    I love seeing the red B bender LP being used in action. In reality it should have been called, "No.2" as it saw more use than the second '59 Page had.

    cool recording of tea for one before they released it. it was originally played at a way faster tempo.

    Thought I'd revisit an old topic. For much of Page's career he had his stop bar decked. In the Foo Fighters '08 Wembley encore (Page and Jones came on) there is a shot where you can see his tail piece is wayyyyyy off the deck. Perhaps a strong gauge change and it was raised to keep the feel of a smaller gauge? Also he only had one thumb wheel under the bridge.

    Cool shot. He didn't take the pickguard off #3 much.

    looks like they are working on a live release project and the mastering engineer jumped the gun on posting about it. he deleted the post.

    Where's the solo project?

    The good thing is that we don't have a statement by Jimmy saying he'll be working on being seen in the coming year. Either that's a message in itself or he's come to grips with the fact that he won't release anything new ever again.

    We are coming up on the 10 year anniversary of the 02 concert. Man, how time flies. Seems just like yesterday they released Celebration day in theatres 5 years ago.

    Ok let's stir the rumour mill shall we? Today I spoke to someone who is on a very good terms with Ross Halfin, longtime photographer to Page. Apparently there is a Zep reunion planned next year for 02. Apparently a two week "house gig". Plant is on board. I imagine it will be the same lineup as 2007 with Jason Bonham on drums. If something like this does go forward I don't even imagine how much tickets would be. The amount of money being
    offered must be astronomical. Let the rumours fly!

    it will be the 50 year anniversary of LZ next year too. for how much robert plant has been in the press lately after his new album released and how much he has reiterated in the past couple weeks that he is over LZ chances are it's just one of those thing, a rumor perhaps coming from a first hand bull session with jimmy.


    in other news the yardbirds '68 live album released today. you can get a signed copy for 400 euros.

    Well I'm not holding my breath either, but the 50th anniversary of Zeppelin would possibly something they could all come together for. Honestly I hope they don't. 2007 was the perfect sendoff.

    I hope they dont just because I dont want to go through the stress of finding tickets :laugh2: my dad and I tried to get tickets back in 2007 which proved impossible. the closest chance was being the right caller to a radio station that had them :laugh2:.

    Twelve-string acoustic Washburn Festival, unknown model. First time I see Page wielding this particular guitar (several other Washburn models though):
