Countdown to the Celebration Day…21 days to go.

To mark the impending momentous worldwide screening of the Led Zeppelin Ahmet Ertegun 02 reunion concert on October 17th, we are counting down to the day with a daily Celebration Day Newsletter post. This will feature relevant news and updates plus the TBL Countdown Collection – a daily celebration of Zep moments, memories and artefacts.


A quick update on the forthcoming TBL issue which is due out next month. As can be seen, in the light of current Celebration Day events, the cover has undergone a revision to accommodate the 02 reunion film release activity. This now lines up alongside a variety of news reviews and features.

Mike Tremaglio’s comprehensive 1972 USA tour log is guaranteed to have you searching out those amazing recordings from that esteemed Zep era, Nick Anderson’s guide to their UK singles pressings is a fascinating overview with rare illustrations, there’s an exclusive chat with Glenn Hughes on the state of play within Black Country Communion, Stephen Humphries offers a summary of recent Robert Plant activity from the release of the From The Artist Den DVD through to his Sensational Space Shifters activity, part two of the Warren Grant interview focuses on the post Zep years, Barney Hoskyn’s new book Trampled Underfoot comes under intense discussion with the author himself, add in John Paul Jones recent activity with Mini Bus Pimps and at the Sunflower Jam, Jimmy Page summer watch, Jeff Strawman’s instrument watch, plus Gerard Sparaco’s CD reviews and you have another packed TBL edition.

If you love Led Zeppelin  – you will love this magazine.

If you are reading this and have never purchased a TBL magazine -there is no finer issue to take the plunge than this forthcoming TB 33 – it really is a brilliant issue packed with essential Zep reading that will act as a perfect backdrop to all the Celebration Day activity ahead… I know it’s a bit of hassle to go on to pay pal etc, but I believe the tangible thrill of this issue dropping through your door will be well worth it. 

Having spent many hours collating this issue, I really want it to be seen, read and enjoyed by as many fans as possible.  Click the link below to pre order the single issue – you will not regret it and thanks for all your support in advance..(DL).

Number 8 in the countdown to Celebration Day:

Today’s choice is The Missing BBC Sessions Tracks by Led Zeppelin – a very nice bootleg vinyl LP I picked up last year in Brighton –this incudes What Is And What Should Never Be and Communication Breakdown as recorded on April 1st 1971 at the Paris Theatre London.

Until tomorrow…keep on celebrating…

    The video of Jasons tribute to his dad is just ASTOUNDING ! Jason is a great drummer in his own right and his dad was simply THE BEST. Very emotional to watch as it was when I saw JBLZE in Houston live.
