  1. Plant was asked by host Kyle Meredith whether he would record with Jimmy Page again to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Led Zeppelin. “No, I don’t know, I have no idea. I don’t, I don’t,” Translation: "That is a band matter and you are not in the band." Plant continued. “...it’s not even within my countenance to imagine it really.” Translation: "I cannot imagine me being able to meet the expectations required of being the front man of LZ- I can't hang." Meredith noted that many people hold Led Zeppelin close to their heart. “Yeah, me too,” Plant said. “Nobody more than me. But I don’t want to do it a disservice, either.” Better suited for AK anyway, she is such a sweet soul for taking RPs calls. He can pseudo croon all he wants and know he won't be doing her a disservice. People give JP crap for reworking LZ albums, well RP lives off their music still and has for decades and recrafted them due to his limitations. His set list has been pretty much LZ juke box covers for longer than I care to remember. Can't sing with LZ because of the expectations. Crooner.
  2. the screens at the summit were way way way up high and pretty certain not visible from that vantage point. Unless I am missing what you are seeing which could absolutely happen.
  3. hold close your claims, my posts are for a few- pod pod.
  4. for me the most important citation would be a ticket stub I collect a great deal of of jazz and historic country western memorabilia and the item that is usually available for rare or "in doubt/cancelled" events is a ticket stub. People hang on to them.
  5. Dave lists the following shows as being taped and specifically cites them being recorded on CCTV. Pontiac Silverdome, April 30 1977 The Summit, May 21 1977 Capital Center, May 30 1977 Kingdome, July 17 1977 Dave has taken a great deal of guff for this assertion over the years. You won't find me at the front of the line for DL nor do I believe every word he prints is fact. However... KHOU news cast 5/21/77 showed a short clip of video of LZ during the encore and the news anchor said,"Just as Led Zeppelin began their encore song their guitarist took a nasty spill while retaking the stage. He got right up with a big smile and Led Zeppelin continue to rock The Summit in Houston in Houston tonight much to the delight of their fans." The Summit was state of the art for the day and the venue had video cameras for the sports teams and for broadcasts and CCTV for security and common areas. Obviously. Betamax. Who would have thought. Back on thread tho...
  6. its an ad agency work up mounted on the wall of Earl's Court for the 1974 Boat Show. They are models. Sorry if that bursts the bubble...
  7. sometimes I cannot tell if your answer is from your "show" or if it is from you
  8. I participate in many auctions and trading circles and have not come across anything credible for "new" quite the opposite. Most are rehashed, reworked and frankly a disappointment. Many things being shopped as "sound boards" are not at all. Think about it. Do you really know what a sound board is? A seller recently listed some samples at a Miami collectibles auction of a supposedly new Houston77 recording and it was counterfeit. Try before you buy. I posted in another thread an ALS from Seattle 77 that is "new", it was a sample from a source that supposedly has a download only release in a month or so. He was trying to sell the entire thing for $8500. In previous auctions he has been legit with his collectibles so we will see. No one ponied up the cash for his Seattle77 and the item was withdrawn.
  9. you said "campfire hootenany" was in LAX taking the red eye back to DFW Monday night and Down By the Seaside came on the overhead music. Checked this forum to catch up on posts and read yours. What was cool was about 30minutes earlier I stopped for gas on Man & 405...drove on down passed The Forum. 5th Element
  10. It is not his place to divulge info while he is mostly accurate in his facts, all the facts are not in the article. The only reason he is talking right now is for self promotion and a quest for relevance. The only pot kettle black thing going on is that he is a product of the system that is greed incarnate.

  12. truth I know of 3 hoarders who from time to time will place something at auction and at the last moment withdraw the item(s). Personal experience with all 3, one in West Palm, one in LaJolla, one in Montreal. Wonderful people, just irrational when it comes to letting go its almost as if they are betraying some high call to conserve the moment. Really odd.
  13. to me it all started and ended with Grant, it was his bloody act. Given how much money was already committed when Plant left to attend family, Grant held out hope and even gave assurances that Plant would return and the tour would resume at some point. ..."They had to stay...." was directed at Grant's leverage on the band and crew to stay, that business is business. The crew were required to stay. Dunno about JPJ whereabouts but Page was reputed to be indisposed and missing. Since I was not there it would be poor form to state he was is an opium den with TVs and other and that he was a soul obedient to a master. The havoc surrounding the band from '75 forward was a management decision. It was allowed and encouraged. The event becoming about the event rather than the music was a management decision. [this prevents LZ to this day] Presence recording was a management decision. ITTOD was a management decision. Knebworth was a management decision. Over Europe was a management decision. America was a management decision. Peter Grant... where was your helping Jimmy Page...where did you go where was your bow
  14. RAH is fine, Bath nope. HTTWW project approached both and Bath was a no go. I have heard over the years "no evidence" and that is simply not the case. And as a caution just because a recording is circulated as a "soundboard" does not mean it is a sb or "the" soundboard. A great many recordings being circulated with the sb label is not.
  15. less than a fraction of what went on is in the public lore... the word destroyer falls way short people and people lost track of people ..."They had to stay..."
