  1. Funny how Matt Everitt was in a band called Menswear and now he's interviewing Percy. "did you ever play Madison Square Garden son?" "er no I was in Menswear" (kidding, I know Plant would never ask something like that!)
  2. It seems a distinctly odd choice, especially given how puffy Page looked at Atlantic 40th compared to his prime. Why not a stock 70s Earls Court type shot?
  3. Redditch town centre. Lovely of Percy to put that pic up, keeps perspective.
  4. This article is by Dave Lewis and relates to a new collection by Jorgen Angel "Led Zeppelin 1968-70" out 28 May. Irritatingly the article only includes the already seen photos from the book, but I guess it's a typical publisher's tease. Jorgen says thre Engish language edition will have 16 extra pages compared to non English, so presumably that's where any extra / unseen will be. Think I know what'll I be getting for my birthday at the end of the month.
  5. Some have. Whenever there's a book or previous documentary Benji leFevre is there. He's a funny interviewee and can actually remember stuff, so I suspect whoever's writing / filming tend to seek him out for that reason. Despite him being pretty open about rock and roll behaviour I gather him and Plant are still on friendly terms. And Henry "the Horse" Smith, Dave Northover & Dennis Sheehan are extensively quoted in Barney Hoskyns' Zep book. For the others who haven't, it may be as simple as loyalty even after all these years. Or they can't remember anything!
  6. You missed "light and shade", "distance miking" and "inventing backwards echo". HOUSE!!
  7. If it were genuinely nothing new, I doubt Plant or JPJ would get involved.
  8. There's nothing wrong with Page's memory. Like Spinal Tap's appeal, it's just become more selective.
  9. Sounds really promising! I guess they'll be interviewed separately, not together?
  10. Those ladies of Zepworld have just posted some instructional vids on YT, thought you'd all be interested. "Jimmy Page" on guitar "Robert Plant" on vox. and "John Bonham" behind the kit Not sure where Jonesy is but I'm sure more will be added soon!
  11. Seriously? Jim Matzorkis said he only found the strength to escape the trailer when he realised Bindon was going to pull one of his eyes out. Let's not let being fans of the band obscure our view of what was a disgraceful act of violence. And an act of stupidity taking Bindon on tour in the first place. Even Cole thought it was a bad idea.
  12. Bonzo didn't. Grant & Bindon did. Despite the punishment he's given himself down the years, I wouldn't be so sure. His mother lived into her 90s, so Page has good genes. Same as Keef!
  13. I prefered the previous bass player. That said, a Zep reunion with Page on rhythm & Gretchen on lead guitar would be a lot of fun! 😜
  14. Tim Rose on the same bill? Wonder if that's where he saw Bonzo and thought "now, he'd be a good drummer to take out on the road"....
  15. Yeah, Wall is to rock writing what Rob Liefeld is to comic art, or Herman Tilke to designing motor racing circuits. He's terrible, but he keeps getting commissioned.
  16. Fat chance. I don't believe he'd ever do that, just too secretive.
  17. Three thoughts: that 5 string bass is a gorgeous looking instrument Mr "Alternative 90s SuperCool" Thurston Moore now looks like a middle aged computer games store employee. Jonesy's playing music he enjoys, with people he likes. Him and Plant are showing their eclecticism while Page (so musically eclectic in Zeppelin's heyday) is ironically stuck in a classic rock timewarp.
  18. I thought it was odd when Mick Wall claimed Page was now a mad keen Chelsea FC fan (and that he did nothing nowadays but sit around watching football on tv) when he'd previously shown zero interest in the game.
  19. Just interested, is this summat you've specifically heard or speculation? I know Page had nerves before going on, even in Zeppelin days, but this is the first I've heard of it being that bad. Typical of such a perfectionist though. Edit: Janine Safer (press wrangler on the '77 tour) said that one of her friends in PR or similar was working on the 95 P&P tour and "it was as much as she could do to stop them clawing each others eyes out".
  20. That'd sound even better and funnier in Noddy Holder's voice.
  21. Mac Poole. He said Bonzo told him "I couldn't do anything man, Jimmy wanted it kept simple".
  22. 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!
