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, …

ELECTRIC MAGIC 45 YEARS GONE:
November 21st is always a bit of a special date in my calander year – as it was on this day back in 1971 that I was lucky enough to witness Led Zeppelin live at the Empire Pool Wembley –and as you will read, nothing was ever the same in our house after that. Over the next few days  I’ll be wading through the Empire Strikes Back Tarantura CD box set to recall the night the Wembley Empire Pool was, as the Melody Maker headline ran  ‘Zapped …

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 :

ROBERT PLANT AT CANNOCK/TBL 39/ LIVE AID 30 YEARS GONE/OVER EUROPE 1980/RAMBLE ON RADIO/DL DIARY UPDATE

Robert Plant at Cannock  – July 11, 2015 – Forest Live:
An awesome night in the company of Robert Plant on the second of two summer UK gigs. A intimate crowd of fans, families and children together with an opening act consisting entirely of 11 year olds gave the concert the air of a welcoming British village fete. Seeing Robert this relaxed reminded me of his memorable Priory of Brion UK gigs.
With Robert only a short drive from his home this was very much a hometown gig for him and he excelled tonight …
