  1. Hi all, first post! I've noticed that Robert Plant has made a drawing to support The Big Draw charity. It got me wondering, what other artwork has been created personally by the band? So thought it might be fun if everyone shared their pictures of Led Zeppelin artwork, or examples of any other art the band made outside music. By the way the bidding on the Robert Plant drawing is only at £100 at the moment, so it might be a good opportunity for any passionate Zep fans! What do you think is the story behind this drawing?
  2. Thought this deserved its own thread to focus attention on such a worthy cause: Robert Plant, Tinariwen record exclusive tracks for British Red CrossIconic vocalist Robert Plant and critically acclaimed world music group Tinariwen record exclusive tracks for The Long Road, a ground breaking concept record, created with the British Red Cross, who support refugees and asylum seekers here in the UK and through the International Red Cross network.Robert Plant records new version of Elbow track ‘The Blanket Of Night’, which tells the tale of refugees attempting a treacherous journey to seek asylum in the UKWatch video interview with Robert Plant, discussing his involvement in The Long Road below. The Long Road will spotlight real-life experiences of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK and across the world. Brit Award winner Ethan Johns, who has worked with the Kings of Leon, Laura Marling and The Vaccines, is producing the record. The record will be released 4 March 2016 and is available to pre-order today. To pre-order, please visit: http://smarturl.it/LongRoad Robert Plant, who recorded a version of Elbow track’s ‘The Blanket Of Night’, which tells the tale of refugees attempting a treacherous journey to attain asylum in the UK stated: ““We have a worldwide international catastrophe - talking about it is one thing, doing something about it is another. The position we are in, it’s paramount we all do our best one way or another to help.”Grammy Award-winning group Tinariwen have also contributed to the record, recording a new track titled, ‘Silence’. Tinariwen’s founder Ibrahim Ag Alhabib was a refugee himself as a child and was forced to flee his home in Mali after his father was executed in the 1963 uprising in Mali.For more information about the project please visit: www.longroad.ukShow your support on social media with the hashtag - #thelongroadep http://www.music-news.com/news/UK/94097/Robert-Plant-Tinariwen-record-exclusive-tracks-for-British-Red-Cross
  3. So most of these have been posted already, but as they accumulate, I thought it would be good to have updates and news about initiatives that the Zep lads support all organized in one place. First up is Jimmy's patronage of the wonderful Outside Edge Theatre Company. An amazing and important arts outlet: “Outside Edge produces artistically excellent work that challenges and entertains audiences at the same time as making a real difference. Edge’s work with addicts – and the ways in which their performances awaken audiences and provoke debate – is quite simply stunning.” —Jimmy Page, company patron.

  4. Beautiful number, with a whole pallete of different renditions. One of my favourite ones is the first rough version on the LZIII deluxe version. It's just so damn raw. Who cares if it's sloppy, or an alternative take? My "hands down favourite version" is the BBC version from April 1971. It is tight (Bonzo and Jonesy in top form), Jimmy is not too flashy, but rather more presice and soulful in his playing, and last but not the least... Percy's on fire!!! Nuff said, I'd like to hear what y'all think?!
  5. Out of curiosity, if you guys had the ability to hear live performances of the instrumentals from TSRTS with Robert Plant singing the original melodies with his pre-73/late-72 vocal range, would you be interested? Primarily on songs like "Rock And Roll," "Black Dog," "Over The Hills And Far Away," "Stairway To Heaven," "Heartbreaker," and "Whole Lotta Love." Or do you prefer the augmented melodies that Plant sings with his more limited vocal range? I feel like TSRTS would be an infinitely more interesting and energetic show if Plant had still been capable of hitting the original melodies (while still ad-libbing in the same fashion that he was known for in their live performances). In my opinion, "Over The Hills And Far Away" died the day Plant lost his ability to sing the original melody, no matter how amazing the instrumentation. I just want to get a good feel for the consensus out there. Do you like the augmented vocal melodies? Or do you wish Plant were still able to hit those soaring high notes and sing the original melodies for those performances (and all subsequent tours as well)?
  6. The Golden God of rock and roll Robert Plant had and still does have one of rocks most powerful voices in rock but no one can sing like that forever so the point of this topic is to get all of your personal opnions on which year or years do you think Plants vocals were the best and worst? was it the early blues tinged five octave vocal range of 1969, the screaming out of this world vocals of 1970, the high pitched poweful uncompromising vocals of 1971, the banshee vocals of 1972, the lower inconsistent but still good vocals of 1973, the new post-surgery Raspy voice of 1975, the post flu tinged return to prowness vocals of 1977, the new powerful sound that coverd Knebwerth of 1979 or the matured vocals of 1980. All opnions are accepted and gladly heard
  7. Loved it from the first strum. Listen to beautiful closing song for "Love the Coopers" movie made in PittsburghWritten by Barbara Vancheri on Wednesday, 04 November 2015 10:47 am. This is the beautiful closing credits song from "Love the Coopers," filmed in Pittsburgh earlier this year (that's why the snow looks so authentic) and arriving in theaters Nov. 13. The song, written by Charles Duncan, is performed by Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. Here is the information from Republic Records about the music: REPUBLIC RECORDS will release the "Love the Coopers" official soundtrack album. Capturing the Coopers' holiday theme, the soundtrack includes the studio reunion of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss on their Christmas original "The Light of Christmas Day," their first recording since 2009's platinum-certified Grammy Award® Winner for "Album of the Year," Raising Sand. Otis Redding's "Merry Christmas Baby," Sixpence None the Richer's "Carol of the Bells," and also features seasonal classics from Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, and more. Debuting on Friday, November 13, 2015 through all digital retailers. The highly anticipated film opens in theaters everywhere the same day.

Nick Urata - Fear of Silence About LOVE THE COOPERS:When four generations of the Cooper clan come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday. http://blogs.post-gazette.com/arts-entertainment/mad-about-the-movies/45332-listen-to-beautiful-closing-song-for-love-the-coopers-movie-made-in-pittsburgh Quite the group of artists on that soundtrack list. ‘Love The Coopers’ Soundtrack, Aka Love Robert Plant & Alison Kraussby Patrick Hipes November 4, 2015 8:58am The soundtrack for CBS Films’ holiday comedy Love The Coopers won’t street until November 13, the same day the movie hits theaters, but this morning’s tease pretty much made my day: there’s a new original song (a Christmas one) on the album from Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, who in 2007 teamed for the Grammy-winning Album of the Year Raising Sand but haven’t recorded anything together since. It’s a coup for CBS Films, which is good at the care and feeding of the music in its films — the studio guided the cool folk soundtrack (OK, they had help from uber-producer T Bone Burnett) for the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis that featured music from Bob Dylan, Marcus Mumford and the Punch Brothers and of course the film’s stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Adam Driver and Justin Timberlake. The Coopers soundtrack, from Republic Records, also features two Dylan songs, as well as Nina Simone, Sting and Fleet Foxes among others. Love The Coopers centers on four generations of a family who come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration, and a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn the night upside down. Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Amanda Seyfried, Anthony Mackie and Marisa Tomei lead the ensemble cast helmed by Jessie Nelson. http://deadline.com/2015/11/love-the-coopers-robert-plant-alison-krauss-new-song-soundtrack-1201606941/
  8. Legendary New Orleans R&B musician Allen Toussaint, who penned such classics as "Working in a Coal Mine" and "Lady Marmalade," has passed away at age 77 after suffering a heart attack. New Orleans Musician Allen Toussaint Dies at Age 77ABCN.WS|BY ABC NEWS Thanks to the mighty Allen Toussaint for all the music and magic over the years. What a profound influence he had on modern music. One of the great original architects. LBOG is proud to have known and worked with him. And to have always had his songs on our set and records. Here is a shot from a "command performance" of us playing Allen his wonderful "Over You" with fellow disciple Robert Plant at a soundcheck in 2013, while Allen listened from the wings at the Mahalia Jackson Theater. His immaculate catalog of songs and record productions shall live forever.
  9. I dont think i have seen a thread on this so here goes. I have seen this picture around for a long time. There are others that go with this set, with Jimmy and Peter, but i cant find them right now. Anyway, What can anyone tell me about this photo? What year? Looks like 75. And who is that with him in the pic??? Where was this at??? This picture has always disturbed me a lil bit lol so i usually try to scroll past it lol but a different zep page posted it today and i decided to see what you all think here.... Disturbing right???? Or was it just them having fun??? All drunk and fucked up having a blast, in one of the rooms they had rented they found some dresses in a closet and started fucking around??? IDK what do you guys think???
  10. Okay, this is probably going to be a rather short thread but I often wonder what the context was for this photo? It was probably from a photo shoot or something right? Was Robert told to write this on the chalkboard? Was Jimmy there too? By "golden god", although unlikely, is Robert referring to himself? Any info would be appreciated! I've always loved this photo its pretty funny seeing Robert write that about his man Jimmy. I wonder how good of friends they REALLY were...
  11. I am curious of your opinions on Jimmy Page's best solo(s).
  12. Lead Belly at 125: A Tribute to an American Songster Saturday, April 25, 2015, 8:00 PM, Kennedy Center Concert Hall Lead Belly is one of the mainstays of American folk music.

This special one-night-only concert in collaboration with the Grammy Museum, Lead Belly at 125: A Tribute to an American Songster, celebrates the man and the music featuring many of today's top artists performing Lead Belly classics. The musical evening features Robert Plant, Alison Krauss, and Buddy Miller with Viktor Krauss as headliners, with special appearances by Alvin Youngblood Hart, Billy Hector, Valerie June, Shannon McNally, Josh White Jr., Lucinda Williams, and Dan Zanes, among others.

  14. So the hallowed performance space that is the 120-year-old Massey Hall is getting some much needed renovations. So many great artists have graced her stage and infused the hall with the memories and spirit of their performances, including Jason, Jonesy, and Robert. I've seen (among other shows) Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Jonesy and Robert there - a small but unforgettable list. Hopefully these much needed changes will enable her to be the shrine for another 120 years of legendary concerts. It will happen in two stages, the first of which is underway, and it will not affect shows. The second stage, however, will see Massey Hall's doors closed for between 18 - 24 months. The details are in the following articles. Some lowlights for me include getting rid of the exterior iron fire escape stairs (which I think add character to and maintain the iconic look), and highlights include more bathrooms (seriously, having to go all the way down to the basement??) and stained glass windows being restored and shown in full glory. Tech crews will no doubt appreciate a new proper loading dock, too. Whatever they do, may they be cursed if they damage the acoustics of this space. That and may the ghosts still feel welcome and at home (you think I'm joking...) Massey Hall launches first phase of $135 million revitalization project By Sean Mallen Reporter Global News TORONTO – The federal and provincial government announced Monday an investment of $8 million each for the first phase of the Massey Hall Revitalization Project. To be completed by 2019, the renovation will include the demolition of the Albert Building just to the south and the creation of new, modernized backstage spaces, along with new technical and production facilities and the hall’s first ever loading dock. Mayor John Tory said Toronto has not always done well in preserving its heritage structures.The seven-year $135 million private and publicly funded revitalization plan was approved by city council in 2013. “I am delighted to see this project move forward,” said Finance Minister Joe Oliver, who is also the federal minister responsible for the Greater Toronto Area. He noted that Massey Hall has not only hosted concerts by artists such as Gordon Lightfoot and Oscar Peterson, but also boxing matches, typing contests and chess tournaments. Michael Coteau, Ontario’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, recalled seeing his first hip hop concert at Massey Hall as a teenager 20 years ago. “It’s about bringing Massey Hall into the 21st Century,” he said in announcing the provincial government’s contribution. Toronto-based MOD Developments Inc. had announced in January 2012 the donation of 4,804 square feet of land immediately to the south of Massey Hall for the expansion. Officials say Massey Hall, which first opened in 1894, will remain open to the public for concerts and events during the first phase of the project. However, the building will be closed for a period of 18 to 24 months during the second phase as both the interior and exterior is restored, adding new and accessible space for both artists and patrons. http://globalnews.ca/news/1844700/mayor-tory-to-attend-launch-of-massey-hall-revitalization-project/
  15. Absolutely terrible book. It's got a very anti-Zeppelin tone, which is just bizarre, and the author (Dave Thompson) goes on and on multiple times about "Battle of Evermore" and how it is a band highlight - especially lyrically. In the foreword, the guy seems bitter that the Robert Plant: A Life book came out before his, and denounces every other book that has come out on Plant and/or Zep as worthless - especially with those that are sourced by people who actually know the subject(s) personally because most have an axe to grind. Then again, the press release touts Thompson as the "author of over 100 books on rock and pop culture." That's a red flag right away. There's lots of "writers" out there who churn out book after book on a variety or musical acts, and it always feels a bit disconnected and impersonal. The writing is usually stale, filled with 25 cent words and feels like nothing more than a way to make a quick buck on fans that will buy anything with the artist's name on it. Not-so-coincidentally, this comes out the week after Pagey's book in October.
  16. *****NOTE: I am new to this forum; I am NOT new to anything Led Zeppelin. Please, I ask you to ignore the first part of that sentence, and consider the second. Appreciated. ****** ***The Song Remains the Same Complete Re-EDIT On Way! *** [Note]: Individual evaluation only, not a means of piracy; this will NOT be distributed in any such way; again, my individual evaluations I've always preferred original TSRTS footage, be it a bootleg or 8mm. However, the actual viewing experience is rather limited by the subpar quality even terrible for 1970's cinematics. Honestly, the "film" portions of the film (I know, that sounds redundant, whatever) are pretty ugly. When one compares the close-up concert sequences re-filmed, the viewing experience becomes exhilarating. Add original panoramas of the actual crowd; the experience is timeless. And, of course, 1920 X 1080 resolution is absolutely stunning. The producers made their best intentions to create the best viewing experience possible during the time. The only reason I bring this thought up is because of a project I am working on to re-edit TSRTS (film) as close to original setlist as possible, while still retaining an apex entertainment factor. The fan-edition looks great, but I wish to make it even better. The plans are as follows: 1. Rip 2007 Blu-Ray release as a main video reference for best consumer-attainable quality as of 2013 2. Integrate my FLAC vinyl rips as much as possible to cover the abridged / shortened scene performances and restore original song length. 3. Somehow attain the best quality original footage / bootlegs. This includes the abandoned gaps in Black Dog, The Song Remains the Same, The Rain Song, etc. 4. The whole point of #3 is to eliminate psychedelic/fantasy sequences limiting attention on the band itself. The problem really arises from point no. 3; attaining footage to fill the gaps. I have some, but not enough. If anyone knows where to access the originals in best quality, that would be a great help! Plans for release are late December/early January 2013/2014, though this is extremely tentative and subject to change. ***This is for experimentation purposes only and NOT for personal gain, resale, or profit or mass-release and or reproduction; only individual evaluation.*** If any of you are of interest, please don't hesitate to inform me as soon as possible! Thank you for your support. -A/S
  17. Which do you think is better Stairway to Heaven or Kashmir?
  18. Thought I'd share something I've been working real hard on, something I was lucky enough to be able to take to Robert Plant's house for him to play with. I set up an amplifier company to make the best equipment I could! Thought people here would like to see.
  19. Hi fellow Zepheads. Another from my old personal video collection of Robert Plant and the Priory of Brion playing at Fairport Conventions Cropredy Festival back in 2000. Excuse the wobbly video but I think the band enjoy themselves on this one and I quite like what Kevyn Gammond plays on this ...and the way he leaps about! Anyway hope you enjoy it! http://youtu.be/0UMxlX7Yjg0
  20. June 21, 2013. The Summer Solstice. Robert Plant & the Sensationall Space Shifters rocked the Bayou Music Center in Houston earlier tonight. I'll write about the show another time but here's the setlist for the Houston show. I'll post whatever I can as soon as possible. For now, I'll just say it was a great show and we had a great view.
  21. Hi there fellow Zep fans. I was going through my old Hi8 video tapes and found this from 11th August 2000. Robert Plant (with the Priory of Brion) playing Hey Joe at Fairport Convention's Cropredy Festival, nr Banbury, UK. Just the one video angle from the crowd and a bit wobbly in places on the zoom ins and hasn't picked up the audio bass end brilliantly but it captures the live performance quite well I think and it was done with probably the best quality non pro camcorder of that time, Hi8, so visually not too bad - it's hopefully something Zep & Plant fans will enjoy so I'm dusting off the cobwebs and putting it out there to share. I think Robert was in good form that night but although the band was OK, and did interesting quirky arrangements, it doesn't have quite the guitar dynamics I come to expect and relish with Planty but I still enjoyed listening to it. http://youtu.be/71y2JverhEc
  22. Robert Plant will be performing once again at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (Jazz Fest) this year. April 26th, 2014. The line-up this year includes an extraordinary list of players, including Eric Clapton, Santana, etc. This will be Robert's third appearance since 2007. Can't wait! (schedule and tickets below) http://www.festivalarchive.com/event/new-orleans-jazz-heritage-festival-2014/
  23. On Friday the 4th of April 2014, Robert Plant played an unannounced show at Northleach Church in Gloucestershire. Close to Steve Winwood's home in the Cotswolds, Robert joined him to play some songs at the annual gospel concert: From The Heart. The proceeds of the show went to The Children's Society, Christian Aid and Open Door. Tickets cost £10 on the door. After the show, Robert Plant went to the local pub, which was packed out. Known songs played: Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down Nobody's Fault But Mine (with Steve Winwood) Twelve Gates To The City (includes several lines of In My Time Of Dying) Videos: Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down (Part) Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down (Full audio) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WeCFXTufU8 Nobody's Fault But Mine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkyvDNpGshk Twelve Gates To The City https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTlbWHJo_Wc
  24. Not a new performance, but a unique one that never got its own thread before. Robert Plant played a 2-hour unannounced set last year in New Orleans when he stopped by BJ's Bar with some of The Sensational Space Shifters. There have been four videos posted, although one has since been removed. No audio recording has been shared. (A fourth video taken by Travis Cleaver has since been removed) Guests including actor Craig Robinson arrived early in the night, claiming that Robert Plant would be playing (which was news to the bar staff). Sure enough, Robert Plant arrived at 11pm with some members of The Sensational Space Shifters, namely Justin Adams and Billy Fuller. Li'l Band O'Gold frontman C.C. Adcock, who parked his blue Cadillac nearby, was on the phone giving directions to Robert's group, who arrived shortly after he did. The bar tried to get him to come through the back entrance, but he insisted on arriving through the front door, apparently saying that he "wanted to see his people." At 11.30pm Robert took to the stage to sit in with Guitar Lightnin' Lee and his Thunder Band who were playing their second scheduled set of the night, filling in for King James and the Special Men. Robert was apparently on backing vocals, then moved to center-stage, eventually coming off stage at 1.30am. The bar doesn't play music past that time, so the bartender had to hold up a sign to get Robert to stop singing. Another account has Robert leaving the stage before the final song, then taking a video of the performance on his phone. Robert can be seen in some photos taking pics, although neither the video or those photos taken by him have surfaced. Known songs played: Hip Shake (without Robert Plant or The Sensational Space Shifters) Sugar Coated Love Got Love If You Want It Lonely Lonely Nights Hoochie Coochie Man I Can't Quit You Baby (part) Ramble On (part) Ooh Poo Pah Doo Let The Good Times Roll (without Robert, presumably Justin Adams on lead vocals) Press coverage: Offbeat, nola.com, Ultimate Classic Rock If anyone has more photos or videos of this night, it would be great to share them!
