  1. No, I wasn’t suggesting he was singing that. Just pointing out he’d likely know phrases
  2. Plenty’s wife is of Indian / Asian heritage
  3. Did anyone take these from you? I’m in a similar situation with numerous mags I don’t know what to do with anymore
  4. I think what the recent ABBA new releases has shown us is that fans don’t really want new music from bands from such a long time ago. ABBA were probably one of the most wanted reunions with huge money offered but didn’t succumb. I may be a bit out of touch but it seems to me their new music made a big splash and then… not a lot. I doubt they will sell, or be streamed, anywhere near their original songs, even over the next twenty years What their fans really want is for them to play a few gigs so they can dance and sing along to Dancin Queen, and if they were at such an imagined gig, they probably wouldn’t want the new tunes, because they’re not the same. Fortunately ABBA are sensible enough to realise they can’t recreate those times and that’s why their legacy continues, because they haven’t cashed it in. Page & Plant wrote some new tunes back in 94 and 97(?) on the Clarksdale album and the few from the Unledded project. Same thing, we don’t hear anyone shouting for a continuation of those songs, or radios playing them. Folk just want what they know and like
  5. There were plenty of rumours of Planty playing at the General Wolfe, Coventry, but he definitely did play there once as I have a clipping from the next weeks local paper, and remember it happening well.However I didn’t keep the date of the report. Most of the rumours came to nought. I went along one night on one of those unsubstantiated rumoured nights
  6. On the old forum there was a list of all the bloopers, including; at the end of a solo in ten years gone you can hear Page pull the lead out his guitar in Misty mountain hop Jones plays a wrong note Squeaky bas pedal in SIBLY and another song (I forget which but it isn’t as noticeable) The phone in the ocean ( I don’t understand how anyone could miss it) In Kashmir traces of the original strings are still audible in a couple of places i can’t remember the rest
  7. i remember this well. i wasn't there, but at the time in the local paper (Coventry Evening Telegraph) the music column ran several "mystery guest at the Wolfe?' entries, which meant Planty. i went along following one of those tips to see the DTs who he was rumoured to be getting up to play with, but he didn't. didn't he play there twice in that period?
  8. Well done, thanks. Very interesting and it hardly suggests that an instrumental album from him now, when he’s old and out of practise, does it? just maybe after the O2 he may have sold more but that’s a long time ago (14 years?). At the last shows he has attended, he’s either not played at all (Japan) played backing only (Beck) or played but ducked out of a solo (that guitar players event, I forget where) He’s finished. Move on
  9. Millons? You at be right but I seriously doubt it. How many copies did he sell of his Outrider album I wonder. It hardly set the world alight did it. Do you play it much? I have no desire for an album from him. If he wants to fair enough, but I’m really not fussed, the world has moved on He could do a televised concert but I seriously doubt he ever would as he wouldn’t risk messing up again. He’d be more likely to play two or three and cobble something together from it, and that would involve a lot of practice and time and though I have no more certainty than you I’d wager a sum it will never happen
  10. I’m having that. Wise words indeed
  11. The stories behind the songs isn’t great really as many of their songs don’t have meanings as such and don’t have much depth. Some do obviously but many don't i think I’d suggest the Barney Hoskins book as the best all rounder
  12. Can someone give me an excerpt or a time link to a Mars section. There are many references to it on live versions but I’m not sure which section it relates to. Thanks
  13. Very interesting. I’ve never cared much for the recorders intro and much prefer the keyboard live version
