    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....
  5. So is this Priory of Brion 2? An actual new band, or a side project with the Space Shifters staying the main thing.

    Zeppelin the first 100 days, in the latest Rock Candy mag. Long article by Dave Lewis & Mike Tremaglio about the early shows. Ties in with their updated "show by show" book.

    Top 10 bootlegs

    Try this Peter Grant's line "they're not gonna get anyone heavier'n me, are they?" always cracks me up.

    Glasgow 12/3/72 - New Recording

    Exciting news! Be interesting to hear the quality. The existing boot of 4th December the following night is distant, possibly from "up in the rafters" as it were.
  9. Good post. The confluence of boomers having more and more money in their pocket, technology improving rapidly to make record production cheaper, and lots of creatively fertile artists will never happen again. Added to which, cinema was in a slump in terms of numbers of bums on seats (compared to the glory days of the 40s / 50s) and there was no Netflix etc. Rock and roll had the field to itself, and that'll never happen again either.

    The space before the live decline

    "Led Zeppelin will probably be forgotten"???!! What a great prediction. No wonder no one listens to critics.
  11. Not sure about this. On another music forum there was a bloke who'd found "top 10 of artists streamed in 2018 on Spotify" sort of list. Zeppelin were top 8 among non-solo acts, with about 10.5 million streams. Not bad for a band with only one full gig since July 1980.

    Don't know how Shirley metamorphosed into Molly.

    One week after Live Aid. Trying to hit those notes after 5 years can't have improved things for Percy's pipes.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    The obviously nonsense nature of the story and catty comment about Plant's beer belly, made me wonder exactly who the prankster was.... 😈

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    And yet it was picked up by the BBC & the Guardian! Sad comment on journalistic standards. I posted on Steve Hoffman that the story was obviously b*******s yet everyone there seemed to believe it was true.

    Led Zeppelin Photo Mysteries

    Dunno about that but the kid on the left of the pic was sired by some synthpop bloke in the 80s.
  17. Just a fun thread for riffs that make you think Zep but are actually other artists, to start off Lenny Kravitz - Rock and roll is dead Stone Roses - Driving South Think it's fair to say both were inspired by listening to Zeppelin....! Any others?

    Led Zeppelin Day

    Bonzo looks like Fu Manchu! Still, Page & Jones look right, and Plant looks about right....

    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    Just wanted to say Derek: Thanks for putting these here. It's easy to get cynical when you see the headline "new Zeppelin thing found" as there have been so many mislabellings, etc. E.g. the recent tape of Gladsaxe Sept '68. So it's been lovely to see a genuine one and those are great pics too.
  20. He said he still records on it, though doesn't play it onstage. And they must have played that many shows by '75, 150 in 1968/9 alone!😮
  21. JPJ, the musician's musician. I love the way he still has the '62 Jazz bass, that must have been thru what, 250+ shows?
  22. Wondered if anyone on here had seen this gem from 2007. Jonesy's work with a US folk / bluegrass band, and he makes a cameo as the piano player!

    Oblique reference to the Rain Song?!

    Newly found roll of Zeppelin photos - 06-10-77

    For 40 year old photos these are fantastic quality! Brilliant stuff Derek. Now, if previously unknown pictures can emerge after all this time, how about previously unknown recordings....
