Led Zep "DVD"

Recommended Posts

Fuck the heck?

I'm confused as well. I think this bloke's full of shit. And if it isn't a joke ment to wreak havoc and does deal with numbers/ math I'll never get it cos numbers are just a bunch of funny looking pretty much useless lines to me.

I'm uncertain whether this is true or not - i first called this bs but then that "bar" thing, i started to look some things and now i'm uncertain whether there is a secret message or not.

I still don't know what you mean by that Dear Johnny thing!

Never touched the stuff myself...and it wasn't me who made the zep DVD, I just happened to know some history, numbers, and the credo of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant -does that make me a crack-head?

I told you dear - I'm not ruining the fun for anyone else who may stumble upon the code...it's like knowing in September what you're getting for Christmas, what fun would that be?

I'm not a stoner, I'm a historian and know this picture's history and the meaning of the Zep DVD - THAT'S ALL! I study and learn...poor me - right?

By the way, Dave Mason's "We just disagree" is one of my all time fav songs and truly appropriate here! No?

Stop talking about Dave Mason, and stop posting BS. Thanks.

Okay, I'm going to take a guess. The cover of the DVD features one of the buttes in Monument Valley. It has a halo above it, so the image could symbolize the DVD's purpose as a "monument" to Bonzo. But I think many fans could assume that the DVD's purpose is to honor the band's legacy, including Bonzo's role and importance in the band. Anyhow, that's just my guess.

Thanks Isis, but no...it's not in tribute to Bonzo nor the band. The halo is really a "zeppelin" - look at the shape a bit closer and you'll see.

Are you talking about 68 80 and the infinity symbol? No matter, your confident you've

got it all figured out so for you it is not an unsolved mystery. If you want to see a few

UNSOLVED mysteries of mine go to my thread nirvana rudely intruded upon moments ago.

Like the backmasking, just got to read really deep into it, right? <_<

By somewhere in the middle of this thread I'd figured you were talking about the artwork and the title "DVD", but I still don't know what the great secret is.

I'm gonna go see if I can score some weed, then I'll get back to you.

By the way, I find it unlikely that any member of the band had any more involvment in the artwork other than picking one idea from a number of suggestions and then approving the finished design. If there is any kind of "code" in there it will probably be the work of - let me see, ah yes - Andie Airfix at Satori.

Well if so, that's easy - the Band was formed in '68, finished in '80 when Bonzo died, but the music lives for ever: infinity.

I get the feeling that he's saying there is more than just that, though...

Quite right - there is more. I believe the 68-80-infinity was on the 1990 box set with the Alton Barnes crop circles.

THe DVD has a different meaning totally. Don't think that Zep wasn't involved in the artwork. They have total interest in the packaging going way back to Zep 3. Jimmy has an art degree and was the quiet teacher behind most of Zep's fantastic album covers, none more so than the DVD.

So, the artwork and title of the DVD is no accident.

I think you meant to say all the way back to the FIRST album: Artist George Hardie arrived upstairs for their October 18th 1968 gig at the Marquee in London whereupon

Jimmy Page proceeded to show him a copy of that famous photograph taken of the

Hindenburgh disaster and elaborate on how he wanted it represented on their album

cover. George Hardie went on to produce album cover as instructed. Last time I

checked he still had that slip of paper Jimmy handed him in a safe. The folder he

had put it into he'd written "G's Pension Fund" (!).

Jimmy is very knowledgeable about visual arts but does NOT hold an arts degree; in

1962 he dropped out of Sutton College after 18 months to become a studio musician.

Yes -you're right! However between the record company and the Graf von Zeppelin family, who wanted to sue Zep over that first album cover and the Zep name, Jimmy had no real artistic "rights" per se to determine final artwork. Led Zep II art was an Atlantic "version" that was hated by all in the Zep camps. So, it wasn't until LZIII that Jimmy and Peter G. managed to wrestle FULL artistic control over what the artwork was.

As far as Jimmy's art degree, I thought I had read somewhere that he did manage to finally get a dergree - maybe it was honorary, in Art History. Either way, it doesn't take a full degree to be a good artist. I found a picture that he painted of his version of the Hermit of the Tarot - and it's amazing!

If you want I'll pass along the pic, if you haven't seen it already. Let me know and I'll e-mail it to you.

Peace brother!

If you recall, Baroness Von Zeppelin did not cross their path until well after the first album was released. She had happened to see it whilst being introduced to them just prior to their show at the K.B. Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark on Feb 28th 1970.

This may account for why they changed their name to The Nobs on their next date,

Mar 7th 1970 at the Montreux Casino (Montreux Jazz Festival) but I've always felt

it's obvious they did so as a tribute to the festival's founder, Claude Nobs, whom

they would forge a very close relationship with throughout the 70s, to include living

with him during their periods of tax exile status throught the mid-70s. They performed as Led Zeppelin at The Circus Krone in Munich, Germany the very next day so how intimidated could they have really been, aside from in the moment when she's yelling?

Anyway, Jimmy was disappointed by the end result for the third album and so with the fourth ensured they retained full artistic control. Any debate about "full artistic control" becomes an exercise in semantics.

Jimmy may have been presented something like an honorary degree when he visited

Epsom College on March 4th 2002 with his wife for a "Rocking For Rio" charity benefit.

Jimmy had spent his teenage years living in Epsom with his parents so the occasion

had a sense of him having come full circle. The short set of music he performed that

night remains his last public performance, at least until December 10th 2007!

Please consider posting the drawing here or better yet start a new thread to share it.
