  1. Here are some never-before-seen fan photos from Led Zeppelin's legendary Carnegie Hall (October 17, 1969) appearance. A group of 15 year-old fans captured their experience at the 8:30pm (early show) from the 10th row. They describe a lack of security, except for Carnegie Hall ushers and were free to venture up to the front of the stage for a few pics as well. Amazingly, these photos also reveal Jimmy Page's first photographed live use of his Black Beauty Les Paul during Led Zeppelin and confirms it was brought to North America for this fall 1969 tour. http://www.ledzeppelin.com/show/october-17-1969
  2. I was wondering if anyone has any stories or luck with Jimmy Page fan mail? I figure during this pandemic is a good shot at catching him at a good time during his lockdown. I've heard he isn't staying at his London house currently but is in his southeast England home for his lockdown. Who knows any info will help... thanks!
  3. Watching Celebration Day DVD - again.... I notice at the end of the Dazed and Confused violin bow section with Jimmy... The green laser light pyramid rotating around him stops, stays fully lit and in place as the eerie green geometric shape it is - high above Jimmy. Odd thing is Jimmy walks out of the pyramid at that point...normally he will wait until the laser pyramid has been shut down before continuing his solo! I believe there is great significance to him walking out of the still energized laser lights. If you look closely at the part of the video where he comes out and tosses his violin bow he does it with purpose and intention. Not an accident. Some may say he was pissed because of the problems with the lasers and effects at that point but look close and you will see him deliberately stepping out of the green pyramid and tossing his bow. He never had done this in all the Zeppelin years previously...he always waited until the lasers went out to move around the stage, and he never threw his bow. Very symbolic and significant of him to do this at that point. It does have clear meaning on certain levels of ritual attainment.
  4. hi guys, my vinyl copy of led zeppelin 2(remaster) says "living loving wreck(shes just a woman)" on the label. i know that the first pressings had that aswell, but the mistake was soon fixed. do the remasters have that as a tribute or do have a super rare copy? the title on the gatefold has the correct spelling.
  5. *****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
  6. Here's my custom made Jimmy Page Black Dragon Jacket! I play guitar for Electric Magic- my Led Zeppelin tribute band. We had a pretty big gig down in the Lower East Side of New York City at Otto's Shrunken Head. The set list was gonna have some heavy deep tracks....Sick Again, What Is And What Should Never Be, Ten Years Gone, Kashmir, Rock n' Roll, Dazed and Confused (with bow solo) and Ramble on. For the show it was decided that we should dress as the members of Zeppelin but not go way over the top. This jacket is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it. I was a real challenge to make. It's not exact but kinda close right???? It looks beautiful on stage and under the lights!!!
  7. 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!

  8. The People's Front Of Zeppelin is a new YouTube channel devoted to playing covers of Zep's music, instrumentally (for now, until we find a great singer). Most of our cover videos are inspired by Zep's live style performances, but will also be posting studio versions as well. Please subscribe to our channel and follow us on Instagram and Facebook. Oh...and we are NOT the Zeppelin People's Front! 😏 Here is a link.... Hope you dig what we are about! If so, please spread the word!
  9. I know about a "cult" photo where Page is wearing a mage's outfit, but I've never found it anywhere. Does anyone have this image? (It's not the same suit he's wearing in TSRTS movie when playing Dazed and Confused) If somebody has, I would be greatful forever!!!
  10. 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.
  11. They're almost always mentioned in the top 2 or 3. Jimi Hendrix was incredibly talented. Has a blues/jazz/improv way of playing that was very akin to the black artists of the 30's-50's. He was just really soulful and poetic with the guitar. But unfortunately, he died way too young, and I don't think his catalogue matches up with Page's for that reason alone. Page proved to be far more versatile and wide-reaching with the kind of music he'd play, between loud, soft, soothing, aggressive, he mastered just about every angle of guitaring.
  12. Hi there! I've been out for a long time. Hope you're all fine. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I've just finished one of the hardest projects: a more faithful replica of that pendant considering there's not a single sharp photo of it. If someone here wants one, I give 10% off saying that found me via this forum. It's handmade under request and is an exclusive fine piece. Ps.Thank you and if I could not post here sorry! http://mystikdragon.com
  13. Just a heads up to say that last night at the Chris Cornell Tribute concert at the Forum, they used a video tribute from Jimmy Page before the surviving members of Soundgarden took the stage at the end of the show. It would have been nice if Jimmy (and Robert or John Paul) could have been there in person to play but it was a nice touch. So much to digest from last night...over 40 songs and over 5 hours with all sorts of special guests along with the announced artists. No Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready, however. So the Temple of a Dog reunion wasn't quite complete. Geezer Butler and Perry Farrell joining the Audioslave reunion was a nice treat. Chris' daughter Toni brought tears as she sang "Redemption Song" and Miley Cyrus surprised the naysayers with her scorching take on "Say Hello 2 Heaven". Still...I would trade last night for having Chris Cornell alive.
  14. Post any interviews with Jimmy Page on the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin here,thanks.
  15. I don't post here very often but do read the contributions of other. Today I noticed a strange coincidence when I was looking at my Facebook feed and I don't remember the topic being mentioned or discussed here. The last Jimmy Page-era Yardbirds concert was July, 7th 1968 and the last Led Zeppelin concert with John Bonham was exactly 12 years later on July, 7th 1980. After some additional research it turns out that the last Jimmy Page and Robert Plant concert was July 7th, 2001. What is going on with July 7th and Jimmy Page?
  16. This is such a silly fangirl question, but does anyone know what brand of cigarettes Jimmy used to smoke? Did he have a preference?
  17. Here's a neat article I found that gives some details on the homes Jimmy has owned. http://dereklangille.blogspot.com/2010/07/jimmys-cribs.html What I find more interesting is Jimmy's obsession with waterfront property. The first four homes he purchased all had water of some type around them. Maybe that's what sparked his creativity? Page said he wrote "Friends" while sitting on the balcony of his Thames boathouse. I wonder what he wrote at Boleskine?
  18. 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. Randy Bachman's Facebook Page Douglas Maliszewski asks: "Randy, can you tell us about your experiences with LZ and Jimmy Page?" Hi Douglas, Sure. I first met Jimmy page in 1967 when I was with The Guess Who and he was with The New Yardbirds at The Cleveland Art Institute. Both bands shared a dressing room. He asked if he could play my Rickenbacker and I said yes, if I could play his Telecaster. Then, we had a discussion and he mentioned starting a new band. The next year, I heard about Zeppelin and in 1969, we played The Seattle pop festival in Woodinville, WA. We ended up playing the same venues several times. After our band played, we’d go to the back of the crowd and watch the other acts. At one of the festivals, which were always in fields with generators, the main generator went out. Only one little amp was working. It had Robert Plant’s harmonica mic in it and the rest of the PA system was down. John Bonham kept drumming and Plant sang into this little mic and played harmonica for about 40 minutes until the power came on. I was amazed. They were just great! In summer, 1970 they were scheduled to play the Winnipeg Stadium for the Man-Pop Festival. It rained so the concert was moved to the indoor arena. Their gear had mistakenly gone to Sweden. A makeshift, 1 foot stage was set up and Doc Stein went on CKRC radio and asked every band to lend their gear because Zeppelin said they’d play if they had gear so we did. John Paul Jones had his range pedals he had carried on the plane and they played and sounded fantastic with a bunch of mixed gear. Iron Butterfly also played. Page has got brains and is quite smart. He stopped drinking years ago and he is more articulate than a lot of people but is quite quiet by nature. I was playing w/Fred Turner at Sweden Rock in 2010. Directly after, was The High Voltage Festival in London. Emerson, Lake and Palmer were playing. So was Joe Bonamassa. We heard Jimmy Page was coming to play with someone else on stage. I was put into a trailer that was divided in half by a curtain. There were 2 doors. He had 2 bodyguards and I asked to see him. They said no so I went in my own door, my own side. I had found several of the posters from the 1969 Seattle Pop festival they had played at years before and thought Page might want a copy. I said as much out loud and the curtain opened and he said, “Hi mate, how are you doing?” He was very gracious and said he'd love a copy of the poster. I sent it to Ross, his minder, who was there taking pictures. Later, Fred Turner and I played the Roundhouse for a special for Robert Plant and sent him the same thing. When I played the opening of the Gretsch museum in Georgia with Bo Diddley, I took the pop festival poster again. Bo wanted to show his family he had once played with Zeppelin.
  20. The purpose of this thread is to chronicle the various events that Jimmy heads to, and all of the Jimmy Page sightings and events that perhaps don't warrant their own thread. Feel free to contribute! Any updates on what's been going on, along with photos and videos, are very welcome. Also, let's make sure that we respect Jimmy's privacy, so no discussion of his addresses or family.
  21. What is the best Led Zeppelin concert recording or bootleg?
  22. 1. McCartney & Wings : Rock Show 2. Neil Young - Downtown 3. Beastie Boys: The New Style 4. Damn Yankees: Rock CIty 5.
