    Led Zeppelin Archives

    There are hundreds of cheap bootleg compilations like those, not from one of the better boot labels.

    JP tapestry fails to sell at auction

    http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/tops..._at_auction.php WALTHAMSTOW: William Morris tapestry fails to sell at auction By Sarah Cosgrove Part of Sir Edward Burne-Jones' tapestry A TAPESTRY made in William Morris's workshop and owned by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page went under the hammer at Sotheby's. The Pre-Raphelite work, by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, which was expected to sell for £1 million was auctioned but did not reach its reserve price. But other work by Burne-Jones, as well as pieces by Morris himself and Frank Brangwyn did sell at the famous Bond Street auction house. A set of five stunning stained glass panels, also by Burne-Jones, sold for several times more than the estimated value of between £25,000 and £35,000 each, one going for £84,000. A decorative fire screen by Morris sold for £2,500 and a rare sofa by Frank Brangwyn, whose gift to the people of Walthamstow makes up the major part of the William Morris Gallery in Forest Road, Walthamstow, was exhibited and not auctioned but sold separately for an unknown sum. For now the 24ft-long tapestry, called The Attainment: The Vision of the Holy Grail to Sir Galahad, Sir Bors and Sir Perceval, will stay as part of rock star Mr Page's collection. It was woven for Stanmore Hall in Middlesex in 1893 and Mr Page is only its third owner - he bought it himself at auction in 1978. Burne Jones was a lifelong friend of Walthamstow-born William Morris after they bonded over a shared love of poetry at Oxford University, and he was persuaded to become an artist by the younger man. He studied under Dante Gabrielle Rossetti, was influenced by John Ruskin and was largely responsible for bringing the Pre-Raphelites into the mainstream of the British art world. The 24m-wide weave is considered to be a seminal work of the Arts and Crafts movement. It was the star item in a sale of more than 130 lots in a showcase stretching from the Gothic revival of the 1840s through to post-war design of the 1960s. A spokeswoman at the famous Bond Street auction house said she could not say if it would go on sale again.

  14. from Matt Sorum's blog: HANGIN BACKSTAGE WITH MR. ROBERT PLANT 03.22.08 After the last couple of days, and all the craziness Had a really cool surprise, Robert Plant came into our dressing room and we had a nice sit down with him for a least an hour. Its so weird, even though here I am playing in bands for all these years and meeting so many famous musicians and people. This was really a highlight. What a great guy. Have met him before when I was with the Cult. He came to a show at Manchester Apollo. As well as last time with VR there. Tonight was just cool and more intimate I guess We just shot the shit. A few road stories and he told me he wrote Black Country Woman about a girl that was from the area we were playing in called Wolverhampton. Wow, trivia from the man himself. His son was in the opening band and Dad was playing roadie for the night. The band is called Aura and they were young and rockin. Very blues based alot like Zep. Also on the bill is Scott Ians band with his girl Pearl, another kid of rockstar Meatloaf. Awesome singer and great performer. Cool to hang with Scott , good friend and cool dude. So pretty cool night all in all. Got more good news from LA after getting on the bus on the way back to Birmingham. Mike Inez from Alice in Chains went in my new clothing store and bought one of my leather jackets. Like I said Keepin the Rock alive and very well. http://www.mattsorum.tv/channel/2008/03/22...r-robert-plant/
