So on June 8 they voted 9-2 to cancel the city’s next big rock show, Led Zeppelin at the Coliseum. Artist Kerry Waghorn had done a po
  6. https://www.johnpauljones.com/bio/ After an hour-long rehearsal earlier in the day, I performed with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Phil Collins and Tony Thompson at Philadelphia’s JFK Stadium in support of “Live Aid” charity event.
  7. It was aired at the time on radio, slated for an official promo LP release, but was eventually shelved.
  8. MSG 73 used the KT88 mod. I have an excellent repro of it from Royal Amps. http://www.royalamps.com/specs.html They offer it in 100w or 50w: "MSG 100" and "MSG 50" models.
  9. Fun to see the spooky kid outside the Laugardalsholl Hall in colour, lol. So far, Iceland footage seemed to work the best. The live clip looks incredible too, down to the blue sky peeking in the windows.
  10. I've been playing around with A.I. colourizing software on some black & white Zeppelin clips. Sometimes the results are impressive. It seems to work best on natural settings like outdoors. some mp4 clips: Danish TV '69, Sweden TV 69, Iceland 70, BBC 70 interview, Amsterdam 72: danishtv_sams-colourtest.mp4 1969-swedentv-samscolourtest.mp4 1970-iceland-samscolourtest.mp4 1970-RPJB-interview-samscolourtest.mp4 1972-amsterdam-samscolourtest.mp4

  12. I think all the bashing should stop. Thanks.
  13. Led Zeppelin has partnered with YouTube for an exclusive streaming event of 'Celebration Day', the concert film chronicling the band’s historic live performance from 2007. Celebration Day will premiere this Saturday, May 30, at 8pm UK / 3pm ET / 12pm PT, on the Official Led Zeppelin YouTube channel. Follow this link for the event, and set a reminder:
  14. JPJ official Facebook: John Paul Jones Official Back in 1975, when Led Zeppelin were at the top of their game, Etta James was due to perform at Montreux Jazz Festival. She needed a bass player, and John was asked if he could step in. He did, and this is what happened... Just one of the highlights that can be found in the bio section of JPJ’s new site http://www.johnpauljones.com
  15. There was another actor named "Peter Grant" so some of the listings attributed to our PG are incorrect. I don't think he was in Alias John Preston.
  16. New official John Paul Jones site now up: www.johnpauljones.com
