JIMMY PAGE CONVERATION WITH KIRSTY LANG ON BBC WORLD SERVICE ON CHRISTMAS DAY

THe BBC World Service will be airing the full version of Kirsty Lang’s interview with Jimmy Page on Christmas Day – a highlight of which was broadcast last month. See links at

Here’s a highlight clip:

JOHN PAUL JONES ON BBC RADIO 3 ON NEW YEARS DAY

This via the BBC 3 website:

Fiona Talkington celebrates the New Year with special guest, multi-instrumentalist and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, who plays live and chooses a selection of music on BBC Radio 3 on January 1, 2013 at 23:00.

It is unknown exactly what John Paul will be performing, since in past radio performances he has played bass guitar in a band, solo lap steel guitar, however perhaps it might be something related to Supersilent or Minibus Pimps, since radio host Talkington has the love of all things Norwegian.

TBL 34 UPDATE:

Quick update on TBL 34. This week I’ve been working with TBL designer Mick Lowe on Mike Tremaglio’s TBL retrospective tour log – this covers the Japan October ‘72 tour, the Monteux concerts and the 25 date UK tour that spanned from November 30th 1972 to January 30th 1973.

As can be seen from the preview text above,  it’s another epic piece packed with fascinating comments from the time and rare images – another highlight of the forthcoming issue TBL 34 due early Feb 2012. You can pre order the single issue at this link:

Or why not back track and order the three 2012 TBL subscription issues which cover TBL issues 32, 33 and 34.  Issues 32 and 33 will be dispatched immediately. Here’s the link to receive all three issues:

TBL 34 will be a great way to start the new year as we move ever onward into the 35th anniversary of the magazine’s creation. Many thanks for your continued support.

DL Diary Update: Before all that there’s that little matter of Christmas. The usual round of TBL Christmas cards have left the building – if I forgot you – apologies all round, it was not intended and seasons greetings go to one and all. Many thanks for the many cards and best wishes received from all parts of the globe.  I did my stint as Santa yesterday handing out the presents at the pre school the good lady Janet is deputy leader at -just another part of the TBL service (pics to follow!)…..in between wrapping the presents here and the usual last minute stuff, I’ll try and catch some of the Slade night on BBC 4 tonight (Friday) – a showcase night of programmes  featuring the colourful 70s band fronted by another noted Black Country vocalist Noddy Holder…it includes their excellent 1974 movie Slade In Flame, the soundtrack of which has been on the player alongside Celebration Day (naturally) and some very fine seasonal fare including Darlene Love’s Christmas (Baby please come home), Bruce’s version of Santa Clause is Coming To Town and Greg Lake’s I Believe in Father Christmas.

AND FINALLY… 

ROBERT PLANT WITH PATTY GRFFIN:

More You tube clips of Robert Plant’s appearance with Patty Griffin last Saturday

Have a great weekend…

Until next time… keep reading -keep listening

    Well, a bit less Hayseed-Dixie than of late with Band of Joy, but after watching that Charlie Rose interview you just think – why,why,why this when it could be the real deal.

    John would’ve wanted it you know Robert…..

    The performing team of Mr and Mrs Plant (according to Rolling Stone).

    It occurs to me watching that rendition of Black Dog that Robert is content to drift further into this spooky Americana direction, sort of like a soundtrack to a David Lynch movie. I really have to admire his integrity to still chase his muse all these years, wherever that takes him, be it Austin or Nashville or (blessedly) the o2 in London.

    I also detect a Van Morrison vibe in the way that he directs the flow of the song, heralds the drummer to change tempo, decides to blow some harp, or not, and basically composes the song on the spot depending on the feel of it.

    Very organic musicianship on display, and certainly something Zeppelin had in spades back in the day which separated them from their “peers”.
