  1. Hey gang. Just here for one of my increasingly infrequent stops to check out what's new in the world of Zep. I'm keeping busy, and my long absences will be well worth it eventually, I promise. I've got some excellent projects in the pipeline, including not 1 but 2 Zeppelin related ones! They are moving along at snail's pace, which is typical of the industry, but hopefully we will get there some time soon! Speaking of which, does anybody have any personal recollections of the Zeppelin tour down under in 1972? Looking forward to the CCE show at the Enmore - they are moving on to bigger and better venues it seems, should be great. Although I love the intimacy of the Basement gigs too.
  2. Yeah Jack is great - I have both Raconteurs/Saboteurs albums and love what he's doing since White Stripes.
  3. Yeah the movie last night was fantastic. Jimmy is so awesome! What surprised me though was how funny he is too. Hi-5 was excellent, finished a few weeks ago. Making the most of unemployment now lol.
  4. Hey gang. I have returned! Couldn't make it on Wednesday, but I'm going to see It Might Get Loud tomorrow night. Looking forward. Thanks to slave for letting me know it was on. Hopefully I will be around here more often in the near future. Cheers
  5. Hey gang, Hope everything is well with you all. I've been very busy working on my latest show (hi5) show it to the grandkids. Hope there is a gig I can meet u all soon. Cheers
  6. I am hoping to pick myself up a couple of tix in the next week or so. Sorry I havn't been around much, been busy, and starting a new job next week on a show for channel 9. Hope you are all doing OK.
  7. He's just a shit-stirrer, he is like that about almost everywhere he travels and all nationalities.
  8. Ross Halfin is in Sydney. Be on the lookout....
  9. That's a little suspicious - a dentist co-owning a restaurant that sells food that damages people's teeth.....
  10. I have Storm's book, he is an amazing visual artist but also a good writer.
  11. Generally speaking, from 1972 onwards, Zeppelin never had a support act.
  12. If I'm not mistaken, this was originally posted on another board by PhotonBeam, who was the laser operator on the 1977 tour?
  13. Yes, it's not a cheap venue at all - no tap beer etc
  14. Naa, got tix a few weeks ago but wasn't sure I was going to be able to make it.
  15. Good news guys, I will be able to make it tomorrow nite. Looking forward to meeting you all there.
  16. Its got the off-beat reggae thing going on....But you're right, its not proper reggae as we might say Bob Marley is reggae, it's a different sound to that.
  17. There is/was a rumour Barrington Colby was a pseudonym. Jimmy did go to art school, remember. I have never seen any art of Jimmy's, aside from his hand-painted Tele.
  18. They play some "Unledded" versions of the songs, eg Kashmir - as well as live versions - eg Immigrant song is more like HTWWW than the studio version. It's a great night, not cheesy, the don't dress up and pretend to be the band, they are just damn good musos playing damn good music.
  19. Following up on the advice I gave in the other thread - you need to do everything you can to pursue art as a full-time career. You have excellent skills already and tremendous potential. If it means moving away from your home town or doing whatever you have to do, you should (when ready and able).
  20. I have seen photos of people leaving Vodka bottles at JB's grave...I hope that means they are giving it up.
  21. When Almost Famous came out, my mum told me I reminded her of William. But as you do I sort of thought, 'yeah right, mum.' But I have had it independently from other people as well, so there you go.
  22. Brilliant. I was working off memory so thanks for finding the real deal.
  23. You can actually edit posts if you make a mistake/typo whatever. In the bottom right corner of each post you will see 2 buttons "Reply" and "Quote". When you look at your own posts there will also be and "Edit" button.
  24. Well who can guess as to the dynamic of their relationship? I am sure that with some business decisions, things are handled by management, which is not uncommon. One of the most important functions of an agent/manager is to insulate their client from potentially stressful or embarrassing situations. They now have different representation which apparently made the O2 negotiations more complex. However, I do remember in a recent (last 10 years) interview, Jimmy was asked if he and Robert still talk, and Jimmy's response was something like; "The other day I was getting the family ready to go out for the day and the phone rang. It was Robert on for a chat and I said 'Christ, Robert I've got everybody in the car, can't talk now'." He went on to say they talk fairly regularly. I have noticed recently that there is a phenomenon where people think that having an 'entourage' is a desirable thing. Having 'people' to do things for you had become the goal, and not a product of success. But it's a drag, it's not a healthy way to be. RP and JP are good mates, they both did their best work with each other, and have known each other for decades through all sorts of trials and good times. I very much doubt they would insulate themselves from each other in that way.
