  1. Welcome to LZ:s gold record celebration in Stockholm 1973: "Led Zeppelin receives gold record at sex club Chat Noir" https://herrtidning.wordpress.com/2015/06/28/led-zeppelin-tar-emot-guldskiva-pa-porrklubben-chat-noir/
  2. That's OK, maybe it should be "No one can remember if Spirit played Taurus Live at any event or venue that Zeppelin attended." I haven't studied the docs at Scribd enough to be completely sure.
  3. That is wrong, if one reads the docs posted at scribd it's clear that they included Taurus in their sets often in 1967, and probably (much) less frequently in 1968 and later. What is interesting of course is if they played Taurus when they played the same venue as Zeppelin, I don't think they managed to prove that.
  4. When I said that Taurus sounded more lite STH than CMAR that was just IMO, I haven't done any musical analysis. It's obvious if one reads this that Spirit played Taurus live many times in the sixties: https://www.scribd.com/doc/307973357/Summary-Judgment-Ruling-in-Skidmore-v-Led-Zeppelin
  5. I haven't found much info about the trust, but these links indicate that at least some of the money is going in the right direction: http://www.vcstar.com/news/education/elementary-school-band-is-rock-musicians-legacy-ep-363463554-352053911.html https://www.newwestsymphony.org/education/harmony-project.php http://camarillo.macaronikid.com/article/911630/14th-annual-festival-of-talent-is-saturday-feb-28
  6. Page confessed to having the the album in his collection. The document linked below lists several recorded live performances of Taurus, most of them from 67. https://www.scribd.com/doc/304931296/Skidmore-v-Led-Zeppelin-Kevin-Hanson-expert-Declaration-pdf Cry Me A River is sounds a lot like Stairway but Taurus is even closer!
  7. OK, now I understand you a bit better. But you say it (the Randy California trust) "appears to be quite fishy". What evidence do you have?
  8. They are giving the money away to charity and I you call them greedy?? That's what _I_ would call "some seriously sick and twisted logic"....
  9. Recent interview clip with Jay about the lawsuit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nimD1T7VDdI He doesn't say much. Jay played keyboards with Joe Walsh during the late seventies, and Joe played on many of Jays solo-albums. Alice Cooper recently covered Spirits 'I Got A Line On You', Walsh played on it.
  10. Jay Ferguson was the _vocalist_ of Spirit. He sometimes played percussion.
  11. I don't know if this has been posted here yet, but here's an audio clip of an interview with Randy California just a few weeks before his death. It's about STH of course...: http://turnmeondeadman.com/randy-californias-thoughts-on-stairway-to-heaven/
  12. Mark Andes arrives at court for Stairway To Heaven trial: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1299570/Mark-Andes-arrives-court-Stairway-Heaven-trial.html
  13. "I recall seeing the group Spirit use one" [a theremin] (Jimmy Page, in the book "Tangents within framework" by Howard Mylett, p. 23) And now all of a sudden he doesn't remember anything;-)
