  1. Late to this party but well done! What an amazing musician, Tony deserves more acclaim..
  2. Well said. Congrats to Jimmy and Robert, glad the courts got it right.
  3. I’m guessing Jimmy was probably unhappy Gorman told this tale out of school in the first place, and even less happy Rich was forced to address it! I wouldn’t expect an answer of any substance if he’s ever asked about it.
  4. BC also clearly ended on a bad note with Robert. The interview is a good listen, most of it regards The Who as he’s been with them a really long time, but the Page and Plant stories are interesting...
  5. Heard Bill Curbishley interviewed on Bob Lefsetz’s podcast today.. According to BC, a friend of his recently ran into Page, who asked him to send his love to Curbishley, and added that he had come to realize how much good he did for him when he was his manager. Just thought it as an interesting addition to the thread, Jimmy’s many manager switches are interesting/puzzling to me, and it really seems Curbishley did a great thing for him and the others regarding their publishing rights.
  6. That is just amazing, thanks for posting! Can’t imagine how I’ve never heard that before, didn’t know Rod still had that kind of performance and soul in him by that point. And Gilmour and JPJ more than hold up their end too! 👍👍👍
  7. What a nasty, mean spirited review. I wasn’t at the Forum but I saw two shows back east and have numerous bootlegs and I have a hard time imagining his playing on that tour being “embarrassingly sloppy.” I also hate the idea that Jimmy Page was not supposed to do Jimmy Page things and play Jimmy Page things. Thank God he didn’t sound like he was trying to be “modern” I wouldn’t want him to do a “Shaken N Stirred.” Steve, where’d that Slash quote come from? Never heard that one before..
  8. I went to that the chi it at the MET, it was amazing. Would love to know what Jimmy was saying in that picture!
  9. What a cool production!
  10. Great summary! Agreed on the jam with Jaco. Tony Franklin said Jimmy and Jaco “negotiated” before that jam, no crazy jazz chords, etc. I think it’s fun to listen to Jimmy figure it out as he goes. In those days he’d jump onstage with anyone at any time, it’s why I’m surprised he’s pretty much the opposite of that now. My best guess is 1) his chops are not in touring shape for obvious reasons, and 2) he never thought something like Fanny Mae Jam with Jaco at the Lonestar would wind up on YouTube being picked apart by thousands of wannabes. Must be annoying. Outrider was a revelation to me after the abysmal Atlantic 40th performance. He was amazing, the soloing on OTHAFA alone was worth the price of admission. 98 in the Garden is a show I’ll always remember, he was clearly making a statement on that tour. Same with the Crowes, where it seemed like the presence of Audrey Freed and Rich Robinson allowed him to really concentrate on being a true lead guitarist. Finally, the O2 was terrific, especially given that it was only one show without a warmup and he hadn’t toured in years. The solos on GTBT told me right from the start that he took it very seriously. I had, and have, no doubt that even a handful of additional shows after that would have brought him back to an amazing level of playing. Shame it never happened..
  11. Wow, well worth the time, thanks for posting! The ending was really nice..👍 Now can we have Angus interviewing Jimmy at Loch Ness? 😆
  12. Good post, and sad about Mick Ralphs. If that’s why he had someone covering for him on stage I’m okay with it. Perhaps that’s the band’s way of supporting him and he needs help with medical bills? You never know.
  13. I’m convinced he still plays as evidenced by some of the stuff on IMGL. Yes that was 10 years ago at this point but a guy who loves the instrument as much as he does would not just stop. He always pointedly says he’d “like to be seen playing,” which suggests to me that the only thing missing is a public forum. Does he REALLY want to get out in public and play? I’m guessing that’s the real question. Don’t have a link but I remember that when he was in NYC last year for one of his GF Scarlett’s poetry readings, someone who spoke with him claimed that Jimmy said he’d been “rehearsing with some people” so who knows... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aQCv6jmv-EU
  14. He’s done a bunch of these, including No Quarter, When The Levee Breaks, and Since I’ve Been Loving You. They’re fun to watch...
  15. He appeared on a TV show and to his surprise was handed an acoustic guitar and asked to play. He raked out a few chords but because he didn’t play a 1970-quality version of White Summer some people here freaked out. 😆
  16. Hard to pick just one moment so I’ll name two songs that nobody’s mentioned yet: Ten Years Gone and Bron-Yr-Aur from Physical Graffiti. I was already into Zeppelin when I first heard PG at my friend’s beach house but those two really opened my eyes (and ears). Both instantly identifiable as Page, can’t mistake those for any other player.
  17. Interesting, I’ve never seen it and don’t recognize anyone else in the photo.
  18. There is no decision too stupid for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
  19. Agreed, what a talent. Saw Page and Plant at MSG in July ‘98, they were on fire and my friend took to calling Michael Lee “Animal” after the famous muppet after watching the way he attacked his kit that night.
  20. Now there’s a singer whose voice has aged incredibly well!
  21. I agree with you. I also think the Firm’s stuff could do with a nice remix and/or remastering. A little muddy in places..
  22. It’s a nickname. There is no actual monarchy in music.
  23. It’s funny how many here seem to buy into the idea that all Elvis did was repackage black music in a good looking white guy. This totally leaves out the country aspect of his influence. It’s also ironic because it’s the exact same kind of criticism many heap on Jimmy and the boys, wrongly in my view.
