  1. Thanks Steve. I always thought it curious but not surprising that the elder vocalists of the day did not participate. Plant, Jagger, Mac etc.
  2. I don’t recall seeing him in the video, perhaps you could elaborate on what scenes he was in. Possibly edited out of the final take?
  3. Question? Was Robert ever invited to the Band-Aid sessions? I’ve never heard anything either pro or con on the subject.
  4. Tommy Bolin under appreciated and gone too soon. https://youtu.be/RCbc0XnrKk8
  5. “There are other great drummers, and then there is Buddy Rich” Neil Peart
  6. Was fun to explore the new site today. I especially liked the links to the various songs and the variety of artists JPJ has worked with over the years. The Diamanda Galás, Jones appearance on Jon Stewart was something to watch.
  7. Does Jimmy’s acceptance of a good smack in the face from Plant for showing up drunk to a show in ‘95 count as a good backstage disagreement?
  8. Interesting that Plant talks about the fist pumping crowd in Manheim Germany composed of mostly males that made him recoil from his work with JP in ‘98. Who did he think his audience would be compromised of? Still pandering to the shaken and stirred crowd that never was. Good grief already with the riddles and the meandering prattle too. Does he talk like that in the pub? Nah, I bet not.
  9. Was a good interview. Robert sounds like he is enjoying life and his craft. Good for him.
  10. It does look like Joan Hudson in the picture. I do doubt Jimmy was dating her though. I’m to guess that she was there as an honored guest of the band for the long service she has provided. Completely irrelevant who Jimmy might have been keeping time with at this point. Some young dame, doesn’t matter her name. The exchange was a fair one. Her beauty, his prestige. The Song Remains the Same.
  11. At the first listen to the May Queen and Bones of Saints I didn’t like it at all and dismissed the entire collection. Gave the the whole album a chance and now thourley enjoy it. Carry Fire is a great track and got my attention with the first listen. Plant is doing great work at this stage of his career. It’s not rock and it’s not for everyone for sure. It suits him, the lion in the winter of his career. 40 + years I’ve been listening to Robert Plant and he still is bringing his best for us to enjoy or not.
  12. I've been a Robert Plant fan my entire lifetime. Always will be too. The last album and the first song from this one has me pinning for Shaken and Stirred. I just can't enjoy or appreciate his current direction with songs like this. I'll hold out hope for the rest of the album
  13. Zeppelin was done by 1980 even if John Bonham had lived. Jimmy was too far gone past his good and creative days. Plant wanted away from the circus and Peter Grant was a mess as well at that point. The young and hungry band was gone and the 80's version would have been a drug addicted alcoholic shame to the great band they once were.
  14. Page has always needed Jones to give him that something extra that didn't always show up in the songwriting credits. I would love to hear what they came up with in 2008.
  15. Thanks for the link. That's a nice site.
  16. Is there any news as to when this will be released?
  17. I keep thinking about the '98 tour and while jimmy was playing great, the audience was lining up for the bathroom and beer refills while they played their Clarksdale material. The cd didn't sell all that well either. Combination of disinterest from the newer generation of fans and material that just didn't live up to expectations. How could it? Touring on greatest hits from years gone past can't be something that would have befitted Zeppelin. Thanks to Robert for seeing that and resisting the money and ego kick. The last great song Jimmy wrote was Achilles and that was in '76.
  18. I quite disagree. John Paul Jones has never been better than he is now, in either his musicianship or creativity. Just wait until he releases The Goast Sonata until you make that judgement. Robert has continued to be creative as well even though his path has not been in expectation with many of his long time fans. Jimmy has been the only one who retired, which is fine too. I just wish he would comes to grip with it and stop leading naive people on.
  19. I personally doubt that jones ever thought to bring jimmy anywhere near them crooked vultures. Whatever happened between jones and page during their time together after the o2 was enough to put jimmy into retirement. The vocalist and the timing in which he was introduced seems like a lame excuse. My opinion is that jimmy could not grasp making music at jones's level and didn't want to embarrass himself anymore.
  20. Was probably too much for jimmy to take, being the lessor musician to jones and having him dictate the musical direction at a level that he could no longer reach.
  21. I think Plant hit his prime right around the time of the honeydrippers and principle of moments. His voice had matured for sure, but I don't think you can measure his worth by vocal abilities alone.
  22. Why does it really matter if someone writes or stamps their name anyway? What value does it bring to the recipient either way? Celebrity worship is beyond dumb and I can't get my mind around the reasons people line up so someone can write or stamp their name on a piece of paper. You already know their name and it's not like the signer of autographs is going to have a real conversation with all of the people on line. Sheesh!
  23. Totally agree. Led Zeppelin ceased to exist the day John Bonham died. Their is just no intelligent debate to the contrary. He meant that much to that band!!!
