  1. thanks for the help on this one. I can't the Japan scenery film to run and the link to the Live Japan boot isn't active. If I had to pick one and only one representation of the best LZ could be live, Japan 1971 is it.
  2. Aynsly Dunbar plays wickedly on the last good Frank Zappa and the Mother of Inventions record, live at the Filmore 1971. well.. some of it is good.. the intro... Peaches..
  3. The rule must have been "zero realism" which Tony Franklin blows by playing a couple of bass notes that are in sync with the studio recording. I think SG is the track that brought the most independent ears along, people that would be trending towards Sonic Y and deeper cuts of rock strata a couple of years later. Love Jimmy, love being on the inside of the experience.. but...this video is just ridiculous. They like to have fun I suppose.
  4. Seems to indicate Cadillac was on the session for the first album, not the 2nd, even tho' it sounds like the Mean Business production. Overall I prefer the sonic aura of the first LP, but Cadillac is my fav Firm song and my fav Page song from the 80s. I'm loving the "on this day", as if I needed any more conviction that Jimmy Page is the man. Turning out to be a rich cache of music history. Did you catch the Joe Cocker day? Jimmy had 2 songs up, the 2nd of which had this hot lick that I was sure The Blues Magoos of NYC had invented on their "We ain't got nothin' yet" mid 60s monster hit single. Must have passed for a serious air guitar moment, and what do you know, Mr Page got there first.. just like he did with Nico, Alexis K, etc. He will show us this again and again with "on this day", a fantastic addition to my internet life.
  5. wow. just wow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlS3j-9Y18s&feature=share
  6. he looks like he may be reading Knebworth reviews.. the timing is right. His face looks a little malnourished in every summer 79 shot I've seen, not a picture of health at this point his career. I wonder if the acoustic guitar clip is also from 1979. I can't hear any clues in the playing.
  7. Holy Cr@p, this GTBT operner from the o2 is freeking awesome. YARRRrrrrghhhh! best o2 GTBT so far... i think.
  8. ahh. I lose my bit about Phul Colons and his album Ass Value I guess. Not funi any more. Get as well as you can Phil. edited: so as not to forget "In the derriere tonight"
  9. I'd like to shine a light on "Work Progress 12-10-2007" as a utoob search term. This is a fairly new version, sounds great on headphones, excellent camera editing. I'd post a link, but the poster didn't put the bands name which is his way of saying 'Don't post links' as far as I'm concerned.
  10. Uh oh. Zeppelin disappointments don't feel good. Hope his emotional steel is up to strength. Jimmy can talk to Robert through the press when they are out of phase, but can Jason talk to the lads? I haven't forgotten about Black Country, even though, just like I was afraid of, Dream Theater has come to call. That's what happens when you jam with Joe Satriani.
  11. Sounds like you haven't seen the side split-tingly funny episode where Otto the metal head school bus driver drives the school bus into the ocean. He only has enough air to say one last thing. With is last breath he says "Zeppelin Rules". I was watching with friends that were well aware of my strange LZ obsession, and it was like I was Otto and he was me. If I could die from laughing, that would have done it. But today's LZ in unrelated places is on the Colbert Report. I found a link to the excerpt here The Zep mention is about half-way through a five minute clip. Funny how Zep has gone so mainstream. Seems like the "shark episode" is Americana now. I never thought Colbert would have much to say 'bout that.
  12. I was wondering about the guitar and bass on the video clip that is the official Jason Bonham website splash page. Is that Bonamassa Hughs? Sounding pretty good.
  13. oh brother. I thought he was joining an original new British band. This is moving in the wrong direction. I want to see Jason make new drum patterns for new music. I already know about Zeppelin. Ugh. I hope his handlers keep him out of LA. Just Say No to Camp Freddy!
  14. So he played the Paul on this tour. Man. I dreamed at night about the Paul in 1984, and thought Jimmy was done with blazing leads forever. To me, the brown tele represented weakness, remorseful sloppy solos with no mids or bottom tonality. I learned tp appreciate the B string bender vocabulary years after he stopped using it. Then I would listen to my 7" of "Together" when no roomates were around to catch me in my moment of sap. Back in the day I would have killed to see Page unleash the Paul. I bought every mag that carried a pic of Live-Aid Page w/Paul.
