    Facebook and issues that come with it

    Typical of Facebook's standard operating procedures -- it doesn't matter if what we're doing is ethical, it only matters that it's technically legal. I fucking hate Facebook. It's arguably become the biggest waste of time in the world today.

    Hitchcocks Vertigo-Inspiration for Kashmir

    Hasn't Page himself freely admitted The Rain Song was inspired by George Harrison's song Something? There's an old mummy film from the 1930's or '40's -- can't be bothered to confirm again which film -- that has the suspenseful "duh duh duh (pause) duh duh duh" of Kashmir when the mummy first appears in his tomb. I thought it was discussed here before but the search function did not yield anything.

    Sorry. I did not see this until now! Thanks! I'll look into this.

    The Rest in Peace Thread

    Hal Blaine I just heard the very sad news that session drummer Hal Blaine has passed. Some were very fortunate to celebrate his 90th birthday with him just recently at The Baked Potato in Los Angeles, where he performed publicly for the last time. Arguably the greatest studio session drummer ever.

    Page now fighting his other neighbour!

    In the Robbie Williams vs. Jimmy Page thread I mentioned that when I was at Tower House last June I did notice that Sir Harvey McGrath's home was encased in scaffolding. It seemed they were replacing the roof at that time, so these four ac units would be a continuation of ongoing renovations at that property, which is situated right up against the boundary with Tower House. Although there are sound proofing measures that can be taken with regard to these units, there's no question that having FOUR out front will generate noise that Jimmy will find annoying, if not insufferable. Hopefully they can work this out!

    Lived into his 70s but squandered a lot of those years on drugs and alcohol addiction.

    Advice on Knebworth 1979 rare t -shirt

    Prospective buyers who actually recall seeing this shirt being sold during the Festival and are confident it's an original may be inclined to offer $100 or more but without some photographic proof or credible testimony this shirt was sold during the festival it may be difficult to sell to anyone for more than $100, if that. So many fake and reproduction t-shirts on the market nowadays that prospective buyers are skeptical. I can think of one Chinese merchant on ebay that sells reproductions of official concert merchandise within days of the event. Vintage items get reproduced too when the design and demand are there. The $5,000 Over Europe 1980 t-shirt in that article -- I am very skeptical about that valuation. About five years ago I purchased an original, authentic Over Europe 1980 sweater shirt very similar to that t-shirt from a credible source with a letter of provenance for about three hundred dollars including shipping and handling.

    Thefts of recordings from Jimmy Page's home...

    Ok, four years ago I posted to this thread it was "a private collector".

    His wife Mayumi Kai is here in Tokyo. She was the DJ at the Atom Tokyo club over the weekend. She's a knock out.
  11. Well, he just put her on the map. Her voice reminds me a bit of Edie Brickell's.
