photo wasn't taken in August. I personally think it's around 1977.
  10. Book stamping? Like an autograph?? I'm really enjoying Jimmy's book.
  11. John Paul Jones is there in Rockestra as well.
  12. The Bonham version of Beware My Love is being released on the remastered Wings over America album. I really like the Bonham version as the drums are more driving. I ran across another McCartney/Bonham thing (along with an amazing array of musicians) on You Tube - Rockestra
  13. A Jack White/Robert Plant collaboration could be really good. Jack has worked with Jimmy so why not Robert. I really like Jack's last two solo albums but Robert's Lullaby....not so much.
  14. Jimmy is notorious for delays. I think he is a perfectionist and oversees every detail of a project.
  15. I'm sorry but I do not see anything indicating that Jimmy is uncomfortable or making deceptive or unsure statements. In fact is looks rather comfortable. He has only done hundreds of these interviews.I will take him at his word and expect him to be playing next year. I can't wait! Looking forward to the new book too. I was crushed that the last one sold out before I even heard he did one. Yes, the lucky 2500. Don't blame you for bragging just a wee bit of that acquisition! I agree with a poster here - greatest smile ever. Looking good Jimmy, yes you are.
  16. I view the Jimmy merch as a democratic thing. If you don't like what is on offer, do not buy it. Nothing speaks louder than dismal sales.
  17. One mans trash is another mans treasure! Who are we to judge?
  18. You got that right! Tie-dyed T's, oh yes please. Can't believe he picked any of that extremely tacky merch on offer!
  19. The Sotheby's catalogue also featured several fine Joini Mitchell watercolours and drawings. Wasn't Jimmy sweet on Joni back in the day?
  20. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-05-15/led-zeppelins-stairway-to-heaven-vs-dot-spirits-taurus-a-reckoning I don't know if this has been posted but it is an amusing little game. Thanks juxtiphi for your music post. Of course it is not the same as you have pointed out.
  21. I just noticed on the 2014 re-issue of Dazed and Confused the song is credited By Page - Inspired by Jake Holmes. Is this the same as a writing credit?
