  1. It's nice to know the Bonham estate still gets royalties
  2. Yeah well said, I certainly think Robert was finished after Bonzos death, I think that after the reported non appearance of Jimmy and John Paul Jones at Roberts sons funeral Robert just didn't want to do it anymore and questioned the brotherhood of the band, he even applied to be a teacher and would have walked away from the music business altogether. I feel great pride in how they finished, and reading the statement out in that December of 1980 think they did make the correct decision. Other bands have replaced band members and carried on, good luck to them, but I'm afraid there is and never was any replacing Bonzo, although being at the O2 on that fantastic night in 2007, Jason did a mighty big job and did his dad proud.
  3. Jason has posted a great pic today of him and Pat on Facebook
  4. I donated my autographed Led Zeppelin 3 album to Jimmy's charity (The ABC Trust) and it made £3100 back in 2002
  5. Ive got tattooed on my leg down my shin theses lines " It is the summer of my smiles, flee from me keepers of the gloom"
  6. I think the money should have been spent on Cancer hospitals etc around the country, that would have benefited everyone in the Uk and not just London. Where we live we have over 130 miles to travel to see a specialist and get treatment.
  7. So you were not, or wouldn't have gone to the O2 in 2007 then?
  8. Jimmy, you would make a lot more money releasing a CD of new music or even unreleased music you must have in your vaults than releasing a box set of photos i wonder how many concert recordings on film you have that we would love to see.
  9. I mean, can you imagine walking around London , and going into a market and Jimmy was there with Ross Halfin, and you were carrying your copy of the Genesis publication, and because you couldn't afford it bought the cheap un-autographed edition, then proceeded to say to Jimmy that you have been a massive fan for the last 35 years, could you please sign my book? and he replied no, you should have bought the autrographed copy for a couple of hundred quid more.
