  1. Robert played electric guitar on stage during "You Shook Me" at the well documented performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Juli 1993 ...
  2. This 2-CD just turned up on the "grey market" via amazon: SUPERB 1985 BROADCAST RECORDING FROM THE FIRM With Jimmy Page and Paul Rodgers Formed in 1984 by singer Paul Rodgers, guitarist Jimmy Page, drummer Chris Slade and bass player Tony Franklin, The Firm were among the most successful and popular rock supergroups of all time. As Paul Rodgers remembers; "Jimmy was at a bit of a loose end. He'd come round and check out my home studio and we ended up writing songs, but without any definite plans. Jimmy was very keen to get back on the road, so we put a band together The first thing I knew was that he had to be writing songs again. I'd already seen one of my friends going down that road in Koss, and it wasn't going to happen again." During their tenure, The Firm released two studio albums; their eponymous debut in 1985, and Mean Business in 86. The band played a few dates in the UK at the end of 1984, and toured the US in both 1985 and 1986. One of the finest gigs the Firm performed however was at London s Wembley Arena on 22nd May 1985, when they played a quite astonishing set which was recorded for live FM Radio Broadcast across the UK and the US, and which remains a formidable example of mid-1980s British rock music at its very best. Previously unreleased, this entire recording is now available for the first time on this new 2 CD Set. DISC 1 1. Closer 4:00 2. City Sirens 4:43 3. Make Or Break 5:16 4. The Morning After 5:10 5.

  3. Great pics, what a cool story ...thanks for sharing!
  4. By the way: there were 30sec promo commercials on australian TV for the Sydney shows in Feb. 1996 - got it somewhere on DVD.
  5. ... the concert was recorded at the Oberrheinhalle in OFFENBURG and not in Offenbach, which is a different city near Frankfurt and 200miles away!
  6. Thanks for sharing the 8mm Video ... this was one the three shows I saw on that last tour ... brings back great memories.
  7. "The kind you would use for screening your Home movies ." Claude Nobs filmed 100's of the shows he promoted in Montreux and stocked'em in his private archive ...
  8. Just would like to point out, it was the late and great JEFF BUCKLEY who said that at a concert in Australia, as Jimmy Page and Robert Plant sat in the audience and Jimmy told that tale later in an interview.
  9. ... wouldn´t expect a 2hour show - Robert doesn´t play that long anymore, anywhere. Suspecting an afternoon appearance I guess he'll play for an hour plus encores. An appearance at the annual Pinkpop usually means broadcasts on FM and dutch TV ...
  10. Thanks, already have the recommended "Final Acclaim" and Dave´s even more detailed "Feather In The Wind" too and if you know Mannheim, you´d understand why Plant, Jones and Bonzo were anxious for the weekend in Munich ...
  11. Have seen both sold-out shows on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd of July in Mannheim (and Munich too). The Ice-Stadium in Mannheim was not a building, more a little, partly walled stadium oval roofed with a big canvas tent over it. It had a capacity of 8.500 and the house was more than packed each night - Zep were late, no matter what the ticket said,and yes, there were no more trains leaving afterwards, what meant spending two nights in sleeping bag on the hard floors at the station in those wet, cold summer days and being waked up at dawn by the railway police. First night Jimmy was late on his way from Frankfurt(where he performed with Santana the night before) and as far as I can remember, by 8.30PM Promoter Fritz Rau came on stage and apologized for the delay, asking for patience. As Zep entered the stage it was 9.30PM - first night was much hotter than the next, an ecstastic rowdy atmosphere and smells of weed all over the place, as there were thousands of GI's, based in Ramstein, Frankfurt and Heidelberg. I was deeply touched as I witnessed, how those tough and drunken guys were literally driven to tears and started crying like little nasty boys as Jimmy played the opening chords of "Stairway To Heaven" 2nd night they came on a bit earlier, but not sooner as 9.00PM and although the crowd was even more enthusiastic, it seemed the whole evening like Zep were on a rush - speeding up the whole event and finally they stayed on stage between 1st and 2nd encore and nailed down a quick "Communication B´down" with Jimmy soloing on his knees instead of "Whole Lotta Love". This impression could easily be proved by audience recordings, lasting approx 130 minutes for the first but only 115 minutes for the 2nd night. Would really appreciate photos from these shows, as they will bring back and lighten up great memories.
  12. German ROLLING STONE is announcing two shows for ROBERT PLANT & SSS on July 16, 2014 in Berlin and July 17, 2014 in Dresden.
  13. Which version of Offenburg is the one to get? Try "Live In Offenburg - The Eddie Edwards Mix" pulled together from three different audience-sources ...
