  1. I have the Book....looked at it twice thoroughly, and it now sits amongst my 30 plus other Zep related tomes.
  2. Pictures from the Tampa Stadium 1977 riot after show cancelation because of heavy thunderstorms would have been interesting. Kids being beaten and tear gassed by police in riot gear that just happened to show up 6 minutes after the announcement....hmmm. Prepared? Or how about pictures of the waiting lines and traffic jams to get into the Pontiac Silverdome for the record setting 1977 concert there. Newbies don't realize that living through the actual Zeppelin era was the most exciting and mind blowing of times, crowds were insane and the vibe around an upcoming Zep event was beyond comprehension. There is no live act today where and entire city and state would go completely bonkers.
  3. Really....was he caught by surprise? Sometimes these interviews use unexpected means to catch their guests off guard. But that is weird and very embarrassing if so. I'm hoping Jimmy was just wondering "WTF..."
  4. There's only one problem with Jimmy's latest interview on France's Le Grand Journal television....it's in French.
  5. Jimmy himself is made to look rather "ghostly" in this filtered pic. He looks more "dead" than alive... Cool vibe and it's great to see him with his personal rig all set up and ready to play about...Theremin too. Interesting. No hopes, no expectations, no thoughts other than it's always good to see Jimmy alive and well...
  6. Success on the Zeppelin level is not all it's cracked up to be. Ride the wave and then drown in the same sea.
  7. And when the BBC interviewer asks the inevitable question of a Zeppelin re-union and tour....Jimmy simply replies "No." That's it folks - NO tour or re-union, no more Zeppelin, end of story.
  8. It's not only the Greta Van Fleeting comparison, that's just the latest nonsense, it's been ALL the comparisons of the other much lesser bands throughout the years since Zep landed in 1980. Such as: Whitesnake, Great White, Wolfmother, Coverdale/Page, Royal Blood, Kingdom Dum, etc.... C/mon...really?
  9. Interestingly at the end of the BBC Interview regarding these tapestries, the reporter asks Jimmy if a Zeppelin reunion was ever going to be a possibility...his answer was a flat out - "No."
  10. Exactly Steve. I've been on this Train since '69 and there is little in the Book that really excites me. Similar to the O2 concert and the re-re-re-masters, once again they provided a very "garden salad" approach to what should be a fuckin' acid trip!
  11. Yeah, that ain't gonna happen. We thought Earl's Court complete may be released as well...nope.
  12. Hey all, I finally received my LZXLZ book yesterday after almost a week's delay because it was damaged in shipping. The new one arrived in great shape and I am impressed by the quality of the book itself. The content is a whole other matter. If anyone is looking for real insight and unique postings by the band members - you'll be as disappointed as I am. Other than some un-seen photos and a paragraph here and there from the members there is nothing to scream or whisper home about. Sadly, this is as generic a tome about such an amazing Band as one can get. Yes, it's cool to look at the new pics, but so many landmark events from the stage years are missing or terribly passed by briefly that it left me wondering how much time Robert and JPJ really put into this project. And there is nothing to represent any personal life away from the stages to give us insight to their off-time other than the photos we've seen many times before. There is a cool pic of Robert and two elder gentlemen chatting... All in all, I put the book down after paging through carefully looking for those hidden gems...I came up with some nice pieces of stone but no rubys or diamonds. Disappointing to say the least. That said, this photo album to a newbie will be a great possession to own. Especially if they don't have access to the Internet - where many of these photos, and many better ones, can be seen with little effort. I have many books on Zeppelin, and to me they are by miles the most photogenic band in history. No one comes close. The LZXLZX50 trip down memory lane leaves me with nothing new and exciting to make a return flight. This is my opinion of course - I'm sure many fans will love it. Another let down after so much anticipation...does anyone remember the re-masters,,,??
