  1. ^^^ wouldn't surprise me a bit if Page bought Plant out!
  2. Love this album. For my money, "Burning Up" is one of the hottest Page guitar tracks in his entire post-Zeppelin career. He's on FIRE! Should've been a single. Don't know WTF Atlantic was thinking missing out on that one... Saw Page/Plant numerous times on the `95 tour and they were brilliant. But they were never better than they were on the `98 tour, IMHO.
  3. The Kennedy Center Honors event was Dec. 2, when Weinstein, Clinton, and Obama cornered the Zeppelin gents and tried to strong-arm them into doing a HUGE benefit show at Madison Square Garden...in 10 days. Were they crazy? Seriously? Jimmy should have rightly not only said no...he should have laughed right in their faces. 10 days to put a Led Zeppelin reunion together? Dream on, guys...and next time, if you want to try and get Zeppelin, give them a few months notice for fuck's sake.
  4. Jimmy Page said in an interview once that "Make or Break" was his personal favorite Firm number, especially the ad-lib section towards the end. I agree, it's a killer track!
  5. He very politely went to the loo so as not to pollute anyone's air. And he paid the fine without complaint. He even asked to be arrested, lol. Priceless. The Independent (London) June 2, 1995, Friday BYLINE: Maryann Bird SECTION: INTERNATIONAL; Page 13 Where's the justice when a rock star can't even get arrested? Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin's legendary founder, discovered that breaking the ban on in-flight smoking just isn't enough these days. On a flight from San Francisco to Portland, Oregon, for a recent concert, Page locked himself in a toilet and lit a cigarette. The alarm sounded and the flight crew notified the authorities in Portland. A police report said the intoxicated rocker tried to persuade officers to arrest him, admitted to smoking and acknowledged he knew it was not allowed. But going to jail just isn't an option under the smoking ban. Page could still be fined up to $ 1,000 (around pounds 620) if he is prosecuted after the Federal Aviation Administration investigates further.
  6. He's Jimmy Page and he can smoke anywhere he bloody well wants to! lol. But seriously...in this day and age, he might want to go back to private planes and avoid the noxious non-smokers. ;-)
  7. Rockin' at Midnight (Honeydrippers) Watching you The Greatest Gift Calling to You I Believe (damn, it's tough to limit this to only 5 songs!)
