  1. I know this has been discussed in the past given the wide availability of the Crystal Bay bootleg, but this new article at Ultimate Classic Rock has interviews with members of both local bands Jimmy got up onstage with in the spring of 1991 in Lake Tahoe. Interesting how the shows he did with Public Eye consisted of mainly Zeppelin songs when none of them were performed at Crystal Bay. Also, playing bass and doing a Yardbirds only set? That's wild.
  2. A handy - and extensive - list of the things of note the three have done since the band broke up, courtesy of Ultimate Classic Rock. Forgive me if this belongs in 'News'.
  3. As much as I believe Gorman, and if you read his book he really isn't grinding an axe, just telling things like they were, I don't understand if it were true why Jimmy would get up onstage with The Black Crowes in 2011 if he was so insulted? I wish Steve would have addressed that.
  4. Working on an anniversary piece on 'Walking Into Clarksdale' (jouro here_ and came across a really interesting exchange. Dean Goodman talked to Page & Plant in a dual interview and posed the question: "I UNDERSTAND YOU APPROACHED JOHN PAUL JONES THIS TIME, BUT HE TURNED YOU DOWN?" (caps his, not mine) Robert and Jimmy did their typical evasive attempt at humor to deflect the conversation, with the former basically saying nobody would be interested either way, Regardless, I'm curious, because I've never heard that Jonesy was even in the conversation at the time. It would have been incr
  5. The show is dedicated to Led Zeppelin. The interviewer asks about Led Zeppelin. It's not a show review, it's an interview. Also, regarding the JBLZE, he asks him: 1. Hardest songs to play 2. How he decides on what version of the songs to play 3. About the songs he's playing live that are underrated. It's for the mainstream as well, and the line of questioning was meant to cover a wide range of topics that many people are not that familiar with.
  6. Vanyaland has a pretty wide ranging interview with Jason today. He talks about playing with Jimmy on the Outrider tour and says that "In my heart of hearts" that he thinks Zep will perform again.
  7. Hey Friends...Vanyaland has another prize pack giveaway to celebrate the release of Physical Graffiti...and this one is super simple to enter. Check it out!
  8. Here's what I learned from the book: Robert wanted to leave Zeppelin before In Through the Out Door...but Jimmy threatened to bring in Roy Harper as the new singer so Robert freaked out and came back. Fate of Nations is the high point in Plant's career - it's a masterpiece in every conceivable way. Walking Into Clarksdale was the low point...but not as low as Coverdale/Page - Coverdale was nothing more than a shrieker in the vein of Axl Rose. No one else in Zeppelin respected Robert. He showed them by having the most successful solo career. Touring with Jimmy for Unledded w
  9. Also, as we're all aware, the band reunited at Jason's wedding. This book claims that they did so at Carmen and Charlie's wedding. Has anyone else heard this before?
  10. Absolutely terrible book. It's got a very anti-Zeppelin tone, which is just bizarre, and the author (Dave Thompson) goes on and on multiple times about "Battle of Evermore" and how it is a band highlight - especially lyrically. In the foreword, the guy seems bitter that the Robert Plant: A Life book came out before his, and denounces every other book that has come out on Plant and/or Zep as worthless - especially with those that are sourced by people who actually know the subject(s) personally because most have an axe to grind. Then again, the press release touts Thompson as the "author of
