  3. Happy 66th and look forward to hearing you play on Apr 17th in Beijing www.jimmypageonline.com/concert dates
  4. Happy 64th Birthday and glad to see you out there having fun again
  5. Below is an excerpt from an article in Sunday's Dallas Morning News commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Texas Pop Festival in Lewisville, Texas. I believe the promoter is referring to Richard Cole because I don't believe anyone would be stupid enough to try flipping a car with Peter Grant in it! Led Zeppelin gets the news Even among the stellar lineup at the Lewisville pop festival, none was hotter in the summer of '69 than Led Zeppelin. So when the band came to perform at the Fair Park Coliseum on Aug. 4, three weeks before the festival, Angus Wynne III and his partners saw a chance for some publicity. "We found their road manager, and we said we wanted to make sure the band recognized the festival from the stage," Wynne said. "And he said, 'Well, the fellows think they're going to be on vacation then. They don't know about it.' "The band gets on stage, and after a couple of songs, Robert Plant says, 'Anyone heard of the Texas International Pop Festival? We got into town today and saw the posters with our name on them. We've never heard of it. It's a classic ripoff, and if you have tickets, you need to get your money back.' " Furious, the producers found the road manager locked inside a limousine. They pounded on the windows and almost tipped the car over before the manager emerged. "He ran out there and he pulls Plant over to the side and whispers in his ear," Wynne said. "Then Plant grabs him by the lapels and starts shaking him. "At the end of the song, Plant goes to the microphone and says, 'Yeah, we're going to play [at the festival]. Our weasel road manager just told us.' "
  6. Happy Belated Birthday to the MAN!!! Enjoy your break from touring and hope you're back soon
  7. My heart skipped a beat because I thought you meant JOHN PAUL Jones.
  8. Thank you for posting the trailer - can't wait to see this
  9. Anyone else catch his performance? (Yes, I admit that I watch American Idol LOL) Pretty damn impressive and he hit all the notes. Surprised because I didn't think the Zeppelin catalog was available for use by Idol.
  10. Thank you very much for posting that link
  11. Happy Birthday JPJ - can never thank you enough for that beautiful piece of music known as No Quarter Keep on rockin' in 2009!
  12. Thanks for the expert breakdown of which songs were tuned down. IMO, it worked on most of the songs because it gave them a new feel, making them sound more sinister and dark. They did what they had to do for Robert's voice and I don't give a spit about Jack Bruce's criticism
  13. Took a quick look in the different forums and didn't see this mentioned anywhere so my apologies if someone brought this up already. There is a special on VH1 Classic titled "Led Zeppelin: Live". It airs tonight and I think it's being re-aired over the weekend. No specifics of what it is - likely clips that most of us have already seen before.
  14. I bet they were off stage getting blow jobs LOL
  15. Just jumped on to see if there was any news. Read the first six pages then skipped to the end. All I know from being on this board for awhile is that when SteveAJones comments, he is usually on the money. I'll agree with those who have the opinion that a tour with a replacement lead singer would be no good. Not Led Zep without the MAN! Wonder if they've considered touring without a singer? We fans could just sing the lyrics
  16. Can't believe that I didn't know today was the big 6-0. Congrats and keep doing whatever makes you happy because you've given us so much already.
  17. Not even close for me, the 9-19-70 MSG Evening Show - they were on fire!
  18. One of the best recent bootleg discoveries - very good recording and a rare playing of HMMT.
  19. Thanks for posting and learned some things about JPJ that I didn't know before.
  20. 9-19-70 MSG evening show - they were on fire that last night of their 1970 tour 6-19-72 Seattle - sounds like it was a wild night 5-4-73 Atlanta - first playing of No Quarter live, my favorite song
  21. I know there are threads on this topic from time to time and it's something that I'll think about sometimes as I'm listening to my bootlegs. IMO, Jimmy and Bonzo would have wound up in rehab, Robert would have done a solo album while the guys were getting cleaned up, and Jonesy probably would have done some producing. Think they might have gotten back together for an album and world tour around 1984-1985. Eventually, I think they would have drifted apart as Robert discovered how much he liked to be out from under Jimmy's thumb and Bonzo and Jonesy were enjoying their family time more and more. Think they would have stayed together in name but never again do as much as they did in the 1970s.
  22. Great thread - anytime that No Quarter is discussed, I'm in First song that I fell in love with when I heard the TSRTS for the first time on tape in 1986. Then the internet came along and I think I have every recorded version of No Quarter. I don't have any specific show but I tend to prefer 1975, then 1973, then 1977 (not a fan of the Knebworth version). Just hearing Jonesy, Bonzo, and Jimmy jamming together in the middle portions is always amazing to me.
  23. I'm at the tail end of the spectrum at 39 but I never saw them live as I was only 9 in 1977 and didn't really know who they were until I was in high school - used to get them confused with Def Leppard LOL I think some friends had played a few songs for me in high school but don't remember for sure. I bought the double cassette of The Song Remains The Same in 1986 and it was just unbelievable and there was no turning back. I used to listen to a local Zep radio show out of Akron, Ohio in the late 80s just to record whatever bootlegs he might play that night. Then the Internet came along and now I have a copy of every show ever recorded and listen to Zep everyday.
  24. Two peaks: European tour in early 1973 and then the Earls Court shows in 1975.
