  1. American singer-songwriter Julie Felix will be celebrating her 75th birthday with a concert at London's Leicester Square Theatre, this Saturday, June 15. Some preliminary informations indicate than John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin may be attending, perhaps joining Ms. Felix on stage to play mandolin. "I will be singing quite a few songs on my own, but sharing the stage with me will be my good friend Madeline Bell of Blue Mink, "Jesus Christ Superstar" star Steve Balsamo and Rosalie Deighton from the Deighton family. As I mentioned before, The Avalonian Free State Choir from Glastonbury will be coming up from Somerset to sing a few songs with me. Hopefully John Paul Jones (of Led Zeppelin fame) will be able to come and play mandolin". (Source: http://www.juliefelix.com/) Earlier today Ms. Felix tweeted: I'm so happy! Just learned my friend #JohnPaulJones and his family will be at the concert Saturday. My best birthday present!!!
  2. Hi all, I've been getting into transcribing some of JPJ's solo stuff recently, the guy is my absolute hero on the bass and figured it was about time someone deciphered his solo stuff - so here's my interpretation on his groovy, improvised solo on 'Bass N Drums' taken from Zooma... figured this, a Zep forum, would be as good a place as any to share it! Planning on putting a few more up in the future too. Hope you enjoy and feel free to share it wherever if it does indeed tickle your fancy?! Check it out, let me know what ye reckons... Big love to JPJ. Cheers, S.
  3. Over time I have become increasingly convinced that Kashmir is one of the great masterworks of Western Civilization. Yes I am a proud Zeppelin fanboy given to flights of hyperbole. Getting to know this great song is like peeling back the layers of an onion. One consistent thread for me with this song is the deft, subtle nature of the arrangement for strings and horns. The more I listen to it, the more maddening it is to precisely separate which instruments are weaving in and around the drums, bass, and guitar. Being a big Beatles fan, I had an epiphany a few years ago when I realized that one of the crucial aspects of their creative hot streak between June 1967 and November 1968 was the marrying of rock music and instruments (oboe, clarinet, etc.) most commonly associated with orchestras. The epiphany came when I realized that someone (George Martin?) had to physically hand-write the scores that would then be played by other musicians. A bold blend of rock and classical instrumentation. But someone had to write the scores. If this individual was Martin (as I doubt any Beatle had the ability to write musical notation at that time, though I could be wrong), then his stature grows even larger to me as a presence with this band. Which leads me to Kashmir. Searching the archives here for an answer to who wrote the sheet music to Kashmir, I came across this entry a few years back: “12.) Regarding Kashmir and the ghost track of the orchestra parts. Has there been any information regarding the names of the session players for the left over ghost track that remains? Is the handwritten sheet music put together by JPJ that was dated November 10, 1976 been located since it’s sale? Any idea who Chris was who drew up that sheet music?” I was unable to find an answer to this individual’s question. So, I wonder: 1) what is this “ghost track,” exactly? 2) was the sheet music actually written by Jones? 3) who sold the sheet music, and to whom? 4) who is Chris? Hey Steve A. Jones, can you help a brother out? Anyway, a great use of strings. Bonham and Plant always blow me away. While on the topic of the instruments involved in the recording of this track, I wanted to pose a second question. Is it a mellotron that is heard in the left channel between 3:25 and 4:21? And also in the right channel from 6:43 to the end? To me, Jones’ parts here are crucial to the middle-eastern feel of the song. While on the topic of the mellotron, I found this recently. It contains photos of Jones’ mellotrons: http://www.reocities.../mellotron.html I searched the archives and found that this page has not yet been posted or referred to. Third and final question. Is the distortion on Bonham’s single-stroke snare roll at 8:07 the same synth that was used on his timpani/kettle drums on the 1977 tour? If no one can help with the orchestral instrumentation, I might send Kashmir on disc to my uncle, who was Costa Rica’s symphony conductor in the seventies. I am sure he can sniff out what is buried in there. Thanks for the help. I love Kashmir. One of my favorite songs by any band. In The Light since 1972. Trampled Under Foot.

  4. We have just completed a brand new fine art portfolio of prints taken by renowned photographer Herbie Greene in 1969 in his studio in San Francisco. Here is a link to the dedicated webpage of the Led Zeppelin Portfolio. Many of these photos have not been seen before and are intimate portraits of the band just before their first US tour in 1969. http://ledzeppelinportfolio.comLedZeppelinPortfolioPR.pdf

  6. These have never been published anywhere in the past 37+ years.... Thanks, Sam for archiving them!! I wish I would have had a better camera than a crappy little Kodak 110 camera with a single roll of 24 images for Houston 1975...Ahh,. the "old days" What I would have given to have had my Nikon! Time to share them - these are for DavidZoso, to add to his mighty archive....! ENJOY L.Z.F.!!
  7. During a recent gig at The Village Underground, Howe Gelb played songs off his new album "Tucson". He was joined on stage by K.T. Tunstall and John Paul Jones. There´s a review of the event on the Italian website of Rolling Stone, written by Chiara Meattelli. "Magia e caos: Howe Gelb & John Paul Jones" http://www.rollingst...aul-jones/49472 (In Italian). photograph: Chiara Meattelli: http://www.rollingst...aul-jones/49472
  8. Hats off to Led Zeppelin are very proud to announce that from 2012 our promotion and management will be handled by Bandwagon Productions and Warren Grant. Warren’s experience in the music industry is second only to his father, the late Peter Grant, legendary manager of Led Zeppelin, who rewrote the book on band management. Having spent several years working in many areas, Warren has decided to return to music promotion and sees Hats Off To Led Zeppelin as the perfect band to return with. Not content with being Europe's best and most authentic tribute to Led Zeppelin, Hats off to Led Zeppelin have managed to go one step further and been taken under the wing of Warren Grant, son of the legendary Led Zepplein manager Peter Grant. Warren went to see the band perform last year in Bournemouth, close to his home, and was so impressed with the band he decided to approach them about joining forces. Warren said 'Hats off to you guy...keep up the outstanding work, you really did the band justice' Come and see the band on tour all over the UK and beyond. www.hatsofftoledzeppelin.co.uk April 27th De Pul, Uden, Netherlands. 28th the Rock Temple, Kerkrade, Netherlands.

  9. I wish Led Zeppelin would have played Custard Pie live because I would really be interested in seeing Robert’s mannerisms throughout the song… its all such a clever innuendo
