JIMMY PAGE ON THE OCCASION OF HIS BIRTHDAY/ EXCLUSIVE TBL 38 INTERVIEW EXTRACTS/ 25 COMPANION DISC MOMENTS PLAYLIST

On the occasion of his birthday….
Jimmy Page is 73 today (January 9th).
In a career that has spanned over six decades – he has simply written the rule book on the art of rock guitar.
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. At times his playing may seem sloppy and seemingly undisciplined but that is all part of the attraction. Always …

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, …

TBL Archive Special:
Led Zeppelin IV – 45 years gone…
November 1971 /Led Zeppelin IV 
45 years ago this month the fourth Led Zeppelin album emerged in a slightly mysterious manner with that enigmatic sleeve. I vividly remember the excitement and anticipation of the album in the music press that month. In fact the November 6 1971 issue of Melody Maker was something of an historic issue because it contained the first UK sighting the four individual symbols that would make up the title of Led Zeppelin’s fourth album. Each symbol was featured …

Bill Wyman 80th Birthday Gig – this from Krys Jantzen for TBL :
Last Friday I was lucky enough to catch Robert Plant make a special guest appearance at Bill Wyman’s 80th birthday celebration at The O2 Indigo in London.
Robert arrived on stage to huge applause and fondly told a story of Bill from the early Sixties which created much laughter from the crowd once Bill revealed the true motive of his bass playing technique! Robert then guested for three songs and sang ‘I Feel So Bad’, ‘Let The Boogie Woogie Roll’ …

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 …
