  1. Well... Whenever the band are playing at full pelt the cymbals drop out slightly and the track gets muddy... It sounds like a compression issue... I've tried it on 2 machines and it's the same on both. The audio only mp3 is fine (well as fine as MP3's are!).
  2. Has anyone else downloaded this? I had to report it to Apple as the soundtrack is distorted. They refunded me and have reported the issue. The Audio Only version is fine but the sound on the film on iTunes (at least on my download) is inferior...
  3. Whilst trying to forge a career in the music business over the years I was lucky enough to meet the original 3 members of LZ. In 1993 I supported Robert Plant twice. They were secret gigs and took place in The Kings Head pub in London. I think I got picked to do it because I was a solo guitarist and therefore wouldn't take up much space! also I played alot of blues stuff and there weren't that many guys my age (21 at the time) who played that sort of stuff... Anyway suffice to say Robert was a gentleman and very gracious to me. Even going so far as to listen to my set (I could see him)and tell me how much he enjoyed it (the charmer). One of his guitarists at the time was Frankie Dunnery who was leaving at some point and told me to meet Robert's management in order so that I could arrange an audition. I was duly told to get a demo tape to them and was told to learn a handful of songs from Fate Of Nations and a couple of Zeppelin tracks (I think one of them was Trampled Underfoot)... Anyhow I did all my homework and about a week after I handed the tape in I was told that the tour wasn't going to go on longer than they thought as Robert was going to get back with Jimmy!! At least I lost the gig to a good guitarist haha... Anyhow I then met Jimmy when they were rehearsing for the Unledded tour and he was a gent too...and then one day I was walking down Dean Street in Soho, London and... noticed a bloke on the other side of the road staring at me. I looked back as if to say "what's your problem" and he looked away after a few seconds.. I then realised it was JPJ!! I went over and asked him (I was now behind him) "Excuse me are you John Paul Jones". He stopped looked at me (as if he thought he knew me.. which is what it was obviously about when he was on the other side of the road.. and said "yes". I immediately shook his hand and said that i wanted to thank him for all the years of joy he had given me. His response was to look like I had made his year!! haha. he probably doesn't get recognised that often. What a lovely man... Anyhow... now I manage The Blockheads (as in Ian Dury) and sometimes play with them so I ended up in this crazy business after all... Lee
