  1. I suggest you get your o2 dvd orders in for Christmas 2010. Small post but you will remember it!
  2. "In and Out" - with the album cover showing Miss Honeydrippers bum and tattoo (see Led Zeppelin Tattoos thread)
  3. I have been of the opinion since the end of the O2 concert that Robert would never do it again. He was smiling but I took that smile to be him saying to himself "Thank God that is over, it was nice to do it again just one more time, I didn't foul up too badly but never again thank you very much" Since then I have thought that any new singer would be Kelly Hansen from Foreigner. Are we all sure that it is actually Steve Tyler who has been rehearsing as Kelly Hansen looks very similar, but younger. Anyone who has seen Foreigner in the last few years would have heard him sing some Zeppelin and I
  4. I thought in the opening shots Leona looked like a drag artist. Also I didn't realise she was that tall- she must be at least 12 feet. At least Jimmy looked well turned out and smiling!
  5. Given JP's "duet" with Leona Lewis and RP's association with Alison Krauss which is fantastic and the best concert I have been to for years (you will have to decide if I was at the O2 in December!) should we assume JB is coming to UK to drum for Girls Aloud? Surely he would want to follow the fashion and team with women rather than some old rockers?
  6. This is true. I wondered when the news would hit. He leaves at the end of this month and comes to England. Welcome to the rain Jason!
  7. I think it's great news that the wonderful Leona Lewis has been chosen to represent UK in the Olympic closing ceremony. Now I know who David Beckham is but I am buggered if I know which team she plays for. I think it may be Arse nal. I have, however, heard of Johnny Page and he is a wonderful pianist - so it should be a joy to watch. But would it not be more appropriate for that old skiffle combo Led Zeppelin to play? If Mr Plant is worried about paying for an airline ticket we could have a collection. I believe he is currently unemployed so he would have the time. Mr Page appears to be
  8. Gramm would be a non-starter BUT I have been thinking for ages that the singer in the present Foreigner, Kelly Hansen, would do the job very well. He is young, looks like Steve Tyler and can belt out a tune. In the Foreigner set they do about a minute and a half of Whole Lotta Love. I was at one of the Foreigner gigs in 2006 and just happened, as you do, to be standing next to Plant. When the band broke into WLL the old man went pale, a youngster has stolen his song and sounded just like him. He looked really annoyed. So for that reason alone (and I am one of those who agree with Plant's re
  9. Is that what you think? So you think I am not a "right" sort of fan? Why is that? That to which you are a slave is over. All that is left is the music and the memories. No-one needs to be a slave to that! Whilst in 2008 you can enjoy the music and the memories (that is what a fan does) you should not be a fanatic over something that happened a long time ago. We can see in other areas of life what problems fanatics bring. Your country, Australia, is one of the few countries which sees that and takes steps to prevent it. However a Zeppelin fanatic is pretty harmless!
  10. Pray tell me what the "right" kind of Zeppelin fan is? Is it:- 1. Someone who was in his/her late teens in 1969 and is now is about the same age as the band members and is a respectable citizen? 2. Someone young who thinks it is cool to be retro? 3. Someone who lives in la-la land and thinks the band (complete with Robert) will record/tour again? 4. Someone who believes that the spirit of Zeppelin is alive and well? If so what was that spirit (other than good songs (often "borrowed")? Sure they did some things that other men would have loved to have done, but they were never rev
  11. Wow! Great pictures - best I have seen. I just about saw myself in a crowd scene and in one of the Pilot outside shots! Thanks for the memory.
  12. Is that the sum total - just the 5 of us? The Pilot was full with, I guess, 300 LZ fans there. Surely some more folk can drop by here and say hi?
  13. If you were in The Pilot on Sunday 9th. December just drop in here and say hi.
  14. I may have missed it but I have never seen an announcement as to how much money was raised at this charity event. It's now been almost four months since the concert. If I haven't missed an announcement four months does seem a long time for the accountants to add the figures up. Has anyone heard anything? All I have heard from someone who professes to know Jimmy was that the amount raised wasn't as much as we may have thought - but he was probably talking bollocks.
  15. They may or may not have been brilliant. What I said was they couldn't sell out all the venues which is fact.
  16. I have noticed that this LZ forum is just a little quieter than it was in mid December last year. I am perceptive like that. No amount of crap on here is going to make them play again if they don't want to. My guess is that it is at present 75% / 25% in favour of doing something more. RP is the 25%. As we all know RP starts his tour with Alison Krauss next month. So how can he announce he will be doing something again with LZ even if he wanted to? To do that would deflect from his Plant/Krauss tour and project. Unlike the others he has a very viable project underway. Why would he want
  17. Mine is framed. I am looking at it now. The colour didn't go with my eyes so I took it off.
  18. To see/hear Robert's answer to THE QUESTION go to bbc.co.ukhomepage You need to go to the BBC iPlayer part of the website. He was interviewed on The One Show tonight and at the end of the programme gives the answer. It must be the official answer! Maybe someone else can work out how to give a direct link. Sorry I haven't got a clue how to do that.
  19. My mate didn't deserve to go. I got the tickets and asked him if he wanted to go. Good seats third block, just in front of the FooFighters and to the right of Steward Copeland. And do you know he didn't offer to pay me £7500 or whatever the going rate was. He didn't offer to let me sleep with his wife or borrow his car for 3 years. He didn't give me his house or lend me his credit card. What a lousy mate. But we enjoyed it! He has, to redeem himself bought me a ticket to see Robert and Alison Krauss - sodoes that make us quits? Maybe! Anyway what are friends for?
  20. From where I stood, and from where the tears were flowing from my eyes, Kashmir was the best. Worst? Much as it surprised me I thought STH was the worst. It seemed out of sync with the other songs and tired. Maybe Robert was right about it? But what a night and I haven't recovered yet!
  21. My copy arrived from Amazon UK yesterday. Have started to look at it. Some errors so far and I am only on page 13. I am disappointed. It seems just a rehash of what is already common knowledge. I think the author must be american.
  22. I have a feeling that there will be a tour announcement next week (w/c/4 February) Just putting this here as a record of my prophesy! I have up until now said there will be no tour, but have changed my mind today. I don't know why, just have a feeling. I don't think there should be a tour and that the O2 closed things, but I hope for the sake of countless LZ fan(atic)s that my prophesy is right. I feel it will be Tuesday.
  23. Ok - let's wait to see who else is up for it and then make a decision. So serious offers of interest and amount offered please and we will see where we can go with it. Remember it would be a share in a real piece of Led Zeppelin memorabilia!
  24. Well! My suggestion of all chipping in £50 and buying Bron Y Aur (if the vicar wanted to sell) was tongue in cheek BUT if lots of people are interested in putting in some money and us all owning it en masse shout up. It could be done with enough interest.
