Zeppelin Mysteries Hosted by Steve A. Jones


Recommended Posts

I don't show him making an appearance at the RAH in Jan '89, but he did stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco on the nights of June 17th & 18th 1988 while performing in Mountain View on 6/17/88. 6/18/88 was a night off.

Neil Young played Mountain View the week prior on 6/11/88. It's a remote possibility if we can place Zydeco in California around this time, but the odds are it was in New Orleans prior to Young's tour resuming.

I happened to find this photo of Jimmy Page with the Yardbirds as I was surfing the net.

This photograph of The Yardbirds (w/Jimmy Page) and The Choir was almost certainly taken December 2, 1966 in the Union Ballroom at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio.

The Choir were the opening act for this independent date booked outside of the Dick Clark Caravan of Stars tour which The Yardbirds were on at the time.

Actually way to go Meg !

I show his next gig was cancelled (Kansas Coliseum in Wichita, KS on 11/18/88). Does

anyone in Kansas know what reason, if any, was given? Perhaps this was to allow him

to attend the Silver Cleft Awards after-show in New York on 11/17/88.

Edit: Never mind. I just realized I already have the answer: he played the Lloyd Noble Arena in Norman, OK on 11/18/88 instread.

Was it around this time that Jimmy took a few guitar lessons from John?

Adding to this....

Not all of these songs have Jimmy on guitar. In fact, the only one that is confirmed to feature Jimmy is "Heart Of Stone". (There were at least 6 session guitarists who played on these demos, and most songs feature only 2 guitars, so...)

Also, Bill Wyman recently stated that "Try A Little Harder" was recorded by the full Stones lineup in February 1964.

Thanks for the important clarification. It seems the people behind the release of this new cd may have exagerrated Jimmy's association with this tracks.

That's probably in order to make it appealing to sell more copies. Not that it wouldn't sell anyway, but even with Jimmy's name, it's guaranteed to sell more. Maybe not a lot more, but definitely more. It's called marketing.

Bit of a hard one, does anyone recall a programme on uk tv .Man Alive/World in Action late 1970's about banking.

The segment that focused on Led Zeppelin late 1970's. How they had invested , the clip of zep

were stills from 1975 in the programme if that helps?

I've never heard of this clip before, but perhaps someone else has. I do know they had been featured in the Financial Times newspaper at least twice (1970 & 1973). You

refer to a '75 tour program - perhaps it coincided with the Earls Court dates (May '75)

or the release of TSRTS (Oct 76). I'd be interested to see how extensively their investments were covered, particularly as some, such as Hammerwood Manor, failed.

Hi Steve!

Here's a couple of more questions to add to my growing list of questions!

1.) Regarding publishing companies usually the band utilized Superhype Publishing Inc. and Flames of Albion Music Inc. However for Physical Graffiti it states that all songs were published under Joaneline Music Inc. Do you have any information regarding Joaneline Music Inc.?

2.) I remember hearing an interview on June 7th 1991 on my way to a Billy Squier concert at the now defunct Sting nightclub in New Britain Connecticut and listening to a radio interview with Billy. If I recall correctly there was actually talk of Billy collaborating with Jimmy Page, but Billy was touring to support his then latest release Creatures of Habit and the talks fell through. Do you have any additional information regarding this? In addition, unless I'm mistaken Billy actually mentioned this in a second interview he conducted.

3.) Following up on the recent sale of a Jimmy Page used bow, can you confirm if Jimmy only utilized Czechoslovakia A. Prager bows or did he utilize various manufactured bows?

4.) Do you recall in your vast articles archive if there ever was any other mention other than in NME that the first two dates from the 1973 tour were transmitted via a closed circuit tv system?

Thanks as always if you have any information regarding the above and the previously posted questions!

Robert, you've presented awesome questions for this thread. I'll see what I can find.

I can tell you the corporate offices for Joaneline Music are (were?) 33-34 CHANCERY LANE in LONDON.

Is it Robert Plant or Maggie Bell who sings at the end of Donovan's Barabajagal? Robert Plant is not listed in the credits that I have seen so far, but Madeline Bell is.

I've never heard Robert mentioned as singing vocals on that track though Robert did say he bought his first car from him :D

Led Zeppelin: The 1975 Scandanavian Tour CANCELLED

Hi Steve,

Sorry about the delay with the reply! I went through three years' worth of Suosikki magazines during the Christmas holiday and found some new articles (some of which might have been published in UK/US magazines and translated into Finnish). There is a copy of the fax (or equivalent) of the annoucement of the 1975 concert cancellation that was sent from a Danish agency plus a curious article of Zep's press conference from Stockholm in 1973 which was held at a strip club with live strippers. Btw of particular interest was a mention in the cancellation article that (if I remember correctly) the WHOLE European tour was cancelled because of Robert's accident which must mean that other dates were confirmed for the tour. My mum has taken photocopies of all articles and will send them to me shortly.

with regards

Mauri

Hi Mauri,

Three years worth? Wow! It will be interesting to see how much press

coverage they were afforded.

Hi Steve,

I'm travelling to Pori on Saturday and my mum has borrowed three years worth of Suosikki magazines for examination - I'll tell you about the results!

Hi Steve,

I have your photocopies ready for mailing but I thought to send the translations by email - lots easier and you can also send these to other people if you like. You'll have the articles in Finnish coming in the package but like I wrote earlier, I don't currently have the front cover of the magazine. The front cover of both Suosikki magazines from 1975 is included with the articles.

Hi,

Sounds good. I've gotten favorable responses from Canada and Portugal (so far) on the research into the Helsinki dates. Something like this really pays off when it motivates others to do some research of their own, leading to further discoveries.

Hi!

I am taking photocopies today, but since tomorrow is the Finnish independence day and the post offices are closed during weekend, I can also send your wares on Monday. But I'll promise to do that then! :=)

Thanks for posting the details of the November 1975 "show" - I wonder if this really draws anyone's attention? Hope so.

with regards

Mauri
