  1. Technically, Robbie Gade's name is Robbie Polomsky https://www.tahoeonstage.com/genres/rock/magic-window-opens-new-view-of-creedence-artist/
  2. Page's 1960 Gibson Les Paul Custom 'Black Beauty' was purchased new in 1962 for £185.
  3. Lawyers shut that one down.
  4. Page stole the silver metal plates from Jim McCarty's bass drum head (or vice versa)!

  8. I hear that you have a keen fashion sense, too. I can assist in Deb's absence,
  9. http://www.winonapost.com/Opinion/ArticleID/32303/The-night-Led-Zeppelin-played-in-Winona-and-nobody-knew-it Good read. It references some of the audience leaving during The Yardbirds' set, too.
  10. The first photo is from December 4, 1966. Upon taking possession of the Tele from Beck, Page put the original white colored pickguard back on. The Tele looks worn. The next photo is from February 2, 1967. Page put eight reflective circle on the front of the Tele. Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett was seen in the recording session for the movie "Let's All Make Love" in January 1967 with a Telecaster with reflective circles on the front. I've always said that Page did this as a nod to Barrett, however, I have never found a link between the two, such as a live date where both bands played or a Pink Floyd date around the London area when Page was NOT on tour. The third photo is from April 13, 1967. This is the last dated photo I have of the Telecaster with the circles on it. The fourth photo is from July 22, 1967. This is the first dated photo I have of the Telecaster having been stripped down and had the Dragon painted on it. So, the transformation happened between April and July 1967. Photo five is an older, yet undated photo of the interior of the Hunt Armory. See the history on the structure at http://pittsburghpa.gov/district8/armory-history. Better photos of the space at http://rs.locationshub.com/location_detail.aspx?id=045-10000637&user=45&photopage=1 It is *plausible* in photo 5 (with the American flag) might show the same ceiling layout/infrastructure. On that last link, there is a picture of a classroom, with low, false ceiling tiles. I doubt The Yardbirds played in there.
  11. I'm not saying that spaces can't change their appearance in 40+ years, however, here is the interior of the Hunt Armory as of last summer. I just think with the lack of ceiling tiles/ceiling infrastructure, I can't buy that the Page picture came from the Hunt Armory.
  12. Paul St. John was in partnership with Pittsburgh-area promoter Rich Engler, so it may be the correct city........
  13. NOT from August 16, 1967. The Telecaster had already been repainted into its Dragon persona. This would have to be before April 1967. Any thoughts?
  14. He is a nice gentleman. I have enjoyed the email conversation we've had over the last few years.
  15. It was a charity event hosted by Pat Cash to benefit children's charities Goal and War Child.

  17. So funny! It is from May 27, 1972 in Amsterdam. Photo by Gijsbert Hanekroot.
  18. If you were not able to contribute to the original campaign (i.e.: PRE-ORDER A BOOK), you have a short time with a limited, SECOND campaign. Here is the link to the new campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/led-zeppelin-gear-part-deux/x/10908131#/story As always, I thank you for your support!
  19. http://www.redbull.com/us/en/bike/stories/1331728006730/bmx-street-rider-tyler-fernengel-inside-the-abandoned-silverdome Abandoned Silverdome Is A BMX Rider’s Dream Playground When driving around Detroit, many people would be shocked to see the amount of abandoned buildings scattered across the city. Over the past decade, the ‘Motor City’ has fallen behind bad times. Detroit was forced to file for the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history, estimated between $18-20 billion, back in 2013. Once a booming industrial powerhouse, Detroit is now a ghost town compared to what it was. Former home to the Detroit Lions, Wrestlemania III, Supercross and World Cup soccer games, the famed Silverdome was forced to shut down back in February of 2006. Up-and-coming professional BMX rider, and Michigan native, Tyler Fernengel is the last professional athlete to perform inside the Silverdome, even though he wasn’t performing for anyone other than a couple of cameras and himself. The abandoned Silverdome is a BMX rider’s dream! With endless rails, stairs and ramps–any rider could have endless hours of fun cruising around the stadium. The 19-year-old remembers the first and last times he was in the Silverdome, “I was 3 years old and had just gotten my first dirt bike. It may have been the first race I ever did – my dad entered me in the amateur Supercross races held every year at the Silverdome. Amateurs would compete they day before the pro Supercross. I raced there every year until I was 10 years old.” “The last time I was in the Silverdome was nine years ago. When I showed up for the shoot, so many memories were coming back,” said Fernengel, “just sitting in the tunnel – where you come out on the track and where the players would run out – I remember sitting there, years ago, with my dad and all the other kids. It brought back a lot of good memories. Being out on the field, it was crazy to think that there once was a motorcycle track there, every year, with all the fans, but now it’s nowhere near the same — it’s like a war zone.”
  20. Yes, and it's a BIG section. Tis true. I was rejected by 8 publishing houses. The best reply was that Led Zeppelin was not topical. And this was right after the O2 concert and by a publisher that published many books on artists and bands. Alas, this will get published. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/led-zeppelin-gear/x/10908131#/story is the place to go to order.
  21. And you can pre-order a copy starting tomorrow!
