Featuring rare footage, performance archive, recorded interviews, contributions from his closest collaborators, expert critique from the finest music writers, plus location film, news reports seldom seen photographs and a host of other features.

Looks to be a very exciting end of 2011 with Robert's new video release in August and Jimmy's new web site and multi-media events in July.

Wow, we all have something to look forward to as Zeppelin fans!

Hasn't been this much buzz on our boys since the O2...

Thanks for the info Knebby, greatly appreciated :D

Sorry Deb I should have said who with - wasn't meaning to be cryptic - singer Alfie Boe, for Boe's album. Since Boe has now spoken about this in public- they recorded "Song To The Siren" together in May - I should think it's ok to talk about it here :)

Kind of surprised there hasn't been more feedback about this here. It's going to be quite an extensive and detailed release as the running time of the dvd clocks in at 155 minutes. Can't wait for this! :thumbsup:

I agree Super D. It is a huge release and yet the buzz hasn't be generated like I thought it would be here. C'mon people!

Surprised to see this making number 8 in the BBC news website's most popular stories. Had heard it was a grand night though.

Aww. That was very kind of Mr. Plant. He remembers his old buddies, even after they're gone.

I read something somewhere... It was from a book by another musician I think. The writer mentioned Robert and said he was more kind and generous than he let on. He said Robert paid Skip Spence's hospital bill, for instance. (Poor Mr. Spence had schizophrenia, among other things. That's so sad.) So, yeah, Mr. Plant's a good man. We need more people like that.

I enjoyed watching this and picked up a few things I didn't know about Plant beofre and after Zeppelin. Towards the end of the video one of the interviewee's takes a slam against Page saying Robert has out grown him and he's stuck in the past, etc. Though some truth to that I found it uneccessary

That was a popular take in the 80's too, and I didn't much care for it then either. I applaud Robert for his musical thirst, but I also think some of the stuff Jimmy did with the Firm has aged better than some of Robert's 80's output. And Jimmy's contributions to Now and Zen was the highlight of that album IMO, particularly his soloing on Heaven Knows. Still sounds great.
