  1. *****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
  2. One afternoon, in the winter of 1972, I got a call from an excited Ramzan, the owner of Slip Disc, the happening discotheque and live band show place of our time. He told me that Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin were in town and are to visit the Slip Disc and perform that evening so please get there as early as I could. If only you could imagine the excitement and turmoil that took place for the next few hours in the life of this fledging young Rock singer! A hundred telephone calls later I was on my way to distant Colaba from our bungalow in Chembur and reached the Slip Disc to find it almost full. And this was a good four hours before their scheduled arrival! Good news sure travels fast and as we waited for the arrival of our Rock Icons, we prepared for their performance with a last minute check on the music equipment available. Those were the tough days of import control and we had really poor stuff that was scrounged and smuggled with the help of relatives from abroad and rich benefactors. We were hoping that this would not mar the enthusiasm of the Rock Superstars who were used to the very best! As the next few hours slowly crawled and H hour arrived, the Slip Disc began to burst at the seams and the crowd was getting difficult to manage, It was weird seeing a discotheque with no music playing, filled to capacity with people just waiting for the stars to arrive and the excitement levels were at danger levels. We received minute-by-minute information about the progress of their arrival from the Taj Mahal Hotel where the duo was staying. Fortunately it was just a hop skip and a jump away and Ramzan was in their room waiting to escort them to his noisy club on Bombay’s waterfront. Just as it seemed that the wait was getting unbearable, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page made their entrance into the discotheque to the spontaneous applause of their crazy fans myself included. The next hour was like a blur to me especially after all these years, as just too much seemed to be happening. As Robert and Jimmy were busy signing autographs for the crowd that descended on them, for a brief instance, I could not help but feel a sense of disappointment on seeing my idols in person. I had imagined a very strong male and macho presence especially from the tall Plant and their music exuded such incredible energy, yet both of them were so soft-spoken and almost effeminate in their behavior! Their apparent frail exteriors made me more aware of the thousands of misconceptions that we must have been carrying around with us. Don’t forget we did not have television at that time and we were always craving for information. We only had their music to inspire us and we were using our imagination to carve out the entire personas of our idols! Soon these thoughts were out of my mind as it was time for the duo to perform. It had been decided that Xerxes Gobhai, the talented bassist from the Human Bondage and Jameel Shaikh, the drummer from my band would back them but nobody had any idea what they would perform. There was just no time to get into any details, as anything would do for us music-starved fans and before we knew it, Led Zeppelin, Bombay style were announced to the audience. Jimmy and Plant got into the groove from the word go as they launched into Rock and Roll, the hit from Led Zep 4 and the audience went wild! They followed that with an extended blues where their stay in Bombay seemed to feature a lot. Black Dog followed and before we knew it was all over. They must have been on stage for a maximum of 25 minutes and we savored every second of that. At that time, Led Zeppelin were on top of the charts and it was a great opportunity for us to see at least two of them perform live in Bombay and they were just a few feet away! In later years, the story of the Plant/Page visit took on an unbelievable aura around it and everybody seemed to have different recollections of that night… myself included. But I guess that is what legends are made of. Today it even seems ridiculous as it to how much hysteria a couple of Rock Stars could generate! Yet this was the barometer with which you could judge the passion with which we loved our music. Please, keep the fire burning and Rock on!

  3. Hi there, I wonder if you could help me find out a little more about the image below of Robert Plant from 1984. My late sister in law was a HUGE fan, and since she passed away suddenly and unexpectedly last year, we never got the chance to ask the history of the attached. It's a BIG limited edition print measuring 82 cms x 61 cms It's signed by Robert Plant "To Tony - broad shoulders....smart moves. Love Robert" (she was called Clare, so not sure who Tony might be)?? It's super hard to read the artist's signature, I've attached a close up of this in case it helps, and it also shows that this was 4/10 in the print run. If you could shed any light on this at all, I'm sure my partner would love to hear. A long shot I know, but I thought it worth an ask. Huge thank you for your time, and I'd love to hear from you .
  4. A friend passed along this photograph of Robert Plant and Tony Iommi (any idea who the third guy is? Peter Frampton?) hanging out at the Nashville airport last night. Wonder if they were visiting Jack White? Supply your own photo caption.
  5. Hey guys, So I saw this picture some time ago and always assumed that man is Robert, but now I'm not so sure and I just can't seem to find any information on this. Every article I read about the Houses of the holy photo shoot only concerns the children but never says anything about the grown-up models. Does anybody know something about this?
  6. Seriously? No one has bothered to wish Mr. Plant a happy birthday yet? Because I'm in the Pacific Time Zone I am used to being late to the party, so this is very surprising for me to be first to offer birthday wishes. Happy Birthday Robert Plant! Have a lovely celebration day. 🎂
  7. As we come up to nearly 11 years since the Concert for Ahmet Ertegun, co-founder of Atlantic Records, at the O2 Venue in London, I am reminded of how self-centered Robert was to not want to do another handful of shows for that Tribute and re-union of Led Zep. Over the years since that famous night in December 2007, I have come to the conclusion that a "one off" concert for Ahmet and Zeppelin was not only a selfish decision on Robert's behalf, but a real travesty to us as fans, the music world, and personally to the other members of Zeppelin and their families. For all the rehearsals, time away from families and projects, and all the logistical aspects for that Night, they all now seem like a looming shadow over Robert's insistence not to continue that energy and good will. A shadow that grows longer and darker as the years pass and a Zeppelin reunion, for whatever reason, becomes nearly impossible. That Night at the O2 was so incredibly great and magical, can one imagine if they continued for even a handful of shows in different parts of the world where Ahmet and Zeppelin had such over-whelming influence and support. Let's take North America for instance. A show would have certainly been well received in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tampa, and say Dallas. All places where Zeppelin was noted for Tour stops back in their hey-day. All famous for their sold out venues and amazing, if not crazed, fans. Not only would that have been the right thing to do, I believe that with time and more shows - the Band would have gotten even better and tighter as a unit! Imagine... But no. Robert would have none of it. And we as fans, and the music world, are lesser for his decision. Ahmet made Atlantic Records famous in the US first. That's where his real market was. That's where he passed away and a tribute by Zeppelin would have been well suited in those and other cities. Jimmy, John Paul, and Jason were all on board, fired up, and ready to continue their success from that Night at the O2. All the pieces were in place. Everything. The Band was so rehearsed and even Jason was more than ready to fill his dad's big boots. But Robert held his ground and denied himself, and the members, and the fans that couldn't attend the O2 concert, a once in a lifetime chance to see Zeppelin reach new heights, a new audience, and make certain that Ahmet was given his due in the United States. His home away from home. Looking back, for what did Robert prove. 11 years almost gone - what was the point in not giving 6 months more in 2007 - 2008 to a Band's legacy. The Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary has come and gone now - with nothing new or exciting to talk about.... Robert, I love you beyond words. Thank you for all of your artistry and true inspiration. Your integrity will never be second guessed. However, your insistence on not continuing that magical Zeppelin resurgence at the O2, will also be a chapter in any historical accounting of the mighty Led Zeppelin. Maybe you don't care, but we do; and I'm certain the other Band members do as well now that Time has marched onward from that Night.
  8. Like quite a bit of Plant’s Post Zep material & admire him even more that he’s still hungry to try new things & walking the walk with his Touring. One frustration is he never seems to play Harmonica on this stuff & we all know how outstanding he is when he plays (never better than on “when the levee breaks”) His latest band lends itself perfectly for him to blow some harp, yet Nothing. Any suggestions why?
  9. Post any interviews with Jimmy Page on the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin here,thanks.
  10. Hey everyone! Does anyone know which of Robert's summer North American shows have Pre-Sale? and how to get the codes for them?. I know the festival performances obviously won't have presale, but besides that, it seems like everything is coming out on sale on varying days. It's been really hard keeping track. Thanks and much appreciated. Also, How are people able to get VIP for these shows? I noticed for the tour he just wrapped up here in the USA he would do VIP right after the show ended and when I tried ask people who had the VIP wristbands how they got them, one told me they purchased it. Is this true? and how does one purchase this? Would really like to buy my kid one if he does this again for his June tour. Thanks Again for the help

  16. Hi! so I'm pretty new to forums like these and this is a little embarrassing to talk about but...I'm a girl who is a HUGE Robert fan and I'm lucky enough to have good seats to see him for one of his upcoming shows for his tour for the newest album. It's my first time seeing him live. I'm just wondering what my chances are of trying to meet the guy. I really just want to thank him for being such an awesome musician. It seems that it's really hard during this current tour to see him before or after the show, I don't go to many concerts so I don't really know how these things work. Anyone mind helping me understand that? I remember reading on here where a fan met him several times around his hotel. Like... how do you even find his hotel? the guy just seems so careful about that.. That is astonishing to me. Plus I don't think i want to follow the poor man to his hotel : that's a bit creepy. If I don't get to meet him, it's fine but I just don't get how other people get to since he seems to avoid dealing with fans by the stage door..
  17. Does anyone know where I can find the original photo used in this single release cover from the Montreux show on August 7th, 1971: I've looked everywhere but the closest I can find is this one: A link would be much appreciated!!

  19. What is the best Led Zeppelin concert recording or bootleg?
  20. I was reading the biography Robert Plant: A Life by Paul Rees. I don't consider it to be a very trustworthy source, as I've already found several inaccuracies and Rees doesn't cite his sources in a way that be easily be checked. However, some of the stories in here are just too entertaining and funny that I'd just like them to be true. Like this one: On page 57 in Chapter 4, Rubber Man, Rees mentions (with no quotes or indication of any source) that Robert went to see The Who at the Kidderminster Town Hall in May (of 1966, I think, possibly 1967. Rees only says the month but was talking about 1966 previously) and at the gig Pete Townshend sang lead vocals because apparently Roger Daltey had walked out and after the show Robert waited for Pete and offered to sing for The Who. Has anyone ever heard this before or have any sources on it? Like I said before, I don't trust this book, most of the stories about his life prior to Zeppelin seem to be based on rumors and word of mouth from acquaintances mixed in with a few actual coversations with Robert, so I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't founded in reality but I was curious in case it was. Thanks! (also I appalogize if this is in the wrong place. I just joined and this is my first post after stalking the forum a bit without being signed up. I did look to see if there was already a thread I could add to and I found the book one, but there wasn't a lot of discussion in that thread and I didn't want to change the format. So please let me know if I should post my questions somewhere else.)

    Plant & Johnson Doc.

    Enjoyed hearing Robert so clearly relaxed & enjoying life on the Sky Arts Docu. Surprised & disappointed he referred to "Page" rather than the familiar "Jimmy" when discussing previous post Zep collaborations. Why would he do that?
  22. So, I had been wishing that Zeppelin would tour one last time so I could see them once, missed them as a kid and kicking myself for it. I figure they wouldn't be as good as they were 20 years ago, but still, cool. I have been keeping track of the back & forth between Plant & Page about reuniting and was frustrated by the outcome. HOWEVER, I have been listening to alot of Plant's later work and came up with a theory; Was Plant ever really into the harder, "metal" type hard rock? Most of the work he's done has been slower blues, folk, and nearly country music as with Alison Krauss. NOTE: I love this later work, so this isnt a slam on it! So, to you folks out there that know Plant better, what do you think? Thank you!
