  1. I keep thinking of that Tina Turner song 'steamy windows' lol
  2. ok, this is a video not a photo, but my goodness! I didn't realise 1993 was such a good year ;-). Or how my 19 year old self missed this on Top of the Pops..
  3. Love that photo! And I actually like men who smell of beer and ciggies a little bit
  4. Hello SozoZoso and all other plantaides, hope you are well . Well, Glastonbury tickets have arrived - we're taking the kids too as it's a family friendly affair and we'll be on our way back home from a week in Cornwall. Luckily they're only young so hopefully I won't embarrass them too much lol.. I can imagine if he was in a local pub, and if I was there - I think I would probably just end up losing the plot and talking gibberish
  5. I am very excited about Glastonbury - hoping he's wandering around the town earlier in the day or in one of the pubs ;-)
  6. ha ha, Robert and Jimmy are certainly better looking than any of my facebook friends..here's what I found on facetwit (as my Dad calls it) tonight... I am actually liking twitter a bit more since Robert has started with it (although I think some of his posts are 'his own' and some are done by his management team etc)..hoping that he does a few tweets over the next few months now his tour has finished.
  7. Oh now that is nice! thank you
  8. At last, a proper use for facebook - finding nice photos
  9. Found this on facebook, has anyone got a bigger/better quality version?
  10. ^^love it Jessica Tambourines have never been so sexy - anyone got a 'holding a tambourine in the air' pic of our man to cheer up a wet morning in Northern England?
  11. yeah shame we didn't get a video of big log, hubby was up swaying with everyone else by then (everyone in the room was swaying, pretty cool really!). Someone else may have put one on youtube though. I hope he releases a DVD from this tour if it's been filmed somewhere, not only is he in great form but the band are excellent too. Another of hubby's videos for you to enjoy, R&R: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JX7diScnWo4 The only problem after the other night is that I am more obsessed than ever Any of you ladies on here going to the London gig?
  12. honestly, photos don't do them enough justice
  13. SozoZoso Big Log was excellent, had a very atmospheric, spiritual feel to it..and he made fun of his 80's haircut which was funny..I couldn't see his feet from where I was as I was kind of looking across and up slightly from Row 6, just his endless long slim legs...I think he's lost weight recently, he looked quite lean and fit clw we did have beer, and icecream at the interval ..Robert and icecream, now that reminds me of some lovely photos on this thread... Angelah we waited round the side of the Apollo and watched for a bit while the guys loaded all the equipment onto the truck - I was hoping he might come out but not to be - the support band did come out and they were really nice guys, had the time of their lives and were just as awe-struck of Robert as everyone else! Did you hear him say he'd met some people in Manchester earlier yesterday? Bit jealous of whoever that was!
  14. The crowd around us were certainly appreciative from the start, if a little slow to get going properly. But there was certainly a lot of love in the room for Robert (that was just from me lol!). He did Black Dog quite early in the set, and I'd have loved everyone to have stood up from that point. It was WLL that got everyone standing up much later in the set. Originally the tickets were for unreserved standing, but then changed to unreserved seating - that probably changed the atmosphere a little (although possibly better for me as I'm quite small and usually struggle to see!). I think there was a nice rapport between Robert and the crowd all the way through the gig, and a very laid-back and fun atmosphere, and felt quite intimate to me even though it's not that small a venue. He did Big Log and Rock and Roll in the encore, they both went down well. Rock and Roll was my other favorite of the night, really energetic and fun performance. Angelah, it was a fab night I agree - did you wait outside at all afterwards? We did for a while until someone told us he'd already left! Here's another pic, not as clear as the others but think it shows the fun he was having
  15. I do live near Manchester, about 8 miles from the city centre. Hope he does another gig here sometime! although I think i'd be willing to travel further afield to see him again.
  16. ^ I certainly did clw, my friend kept joking with hubby to keep a good hold of me . I will aim for the front row if he plays Manchester again! It's hard to describe if you weren't there, but the whole gig felt quite magical and spiritual, yet personal too - lots of references to Manchester (when he used to play gigs pre-zep etc). Oh and he has a very nice behind, but we all knew that.. Not if this will work, but this is the video hubby got of Going to California...apologies if you can hear me singing at the start!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ2xalOsDj4&feature=youtube_gdata
  17. Lucky enough to sit very near the front at Robert's show in Manchester last night. He looked really well - I've never seen him before 'in person', and was mostly struck by tall he is and his very long slim legs . Vocally he was great and he seems really happy and in a good place right now. Oh, and during Going to California I swear he looked me right in the eyes...(or so I like to believe)!! Couple of photos from hubby's phone..
  18. The ironic thing is she'd probably have aged pretty well without it - shame.
  19. look at how Priscilla is leaning into Robert lol (can't blame her for that)...Patti looks much better and natural - can't see Robert being a fan of the over-botoxed look..
  20. Kenog it cost us £14 for a family of four for the 40 mins - pretty good value I thought. Or there was a two hour trip which was £20 something I think (our kids didn't have the patience for that one ). As far as I could tell there was only one tour operator but I might be wrong. And they have a bar Alternatively you can hire little motor boats too, not sure how much they were though. I also love that area - I'm from the north but my brother used to live nearby so I'm quite familiar with it, but going on the river gives you a different perspective
  21. Thanks everyone for the information and of course the photos, fascinating stuff. You do this forum proud We hadn't gone to Windsor with the intention of even going on a boat trip (we were staying there for one night to take them to Legoland nearby) but the kids talked us into it - if anyone is ever there it's a 40 min round trip from the centre of town. It is a beautiful area, very peaceful (also saw a kingfisher on the river).
  22. I went on a boat trip with the hubby and kids last weekend that went past the Old Mill House in Clewer, Windsor. The tour mentioned how Jimmy owned the house twice, and also Michael Caine, but that was it, no mention of John Bonham's death there, why Jimmy bought and sold the house twice etc...to be fair when you're travelling on a boat they have to fit it all in quickly as you go past everything! Anybody got more background info (or if this is covered somewhere else on the forum point me in the right direction)? I'm interested in knowing a bit more now I've seen it, not just about the obviously tragic event, but Jimmy's motives for buying it, that kind of thing.. Thanks
