  1. Whatever you say, AA...been a dozen years since Freezer asked me to find out if you were the guy who leaked the info to TCOLZ about his Baton rouge '77 recording, and then you were outed over at the Hotel for being the TCOLZ shill. Like Bobby De Niro said in Goodfellas: you don't know who I am, but I KNOW who you are...
  2. Same here, especially given AA's history withing the Zeppelin community...
  3. Not while he's still alive, that's for sure! 😂
  4. Four hours on Zeppelin would certainly cover a lot of ground...like, everything.
  5. I'd love to find a decent copy of the April 28 Cleveland show on vinyl that I wouldn't have to take out a second mortgage to be able to afford...
  6. I just watched the Scorsese-produced four hour (!) Long Strange Trip Grateful Dead documentary, done in the style of the Tom Petty Runnin' Down A Dream doc or The History Of The Eagles. But watching the Dead documentary, I was thinking, "This is the kind of thing Zeppelin needs." Maybe not four hours, necessarily, but something comprehensive and that doesn't whitewash (or ignore) the more unsavoury aspects of the band's history. It is LONG overdue.
  7. Proving once again that the old Hollywood adage still holds true today: there is NO such thing as bad publicity... Aerosmith, as dysfunctional as they ever were 😂 And these guys are in their fucking seventies, fer chrissakes...and I thought the Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young blowup a couple years back was the epitome of old immature rockers...the Bad Boys From Boston put CSNY to shame!
  8. Last shows Zeppelin played in America, plus Bonham, Cole, Bindon and Grant got into a major brouhaha with Bill Graham and some of his guys at some point during the first Oakland gig- many punches were thrown, and then Graham more or less forced the band to do the second show under duress- they were contractually obligated to perform a show they rightfully didn't want to do (given the previous day's events) for a promoter who wanted to throw the band's drummer and management in jail for assault (not to say Bill Graham wasn't justified, mind you). The Oakland '77 shows are more infamous than famous, I think...the July 23 show is pretty iffy in places (they almost collapse completely during the start of Page's solo in "Ten Years Gone") but the 24th performance isn't too bad considering the circumstances.
  9. Them Montreal '75 tapers were some serious music fans...they clearly knew their shit when it came to Zeppelin and Prog Rock in general, I mean, they knew what a Mellotron was fer chrissakes!😂
  10. Amazing that, in spite of the many variations, 1st gen source tapes, etc that have popped up over the years since, Winston's version of the June 21 show -at least fifteen years old by now- is still considered the best version. Winston's got the touch, no question about that...it's the only version I've ever needed!
  11. When you read Joey Kramer's whingefest of a memoir, it's pretty fuckin' obvious him and Tyler have never gotten along. Steven Tyler fancies himself a drummer, but he fancied himself a frontman more and realized he couldn't be both. Enter Joey Kramer. The story goes, when Aerosmith was recording Nine Lives and Kramer's father died, necessitating Joey's departure from the sessions, they brought in Steve Ferrone to pinch hit on the drums -ostensibly so Kramer could replace the parts on his return- but they left Ferrone's drums on the record. That's more or less an open secret... Fact, and it's been proven time and time again over the last fourty years: the only irreplaceable member of Aerosmith is Steven Tyler. He's probably been looking for an excuse to oust Kramer from the band for decades and Joey's health issues gave him the excuse he needed at last.
  12. Who are the "W.T.H. Twins", I wonder...anybody we know?
  13. Steven Tyler and Joey Kramer have famously never really gotten along...Kramer reckons Steven always wanted to be the drummer. Other than the fact that I find it fucking amazing that these five lunatics are all still alive, yeah, stick a fork in 'em...their last album was one of the biggest pieces of shit I've ever heard by anybody, I more or less got off the Aerosmith train after Pump...
  14. This seems kinda fucked up, even by Aerosmith's dysfunctional standards: https://globalnews.ca/news/6446042/drummer-joey-kramer-sues-aerosmith/ Longtime Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer has filed a lawsuit against his bandmates after claiming they have excluded him from playing alongside them at some of their upcoming performances. The legal documents were filed in Plymouth Superior Court in Massachusetts last Friday, according to a representative of Kramer. If successful, Kramer’s suit will enable him to play with Aerosmith again as they are recognized as both MusiCares Person of the Year and the Grammys’ Lifetime Achievement award winners over the course of the weekend. Though the 69-year-old musician has been a member of the legendary rock band since its formation in 1970, he was forced to sit out of Aerosmith’s then-upcoming Deuces Are Wild residency shows in Las Vegas, Nev., after suffering minor injuries in the spring of 2019, as shown in the legal filing which was obtained by Global News. AP Photo/Jeff Christensen, File AP Photo/Jeff Christensen, File While Kramer took time off from touring to recover, his drum tech, John Douglas, was asked to fill in for him and play the residency shows. Later that fall, Kramer claimed he was ready to return to his drum throne and rock out again with Aerosmith, however, the suit alleges he was rejected by the band as a result of some inconsistencies in their overall contract.

He wrote: Kramer claimed that if he were ever to be considered by his bandmates as an adequate drummer for Aerosmith again, he was “required to audition for [his] own job” and “demonstrate that [he could] play at ‘an appropriate level’” or “better than [his] temporary fill-in.” “I did everything they asked,” wrote the drummer, admitting he videotaped himself auditioning for the band again. “ jumped through hoops and made both a recording of playing along solo to a recent live recording of the band,” he continued. “One I had never heard before.” “In Aerosmith’s 50-year history, no other band member has ever been subjected to this scrutiny let alone be asked to audition for his own job,” said Kramer. “But I did it, and I did it well.” Furthermore, Kramer pointed his finger at his bandmates claiming that they, along with their attorneys, would “likely attempt to disparage [his] playing and claim that [he is] unable to play the drums right now. Nothing could be further from the truth,” he concluded.

It read: The Steven Tyler-fronted band alleged that Kramer had “waited until the last moment” to accept their invitation to join them at rehearsals ahead of their big Grammys performance. In this April 8, 2014, file photo, Steven Tyler, left, and Joe Perry of Aerosmith perform at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, Calif. “We would be doing a disservice to him, to ourselves and to our fans to have him play without adequate time to prepare and rehearse,” the statement continued. “Compounding this, he chose to file a lawsuit on the Friday night of the holiday weekend preceding the Grammys with total disregard for what is our limited window to prepare to perform these important events.” Aerosmith concluded: “Given his decisions, he is unfortunately unable to perform, but of course we have invited him to be with us for both the Grammys and our MusiCares honour. We are bonded together by much more than our time on stage.” READ MORE: Rush’s Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson thank fans for ‘outpouring of love’ following Neil Peart’s death Furthermore, Kramer addressed his dedicated supporters, writing, “I hope our fans can understand that all I’m trying to do is get back to playing with the band that they love — and that’s Aerosmith with all five original members. The greatest magic and success of Aerosmith happens when all the band’s founding members are together in the house.” “To be removed from my rightful place on stage to celebrate our success — a success that acknowledges my own life’s work — is just plain wrong.” 1:5022-year old Aerosmith fan from Norwood gets to share the stage with the band 22-year old Aerosmith fan from Norwood gets to share the stage with the band “Ever since I was 14 years old,” continued the drummer, “I had a set of drumsticks in my hand and a passion to create music. Being prohibited from playing with a band that I have given 50 years of my life to supporting, is beyond devastating.” Whether it’s with Kramer or not, you can catch Aerosmith’s Grammys performance live on Sunday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m. ET.
