  1. It may have been taken at the same hotel, but a different day. There seems to be a room number on the door.
  2. I've always suspected they were taken Aug/Sep 1974, either during or very soon after they were recording additional footage at Shepperton Studios in August 1974. The clothing matches that worn by Page during the hurdy gurdy, "glowing red eyes" segment of the film. Additionally, I have a candid photo of Jimmy walking with Peter Clifton and photographer Pennie Smith on the grounds of Plumpton Place and he is wearing this same clothing.
  3. Joey Kramer is already worth over $100 million dollars. He simply missed out on all the rehearsals thus far but still tried to get onboard late in the game. No band can afford to have a drummer onstage who doesn't have his chops, especially for a high profile event. So this is strictly a business decision to preserve their image. Besides, 80% of the people there wouldn't know Joey Kramer from a rubber chicken anyway. As a by the way, Kramer is 69 1/2 and doesn't look a day under 80. This looks completely staged.
  4. Someone please stick a fork in this band, they're done.
  5. Interesting question. Their whereabouts during this time are not particularly well documented, but that said I do not show anything that suggests they did reside as tax exiles during this time. It could be that with no earnings from touring or new releases the motivation to do so wasn't there. ITTOD was released in August 1979. Jimmy and his family did stay with Jim Capaldi and family in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil that year, and vacation in Barbados in November but in either case uncertain how long for. We do know he was back at home in Plumpton by the end of November 1979.
  6. To my ears it sounds like an E7 chord or similar, with the last note simply allowed to ring out. Regardless, it's not a trumpet.
  7. It's not MY version, it's from online and "close enough" (meaning don't take it as gospel) as I said.
  8. Come on Chiefs, get it done.
  9. The quality of the scan is such that it's almost impossible to say. A press review reported "a capacity crowd cheered them to the echo of a raving rock finale in which backstage fans were seen dancing in the wings". I have a hunch the gentlemen in the suit and tie is the concert promoter for this event, Tony Stratton-Smith.
  10. From online and apparently correct, or at least close enough: The Rover Led Zeppelin I've been to London, seen seven wonders I know to trip is just to fall I used to rock it, sometimes I'd roll it I always knew what it was for There can be no denying, that the wind'll shake 'em down And the flat world's flying, and there's a new plague on the land (If we could just join hands) (If we could just join) Traversed the planet, when heaven sent me I saw the kings who rule them all Still by the firelight and purple moonlight I hear the rested rivers call And the wind is crying, from a love that won't grow cold My lover, she is lying, on the dark side of the globe (If we could just join hands) You got me rocking when I ought to be a-rolling Darling, tell me, darling, which way to go You keep me rocking, baby, then you keep me stolen Won't you tell me, darling, which way to go, that's right Oh how I wonder, oh how I worry, and I would dearly like to know I've all this wonder, of earthly plunder, will it leave us anything to show And our time is flying, see the candle burning low Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old (If we could just join hands) If we could just, if we could just, if we could just If we could just, if we could just join hands That's all it takes, that's all it takes That's all it takes, that's all it takes (Yeah) Songwriters: JIMMY PAGE, ROBERT PLANT © Warner Chappell Music, Inc.
  11. "I'm having to develop a three-finger technique, but it's a drag. It happened when I was on a train in England, on my way to rehearsal". -- Jimmy Page (1975) That remark in addition to no Dazed and Confused in Brussels or Rotterdam leads me to believe it is an undetermined date sometime between December 22nd 1974 and January 10th 1975.
  12. Oh, ok and now as we have seen in the Zeppelin Photo Mysteries thread it seems they went to Mother Blue's on Lemmon Avenue afterward. THAT is a long day!
  13. Circled in red is the reference to John Bonham jamming with U.S. Kids...so that must be the name of the band in the photo by John Gasperik! The caption also suggests this was after the sold-out Dallas concert which narrows the date down to April 1st or most likely sometime after midnight the morning of April 2nd. I wonder if John Gasperik has a full color print of the jam as well as what now seems to be three different photos of Robert with the lovely ladies? To have these in high-res quality would a real bonus.
  14. Mother Blues, 4015 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas, TX
