  1. Thanks so much. Have you come across it yet? If so, let me know thanks, I'm still searching!
  2. Seriously how do you delete a post on here anyway?!
  3. Not remotely paranoid- just being careful as got the impression from this forum that posting any youtube links were often taken down. Thanks good to know that's not the case it's only the Hendrix copy police haha
  4. Yes Page is nostalgic when it comes to Zep. On another but similar line of thought I came across a recently uploaded press conference on youtube of Page and Plant '94 in Japan and the gist of it is Robert says his heart wasn't really in Zep but that his heart is in the Unledded project and you can see Jimmy is visibly upset and taken back by this and a few mins later Jimmy obviously feels the needs to address this and says his heart has always been in the music right the way from Zep to the present (at the time ) and has never wavered from the beginnign to Unledded. I feel both had two entirely different experiences in Zep. I feel for Jimmy it meant everything to him and he was much older and more experienced wheras for Robert he was a kid when he was in Zep and still searching and didn't find himself til later. It's kind of sad. Youtube it as I don't want copyrightist to take it down!
  5. The only one that comes to mind currently having a great comeback at 72 years old is Fleetwood mac singer/musician Christina McVie. She retired for 16 years and the rest of the band were shocked when she said she wanted to come back and tour in 2014. They thought it would never happen that she would want to return so miracles do happens! I think at some point in the next few years Jimmy will do something. It would have been nice if Jimmy had done more solo albums and established a strong solo career. I wonder why he didn't do a follow up in the nineties and instead went with Coverdale?
  6. Great insights and especially the come in at odd angles is illuminating indeed. Thanks but I understood all that then actually. I guess I was looking for more of a hidden meaning in what Robert was saying haha but it seems he was being more straightforward than I thought! Robert was saying that his cavalier attitude brings him a lack of freedom I thought and I couldn't really follow what he was trying to say. This lack of freedom of Jimmys that Robert talks about is intriguing and I thought maybe someone could expand on it on what they think he means?
  7. Great interview never heard before t4p. Interesting views on Jimmy starting At 20.34 mins Robert says that Jimmy doesn't see an importance to promote own songs, handle own affairs, manage own career so Jimmy doesn't have that freedom that Robert. He says that Jimmy has a cavalier attitude and that his awareness needs to be sharpened so he can see how he's being seen. What is he saying exactly? That Jimmy doesn't handle what affairs and what was Jimmy doing that caused him to have a lack of freedom? Was he saying Jimmy needed to create a better image in the public eye?
  8. Yeh Jimi on his 1970 last tour especially in Berlin, Norman and a bit earlier in Baltimore were incredible and to think he played like that when he was exhausted and sick with a cold. His best music was ahead of him I'm convinced. He trusted the wrong people, he was a vulnerable and reckless guy in his last days hanging out in London and mixing pills. I Didn't know I couldn't post vid otherwise at chance of being removed wouldn't have done it but it won't let me edit and remove it. Where has the edit button gone? haha
  9. Thanks, I remember watching this on youtube when it first came out. It was a great clip and interview of him italking about his favourite guitars n the guitar shop and would love to see it again. Would you mind posting the link? Not sure if it's been taken down but I can't find it.
  10. The question of what might have been for Hendrix is incredible. I think if he had made that session with Gil Evans he would have had a great mentor for Jimi. He could have taught him to write and arrange and once he studied this imagine where he could have taken the form. Jimi was a game changer like Miles and Coltrane and I think he would've been the leading person in the 70s. It's the biggest loss in music and I think if had overcome his problems with management and stress etc.. he would have possibly been the greatest of all time. He was that good. This was one of his last performances and he was playing on another level in that last year. At 8.30mins it's like a trapped beast and then that monstrous sound at 8.50. Most intense note ever played!
  11. Huge fan of Hendrix. My dad had tickets to his last tour of Britain but then it was cancelled due to Billy Cox's breakdown. My Dad saw Led Zep at University and said they were incredible. remembers Whole lotta love as the best song of the night! It's interesting to watch Led zep interview on September 19th and Jimmy's first response on hearing death of Jimi was it's a tragedy. For having not seen him live he certainly knew that he was incredible and really loved Jimi. He called him the best in later interviews. I often feel they were kindred spirits in the studio and the love of improvising live. Has anyone hear seen Hendrix live? What was the main impression you got?
  12. Really looking forward to new music whatever he decides to do!
  13. Hendrix for sure. What he did was unique and no-one channeled themselves through the guitar like him. Page and others were amazing guitar players but Hendrix sounded otherworldly and an extra dimension to his playing. Machine gun live 1970 is unparalleled.

    Hot pics of Jimmy

    I love the way Jimmy takes public transport and leads a relatively normal life outside of music!
