John Paul Jones is a working musician. Jimmy Page, on the evidence of the past 14 years, is not.

The damn thing seemingly sold out before it even went on sale. I got put in a queue and then it just flashed "Tickets are sold out. Check back soon."

Good to see JPJ invited to this. Couldn't help noticing Josh Homme & Alain Johannes on the bill too. Anyone know what playing shape Josh is in at the moment? I'd love another Crooked Vultures appearance, even if a record's not going to happen.
