Evenings With Led Zeppelin by Dave Lewis and Mike Tremaglio
Here’s an update of the current major project.

The pic below was taken at StudioMix last week as I was working with TBL designer Mick Lowe on the Evenings With Led Zeppelin book project. This is the major book I am co-writing and collating together with long time TBL contributor Mike Tremaglio – with Mick handling the design and Omnibus Press the publishing.

The 02 Reunion – Nine Years Gone: Photo by Dave Linwood

Nine years ago on December 10, 2007 , I awoke with the prospect of Led Zeppelin retuning to the stage just a matter of hours away. The previous night I’d spent the evening in the Pilot Inn toasting that fact with fans from all corners of the world. It would be a similar scene a few hours later.
The day itself went by in something of a blur – walking on that cold concourse leading to the O2 complex, conducting various interviews, …

The Song Remains The Same Soundtrack at 40:
40 years ago,On the afternoon of Thursday October 21 1976, I anxiously tore open the box marked Warner/ Elektra/ Atlantic Records at the WH Smith record shop where I worked to reveal for the first time the gatefold sleeve of, as the label spine gloriously put it ‘’The Soundtrack To The Film The Song Remains The Same‘’.
Yes the only official live album released during the band’s life time is 40 years old.
I have much affection for that original double live album – it captures …

TBL MAGAZINE THE ESSENTIAL READ/LZ NEWS/WHOLE LOTTA LOVE IN JAPAN/JOHN LENNON AT 76/BEATLES IN BEDFORD 62/DL DIARY BLOG UPDATE

TBL Magazine Update:
Here’s a round up of the current state of paly with the TBL magazine.
A fair few very regular subscribers to the TBL magazine have yet to come back on board. I would say around 100 subscribers who have previously been very loyal to buying the magazine for some years, have yet to sign up for the 2016/17 subscription.
To reiterate:
ALL current subscriptions to the TBL magazine expired with issue 40. If you received issue 40 and have not re subscribed – now is the time.
As ever, I will be doing my utmost to deliver the …
