  1. The 72 show will be great if the recording is more than listenable.
  2. In stark contrast to Zeppelin's 50th check out what King Crimson is doing for theirs KING CRIMSON - CELEBRATING 50 YEARS Posted by Sid Smith on Jan 13, 2019 On the evening of Monday January 13th, 1969, King Crimson formally began rehearsals in the basement of the Fulham Palace Road Cafe. After hauling their equipment down the stairs into their cramped rehearsal room Greg Lake, Ian McDonald, Michael Giles, Robert Fripp plugged in their instruments, and with Peter Sinfield operating lights and sound, played and worked on material for the next hour and a half. By July of that year, the band was performing in Hyde Park on the same bill as The Rolling Stones to an audience of up to 500,000 people. By October, the debut album: “In the Court of the Crimson King” was in the Top 5 of the UK album charts, shortly followed by a top 30 position in the US album charts and a No 1 slot – replacing Abbey Road – in the Japanese international chart.

  3. I think I mentioned Tattoo you as a joke, isn't a great album at all. I bought it when it came out and the only track I liked was neighbors. I don't know why I didn't elaborate a bit more. Tattoo you doesn't even come close to the influences on PG or the visceral emotions of Presence

    Why did they not play at woodstock

    Woodstock was nothing until after it happened, until then, it was just another festival so there would be no impetus on Grants part to rearrange their tour schedule to play there.

    Original Celebration Day on TSRTS Cassette

    Could it be that Jimmy wanted to give us 3 solos for that song and the only way to do it was to alter future releases?

    Best Jimmy Page Impersonator EVER! - Jimmy Sakurai

    Sorry but I disagree. It's like watching a bad drag queen. IMHO all he does is ape Led Zeppelin. He may resemble Jimmy but it's in appearance only. There is no feeling in his guitar playing that comes anywhere near to what Jimmy actually sounds like. Somebody posted an audio cut of him jamming and tried to pass it off as an unheard jam by Zeppelin. As soon as I heard it I knew it wasn't Jimmy or Zeppelin in general, turns out it was this guy. Couple others got it too. If you want to listen to Guitarists who know Jimmy check out Blue Congo playing Dazed and Confused on his ACOUSTIC GUITAR! He plays it mostly from his slant but at the end, he adds a couple licks that you can hear Jimmy Play live and he plays them correctly and if you are as intimately familiar with Zeppelin's live repertoire as I am you will also feel it. He gets Jimmy. Then head over to porgie's vids where he and his mates recreate Zeppelin's studio work. They are as close to Zeppelin as you can get without being them and I can feel it in my bones when I watch their vids. These guys are on another level when compared to sakurai. He's all pride pomp and circumstance with nothing behind the veil. TMSAISTI. p.s. My opinion is based on 35 years of obsessive listening to Live Zeppelin.
