  1. I'd love to agree with this, but the state they were in I think the shows would've been a trainwreck wherever they played. Page was so horribly thin he looked like a gentle breeze would blow him over. I can't imagine them rising to any occasion in 1981.
  2. I still can't believe the '77 one is missing. I posted on another thread: The world's biggest band start their first tour for more than 2 years and nobody taped it?!! It must be out there.
  3. Unbelievably good! Always had a soft spot for this riff, and Bonzo's tempo is perfect for meaty fills.
  4. Don't think Bonzo had much of a rest. According to Dave Pegg, they partied so hard after the Troubadour gig Bonzo missed his first flight to Hawaii.
  5. The drums on this are The Crunge, with half a bar taken out The shortened Crunge beat also appears on this
  6. Jimmy doesn't want "everything" to be covered. I doubt he'd ever endorse a warts and all doco.
  7. Suspect Plant will be carried offstage when it gets to his last gig. He lives to and loves to perform I think.
  8. Given how grouchy he sometimes gets in interviews, the prospect of Page being the interviewer for once will be interesting.
  9. There'll be a bloke banging a trash can except it'll be the beat to When the Levee Breaks.
  10. The roadie behind the drum riser looks a bit like Jeff Beck
  11. Given Page's extensive collecting habit, I'd hazard he owned a copy of this book (maybe a reprint) and thought it'd look cool & mysterious on the sleeve. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Merchant's_Tale The tale of the merchant has a main character called Januarie (month of Page's birth!). The merchant's tale is part of "fragment 4" of the overall story.
  12. Good example of this is the isolated bass tracks available on YouTube. Duran Duran's Rio (great bassline whatever you think of the band) has several small mistakes, including one where John Taylor hits the open (low) E string too hard and it goes sharp. Can you hear it if you really listen closely? Yes. Does it detract from a casual listen of great pop song? Absolutely not. Jimmy's sloppiness is similar. It does happen surprisingly often. He even muffs the opening of the Whole Lotta Love riff when he plays it for the Edge & Jack White on It Might Get Loud. But he's still Jimmy Page, playing one of the all time great riffs.
