  1. RIP to one of the kindest, gentlest, and funniest men, and one of the biggest Zeppelin fans, in the world. We are the richer for having known you, Levee.
  2. Many belated thanks for the birthday wishes! (Thanks for the tip, slave to zep. )

    And now you know why I haven't posted for months, and won't be posting again any time soon. It's a Led Zeppelin song, even if not performed by them, I put it in Led Zeppelin News because I couldn't think where else to put it. I thought possibly people might want to discuss how their music comes to be involved in this film, etc. Screw it.

  5. Jimmy is just one of four equal partners, the others being Plant, Jones, and Bonham's estate.
  6. From Lemon Squeezings' account of Plant's speech: Robert Plant says he's forever committed to Buddy Miller As Robert Plant picked up one of the big prizes at a Nashville awards ceremony last night, he did more than just thank his touring bandmate Buddy Miller: He pretty much committed himself to having Miller involved in all of his musical projects from here on out. Plant delivered his remark at the Americana Music Association's annual Honors and Awards ceremony, while accepting the Album of the Year award for his Band of Joy CD. Miller earned two awards of his own at the ceremony. B

  8. NASHVILLE, October 13, 2011 – Robert Plant's Band of Joy picked up album of the year honors, and Buddy Miller earned an Artist of the Year nod, during the Americana Music Association's 10th Annual Honors and Awards tonight at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium. The event celebrated a year of the best in roots music. It opened with a moving tribute to the late John Hartford, represented by an unaccompanied banjo and bolo hat side stage, followed by Buddy Miller, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas and Don Was performing "I'll Fly Away" in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of
  9. If you think 67 years was a "very long" life, then you're younger than I thought! In a perfect (or at least, cancer-free) world, he would have had decades more to live, and I wish he had. Those who said it was too soon had it right.
  10. Then you'd know that the Jackie De Shannon connection and most of the other points you made were mentioned in posts after the one you quoted. That was my point.
  11. Have you read the rest of the thread?
  12. My very best wishes to you and your family--not that you will ever forget those you've lost, but I hope things become a little brighter for you all in the months to come.
  13. Strider's thumb -- Fabulous stuff. I'm amazed you remember in such detail, too, most of that period is a blur to me now!
  14. He sang part of Nature Boy at the Arthur Lee benefit in 2006, too. Just throwing that out there!
  15. I was around in those days, and all I can say is that everybody I knew (literally) had the album, but I don't think I knew anybody who had the single. And the single version was truncated (without the middle section) for radio, anyway. It was the album as a whole that was so popular. Short answer, yes.
  16. Hi there, Samo, do you still have the two-tone hair?
  17. So guess who went with the wrong rumor? Glad you had such a great time, anyway.
  18. Oh yes, I agree, I was just pointing out that this wasn't (at least I don't think it was) the main performance of Sunshine Superman that night.
  19. I think this is the reprise at the end, not the main performance of it earlier in the show.
  20. Let's do that. (But I don't need to Google it, I grew up with it. And it wasn't a question of who's better than who. Like I said, I love Donovan's music, and have done since I first saw him on Ready Steady Go, got all his albums.) Has Jimmy really played that much, though? Put it this way, he hasn't played anywhere near me!
  21. from Tight But Loose Jimmy Page made his first live UK appearance in three years last night when he joined 60’s folk rock legend Donovan at his Sunshine Superman performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Dave Lewis files this exclusive on the spot report for TBL. In a move that mirrored the events of 21 years ago (see latest DL Diary entry), at very short notice yesterday afternoon I zipped in to London to attend Donovans’ Sunshine Superman performance at the Royal Albert Hall. The first half of the show saw the 1960’s folk rock legend running through some of his greatest hits
  22. Your poor thumb, Strider. But another terrific job. (Btw, I think that thing about Jimmy levitating probably actually happened . . .)
