The TBL Celebration Countdown continues…to mark the impending momentous worldwide release of  Celebration Day – the Led Zeppelin Ahmet Ertegun 02 reunion concert on DVD, Blue ray and CD on Monday November 19th 2012 , we are counting down to the day…. Countdown to the Celebration Day release …12 days to go.

TBL NEWS ROUND UP:

Here’s a roundup of latest news and views  in the world of Led Zeppelin…

JOHN PAUL JONES ON TOUR WITH SUPERSILENT

Next week John Paul Jones will be joining cult Norwegian industrial ambient-noise group Supersilent for a series of UK dates in November –support act is experimental Japanese composer/field recording artist Aki Onda. The dates are as follows:

Nov 14th, Town Hall, Birmingham

Nov 15th, The Arches, Glasgow

Nov 16th, RNCM, Manchester

Nov 17th, Arnolfini, Bristol

Nov 18th,  Village Underground, London

In the August issue of  Uncut, 24, talking about  his work with Supersilent John revealed that his latest project shares some of the improvised qualities of  the Zeppelin era. “There were great unplanned improv sequences in Led Zep songs such as Dazed And Confused and Whole Lotta Love,” he commented.. “Quite often I found myself on stage with absolutely no idea of what I was going to do, and that’s the fun of it.” Unlike Zeppelin, though, his performances with Supersilent use complex electronic processing: “I love this style of playing – it can be extraordinarily delicate and beautiful, or it can sound like the end of the world.”

Here’s a link to an excellent recent interview with John that was feaured in the Financial Times last  Saturday.

    Dave Grohl is recording with QOTSA, but no commitment for live dates (yet). QOTSA are confirmed for Friday Download next June, no word on whether DG will be part of that.

    Looking forward to the Bristol Supersilent show – a Saturday to boot, plenty of time to fit in a curry and a few beers!
