Now, I'm a big Stevie Marriot fan myself, saw him live not that long before he died at the Band on the Wall in Manchester, we talked and he was pretty certain that Humble Pie were going to get back together along with Pete Framptom...ho hum....Saw Humble Pie twice in the early 70's..they never actually played what you'd call a long set..Performance Rockin the Fillmore still the best live album ever made by anybody. I like the music better on some live Lps, but the production of audience and performance and perfect playing never been beaten

A chap on the TV program on the history of the Eurovision Sing Contest
last night said Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones played guitar on the
Cliff Richards song Congratulations which came second in 1968.

Apparently Jimmy and John don’t like to be reminded of it !

Jimmy Page has been around for a long time, he was a session musician before he joined the New Yardbirds. As was Reg Dwight. There is footage of Jimmy Page playing guitar at Joe Meeks studio in the Holloway Road.

All that playing has made him deaf (or greedy!) Three times he's: 'remastered' the Zep catalogue for CD, and some of them still don't sound as good as the original vinyl..
But we still keep buying :-(

I am a big fan of LZ and have every record when I was young, my first LZ album was when I was 16 back in the early 70s, never did get to see them.

I saw LZ in concert as I continued to destroy my hearing by attending various concerts without hearing protection.

Years later I was in Chicago shooting a series of commercials and upon returning to the hotel found myself on the up elevator with R. Plant and a couple of his roadies. He asked one of them if they had a cable which would connect a Walkman to a Discman which they did not. I happened to have the exact cable he needed in my gear bag and loaned it to him.
At happy hour that aftn. he covered the bar tab for the entire crew and I spent some time talking at the bar with him along with my thanks for the beers. He invited me to come up to his room to listen to some new tracks he was putting together. I had already figured out he was gay from our conversation and so declined...
Said adios that eve, very classy guy.

Back in the 80's we piled out of the pub called the Great Stone in Northfield Birmingham as someone said that at the Church rectory over the other side of the street a concert was taking place and Roy Wood of Wizzard would be playing.



Well Roy was there but had also brought Robert Plant with him, great concert with maybe 200 to 300 in attendance.
