  1. You do realise that this Marilyn Cole is NOT the one who married Richard?
  2. I'm the same, I've always found the '72 Japan shows to be uninspiring...to me, the US 72 tour marked the last stage of my favorite Zeppelin period. The US 72 tour was, for me, the last time the whole band was on fire; sure, after that you had some amazing individual performances but I can't think of a single show post US 72 that I'd take over their earlier live shows. Page and Bonham were great in Europe 73 but Plant's voice from late 72 onwards always let them down in my eyes. I'm not one to wax lyrical over Earls Court for example, as I find Robert's vocals to be too hit and miss (and P
  3. Zeppelin used to be far and away my favourite band, but over the last few years, I've had a bit of a seven year itch thing going on with them, and find myself not listening to them as much. Very strange.
  4. This is a great pic, haven't seen many TSRTS dream sequence candid shots..where did you find this? Thanks.

    Hot pics of Jimmy

    I remember seeing a picture of Peter Grant in those shoes too..must have bought a job lot, as I can't imagine Peter fitting into Jimmy's shoes!
  6. Sounds meaningful to me, I can relate to what you're saying.. I was about 13, getting into Zeppelin and guitars for the first time. I was reading The Lord of The Rings at the time too, it was Autumn, I was living in a small village in England, walking thru' the misty countryside with Friends, WIAWSNB, Ramble On, The Battle of Evermore, Four Sticks and Thank You in my head, acting as a kind of soundtrack to the experience. Everything seemed to gell. When I hear the pastoral Zep, I'm back there again...

    Hot pics of Jimmy

    The top pic here of Jimmy reminds me of Holman Hunt's portrait of Rossetti, particularly the expression in the eyes. And the young Rossetti had more than a touch of Pagey about him:
  8. Hmmm...talking of sweaters, here's my profile pic
  9. Agreed, he played great with Santana..Santana 3 and Caravanserai are amazing albums..I like the first Journey album too. He had a lot of fire and melody in his playing
  10. Dancing Days is a beautiful tone, amazingly well balanced..other ones that spring to mind are the solo in 'Since..', 'The Ocean', and I love the tone of the rhythm and lead guitar parts in Travelling Riverside Blues. Jimmy had a great knack in the studio for blending tones and getting the perfect balance and feel when he played distorted..heavy without ever being turgid...so many other guitarists just dial in a generic pub rock distortion sound and run amok. Never Jimmy..he had the masterful grace and touch of a painter
  11. The Battle of Evermore..with In The Light and Rain Song snapping at it's heels...but dependent upon my mood, things change on a daily basis..that's the beauty of Zeppelin; so many moods, so much variety...a banquet of delights.
  12. Crikey, what on earth is on Bonzo's washing line?!
  13. Good pic...Where did you find this? It's from a shoot that was done on Robert's farm in Wales..I've seen a few, are there any others?
  14. I'm new to the Forum, (and forums generally) I collect antiques and books. I live in a village in England. Passions are: art, music, reading, walking in the countryside, guitar playing, Earl Grey Tea, antique hunting I have never smoked, done drugs, and I don't drink. Vegetarian too. (Contrary the above, Life isn't dull!) Oh, and to the banana sandwich brigade, try a little cinnamon sprinkled on the top!
