  1. That original song at the end is alright.. They've got something.
  2. Page's first guitar, the one he found in the house he had just moved to with his parents was a Grazioso..
  3. Jimmy has my appreciation for developing a new (to Led Heds) guitar style. In 77 and 80 he's avoiding strong bends and struggling with hand strength. I wanted to hear searing bluesy fast licks like LZII, and that's not what I was getting as I listened to a 1984 live simulcast from England on Boston's WBCN. It took a while to get into the country feel of the b-string bender telecaster. Listening back, this is a brave period for Jimmy, New style, different tone, new songs. I love this Jimmy for starting over, fresh. "Together" is one of my favorites for it's sad b string bending and intense climax.
  4. Robert's got a lot to be proud of, and the child, his brothers and sister have indian heritage.
  5. oh yes.. i even have a favorite noise section.. san jose 95, fm similcast. Shake my tree and Saccharine both have killer riffs.. i think its the offbeat hi hat in Saccharine that seals the deal.
  6. John Paul Jones wrote at least one tune in a Ventures style.. Called Baja. First version I became familiar with was by Jody Foster's Army, an 80 s skate punk band.. I like surf music.
  7. Graham Bond, the potential member of Cream that Robert Stigwood wouldnt sign, believed in magic, had friends who left England to escape curses. Graham Bond had other problems before he died in 1974, but curses rank as one of them. Some kind of battle seemed to break out between witchy brethren of the 60s. Page was famously rumored cursed by Kenneth Anger around this time. The fog of drugs limits the ability to pin the blame, but Jimmy has been running, walking and crawling against the wind since 1975.
  8. D'Yer Makr was the first and only Led Zeppelin song I heard for a long time, and I liked it not. In NYC the soul radio would play that track only, prolly cuz Zep played so many shows at MSG in 1977. On this station I heard "Have a cigar" by Pink Floyd but it was in disco format and with female voices. I thought that's how it was for 3 years. In 1979 I started hearing all the rock they call classic now. It was new to me and I was the right age to hear it.
  9. Seems like they got into a fight or something.. a quarrel. There was some build up, some fanfare, then ice. Meanwhile bootlegs are arriving, getting better, while showing that the best band in the world can't be perfect, ever. I miss Jimmy Page. I wish he'd do something new.
  10. Os Mutantes in the late 1960s: Video clip: https://binged.it/2w8leSR
  11. They should have had Iron Butterfly play, who were sounding good that year, well rehearsed and stage tested.
  12. How old you are has an effect on how critical you might be. I was a grocery delivery boy in 1995. Myself and Marcos, my supervisor agreed, we'd be happy just seeing Jimmy Page hold a guitar on stage with Robert Plant. Unledded had kept our expectations low to moderate. Boy was I surprised how good the Garden shows were. I would have taken anythng. Oh yeah and #freedom. Say what you want, when you want.
