  1. I would suggest this comment is applicable in many cases. Simply supplement “Jagger and Richards” for other names, including two much closer to home.
  2. A fantastic track, one that makes the hair stand up on the back of the neck. Definitely one of my favourites, and I’m eternally disappointed there were no other versions recorded. A more up to date example of a similar approach would be Page and Plant’s cover of Crossroads, not as classic in my view as the infamous Cream version but good nonetheless. Regarding TRB, I recall hearing this a few years back and thinking there were some similarities. All in the ringing chords I guess. https://youtu.be/BApLADZ8FnM
  3. I used to be a fantastic law enforcement agent, perhaps the best. I revolutionised the role of law enforcement some say, and was top of my game for well over a decade. Buford T Justice had quite a reputation! Then it all fell apart. Some guy called The Bandit arrived and me and my team were derided overnight, seen as overblown dinosaurs. I retired from public view after a team member passed away after binging on coffee and doughnuts, and for a few years nursed a hitherto undisclosed Cod Liver Oil addiction. I occasionally emerged from retirement to see if the old magic was there -
  4. A number of years ago now, prior to the re-release of the albums and companion discs, O2 and such like, the Sunday Times rich list indicated that Page was worth £60 million. I can only presume this has increased - the odd Berkshire mansion purchase notwithstanding. Expense-wise he seems quite frugal - the old green army type jacket worn at the Wembley Foo Fighter gig must have disintegrated due to frequency of donning, and the black leather jacket seen endlessly over the last year or so is well on the way to the same fate. Accumulating more vinyl can't be overly cumbersome to his bulging walle
  5. No joke at all. I have it on good authority that a full-scale Pink Floyd reunion tour was abandoned last year because Roger Waters was preoccupied with a particularly gnarly weed that had become entangled in one of his mansions water spouts. Brian Johnson's "hearing problem" is actually a cover story as he battles to save his Buckinghamshire mansion from rapidly spreading Japanese knotweed. Add the Page issue to these examples and I think we all have to accept that home improvements are the biggest enemy to rock and roll since the heyday of Nancy Reagan. Expec
  6. To my mind there are several factors which may or may not have some bearing on whether he plays live at this event, or in a more sustained manner thereafter. 1. The work involved in the album reissues were regularly given as the reason for not moving to play live. That excuse - which was repeatedly given in endless interviews - this surely ended with Coda. 2. See 1, and add in an almost out of the blue re-release of an expanded BBC sessions (because clearly we all needed another version of the tracks provided last time!). Again, workload with this was the excuse given. 3. Prior
  7. I've been piecing together some strands of possible evidence which may inform Jimmy's next musical direction. Jimmy confirms, in numerous past interviews, his appreciation for Soundgarden's music - check. Jimmy seen backstage at several Soundgarden shows, including last summer's Hyde Park gig with Sabbath - check. Jimmy interviewed recently by Chris Cornell - check. Ross Halfin currently on tour with Soundgarden, photographing the Australian and New Zealand legs - check. Jimmy on the final leg of the reissues and, post book launch and previous campaigns, keen to enter the next stage
  8. Any truth in the rumour that they all will meet at the crossroads just east of Clarksdale on the eve of the winter solstice and discuss reunion options then? I'd heard Satan himself was impressed with the mammon already offered but suggested they hold out for $1 billion each and a rider that included a stairlift being fitted to the Starship alongside one of those walk in bath shower things. Sounds about as logical as much of the other assertions elsewhere in this thread. For any tabloid journalists interested in my source for this please DM me - pretty sure you can get a double page spre
  9. Over the Hills and Far Away on MTV back in 1993. Bought Houses of the Holy, then best of, then the complete boxed set.

  11. I'm not crediting the journalists of the time, more the comments, theories, assessments, detailed reviews (with the benefit of hindsight and readjustment to consider legacy) expounded by numerous parties during the intervening years. These views and questions have been heard by the musicians endlessly - isn't there a point where they could indeed start to muddle the reality with the painted theory? I'd suggest it's entirely feasible that artists could take credit for things that have been said in the time since under the guise of "that's exactly what we meant to do." Anything that adds addit
  12. Buford T Justice, on 16 Oct 2014 - 09:03 AM, said: I watched It Might Get Loud yesterday and Jimmy commented the structure if Stairway was similar to an orgasm, the build and release. Now, I. May be doing him a disservice, but that sounds more like the regurgitation of a comment from an interviewer who has analysed the track far more than the creators likely ever did. The song itself is constructed as a stairway...it does gradually build to a release. Yes, I realise the structure is built that way and so it's a relevant description. My point is whether that was genuinely in the minds o
  13. I often wonder how many of the stories became "fact" having been read, re-read, asked and re-asked of him by countless interviewers. Hear the same thing often enough and it can become a stock answer, whether it's really true or not.

  14. I'm afraid I can't help but feeling totally underwhelmed by this reissue campaign. There's so much more information available online that the collectors will have sought out - I've just spent the last hour or so listening to a number of takes of Four Sticks and Ramble On for example, with/without certain instruments, overdubs etc. I presume this campaign is to make some rarities and pieces of interest available to the more casual of mainstream fan.....and I don't think it achieves that. The takes on there this far don't differ sufficiently from the album originals to prompt a listener to regul
  15. During the Ocean and other such gaffes/intentional additions/oversights/etc. Anyone know why they haven't been asked? Given their status and the acceptance if their production values I'd have thought they'd have been a favourite to be asked to participate. So, with that in mind why have they refused? Surely one member vetoing wouldn't mean another couldn't proceed?
