  1. Been reading this new Mojo which is good overall. New interviews with the three members. Here's an excerpt in case you're wondering about 'future' things 😕
  2. You're hearing it wrong. He's saying "Ain't no need to hide" at 10:11.
  3. Great pics. Was video permitted? --------------- https://www.nme.com/news/music/jimmy-page-led-zeppelin-reunion-phil-collins-drums-mistake-live-aid-3070870 Jimmy Page says it was a mistake to hire Phil Collins for Led Zeppelin’s Live Aid reunion "We were in real trouble" By Tom Skinner 14th October 2021 Jimmy Page has said that it was a mistake to enlist Phil Collins to fill in on drums for Led Zeppelin at Live Aid. Collins and drummer Paul Martinez both played live with the reunited Led Zep – Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones – at the legendary 1985 concert, as did bassist Tony Thompson. Speaking in a new interview with The Times and The Sunday Times, Page admitted it was “not very clever” to reform the band, who had split in 1980 following the death of their drummer John Bonham. “The drummer couldn’t get the beginning of ‘Rock And Roll’,” Page explained about Live Aid. “So we were in real trouble with that.” He also told The Times that Led Zeppelin had less than two hours to rehearse for their three-song set, which included the classics ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and ‘Stairway To Heaven’. Led Zeppelin went on to reunite again in 2007 for a performance at The O2 in London. Recalling how nervous he felt ahead of the concert, Page told The Times: “A lot more could go wrong. I didn’t want to be the one making the mistake.” Phil Collins reflected on the disastrous Live Aid show during an interview last year, explaining: “If I could have walked off, I would have done, ’cause I wasn’t needed and I felt like a spare part.” The majority of the Genesis musician’s preparation for the concert came from listening to Led Zeppelin’s tracks on the flight to Philadelphia. “I didn’t rehearse when I got there, but I listened to ‘Stairway To Heaven’ on Concorde,” he said. “I arrived and went to the caravans, and Robert said: ‘Jimmy Page is belligerent’.”
  4. Weird that the Youtube link on Robert's channel is removed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM40mlXWOSM Nevermind working again now!
  5. That was from "It Might Get Loud" doc, wasn't it?
  6. A guide for all official merchandise post-1980 would be interesting. I was looking up Mythgem on google and shows it's a Led Zeppelin owned corporation. Bill Graham would only have been granted a licence for a certain time to produce merchandise through Winterland, which I'm sure is how it works to this day with current licensee companies.
  7. I have an mp3 of this and just sent you a wetransfer link. No $ required, enjoy!

JP's post: https://www.instagram.com/p/CTm_4bTjVCR/ news report- https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/jimmy-page-says-official-led-zeppelin-documentary-has-clearly-touched-the-hearts-of-both-audience-and-critics-alike/ JIMMY PAGE Says Official LED ZEPPELIN Documentary Has 'Clearly Touched The Hearts Of Both Audience And Critics Alike' The official LED ZEPPELIN documentary "Becoming Led Zeppelin" debuted last Saturday (September 4) at the Venice International Film Festival in Italy. Directed by Bernard MacMahon, the film documents the legendary rockers' "meteoric rise to stardom." LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page, who premiered the documentary at the event, took to his social media earlier today (Thursday, September 9) to write: "I recently returned from the Venice Film Festival where the world premiere of 'Becoming Led Zeppelin' was unveiled. With Bernard MacMahon (the director), Allison McGourty (producer of the film) and accompanied by @scarlettzsabet, we were about to feel the feedback of the documentary. "The first run was 2pm on Saturday 4th September. The full capacity audience were already in the venue (COVID restrictions observed) before we were due to enter and welcome the audience and to say hello. There was a 10 minute standing ovation before a word was said. The audience bestowed such affection before the viewing it was quite overwhelming. As the film progressed the enthusiasm intensified and certain sequences were followed by applause. The audience were really connected and it was interesting to witness the communication and enthusiasm the event and the film were generating. After the closing credits, the audience rose to their feet and gave us another standing ovation, a thank you that I can't convey in words, but boy did I feel it. "That evening there was to be a midnight showing and I wanted to attend that as well. Bernard and I introduced the film to another enthusiastic audience and another standing ovation. It was so energising to feel the love, joy and anticipation from the public. The world press from the next couple of days was equally encouraging. They had had a private viewing so the questions were totally relative to the film documentary. The film had clearly touched the hearts of both audience and critics alike. "Thank you to the Venice Film Festival. Thank you to the fans. Thanks to you for your loyal support through the years. "Just now awaiting the announcement for the official release of the film and the day we can all see 'Becoming Led Zeppelin'." "Becoming Led Zeppelin" features new interviews with Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, as well as rare archival interviews with the late drummer John Bonham. It marks the first time members of LED ZEPPELIN have participated in a documentary about the group. MacMahon said in a press release: "With 'Becoming Led Zeppelin' my goal was to make a documentary that looks and feels like a musical. I wanted to weave together the four diverse stories of the band members before and after they formed their group with large sections of their story advanced using only music and imagery and to contextualize the music with the locations where it was created and the world events that inspired it. I used only original prints and negatives, with over 70,000 frames of footage manually restored, and devised fantasia sequences, inspired by 'Singin' In The Rain', layering unseen performance footage with montages of posters, tickets and travel to create a visual sense of the freneticism of their early career." MacMahon previously directed the Emmy-nominated music documentary series "American Epic" about the early American roots music recordings of the 1920s. Page praised the film back in 2019, saying: "When I saw everything Bernard had done both visually and sonically on the remarkable achievement that is 'American Epic', I knew he would be qualified to tell our story." Plant added: "Seeing Will Shade and so many other important early American musicians brought to life on the big screen in 'American Epic' inspired me to contribute to a very interesting and exciting story." Jones stated: "The time was right for us to tell our own story for the first time in our own words, and I think that this film will really bring this story to life." An official LED ZEPPELIN book, "Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin", came out in October 2018.
  9. I haven't seen the movie but I don't think that's true. At the very least, the Rolling Stone review mentions Bath (probably '69) which is new to 99.999% of us and the director has mentioned finding alternate unseen reels of some of the footage we do know exists.
