    I figure it would be, at $2,400 that's a steal. I looked it up as well and could not find it as if I had I would have bought it.

    Only $2,400? That dude on Pawn Stars had an original vinyl Zep I with three signatures on the back and Jimmy's on the front and an expert appraised that at around 10-12k. The appraiser said if all four were together it would have been worth even more for display purposes.

    Am I missing something?


    Everything stated by the expert brought in to authenticate and appraise this item is absolutely correct.

    2nd Pfizer shot. Junior gets his first Pfizer shot on Thursday. Mrs Walter received her 2nd shot a week ago Monday. 

    We are....


    Even so, I think it's best she be sequestered in Tokyo at an undisclosed location for at least a month. Please be fully supportive and encourage her to start packing soonest.

    Though Whitesnake did start sounding like Zeppelin I don't know why Plant would be upset or insulting toward Coverdale as IMO it is a compliment, plus David seems a genuinely nice fellow.

    Robert was in the midst of his mid-life crisis. Had he felt more secure in his circumstances at the time it's quite likely Coverdale's success would not have annoyed him as much as it did.

    #1 for me still has to be the thumping car stereos and now the ridiculous sounding car and truck exhaust systems. What the fuck ever happened to the noise ordinance? 

    8.20.010 Declaration of policy.

    It is declared to be the policy of the city to minimize exposure of citizens to harmful and psychological effects of extensive noise. It is the expressed intent of the city to control the level of noise in a manner which promotes commerce, the use, value and enjoyment of property, sleep and repose, and the quality of the environment. (Ord. 1599 § 3, 1988).

    Me too. In fact, just the other night in Kobe (Japan) I watched four motorcyclists tailgating some young Japanese douchebag in a Lamborghini down the road. He'd gun his engine and they'd respond in kind by revving their bikes. It was one big penis substitute parade that impressed no one besides themselves. I hope they all arrived safely at the Saturday night dick dance they must have been headed to.

    Great thread. 

    I have a two fold question, if you please? I saw Page and Plant in Knoxville, TN on March 3rd, 1995. Firstly, do any photos exist from this show? I seem to recall a couple being used in a USA Today article, but I cant seem to find that now. Also, during the show, Robert mentions that he and Jimmy stayed in Gatlinburg (a small, touristy resort town not far from Knoxville) the night before. I was under the impression (based on previous thread comments) that the boys flew in from Atlanta to Knoxville the day of the show,. If they did stay in Gatlinburg, any idea where they stayed. My gut tells me that it was probably a private mountain cabin (as they are everywhere in Gatlinburg.)

    Thanks in advance. 

    Frank Melfi quite likely photographed the Knoxville show and can be contacted on Facebook. I know he shot the Memphis show the following night.

    The official tour itinerary booklet provided to the band, staff and crew has them flying from Atlanta's DeKalb Airport to Knoxville's McGee Airport the day of the show and checking into the Hyatt Regency. They were then to be flown from McGee Airport to Memphis International the following day for the Memphis show that night. Since the day before the Knoxville show was a day off it is quite possible Jimmy & Robert elected to deviate from published itinerary and stay in Gatlinburg instead of another night in Atlanta.     

    A Knoxville concert review was published in The News-Sentinel on March 4, 1995 but unfortunately I don't currently have it on file in my archive.

    Here is a YouTube video from a 2020 podcast, in which Deborah Smith Cahan called in and discussed this (her sitting in as replacement bassist for JPJ at the Cleveland 1970 concert, because JPJ's father had died and he had to leave).   She doesn't go into much detail--nothing about what songs she played, or any interactions with the band members--and the podcast hosts unfortunately don't ask her any follow up questions.  She begins talking about this at about 32 and half minutes into this interview.


    Thank you very much, ABHouston.

    I show Cleveland concert show time was also moved from 8:30 pm to 5:30 pm to allow JPJ to make a late evening flight to London following death of Joe Baldwin (his father).

    Who you going to see?  

    No one. Baseball's had some great moments since the strike shortened '94 season but my enthusiasm and interest in MLB pretty much died with that player's strike. I've probably seen at most three games since then, and two of those were merely for the sake of experiencing a games at Wrigley Field in Chicago and PNC Park in Pittsburgh. 

  10. So does this mean I won’t have to show id when I pick up my tickets? Hypocrites. I’ll never know as MLB has been dead to me since 1994.

    I have no doubt it's that "Citizen of the World" guy in Arizona who used to post here as IpMan and then PeaceFrogYum.

    2,722,047 people have died from Covid-19. Explain to me - how have these people died?

    The question to ask if how many of them have COVID-19 listed as the sole cause of death. For example, when the US was at 250,000 about 10% had COVID-19 as the sole cause.
