  1. Thanks so much. Have you come across it yet? If so, let me know thanks, I'm still searching!
  2. Juliette Lewis features at the end of the movie talking about how Janis influenced her. Ellen Page I presume is a fan but I agree why is she involved? She's not good enough to speak on Janis at one of her film premiers! Why not get one of Janis's friends or musical contempories to speak. It's great that young performers like Ellen are spreading the word about Janis to this generation but I think someone else would have been a better choice to speak.
  3. Thanks very much for posting this great interview. Can't wait to see the film also. So much rare footage it's great this stuff is finally coming out. Also check out this great clip of talk show host Dick Cavett telling brilliant stories of his time hanging out with Janis going to dinner and the movies. He's here talking at a recent pre-screening Q&A with director Amy Berg.

  5. Great points Yeh Amy said she fell in love with Janis making this doc! Do you know where you get that Jungian book by Clarrisa Nikola?sounds fascinating. There's been lots of pre-screening talks before the documentary premieres but there seems to be no audience recordings which is unusual in this day and age ! and can't find it on youtube except for about 2 very short instagram clips like . Such a bummer coz over the course of them she had Janis's sister, Dick Cavett, Janis's boyfriend, D.A Pennebaker (interview is scripted online so at least got to read what he said! ) http://www.eyeforfilm.co.uk/feature/2015-11-04-amy-berg-in-conversation-with-da-pennebaker-about-janis-little-girl-blue-feature-story-by-anne-katrin-titze If you come across any let me know yhanks! there are 2 separate links below https://instagram.com/p/-DopWNndt9/https://instagram.com/p/-IpcLMzXIA/
  6. Can't find your other post about the vids sorry don't know what's happened! Yeh Jimmy played really well and looked happy to be up playing Rock n roll up on stage!
  7. Seriously how do you delete a post on here anyway?!
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. Here's a different angle, close to the stage video of Jimmy. You can see all of his playing so clearly, his speech and auctioning the guitar http://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/music/jimmy-page-and-seattle-rock-legends-electrify-emp/
  11. Here's a different angle close to stage video close up of Jimmy playing http://bcove.me/dz7o65or http://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/music/jimmy-page-and-seattle-rock-legends-electrify-emp/
  12. Update- Jimmy played guitar on 'rock n roll' and jammed with the band in Seattle tonight! So this is first time in 4 years he's been seen playing live! It's happened! Clip is on twitter.
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
  15. Jimmy's just walked the red carpet for these awards tonight. Picture is up on twitter.
  16. Great post. I think part of it is wanting to prove something to the naysayers. In one his led zep reissue interviews he said he wants to play live again to prove he's part of the "world cup" ! That's some pretty big expectations and demands he's putting on himself at 71 and after years of not doing shows but it's great he seems determined and has a twinkle in his weye whenever he talks about "seen to be playing live" . Whatever approach or genre he does will be interesting and creative. As someone mentioned on here I think one of his musical surprises could possibly be playing guitar accompaniment to poetry reading. He did this in the 60s.
  17. 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?
  18. This is great thanks. he so deserves this award. It's cool to see Robert back in the UK. Great to hear he and Jimmy bumped into eachother last week also.
  19. Thanks Patrycja you have great insights! I didn't hear about Jennifer Lawrence actually. Over the years there have been so many actresses linked to the role- Pink, Renee Zellweger and others I can't remember. Amy Adams confirmed this year that she is to play Janis Joplin but there is a lawsuit now so it's on hold at the moment. Again no one can play Janis and I agree with the potential for bad imitation. If they are going to do a bio then it's best as you say to get different people to portray her at different stages of her life. That would be creative and much more believable and interesting. They should definately have Mary Bridget Davies involved in that for the performance scenes. She plays Janis in the stage play "One night with Janis" and she has been praised as the best "Janis" imitator yet and was nominated for a Tony for it. Her and Katrina Chester are the best I've seen but again nobody can even come close! I haven't seen the play though as live nowhere near where it's on. I haven't seen the Heath Ledger film or Bob Dylan one and look forward to checking them out to see how that worked. Cate Blanchett is one of the greatest actresses. Janis could tell you the whole world in one note as she said. Work me lord Stockholm is one of my favourites and isn't shown as much the famous Woodstock one. No other singer has moved me so much. The pre screening talks have had phenomenal guests such as Dick Cavett and Amy Berg found her ex-boyfriend David Niehaus and he apparently spoke at the New York screening a couple of days ago. There's articles about it and he told some great stories about how she told off the Hells angels for wrecking her house and got them to do household chores and buy groceries haha. Only Janis! She was such a contradiction. She could be so strong but so vulnerable. What a fascinating and complex person. They found a letter from him the morning after she died in which he asked her to come meet up with him again and get back tgether and Amy said if she had known the letter was there she may not have shot up drugs and died. That was tragic!
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. There's a new documentary film on Janis and I thought this would been a great place to post any reviews if anyone has it. It hasn't come to my hometown yet and I will have to wait for the dvd. There's lots of rare footage never seen before including her singing and playing Bobby McGee and cooking in her house. It will be great to get a glimpse of her behind the scenes so to speak. It's a positive thing as it will introduce her to a new generation hopefully and keep her legacy alive. What are the impressions of it? She was such a ground-breaking and influential singer/performer and we certainly wouldn't have Robert without her. He said he was greatly influenced by her, saw her perform and that he loved her staccato phrasing of "baby baby!" Here's the trailer. What does everyone think of Janis?
  23. 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!
  24. 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?
