  1. apparently the Schleyerhalle in Stuttgart opened only in 1983. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle The guy the venue was named after, Hanns Martin Schleyer was shot dead by the R.A.F. in October 1977. also the "tour dates sticker" looks just like a cheap photoshop job, even in angle. no LZ german tour in 77 !
  2. sweet, i might get one of those 45s, tho i have it already on a vinyl boot LP. wouldn't this one be a nice option for next year's RSD ? : https://www.discogs.com/de/John-Paul-Jones-Baja/release/4903288 i've never seen a copy of it on vinyl.
  3. Roger has put up a nice scan of the german article of the Foreigner / LZ 1982 live jam up on his own thread yesterday, so please take a peep over there !
  4. Just sent out a request to Roger Berlin on his own thread "Magazines and Articles by Roger Berlin" at the LZ Master Forum about the press article from May 1982's BRAVO magazine showing pics from the live jam with Foreigner. I hope he will respond and finds the time to scan and post it soon there. I remember Robert looking really good in those pictures in black clothes while Lou Gramm seemed to wear a Robert Plant "1980 LZ Over Europe" rip-off version of green T-shirt and blue jeans
  5. Yes Steve, that looks like a pic from the same show and in those Hammersmith pics Jimmy does play his B-Bender Tele whereas i remember from the Munich shots he was playing a black Les Paul (probably a Mick Jones back up instrument). Thank you for helping to clear this matter. now, where are those Munich Jam pics ? i know i saved the magazine in my parents home, but that is currently about 600 km from here..
  6. now, do you mind if i start a little ramblin on this topic ? i do remember in 82 being a german 13-14 year old teenager and full on big time into Zep then. and i used to read those kiddie zines then, because i couldnt get good info on rock music elsewhere (not that those zines made much sense). so what i def remember is that a then weekly zine called POP/ROCKY did run a short report on this jam with a B/W pic, probably the week after it happenend. i can't prove this with a pic, because i dont have it anymore, neither did i find it anywhere online yet. then a week (or maybe two) after that, a competing teenie mag called BRAVO did run a whole 2 page story with full color pics on Foreigner jamming with Jimmy & Robert onstage in Munich and even had a quote or two (i think from RP) about the event, going sth like (not the exact words-just my memory): " Oh, Jimmy & I were just in Munich by chance when Foreigner came to town and they are truely among the best of rock bands these days and also good friends-labelmates, so we went backstage and then were invited to join in a couple of numbers for an encore. we did "Lucille" and it was real good fun indeed, makes me want to go back onstage again soon!" now i remember Robert on the double page color pics with the Foreigner live band wearing cool looking black leather pants and a black t-shirt, along with white sneakers, Jimmy wore a grey suit and white scarf in my memory. seeing on the picture above as reposted from the Dave Lewis book, it doesnt seem to come at all from the same performance. it rather looks like a nice Jimmy shot from ARMS with a photoshopped-in Robert to me. I've tried to look into the BRAVO online archives for May 1982 to have some proof for this, but they are only as far as 1980 with their archive and anyway it would cost some cash to download (whole issues available only). but perhaps Roger Berlin could help us out here ? my point is, the pic above is NOT from the JP/RP/Foreigner Munich jam, but there def are some good pics around in some mag collectors archive
  7. Yes, it will come, at least JPJ stated that in an audience Q & A at the berlin premiere of Celebration Day.
  8. me neither and i was at the gig, so i've had an eye open over the years. i remember they played a really fine full band rendition of Yallah (TheTruthExplodes) there, not sure if they also involved the egyptians into that tune, but kinda most likely.
  9. ah of course wikipedia is our friend, its from the 1968 album " The Graham Gouldman Thing": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Graham_Gouldman_Thing
  10. Here`s a version of a well known tune, performed by the man who actually wrote it. look at who arranged this (and quite possibly played keys and absolutely played bass on it) : this being a much more heavy version than the yardbirds rendition with clapton, i suppose it was recorded after it had been a hit. anyone know more about this ?
  11. hey Thank You,

    it s been a while,and tho im not really posting much here,

    im still reading along ;)

    best wishes from berlin


  12. Gracias for this concert memory, Badgeholder! well i only got into detective in the early 80s while searching for swan song music. after two studio albums and a live promo LP, accordingly the band broke up while recording album # 3 yes indeed it was the disco age, just take a look at that 2nd album cover! but the music sounds great to me today: heavy, funky and dark the most complete discography i could find for the band is here. does anybody remember Michael Des Barres' band Silverhead from the early 70s ? The guitarist here was a certain Robbie Blunt. for Grim Reaper, somebody must have read your thoughts, it was just uploaded a few days ago.
  13. Thanx for pulling out those memories Deborah J! uuuh, Competition sounds like a better Bad Company.. at least two brits in this american band. i also have this swan song live promo LP in my shelf sitting here since 2 decades, think i'll give it a spin later hey Badgeholder, do u have any memories from the concert to share ?
  14. what a nice mistake, cos 'One More Heartache' has so many similarities with WTLB. and the overall sound of the drums make one believe that it was really mr. page's 'fault' that one remembers mr. bonham's sound so much. i've always wondered how deep jimmy's involvement with Detective really was, as some of those guitars sound soooo familiar.. is there any proof he came to play some himself ? and of course it's a shame, that post LZ he never really went into studio production other than for his own projects like for instance mr. jones did.
  15. So there seems to be no video of the band in their practise room between 1968 and 1980, guess the best we can get is this then, from a band that is active once or twice a decade now:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zUBiXBYk2k
  16. Robert Kuhlmann & the Flying Boats -Down by the Seaside from the mid 80s "The Song Retains the Name" album. didnt find an online version tho.. but a very refreshing interpretation, sounds almost nothing like the original. think LZ could dig that approach to a cover.
  17. no special order here and valid only for today: In The Mood Sixes And Sevens I Get A Thrill You Better Run ( by "Listen") Wreckless Love
  18. yaa, that´s it:) not the most inspired of designs, but a nice deja vu now & here.
  19. Hey, nice vid! the music seems to go like that: Peter Gabriel - Vocals & Rhythm Programming JPJ - Keys and Electric Bass interesting to imagine what those two charakters musically could have come up more with..
  20. Merci for clearing that up, Swandon. i believe this could be interesting to listen to as it is a 3 piece, 15 minute suite or something: John Paul Jones - Amores Passados Al son de los arroyuelos [4:57] No Dormio [6:06] So elle encina [4:33] Review (by Stuart Maconie in NME 26 January 1991 Similarly, vocal duo Red Byrd's collection wilfully mixes the haunting formality of 16th Century Italy with uncharacteristically lovely settings of poems by Led Zep's John Paul Jones! Unfortunately for Red Byrd, it's the use of modern guitar and bass that really catch the attention, particularly in the twisted, fractured textures of Frank Martin's'Trois Poems' (8). Link Isn´t it a bit curious that JPJ seems to lead a secret and not well documented life as Choir Master sometimes?!
  21. thank you mucho, Steve! i shall look into that. i am sure to remember that the music to the whole performance i saw was credited to have been composed by JPJ.
  22. 1991 01.18 London, England Queen Elizabeth Hall Note: Joins joins vocal renaissance group Red Byrd to perform Jones' composition 'Amores Pasodas'. Jones plays lute, harpsichord and vihuela At that time i read new a report that Mr.Jones was producing a double CD album with his own classical compositions. so there was some truth about back then. i wonder why it was never released somewhere ? 1992 07.?? Seville, Spain World's Fair Note: Jones is musical director for a one-hour showcase of technology and art titled Memory Palace; featured 'Liquid Selves' by Karl Sims This went on some kind of tour in europe with the La Fura Dels Baus artist performer group from spain, then funded by Mercedes Benz. i remember seeing this great performance for free on a big open air space in Berlin then (1993?), but i have no knowledge if JPJ toured with the group who were multimedia artists working with their bodies, fire & flame throwing, self built cars, wild masks - generally quite avantgarde in a shocking mad max kind of scenario. and there was kind of a band that were playing mostly wild, industrial music. quite amazing then, again i have no idea why the music never was made available, not even at the performance.
  23. 1983 12.04 Bristol, England Colston Hall Note: Joins Robert Plant for encore; 'Little Sister'. that is why i love this website, you never stop learning new things. hadnt heard of this jam before and was not aware that RP & JPJ hooked up much after LZ crashed.
  24. My pleasure, Steve. Yes the poster i´m sure is the same as for the hamburg gig, it had the "new band for 84" tag & names and most definetely it was a Lippmann & Rau tour of germany, just like i think all previous LZ concerts here had been arranged by L&R agency. i believe Fritz Rau was a good friend of LZ thruout their whole career, thus it was natural to work with follow up projects. had the pleasure of meeting the man once shortly in Wiesbaden in the mid 80s. he is considered a true rockn roll+++ legend, worked with everybody in the biz and pulled a lot of strings in the entertainment sector here.
