  1. That is a nice pic and thx for looking. The pic I saw once is unique cause both Gretzky and Page arrived at LA Forum that same week and the marquee 'welcomed' both on the same Forum parking lot signage. Wayne's first home game as a King was Oct 06 1988 (beat the Wings 8-2. Ouch) and Jimmy played on the 7th. Two of the "Greatest" played same venue on consecutive nights. I always wondered if Jimmy &band took in the game? It was first Kings home opener sell out in decades.
  2. Does anyone have a pic of the LA Forum marquee from the Outrider tour stop? I've seen it elsewhere, but not on LZ forum. thx, Otto
  3. 1. McCartney & Wings : Rock Show 2. Neil Young - Downtown 3. Beastie Boys: The New Style 4. Damn Yankees: Rock CIty 5.
  4. I am lucky to have grown up in Metro Detroit and I have older brothers who saw GFR live a few times locally, but not this show. They were the biggest band in Detroit at the time in terms of sold out shows and FM airplay. Kinda sounds similar to the Kid Rock following that is unique to Detroit nowadays. THanks for the replies !
  5. Mark Farner & Ace Frehely were guests on VH1 That Metal Show last night. During the interview Farner told a story of how Peter Grant pulled the plug on Grand Funk Railroad, who opened a 1970 show at Detroit's Olympia Stadium. He claimed the fans were a pissed and that Zeppelin played to half a house once they got on stage 90 mins later. Couldn't find any truth to this story on the forum. thx, Otto
  6. Most likely a cold Monday Monday night in Detroit on March 30, so what the hell..may as well go. I've spent alot more than $12 on crappy movies over the years...we all have
  7. James Patrick Page should do one final worldwide retirement tour for the benefit of the planet. Donate all the proceeds of the tour to cure hunger, poverty, bad haircuts, whatever. At the end of the tour, JP gets the Nobel Peace Prize nomination. Jason, Jonesy on drums and bass full time while each leg of the tour could feature one or more singers/guitarists from his catalog and/or a few new ones. Play all the big hits from the past, present and future, as Jimmy likes to say.
  8. Steve, Ive heard from somelocal zep heads the band stayed at the Troy Hilton for this show.
  9. I had no idea Page ever played in A2. Only took Plant 40+ years more to finally perform there?
  10. I've read some Beattles' forum threads that dissect/analyze outtakes and bootlegs by the miliseconds. Don't this we've reached that level here, but if e do, fine by me.
  11. Paul Rodgers was on the VH1's 'That Metal Show' a couple weeks back. Paul described in some candid detail how he and Jimmy Page started The Firm and also described the history on Bad Co's entry onto the Swan Song label. The show is rerun quite often, so catch it the next time around. Interesting stuff.
  12. Yardbirds @Michigan State Fairgrounds is so far my fav "on this day" posting. I know a couple people who were at one of the two consecutive shows there. The State Fairground Coliseum still stands, but the MI State Fair ended for good in 2009. Otto in Detroit
