  1. Didn’t expect to see Led Zeppelin group pic to appear on Michael Portillo’s GB Railway Journeys (Series 13 ep 6) 25/5/21. Something clicked when he said “ChiselhurstCaves”, but it wasn’t til his tour guide announced with much pride that many bands, from Lonnie Donagan Kinks Who Yardbirds culminating with a triumphant “ & Led Zeppelin celebrated the starting their new Record Label (Swansong) in the Seventies here” that I found myself looking at an early group (official) pic of our Favourite Band. Just love that they can still spring back into “normal” mainstream consciousness so easily.
  2. I remember touring Scotland (Birding)in the early 2000s & we stopped off at a small run down quayside in Caithness (North as you can go in Mainland Scotland) called Harrow Harbour. Much to my unbridled joy there was a tiny plaque saying “Opened by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page 30th April 1979”. Sadly the pic I took got lost together with the ancient Mobile I had at the time. Just amazed me he would have a plaque in such an obscure place. There is some info on the attached link, but I’d be interested on any other Pics/memories people may have. http://forum.caithness.org/archive/index.php/t-12976.html
  3. Peter Grant (talking with Mike Figgis & Malcom McClaren of all people) appeared briefly in the Ronnie wood documentary “Somebody up there likes me” on Sky Arts Channel 13th June, talking about Jeff Beck Group. Rod Stewart asked about PG said “f***king Bast**d ...I hated him....he was a bully” Grant talks about his early days as tour Manager with Gene Vincent & carrying a gun & scaring some would be “trouble makers” in Rotherham. Entertaining 5 mins or so...
  4. Yes. Sadly that seems to be a recurring theme with any “new” Zep stuff (Live Albums etc). I live in hope but not holding my breath anymore.
  5. Does anyone have any news on when it will go on release? Why the delay?
  6. Can’t stand the rag but a relative brought it to my attention so I googled it & it was good to read about times at Bron yr Aur. https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/11522841/fast-lane-led-zeppelin-back-to-nature/.
  7. Well I ain’t no monkey. Can’t climb no tree....
  8. My mistake the Stones do appear for 2 nano seconds in the early eighties.....
  9. Great to watch (esp the rise of Zep early 70s) but no Stones or U2 is a mystery...
  10. I found this sorting the Attic out. I remember being so proud the Band i worshipped we’re finally being heralded in a “Posh” Sunday Paper. The Oberver no less. (2nd Headline down...See pic) Although by this time they were at their juggernaut pomp with their fans, Parents of such would never have heard of them! The clever marketing catch phrase “bigger than the Beatles” (& not untrue!) got them real recognition outside Rock Circles.
  11. So there was a deliberate black out on news. No matter! Just fantastic that it’s up!
  12. What’s happening on the John Bonham Statue opening in Redditch?? It’s disappeared off the Led Zeppelin “Upcoming events” prominently featured on Twitter & weekly emails. Second time I’ve asked on here & no replies! Am I missing something........
  13. Is the John Bonham statue unveiling still going ahead 31st May?
  14. Trivia Question: Which Simpson’s Character refers to “Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin” (in S15 ep7)?
