The story sounds plausible, but those photos were not in Creem magazine.

They were. Someone posted the same photo from the magazine with the photographer credit. I'd look for it but the post was deleted.

Edit: the photo on the left was, not the one with her in it.

These were the closeups she posted before deleting her post as people were vilifying her over the date mix-up.

That brunette is mighty fine! These pics deserve to be properly scanned for posterity.

This was quoted as being "Ozzy with Jimmy Page". Has that been confirmed? Doesn't look like Jimmy to me.

Haven't seen this one before. I see it's circulating on Facebook as "1971". Black Sabbath did support Led Zeppelin on short notice in Syracuse (9/10/71) and Rochester (9/11/1971). However, there are no photos on the timeline for Syracuse and only two for Rochester, which don't match "Jimmy's" clothing here.

Fake news. Black Sabbath were never on any bill with Zeppelin.  And that doesn't look like page in that photo.

Quite old fake news, apparently.  I've updated the file I pulled that from to omit it.

When is this ? Never seen before

I'd say Summer '84. Possibly Pistoia, Italy 7/84. The person on the left seems to be holding a vinyl copy of TSRTS, most likely for an autograph. Page seems to be wearing the same bomber jacket he wore for his appearance with Roy Harper on Old Grey Whistle Test which aired 11/16/84 (photo 1). See also undated photo (photo 2).

I was thinking 82 Steve, he had that shirt for 80 Tour, and he still looks like he’s on Henry here 

Are you sure about that shirt on the '80 tour? Anyway, upon further review '82 seems plausible. Note his hair is longer than it was when he jammed with Foreigner in Munich that May, so perhaps Summer '82.

Yep he had shirt in 80

Oh, yes. I believe that is July 3, 1980 in the basement bar of the Steigenberger Hotel in Mannheim (post-concert).

Looks like the Starship, but what year?

FB_IMG_1575307395953.jpg.395aa7b19cf214cb74f912c68a91ed49.jpg

 

Circa mid to late March 1975 based upon hair length, boots and bracelet.

The 'undated photo you mention is Jimmy at the Rock Garden in Covent Garden London on 24/11.84.

The leather jacket seems to have been a fave of Jimmy's from 82 to 84.....he is wearing it in this pic when I met him in April 82

I know the Pontiac pics have been discussed thoroughly and are rife with speculation, but what exactly is going on with the overhead screen in these shots?

First, that screen looks much smaller than the other pictures of the overhead screen and it's at a strange angle for the audience.

Second, both angles on the screen are from an overhead shot, seemingly directly above Bonham's kit. This angle wasn't used on the Seattle footage (that I can remember). What would be the purpose of such a strange angle?

And for a bonus conspiracy- I've noticed a discrepancy in how Jimmy and Robert's hair looks in different photos of this show. Was there a possibility of pics being taken during a sound check?

could it be a mirror? Looks more like a reflection than a video

It’s a mirror. Oh, the endless debate regarding that simple piece of stage setup...”It’s a mirror” is about as close to a legitimate meme as the Zeppelin community ever got.

Well, it's good to reaffirm the verdict every so often considering how terrible this site's search function is.

11/24/84 -- an appearance there with Roy Harper. Perfect!

What a brilliant Apr '82 shot you have. One can sense the optimism you both shared in that moment towards the future.

It's a mirror, not a video screen. Several photographs were taken during sound check, many of which are now in public circulation.

John Bonham jam, circa 1976.  info?

bonzo-jam---circa76.jpg

Initially, I had thought it might be the jam with pianist Norman Hale but it doesn't seem to be, does it? https://www.ledzeppelin.com/event/december-16-1975

Could it be TSRTS premier after-party at Opposite Lock in Birmingham, England in Nov 1976? I show he attended with Jason Bonham, who may or may not recall.

Another possibly...I thought I'd read about a jam he did with a group called U.S. Kids circa '75-'76? However, I can't seem to find anything on file for that at the moment

 I posted this jam recently, one that many fans were unaware of:

1977---john-bonham-jpj-jam---dallas.jpg
(April 1977, Dallas)

Many thanks for this. I don't show anything on this jam either at the moment but will continue searching. I did find this interesting feature on the club that does mention Led Zeppelin:
