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.
From monolithic riffing to bombastic solos. From simple acoustic beauty to vast guitar instrumental orchestration. 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 …

So that was the year that was….2019…
On the Zep related front, Jimmy’s display of guitars and amps at the Play It Loud Instruments Of Rock’n Roll Exhibition in New York  was very well received by all that viewed.

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 …

ROBERT PLANT CLASSIC ROCK INTERVIEW/DIGGING DEEP PODCAST/JPJ ON STAGE/LZ NEWS/TBL CHRISTMAS OFFERS /THE NIGHT STALKER REVIEWED/TBL ARCHIVE LED ZEPPELIN IV 48 YEARS GONE/A CELEBRATION BOOK /DL DIARY BLOG UPDATE

My thoughts on the new Robert Plant Interview in this month’s Classic Rock:
A very good interview with Robert Plant by Rob Hughes in the new issue of Classic Rock – though I was surprised there was no direct mention of his Saving Grace project. There’s a heart-warming story of how John Bonham got him back in to the fold for ‘’one morel flurry ‘’with Zep, a good overview of his early solo career with rightful credit to Phil Collins, tales of performing on Top of The Pops, plenty of accolades …

Led Zeppelin CAT Club 50th anniversary Led Zeppelin II event at the Tap & Barrel Pontefract:
Last Tuesday I travelled up to Ponterfract to present the Led Zeppelin II 50th anniversary celebration at the CAT Club at the excellent Tap & Barrel pub.
On the night it was a great turn out and what I can say – listening to Led Zeppelin II on record uninterrupted in like-minded company was like hearing it for the first time all over again. Side One – from the cough and riff entry of Whole Lotta Love …
