  1. And another https://www.indiewire.com/2021/09/becoming-led-zeppelin-review-1234662180/
  2. Early review https://theplaylist.net/becoming-led-zeppelin-leadern-venice-review-20210904/ Unpositive, but sounds like it was written by someone it wasn't aimed at anyway.
  3. Odd that Jimmy correctly said the first two albums came out in 1969, then miscorrected himself to say 1970!
  4. It has to be an improvement on the Mick Wall book.
  5. With this and Saving Grace, I guess the Space Shifters are going to be kicking their heels for a while.
  6. http://www.thevinylguide.com/episodes/ep294-led-zeppelin-vinyl-interview-ross-halfin Podcast here with Ross Halfin about his upcoming Zeppelin vinyl book. (apols if it's already been posted on another thread) He says among many other things, that Page has tapes from both Tokyo shows and both Osaka '71 shows. (hat tip to one of the Zep threads on the Steve Hoffman Forum)
  7. Given what a huge star Robert was in 1985, it'd be odd if he hadn't been involved.
  8. Latest Rock Candy magazine, has Zeppelin at Knebworth. By Dave Lewis Latest Classic Rock has a thing on the making of the 4th Album. https://www.loudersound.com/news/50-years-on-the-ultimate-celebration-of-led-zeppelin-iv-only-in-classic-rock Bought the former but held off buying the latter as, being Classic Rock mag, I suspect the author of the piece is Mick Wall. No thanks.
  9. Hey Steve, be interested if you could shed any light on this. Years ago I commented on a thread on a Detective video on YouTube. Someone else responded last week claiming to be the bass player from Detective and that they had sorted out contractual probs with Swan Song on January 1st this year. So is Swan Song still a legal entity?! I'd assumed it had been wound up years ago. His exact words are as follows Jon Hyde and I are opening a new version of Detective. We, Detective, were given our full rights by Swan Song on Jan 1st. This year.

    Early Bonham Picture

    Mook, I have to ask, where did you find this??!
  11. Quite the alumni The Gods had in that era, Ken Hensley, Mick Taylor & Greg Lake.
  12. I suspect Jimmy had a big bag of riffs he'd been developing for a second solo record, and he fit them to various vocal melodies then Coverdale wrote the lyrics. I genuinely believe it was 50/50 rather than Coverdale driving it. Interesting that they're talking though, and recently. Come on Jimmy, here's your project for lockdown 2!
  13. This is a different interview. Doing phone interviews rather than face to face seems to have made Jimmy open up more, unless it's my imagination.
  14. Definitely buying this. Shindig has to be one of the most underrated / overlooked music mags out there. Lots of interesting psych bands and decent writing. Wonder if it's just a late career overview or if Jim McCarty has been interviewed?
  15. If someone showed you that recording anonymously and asked you to guess, I'd say 99% would guess Bonham. If that isn't him I'm a Dutchman.
