    New website/ live Zeppelin?

    I've wondered abut this since I saw the DVD. The stuff showing the crowds outside the venue / at the airport could be tv news, but the shot from the side of the stage? That has to be Super 8 from Richard Cole or someone similar. In fact, Cole's archive of photos and film must be untapped surely: most of the photos I've seen in recent books credited as "Richard Cole Collection" were previously unknown or unseen. You're not telling me there aren't tons more, and perhaps video too. Come on Ricardo, it's the 50th, do an exhibition or something!

    Yardbirds Live and Rare

    It was discussed over at the Steve Hoffman forums recently: it doesn't seem any different to the "Glimpses" release from years back. No different in terms of track listing anyway, not sure whether sound quality is better.
  3. I wondered for a while who the bloke is with the camera. He bears a remarkable resemblance to George Harrison, which means it surely can't be 1969. 😃

    Dragon Telecaster Re-created

    It kind of symbolises the 50th so far though.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    I think the prankster who posted this up is the same guy who concocted the ludicrous story about Williams "blasting Deep Purple at full volume" to wind Page up and "prancing around with a cushion up his jumper" that appeared in the papers last month.

    Nitpicking Page 1980

    For me there's a cut off around the collapse in Nuremberg. Before that, he's as good as he always was. After that, he seems to be phoning it in.

    The Crunge - Best Live Version

    Totally. The Crunge works far better as an instrumental.

    Glasgow 12/3/72 - New Recording

    I agree with those saying Plant's voice holds up well given it's Dec '72, a few months after the problems emerged in Japan. Bonzo is on one as well.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Notice how he says Peter Grant wasn't with him when they went to see Obs-tweedle in July '68, which contradicts most previous accounts (Wall, Salewicz etc) that say three of them went to the gig: him, Grant & Chris Dreja.

    Robert in conversation with Brian Johnson

    Pretty typical for a bloke his age wouldn't you think? He's put a bt of weight on, but he looks alright for near septuagenerian (sp?).

    Did Jimmy change his signature?

    That irritates me. Paul Rodgers wasn't "in" Queen. He played with two of the surviving members as "Queen + Paul Rodgers". Queen finished when Freddie Mercury died, like Zeppelin finished in 1980.

    Does Jimmy Still Play ?

    What was this? Are we talking "secret guitarist behind the curtain" sort of thing....
  13. So is this Priory of Brion 2? An actual new band, or a side project with the Space Shifters staying the main thing.
