Jimmy Page & Robert Plant – Teenage Cancer gig – Royal Albert Hall, February 9, 2002: 18 Years Gone…
It’s amazing to think that it’s all of 18 years today (Feb 9th) that Jimmy and Robert appeared separately on the Teenage Cancer gig at the Royal Albert Hall headlined by Paul Weller.
I remember the TBL meet in the pub beforehand as if it was yesterday –in fact I still have the LZ Club Italia membership card that the visiting Italian fans handed me. And of course it all occurred …

TBL ARCHIVE LED ZEPPELIN I 51 YEARS GONE/TBL ARCHIVE JANUARY 1975 SNAPSHOT/ MY 7 NIGHTS WITH LED ZEP IN 1977/DL DIARY BLOG UPDATE -TOUGH TIMES

Led Zeppelin 1 – it was 51 years ago this week.. to mark the 51st anniversary of the debut Led Zeppelin here’s some facts, figures and thoughts on it all…

January 20, 1969 – Led Zeppelin debut album released:
Despite often being attributed to either Sunday, January 12, 1969 or Friday, January 17, 1969, the correct “official” release date of the debut album might well have been Monday, January 20, 1969.

Jimmy Page on the occasion of his birthday….
Jimmy Page is 76 today  – January 9th 2020
In a career that has spanned over seven decades, he has more than made his mark when it comes to the art of rock guitar playing.

Jazz, classical and Eastern influences, blues, 50s rock’n’roll and psychedelic – he has turned his hand to all these varying styles over the years.  Always inventive and with a brilliant ear for production values, Jimmy …

Michael Putland 1947 – 2019:
I was very sad to hear the passing of another iconic rock photographer Michael Putland aged 72. During the 1970s, his work was a staple feature in the UK music press. When I was editing the Five Glorious Nights Led Zeppelin at Earls Court 1975 book for Rufus Stone I had access to his amazing Led Zep Earls Court photos many of which were featured in the book – including the cover shot .
I was lucky enough to meet him at the Led Zeppelin From The …
