Hey I know we all want to know this but the questions have to relate to TSRTS. :)

Are you sure? I re-read the Sam's initial post.. The focus doesn't seem so iron clad to me.

Anyway, TSRTS is so well dissected and documented, anything I wanted to know about it has already been discussed. I'd love to have the O2 on LP though. It's good enough.

Why are yourself, Dick, still involved with Led Zeppelin? Does the band as a collective entity want you to produce more videos for them in the future? Could the TSRTS been made into a "real documentary" from leftover footage of the 1973 tour? And, thank you for excellant vision, taste, and spirit in presenting Led Zeppelin (again, and hopefully again, wink, wink).

Sincerely,

Tom Lozupone

Sam, thanks for giving us the opportunity to submit questions to Dick Carruthers.

Do outtakes, unseen/unreleased footage, or still photos from the three nights at MSG in ’73 that weren't included in TSRTS exist? Are there additional scenes of the audience and of the LZ members backstage that were edited out and saved in archives? Does the original concert footage that was replaced by the scenes that were filmed at Shepperton still exist? Who owns the rights to the unseen/unreleased film footage and is it likely that any of this footage will ever be released?

Was Peter Grant's shoot-out sequence a tribute to Warner Brother's classic gangster films, a personal insight into how he saw himself in the music industry or something else entirely?

Cool!

Did the band get picky about how they looked in shots, was that a big consideration for how the movie was cut (and is it true that that's why they don't wanna release the O2 footage?). Ok I was pushing it there - disregard the brackets. :angel:

How do I tell Jimmy @ Sheperton from Jimmy @ MSG?

(I'll take an answer from anyone)

What was it about working with Led Zeppelin made them stand out more than any other bands you have worked with?

The shot of Jimmy alongside the moat at Plumpton Place reveals an all-seeing eye on his shirt in the center of his back, just before he turns to face the camera with red eyes. The next shot of Peter Grant shows him on the telephone at Horselunges Manor, and there is

an all seeing eye in the tapestry above his head. I happen to believe TSRTS is an occult film. With this in mind, was the inclusion of the all seeing eye in both scenes deliberate

or merely coincidental?

Have you personally seen footage of Peter Grant relaxing at home with his Siamese cats?

This was allegedly filmed for incorporation into his original fantasy sequence but never used.

Was there anything planned for the film that was abandoned due to disagreements with the band members?

Was there anything that was planned for Jimmy's section but deemed to "dark" to do? Or unable to do due limitations with budget or time restraints.

What was the most difficult thing that was encountered while making the movie?

What is the biggest Myth about the film that you can debunk?

after putting together the dvd that was released and working with footage of the band throughout their entire career, how do you think the concert footage from 'tsrts' rates in comparison-and if you were able to go back in time and film the band on any tour or year, which incarnation of the band would you choose?

editted to add: thanks, sam!

Question by Adam to Dick Carruthers: Are there any future plans to produce a documentary about the making of The Song Remains The Same? (With possible additional footage and explanations into each sequence.)

Settle this once and for all: who was the Indian woman caught in rapture listening to Robert singing Since I've Been Loving You? Many believe she is the younger sister of Robert's wife

at the time, while others insist she is merely a member of the audience. I'm inclined to say

she is an audience member, given she appears to be accompanied by a male companion.

Three lucky fans being granted free access to a Led Zeppelin concert just for the asking is the stuff of teenage fantasy. Was that scene staged?
