More archive material is not the 'new material' he's been promising for the last 15 years.,

How do you know? The guy hasn't released anything new in 16 years as I'm sure you're aware. Anything he's done in those sixteen years is in his "archives" at this point. Hell everyone knows he wrote a bunch of new stuff with Michael Lee years ago, that's one example of songs that could be in his "archives". There's no expiration date for songwriting, if it's stuff we've never heard before it will be new. Enjoy the ride!

Jimmy Page, Melbourne, 1967

HALES, Geoffrey (Australian, 1948- )

# 6008

Digital print on Epson archival matte paper, format Super A3 480 x 330 mm, scanned from the original print, signed and captioned in lower margin by the photographer, Geoffrey Hales.

The so-called Big Show tour came to Melbourne in January, 1967. The incredible rock 'n' roll bill at Festival Hall featured Roy Orbison, The Walker Bros and The Yardbirds, supported by Johnny Young and The Mixtures. This informal photograph of the legendary Jimmy Page, at the time guitarist with The Yardbirds, was taken on a scorching summer's day in Little Bourke Street, close to where the musicians were staying at the Southern Cross Hotel. Note the Victorian Butter Federation van in the background. Page and Hales had just paid a visit to the Mini Emporium, an eccentric shop run by the owner of the Thumpin' Tum nightclub, Ron Eden. This image was published in Go-Set magazine in February, 1967.

Melbourne-born Geoffrey Hales is a musician, composer, artist and photographer. An archive of digital prints of his photographs of the Australian Ballet taken during 1967-68 - a period many regard as a golden age of Australian ballet - are held in the collection of the Arts Centre Melbourne, Performing Arts Collection. His work from this period also featured in the Arts Centre Melbourne and Australian Ballet's touring exhibition Time in Motion : 50 years of the Australian Ballet, which was exhibited at the State Library of New South Wales, 10 Nov 2012 – 10 Feb 2013 (see: http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/events/exhibitions/2012/timeinmotion/items/image04.html ).

Jeff St John & the Id's reputation as one of the country's top R&B bands also earned them a well-received support gig on the 1967 Yardbirds, Roy Orbison and Walker Brothers tour of Australia.

Buzz-kill? Yes, maybe. But Jimmy has brought on such (low expectations and bitterness from fans) himself

over the many years. Let's hope this is finally the year he turns the sour to sweetness again...

Really?

12 years with the greatest rock band ever, with the 9 greatest albums ever. Two concert films, a documentary, a solo album, two Firm albums, Page + Plant, C/P, and one of the most revered reunion shows of all time...not to mention his endless session work and shoot, i'll even throw in playing guitar with a famous rapper while i'm here.

What more does he have to add? Honestly, even if he stopped doing anything ever again after 1980, his career still would have exceeded perfection. Don't forget this is the man who wrote Stairway to Heaven.

Jimmy is beyond expectation, he is an artist that does things as they come. There's so many "what ifs" to ask regarding his solo work, from the fans and from himself i am sure. So why push it if it's not there? Let the music be your master....

No one can argue with jimmy's resume - it's an awesome career that really was only great when he does Zeppelin related projects. The Firm, David Coverdale, and his solo

work were good at best - not great. His work with the Black Crowes was Zeppelin and a cover band. Page / Plant was Zeppelin minus one. The reunions were Zeppelin at their

worst other than the O2 - which was awesome of course. Even the "rapper" stuff had Zeppelin ruined. And then Jimmy has done nothing of note un-related to Zeppelin.

He's an artist - get to making art.

I'm one to say I like the "Come With Me " version cover of "Kashmir" with Puff Daddy (as he called himself back then. But, it's not the single version I like but the remixed version which Tom Morello did. It's quite good. Search on YT for this as Morello Mix. So much better! :thumbsup:

I appeared on Channel V with Robert Plant

Robert Plant and I had been invited to accept an award from Channel V - India’s premier music channel - and we had won an award for longevity.

The highlight of the show were to be Los Del Rios, whose 'Macarena' song was a global hit at the time. Unfortunately at the last minute the duo pulled out of the trip as one of them had developed a sore throat; which was quite ironic considering they were going to mime. As it was, the chief dancer and choreographer of their video was to perform the song on her own. I believe this was the first time Channel V was doing this on an international level and now they had a bit of problem. They approached us to do something and of course we didn’t have any instruments and hadn’t rehearsed. It was suggested that we could mime Rock’n’Roll with Roger Taylor from Queen on drums (who was there to accept an award on behalf of Freddie Mercury) and a bass player from Goa.

We agreed to it and did a quick rehearsal, I felt sorry for Channel V that they’d been let down by the Macarena boys. During the rehearsals the Goan bass player was well behaved but when it came to the show he suddenly developed a dose of Saint Vitus Dance and transformed into Billy Whiz crossed with the Flash. He couldn’t stop moving throughout the song and made it even more of a pantomime than it already was. But hey we did it and it was real good to be part of this special award show which is still being aired today.

Todays is one of of my favorites. I love that he did an OTD about it.

...AEN, I love all of their visits to India....their profound journeys to appreciate all cultures, foerever close to the Heart....Jimmy's Sitar Composition So beautiful, as "He" himself is celebrated composition... for all of his beauty and charm!!

...It looks like Jimmy's Sitar has been looked after here in this London Musical Instrument Shop

I have been privileged to serve many top musicians over the years. The western musicians include David Gray, Pete Lockett and John McLaughlin, and I’ve repaired a sitar for Jimmy Page...

Did the original version of today's entry, about "Ten Years Gone" and "Trampled Under Foot," mention the alternate title of the latter song?

Yep, I just missed it.

The original as in 20 Feb 2011 - it is exactly the same. He only says TUF had a working title of "Brandy and Coke"........interesting mix wouldn't you say?

Yeah, went back and checked an archived version, and it was identical content-wise, although the design is slightly different today.

An interesting cocktail indeed -- probably something they dabbled in quite a lot! That's what I loved the site for, the insight (however slight) into the creation of the tracks.

The official Jimmy Page Twitter account used to tweet On This Day entries every day up to the end of last year, then it stopped with his New Year message on January 1st.

Today the account sent a tweet, but it was for tomorrow's On This Day entry (March 6th) not today. The entry on the site is the correct March 5th On This Day for the Page & Plant performance in Istanbul, not the March 6th Yardbirds entry described in the tweet.

On this day I appeared on BBC Radio's Saturday Club with The Yardbirds http://bit.ly/1drHCrp #jimmypage

This is all quite interesting. Thanks all!

The musical samples of Wanton Song, Ten Years Gone and Sick Again on today's (Feb. 24th) O.T.D. are interesting.

Too bad, I missed these! Gotta check the site more often and be more adamant like I was the first year or so, before the entries repeated with the OTD. Every, so often there is something quite good.

How were these samples, luvlz2? Have we heard them before and where? Would like to here them, no matter how brief! Help us out here!
