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.
Mike needs no introduction to readers of the TBL magazine. His diligence in researching the concert history of Led Zeppelin is second …

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, …
