  1. Yep, the subtle differences of temperament are hard to predict. I think the "parking" bit is actually pretty quick witted, and it wouldn't have bothered me. I certainly don't think Plant intended any ill will. Like I mentioned, I feel like Plant was trying to convey that Jones would always be part of the circle, he just wan elsewhere at the moment. In hindsight, Jones (privately) felt cold-shouldered, and the quip hit the quick. (sounds like something Plant would say) Jones phone number jab at the HOF was probably good medicine for all of them.
  2. This topic has spun thru my head many times, too, but I always come back to the simplest explanation. Its just the way people are: prone to mistakes, slow to correct them, and awkward in execution. (Page/Plant) Further, people are usually easier to offend than we imagine, and slower to forgive than we hope. (Jones) When the whole Page/Plant thing got underway, those two would be anxious to get started, but wary about Jone's feelings. (FEELINGS? Oh, no.) So, they drag their feet, hoping to avoid the confrontation. If they call, it might get uncomfortable, emotional. No man wants to deal with that, particularly with a buddy...he'll understand, it'll be fine. It's amazing the things you can convince yourself of in order to get out of an unpleasant task. Then, equally amazing how simple it is to see you were wrong, in hindsight. Then, it the midst of everything, some reporter has to throw a wrench (spanner) in things. Quick, a joke! "He's parking the car." (See? We didn't forget him, we're still mate's, nothing to worry about) I'm certainly not above falling in to that bad decision. I'm also sure that had I been JPJ sitting at home watching my bandmates re-take the throne without me that I'd have been mad, hurt, and felt slighted and mistreated.
  3. Ho yeah! Work those out, and the whole album changes. By the way, I've no doubt Paul played the Radioactive bit, and couldn't care less. Paul is a good guitar player that has always been willing to let someone else take the spotlight. We all know that. Given Paul's record of innovation with guitar synth, etc, the Radioactive thing makes perfect sense.
