  1. Been to the Met so after not being on here for almost 3 years figured I'd share some pics. Folks there were ok with cellphone, but definitely objected to flash photos. I filmed the entire Jimmy video but can't post that up on here. If I ever load it up to youtube I'll post link, but I suspect most of you have already seen it anyways. If you're in town definitely worth the $25 bucks, unless you gots a library card. I'd love to have a talk with Perry about the BB as he says it's been restored. I'd like to know when and to what condition. For the life of me I can't see any evidence of there being 3 toggles on this. Unless it was covered up 45 years ago and then aged to the condition it's in now. Too bad they had the guitar mounted in a way so you couldn't see the back and any other tell tale signs of the extensive routing work Joe Jammer said he put in. I don't recall seeing that guitar with pickup covers since pre RAH, yet this one has well aged covers. The #1 is just something you need to see in person and just be in awe of it. The Dragon sadly has also been restored to the same condition as the one you can purchase at the Met store so also kinda hard to believe it's truly the original. I now question all the stories of it being ruined beyong playability and the neck being re-used in the Botswana brown tele. Anyways enjoy these. I got a gazzillion more but these are some of the coolest ones. I definitely plan on going back again before it all goes off to Cleveland. To be seen to be, but not being played.
  2. Thanks for sharing and making the effort that it gone done right. Kudos! Probably one of the very first silver boots I ever got, so very cool to listen to it as if it was a brand new show! It's almost weird to NOT have that break in TYG! Again thanks.

  4. Here's the site Frank mentioned before... Was a work in progress till everyone got sidetracked. I should update it with some of the pics from here.. http://www.oldbuckeye.com/Houses_of_the_Holy/
  5. Probably one of the best places to check out for info on the symbol.... http://www.inthelight.co.nz/ledzep/zososymbol.htm The book is also a good read.
  6. Actually, I asked JPJ that personally when I got to meet him after the DVD premiere in NYC. I told him how it had been in numberous discussions and his reply was that it just got put there at some point during the rehearsals/soundchecks and never moved. Just kinda became glued to the set. Then in his good humored way he added "I'm just glad it never rang during a number I wouldn't know what to do!" you can read that whole long winded encounter here: http://www.oldbuckeye.com/Nechs_NYC_Moment/
  7. I have also heard repeated rumors that the entire 3/28/00 Irving Plaza show was pro shot for future release but got scrapped. Supposedly now hoarded but have never been able to confirm either... would be nice to see as that was a killer show.
  8. Hunt was in the original cast and opening day was Sept 27, 1968...but as to when she actually joine dup with them.... ???
  9. Wikipedia is the knows all balls all...don't ya know? I won't even go into what is commonly used in lieu of Richard...

  11. Now is wolfman refering to the Bray Studio rehearsals or soundchecks to the Copenhagen warm ups ? According to Dave Lewis there was video shot of the Bray studio rehearsals. Wolf, were do you see it that Jason played TU specifically? ... my mind draws a sudden blank. D'oh! never mind...just fact checked myself and see now that you are referring to the sounchecks of Aud 2nd... thank you TBL guy!
  12. Well Jonesy's no stranger to scary Cool Diamanda Scary Diamanda!
  13. Geez, and here I thought Sam never makes comments about any such things! I wonder what their webmasters, publicity guys, record label (?) think of this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PtsaMokig0 The Devil will be Happy ?? What's that?!?! perhaps the title of the background song ? Hmmm, I guees that explains Jesse calling the music "scary" lifted from FBO

  16. Here's a perposterous claim : Source: Donovan's Friends; Issue 6 - circa 1989 SNAP - KCRW Radio, Los Angeles interview by Dierdre O'Donoghue S: "Hurdy Gurdy Man maybe responsible for an entire genre of music by virtue of the people playing with you, the musician in the background, from which sprang metal music." D: "When I wrote "Hurdy Gurdy Man", I thought, this is for Jimie (Hendrix) and my producer, Mickie Most, said "No, this is your song", so I said "Well, maybe Jimmy Page should play on it". Jimmy Page at that time was doing sessions. They hadn't formed 'The Band' yet, they were about to form. All around the "Hurdy Gurdy Man" sessions Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, the bass player on many of my recordings, especially "Mellow Yellow" he wrote the horn section, a band was forming around these sessions and Led Zeppelin, I believe, looking back, was formed around "The Hurdy Gurdy Man" sessions. A ballad form of song where I played it on guitar, a very heavy drum section and a very wild guitar sound and story telling. So if I formed Led Zeppelin I want to call upon those boys next year, I wanna record it with them next year! OK, I started Led Zeppelin and it goes like this. OK, I STARTED LED ZEPPELIN!!!" That's just a start.... It's in the book "Hurdy Gurdy Man", 2005 I believe where he first alludes to Bonham being at the sessions...not handy so can't transcribe But in his film biography Sunshine Superman:The Journey of Donovan I am told the Bonham reference is made as well. Anyone actually see this film and care to comment? OK time to search & destroy... I was very tempted to drive up to the quaint village of Woodtock for the Film's premiere back in Oct 2008 just to see if I can personally ask/confront him with his various claims as it has been a quite heatedly debated topic elsewhere for some time. more to come...
  17. I'm a traveller of both time and space at the moment, but I went return again I shall go thru my inventory and find the relevent passages/places/times where Donovan does indeed make claims of JP,JPJ *&* Bonzo being around for the HGM sessions. I don't think he ever outright says that they all appear on the final cut, but aludes to them all being present and taking part in the times. Again, could be pure Donovan spouting off making time, but the part that intrigued me from the get go was the UN-denial. And subsequent non retorts to every time Donovan continued to make this claim. the archives are your friend....just like the little smoke ; ) never empty the ashes.
  18. You seem to have forgotten how in his last book Donovan states the opposite of what you say here, and did so as recently as his appearances in Woodstock, NY ( the real Woodstock not Bethel ) where he was promoting I forget at the moment some film. And what about all his other jibberish about how he's resposible for Zeppelin?1 eh? And fwiw, when the book mention was first discussed elsewhere, a certain guitarist I am very fond of, did NOT disagree with Donovan. Too many shrooms or not, you'd think after all that talk, someone would have made a definite retort if none of Donovan's claims were true. ..just some other food for thought apprentice.
  19. Do I dare even attempt to post the , um, alternate take of this pics?!!! Nah, best not tempt fate!!! Steve do you have an anecdote as to why the tensions were so high that day ...enough to get Plant to take desperate measures to try to elevate the spirits?
  20. By some of us..OF COURSE!!! Bring it on! Thanks.
  21. "I should have had Alison do that last tour!"
  22. I call them apologists. And speaking of, in that case apologies to you. At least when I talk it's the simple truth.. sigh, you just can't win here...keep analyzing though I'm sure eventually your mysterious disappearing solo will show up. Amazing how noone can seem to accept simple equipment failure... that's not an excuse...you've all analyzed the vid to death. ahhh here's a conspiracy for ya... Jeff loaned that guitar to Jimmy ON PURPOSE knowing full well it was gonna f up and lead to worldwide embarassment for Jimmy and he, he alone... Jeff Beck would come out the greatest TKAR soloist ever!!!! they threw me out ..F them!!! I get the last laff Bwaaa haaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Good night ot some, good morning to the rest.
