    Pontiac 1977 - New Photos

    A set of new photos from a fan at the Pontiac Silverdome April 30, 1977 (most of these shared here for the first time). There's some interesting pics, including an awesome rear-stage photograph of the whole stadium before the show and a couple of teasers showing the video camera in front of the stage.... http://www.ledzeppelin.com/show/april-30-1977

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    50 years ago this week, John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant convened in Olympic Studios in London to begin recording their debut album as Led Zeppelin. To celebrate this historic golden anniversary, the band have unveiled three new digital-only releases today on all digital download and streaming platforms.

  3. Here are some never-before-seen fan photos from Led Zeppelin's legendary Carnegie Hall (October 17, 1969) appearance. A group of 15 year-old fans captured their experience at the 8:30pm (early show) from the 10th row. They describe a lack of security, except for Carnegie Hall ushers and were free to venture up to the front of the stage for a few pics as well. Amazingly, these photos also reveal Jimmy Page's first photographed live use of his Black Beauty Les Paul during Led Zeppelin and confirms it was brought to North America for this fall 1969 tour. http://www.ledzeppelin.com/show/october-17-1969
  4. By Feyyaz Ustaer | December 11, 2018 In a recent article published by Music Radar, Rush frontman and bassist Geddy Lee has shared his favorite bass guitarists. He also revealed his thoughts about Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. Here’s the statement: “What a complete musician. He began as keyboard player before picking up the bass. Even before Led Zep, he was one of the most popular studio musicians in London at that time. You’re talking about the London sound! He played on all those Mickie Most records and was an arranger as well. His role in Zeppelin was a lot more profound that people credit him with. He could play keys, had an ear for arrangements and wrote great bass parts – just listen to what he does on What Is And What Should Never Be. Full props to John Paul Jones for contributing to my book. We had met before – he’s such a lovely and easy guy to talk to. He made it easy for me as an interviewer; I was on the other side of the table, which was a new gig for me! He has revealed the untold story about him and said: He has such amazing stories. I was looking for people that could light on the period of time and were also collectors. I didn’t just pick great bass players, because that’s a list that never ends. That day when I interviewed him – here in London about a year ago – he sat there fiddling around while we got ready. He played Heartbreaker and everyone in the room stopped talking and moving. It was all about one man on his ’62 Jazz Bass.” https://metalheadzone.com/rush-frontman-reveals-the-untold-story-about-led-zeppelin-bassist-john-paul-jones/

    JPJ w/ Etta James - Montreux 1975

    RP and JP in Montreux in July 1975 - pics with Keith Emerson and Rory Gallagher:
  11. John Paul Jones performing with Etta James in Montreux - July 1975. (Released on video a few years ago) Quote from the Etta James' guitarist, Brian Ray: "After the show we went backstage to hang and I was looking for the Zep guys because as a young lad on my first trip to Europe with Etta James at the 1975 Montreux Jazz Festival , John Paul Jones was set to play bass for Etta at the fest.. Me, skinny little 19 year old kid with blond hair halfway down my back was the bandleader, teaching Zep's bassist Etta's songs.. Well, at the end of our first rehearsal, who walks in but Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.. !! Page pulled me aside and asked to play my '57 Les Paul and told me he thought he had met me in a past life [wow!!].. Then they invited me to dinner, Racqlette in a chalet in the Alps.. with Led friggin' Zep!! All this was made better when 2 of my friends from LA had witnessed the show there and came back to LA to tell the stories for me." http://www.eagle-rock.com/product/live-at-montreux-1975-1993/

Thurston's ground-breaking use of extended techniques as guitarist in Sonic Youth, the most enduring of America's experimental rock bands, is matched here by the extraordinary dexterity of improvising drummer Steve, collaborator of choice of countless free jazz iconoclasts including Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee and Matthew Shipp. The three come together for an unforgettable evening to raise funds for Resonance FM - the most inventive radio station in the world.

    Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters Secret Solstice Festival Engjavegur 7, 104 Reykjavík, Iceland https://secretsolstice.is/ 2018 marked 50 years since Led Zeppelin released their iconic debut album “Led Zeppelin I”. It is no exaggeration claiming that rock has never been the same again. In a positive sense, of course. Led Zeppelin moved boundaries, broke new ground and always went their own ways, something Robert Plant has continued doing to this very day. Last year Plant released his 11th solo album, the critically acclaimed, «Carry Fire». American Songwriter Magazine had the following to say about the album: «Plant continues down his remarkably innovative path on the combustible “Carry Fire”, further expanding an already eclectic, forward-thinking solo career and creating an artistic, often edgy persona largely removed from past glories many younger fans may not even be familiar with. «New music has always been the driving force in Plant’s career. Whether it’s writing new material, experimenting with different musical directions, finding new partners – such as his very successful collaboration with Alison Krauss, or dressing up old songs in new clothes. Plant’s strength has always been his enthusiasm and musical precision. There’s always a underlying curiosity there that pushes him forward, something that gives his concerts this tangible nerve and a rush of excitement. The Sensational Space Shifters are Robert Plant’s long time collaborators Justin Adams (guitars), Liam «Skin» Tyson (guitars), John Baggot (keyboards), Dave Smith (drums), Billy Fuller (bass) and new member, violinist Seth Lakeman, who himself has an impressive solo career.Knowing Robert Plant, we’re confident that he has lots of surprises in store, both when it comes to old and new material. We are very much looking forward to welcome one of the biggest, most important and recognizable voices in the history of rock.

    Whole lotta love-single

    It's this release from France: https://www.discogs.com/Led-Zeppelin-Whole-Lotta-Love/release/6531267 You're missing the picture sleeve and it looks like poor/good condition with writing on the label, so not worth much at all unfortunately.

TeamRock Chief Executive Billy Anderson says: "TeamRock are delighted to have Jimmy Page and Joe Elliott joining us for what will be an incredible celebration of rock music. Rock musicians don't come much more 'classic' than Jimmy Page and to have him and Jeff Beck – two masters of their trade – together at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour in Tokyo will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. "And few bands have had the continued success that Def Leppard have enjoyed for so many years. Joe Elliott is an international rock icon and we are thrilled that he will be there with us in Japan. "When you consider the other artists lined up to appear, we can guarantee that the Ryogoku Kokugikan Stadium is set for a night that will live long in the memory of anyone lucky enough to be there." Jeff Beck will be given the highest honours on the night and he has announced that he will be assembling his own special band of musicians for the event. Beck’s band includes an all­-star cast featuring the brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots on guitar and bass. He will also be joined by guitarist Tommy Henriksen, of US-based supergroup Hollywood Vampires, and Korn drummer Ray Luzier.

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    "Led Zeppelin Day" proclaimed today in Denver on 50th anniversary of band's first US concert Fifty years ago today, December 26, 1968, Led Zeppelin played its first ever concert in the U.S., opening a show for Vanilla Fudge at Colorado’s Denver Auditorium Arena. In honor of the milestone, the Mayor’s Office of the City and County of Denver has proclaimed today “Led Zeppelin Day.” To commemorate the show, a plaque and a sculpture depicting Led Zeppelin’s Denver performance has been created by a local artist. It’ll be presented to the Colorado Music Hall of Fame at a special event next year and will go on permanent display at the institution in Morrison, Colorado. The event may also feature an exhibit of Led Zeppelin memorabilia and guest appearances. As the Hall of Fame’s executive director, Chris Daniels, explains, Vanilla Fudge had to convince local promoter Barry Fey to include Led Zeppelin on the concert bill by offering to pay half of Zeppelin’s requested $1,500 fee out of their own proceeds from the show. “Thanks to the mayor for helping to promote the long history of music in Colorado and to the family of Barry Fey, who had the vision to bring a young British band to Colorado for their debut concert in the U.S.,” Daniels says in a statement. According to LedZeppelin.com, the songs that the band played at its first U.S. show were “Train Kept a Rollin’,” “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “As Long as I Have You,” “Dazed and Confused,” “White Summer/Black Mountainside” and “How Many More Times.” Interestingly, the Denver concert also featured a set by Spirit, the band whose song “Taurus” Led Zeppelin has been accused of ripping off to create “Stairway to Heaven.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
