  1. It is awesome but it is not me, but you probably knew that? But check this out. He even references Gallows Pole in this vid.
  2. I think that is one of the great things about Kashmir. To me, it does not need a guitar solo. In fact, in a studio version it might detract from the overall structure/composition.

  6. Way back in the 70s I read in an interview that Page liked Django. At the time I had never heard of Django. So I started looking for his records. So glad I did.
  7. Robert says "We got one more". Check Cool improvised intro riff. Check Spacey keyboards during theramin section. Check
