  1. There is but a simple solution to RP and his detractors, stop playing LZ tunes in your set, simple.

    Lets look at the facts, RP cuts PAE, and plays live, with no LZ numbers, then he cuts POM, tours, yet still no LZ numbers. I have the Sounds weekly papers still with his interviews, where he says, 'I'm not playing Zep songs without Zeppelin'. SnS is then released, tour, but no LZ numbers. Then the solo career starts to wane a bit, Live Aid comes along at that time, and RP sees this as an avenue to explore, he's on tour at the time, as is JP with the Firm. Tours end and they regroup and rehearse, yet this then falls apart. RP then goes off and forms another group, and lo and behold, this group start to include LZ numbers on the subsequent tours. This arrangement then starts to fall apart, and RP is interested in doing LZ with JP, but with 'different arrangements' when this then starts to water down into a 4 piece and there is talk of JPJ being involved, it all comes to a halt. This has been the Norm then for all RPs dates since, with what ever line up he has put together , and this is where people have a problem with his understanding of what is the right thing to do.

    Personally I think RP is quite right to persue his own musical avenues, yet I do think that LZ could be a 'sideline' for him, with festival appearances and the like, He does also have the knack of making and releasing new music when there is massive LZ interest, this can only be interpreted as being a vehicle to further his own solo career.

    Disagree or agree with me if you like, and feel free to fill in any gaps that I may have missed out. The problem I believe is between the band members themselves.

  2. Peterborough showcase cinema Cambridgeshire ,East of England, I posted this on TBL facebook page yesterday,

    I went to the pub on the way home :-)blank.gif So, my summary from the evening, the place was only half full? I thought that a bit odd, and when we left the queue for the 9-30 showing was quite small as well, Where was everybody, maybe there aren't that many Zep fans in Peterborough? Anyway, the concert was IMO, briliiant,it took the cinema about three numbers to sort the volume out, after that it was good sound wise. Dave is right the joy was evident, even my partner commented that JP looked so happy that she felt that too. Major + for me was that Jason was AWESOME! Nothing was really missing for me, apart from 'Achilles' and I would've loved to have had 'In the Evening'. When we left, those that were there all felt that it was great, everyone was talking to each other about it walking to the carpark, even though it was raining hard :-(blank.gif. Can't wait for the DVD :-)blank.gif. I hope that everybody enjoyed it, like we did :-)blank.gif
