    Where do I begin... clasic rock with the likes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Harry Potter books (all 4,100 pages worth), knock-off Mensa games/magazines, SBs chocolate truffle coffee, what my kids are up to when their doors are closed, fossils, and national security.

  1. And don't forget Spinal Tap! They did their part, too. Stonehenge, where the demons dwell Where the banshees live and they do live well Stonehenge Where a man is a man and the children dance to the pipes of pan Stonehenge Tis a magic place where the moon doth rise With a dragon's face Stonehenge Where the virgins lie And the prayer of devils fill the midnight sky And you my love, won't you take my hand We'll go back in time to that mystic land Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow I will take you there I will show you how
  2. Thanks for giving him a chance; I'm sure he'd appreciate it.
  3. So is Steven Tyler or anyone elses' for that matter. The point being, Logan's in the family and he can hit the high notes; he'd sound great on Stairway and Immigrant Song. Here's his band on YouTube. He sounds excellent. Logan Plant: Sons of Albion Seven Seals
  4. Why not? Don't you think he knows how to sing Stairway like his Dad?
  5. There's a shopping center nearby named Zepp Plaza. I always want to add the "elin" whenever I see it.
  6. Oooo- something fun! You're So Vain from Carly Simon... Why? It's about the man with the "scarf that was apricot," screwing all his best friends' wives... AND Carly Simon once said the person she wrote this about has an "E" in his name. (She never said exactly who she wrote it for. She'll take that secret to her grave.) So there ya go! You walked into the party Like you were walking onto a yacht Your hat strategically dipped below one eye Your scarf it was apricot You had one eye in the mirror As you watched yourself gavotte And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner They'd be your partner, and You're so vain You probably think this song is about you You're so vain I'll bet you think this song is about you Don't you? Don't you? You had me several years ago When I was still quite naive Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair And that you would never leave But you gave away the things you loved And one of them was me I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee Clouds in my coffee, and You're so vain You probably think this song is about you You're so vain I'll bet you think this song is about you Don't you? Don't you? I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee Clouds in my coffee, and You're so vain You probably think this song is about you You're so vain I'll bet you think this song is about you Don't you? Don't you? Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga And your horse naturally won Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia To see the total eclipse of the sun Well, you're where you should be all the time And when you're not, you're with Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend Wife of a close friend, and You're so vain You probably think this song is about you You're so vain I'll bet you think this song is about you Don't you? Don't you?
  7. Any point forward from the jungle river scenes with Marlon Brando (Colonel Kurtz) & Dennis Hopper in Apocalypse Now.
  8. I thought about him yesterday when I drove past St. John's college in Annapolis, MD. In between partying with Jimmy and Peter Grant, he served on the Board of Visitors and Governors in the '70s. Here's more info regarding his scholarship fund, too.
  9. I just read in my book Rolling With the Stones that Jimmy was involved with a record label called "Immediate Records" which began in 1965 and folded in 1970. According to Bill Wyman, "Jimmy produced, played on and arranged many of the singles." Which is odd because Jimmy was anti-singles when with the Yardbirds, right? Here's some more info about the record company: Stylus Magazine Another Immediate Records gem: featuring Page, Beck, Mayall, and Clapton. Very nice.
  10. Degree was such a bizzare (and low budget) film project. I can't imagine why Jimmy agreed to help out especially when he had his own woes and obligations with The Yardbirds. Like he had time to do this soundtrack, tour the states, work on new sound effects, record and produce, etc? It must have been a rush job at best. That's probably why he won't talk about it- no doubt the sound quality alone didn't meet his standards. Best to leave this one unsolved...you can't dust for lost soundtracks!
  11. Interesting- I've never heard Jimmy mention this soundtrack in any interview of his that I've read over 35 years. Maybe working with Anita Pallenberg would give anybody instant amnesia. Still, I've often wondered about a potential Page/Jones collaberation as well. They both loved the blues and ethnic music (and velvet jackets). Wow, what a team they could have made- probably could have invented a whole new genre of music, too. Ironically, while Brian was playing the heck out of the maracas on Jumpin' Jack Flash and Jimmy was firmly entrenched in a Yardbirds nightmare, I have to wonder why Peter Grant didn't try to pull Brian into Jimmy's future band plans? Brian was mulit-talented with almost any stringed instrument. No doubt he could have played bass if asked to join Jimmy's "super group." ps- How come I've never seen a picture of Jimmy & Brian together? Are there any out there? I couldn't find one.
  12. And Jimmy and Bill crossed paths again at the O2 concert in 2007. Coincidence or what??? From what I've just read in Steve's post, it's a wonder Jimmy didn't join The Stones as a silent partner, collect some royalties, and call it a day. Now that would be a clever bastardly thing to do!
  13. Upon doing some "research" for a fellow forum member, I came upon some interesting facts regarding Led Zeppelin's encounters with The Stones over the years beyond the Led Wallet stories and the Krissie/Charlotte swap. Please share some of your Zep/Stones close encounters knowledge, too, because clearly these two bands were tighter than expected. Much appreciated!! (Jimmy played solo on The Stone's song One Hit to the Body in 1985.) "Jimmy is featured on lead guitar, but for contractural reasons was not credited on the sleeve notes." - Rolling Stones The Complete Recording Sessions. (Jimmy and Bill Wyman were close friends, mostly in the studio. Bill mentions Jimmy numerous times in his autobiography, Stone Alone. Below are a few facts from that book): *A memo from Andrew Loog Oldham read, "[in 1965] We will be bringing in new producers while our main hope lies with the top session guitarist who's turned producer, Jimmy Page, and my two friends, Mick and Keith." *Bill further claims Led Zeppelin as "the biggest rock band of the seventies." *Jimmy was rumored as a "possible successor" for filling Brian Jones' position before Brian's death. (I always thought it was immediately after.) And many more.....
  14. Live at Pompeii- yes because 1. I love the scenery. 2. I love the music. 3. I've watched it nearly a hundred times, and never yawned once. TSRTS no because: 1. The editing sucks- take a look at John Paul Jone's stage outfits on various songs and you'll see one minute he's wearing a white shirt, the next a jacket, back to the white shirt, etc. 2. It's depressing- filmed all over the East Coast with pregnant teenagers and tough cops. 3. Robert's character role takes up 2 songs. Yawn. ps- if I have room for only one dvd, then how much room do I have for a player?
