  1. I mean this is stunning. The juxtaposition of their ages is remarkable...she seems almost as accomplished as him and is certainly getting all due respect from him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIFFRHBCPzA...player_embedded
  2. As an aside have you ever looked at Beck's basssist who is so amazing and yet looks all of 15....
  3. Actually I don't think it would be too much to expect his manager to find him a singer. I think there's one out there and if I had the resources (ie money enough to dedicate myself to it) I could do it myself. The tough thing would be to find someone who was not just a howling rocker but someone sublime and who could write-and not just write but write Page, Jones, Bonham quality. The writing in the end wouldn't matter as much because there are brilliant writers out there who would line up for the chance to work with this group. So in the end all we need is a singer who has range, can rock and also has a mysterious quality 'x' to their singing like Jimmy has to his playing. Robert Hunter (Jerry Garcia's lyricist has written songs for many other singers for example) and he could write some brilliant stuff if approached-this is just one example (a good one though)....
  4. All the best Buddy-he's a great one! Check out him and his wife singing this wonderful song; hauntingly appropriate. "You can have my heart if you don't mind broken things." Also haunting is Julie's beautiful singing. Really really nice! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM3UqEXFcic
  5. I'd say that anyone would like to record in Nashville at least once if they could. It certainly turned out well for ours truly. I'm sure the history and connections were not lost on him either. In fact he's steeped himself in it I would bet.
  6. The Nashville thing worked for David Lee Roth. ...since this he's gone back to Van Halen.....maybe Robert will do the same....
  7. I find it hard to believe that Jimmy is happy with not having a good musical direction. I see him as someone who has been largely frustrated since the end of Zeppelin; never again finding a group of musicians that are at his level-which he frankly hasn't had since Zeppelin. I would wish him all happiness as well but am not convinced he could possibly be happy with one dead end after another and an obvious constant craving to play his music. This kind of craving is not particular to Jimmy either; most musicians have an innate urge to pay their music whether it was written thirty years ago or last week I would not see him being happy with the project they were so public about dying before being born. This leads me to my conclusion that he either has an ace in the hole or has thrown all his cards away in frustration--again. I think he needs some help finding the singer (if he really wants one)-I'm convinced it could be done. From what we heard about the few who tried out I would say that he was looking in the wrong direction to begin with. I believe the right person for the job is somebody who he would never have thought of and is nipping this in the bud-which is unfortunate in my view. He seems to be a victim of circumstances rather than the Saint of Circumstance he could be.
  8. Aside from whatever Robert is thinking, I think the amazing thing is that Jimmy et al can't get anything going. I actually can't believe it. I have to think they a) must have been trying to psyche Robert into the project and/or have his assurance that he will do something with them after his next go round with T-Bone. They are just too good to not have some immediate possibilities unless they have something to wait for. They COULD absolutely find a singer to make an interesting project and I can't believe Jimmy and John Paul have thrown in the towel(s) for good. Granted , I'm not sure I trust Jimmy to make the best choice given his record and if nothing else he needs better management; ie someone who could find the best singer for the deal. I could probably do it 'fer the love of god------and these guys can't? Somethin' is goin' on here.....

    WOOT! Nice. Im surprised-I didnt expect the industry to go so far out on a limb as to award this best album of the year. At least Radiohead didnt have to compromise their artistic integrity in winning it.

    Justin has real talent. Much like Prince-when you see them do an R and B revue it really is great.

    We may have to survive a Neil Diamond performance first. Robert owes us a tour now!
