  1. We're about to be overtaken in the next few hours by whitney houston and janet jackson. They're simply outvoting us, no doubt using automated voting scripts. Whitney houston vote is currently 36 votes a second. Not too subtle are they.
  2. Jason Bonham to perform at The Roxy Theatre on 2 January, as part of the Ducati All-Stars: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=132338 Meg
  3. Not a chance. Michael Jackson's current voting rate is 84 votes per second, non-stop now for the last 10 hours straight. No artist has a hope in hell of grabbing the top two spots bar MJ. The best we can hope for is to just make it to the final.
  4. That would be 300 million units worldwide. 30 million units for an album worldwide is not unheard of if you consider that Led Zeppelin IV was 30 million plus in the US alone. Don't forget the figure also includes the box sets and Mothership which sold a bucketload, so it's actually more than 10 albums.
  5. Robert Plant's handwritten lyrics to 'Please Read the Letter' have sold on auction to benefit the Americana Music Association http://www.bravewords.com/news/128622 Meg

  8. For what it's worth, for a very dubious poll, here are the final results for this round just completed: 1. Rolling Stones 72.3% 2. Led Zeppelin 15.9% 3. Elvis Presley, 7.9% 4. Concert for Bangladesh 1.7% 5. Village People, 1.6% 6. Johnny Cash 0.52% 7. Fleetwood Mac, 0.05% 8. Bruce Springsteen, 0.049% 9. KISS, 0.02% 10. The Who, 0.01% The top-five finishers move on to the next round. Hardly anyone voted for The Who. Voting restarts again on Thursday 3pm (EST) Meg
  9. Not sure about the US. I know some programmes can't be heard in Australia. Meg

  11. Recently released papers from the BBC Archive reveal how Led Zeppelin left a panel of light entertainment experts dazed and confused when they applied to record a radio session in 1969. (Includes a copy of the original BBC audition report). http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/music/article6959424.ece Meg
  12. ABC News program "20/20," reveals American Royal Arts website featured misleading pictures of band members signing guitars. Jimmy Page has stated through an attorney for the band, George Fearon, that his supposed signature on one Led Zeppelin guitar shown on the ARA Web site was a forgery. http://www.abcnews.go.com/2020/phony-rock-photos-collectors-singing-blues/story?id=9226150&page=1 Meg

  19. Music charity 'Memories in Music' is holding a VIP tickets giveaway contest to the premier of the film It Might Get Loud in London at the Hammersmith Apollo on 15th December. Donations to Casa Jimmy. http://memoriesinmusic.com/contest.html Meg
  20. You said 'if'. I don't think anyone here has been stuffing the ballot boxes nor should they, the same can't be said with that RS fan who has openly admitted to doing it. I have never condoned 'cheating', do you?
  21. How is LZ stuffing the ballot? They have less than 1.7% of the vote. Rolling Stones has 88%. How is 1.7% stuffing?
  22. A rolling stones fan called 'Mantasack' is claiming cheat scripts have been posted on a LZ forum. I don't recall seeing any. http://shidoobeewithstonesdoug.yuku.com/topic/21771/t/The-Greatest-Madison-Square-Garden-Show-of-All-Time-VOTE.html?page=7
  23. 2009 At the Movies Annual Viewers Poll. It Might Get Loud is a nominee. Poll closes in February 2010: http://www2b.abc.net.au/votecentral/Client/Login.aspx?E=19 Meg
  24. Deborah Bonham to perform at Miller's Club, Kirkby, on Thursday 10th December: http://www.chad.co.uk/musicnews/Blues-star-at-Kirkby.5886211.jp Meg
  25. The poll is not the actual focus of the exercise. Note the clickable banners directly underneath and next to the 'Vote Again' button, advertising 2009-2010 season tickets and other MSG sponsors. They don't really care I suspect, if it increases the number of people to buy up season tickets during the voting process. Besides which there have been hints dropped on the comments board by a guy who seems to be running the website, that he's a Rolling Stones fan.
