    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Everything about Robbie Williams makes me think that Bindon might have had his uses, after all...

    Saw UFO at Sheffield City Hall in June 1978. During the long solo in Rock Bottom, Mogg left the stage and Michael Schenker went to the front and centre, stood the Flying V upright on the stage, knelt down behind it and played the whole solo like that! I've never known if he always did that or if it was just that his guitar strap had broken and he was forced into it!

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Hilarious - UK construction hasn't involved digging with shovels for decades! I've been an archaeologist for 18 years and have worked on many sites where construction's been going on - and not once have I seen a groundworker use a shovel, other than to put cement and pebbles into a mixer. I have, however, had many of them come over to our trenches and stand there gawping at us shovelling, like it's some antiquated practice from the Dark Ages (sorry, Early Medieval, arf). Robbie will probably have to hire specialists who know how shovels work...

    Time to let Choronzon have a word with little Robbie... https://uk.yahoo.com/news/robbie-williams-gets-permission-underground-212000094.html

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Steve seems to have nailed the reasons why it hasn't gone the way people hoped it would. Sounds plausible to me. Anniversaries don't mean anything to me, so I've not been disappointed, but I can see why others might be.

    Led Zeppelin vs Deep Purple

    'Tommy Bolin can't play for shit!' Ah, come on, it was only a joke when Bonzo said it the first time...

    Walking Into Clarksdale - Rediscovered

    Exactly - a point that's usually overlooked. I'm no fan of Albini's (I'd say he actually ruined P.J. Harvey's Dry - the earlier Peel sessions versions of those songs sounded far better). Most Albini 'recordings' sound flat and lack dynamics and that's certainly the case with a lot of WIC, but Robert and Jimmy produced it and signed off on it - and Charlie Jones actually remixed some stuff for b-sides and those versions also sound flat and lifeless. There's more at fault with WIC than just Albini.

    "Okay" heard in Achilles?

    I've never heard the phone ring in The Ocean or the squeaky bass drum in SIBLY and I can't hear this either - sorry! I don't actually want to hear these things, though - once I hear that damn squeak, I'm sure I won't be able to UNhear it...
  9. 106. That's okay - I've felt about 110 for the last 25 years, so...

    The True King of Rock and Roll

    Hah, I read this thinking it was going to a Little Richard thread...
  11. Jimmy will probably want to spend three years bringing the quality of those 12-14 hours of footage up to date from 2003 standards first, though...
  12. And me. I was born in, like, 1804 or summat and I've only got computer and internet access at work, no smartphone, nowt. This is Yorkshire - it's like 1985 round ere...
