As Robert stated in It happened half way through the set. Judging by the tone of that statement this was a man at a definite career crossroads. Live Aid had put the Zep spark back in his mind. There was a plan to meet with Jimmy and John Paul Jones in Bath for a get together to see what might happen.
As it turned out nothing much did. The rehearsals fell apart when drummer Tony Thompson was injured in a car smash. What happened next?
When I turned up at Leicester University to see a low key warm up date of his new band in JanuaryIt was evident that Robert Plant was at last more than comfortable with his past. For the first time in his solo career, Robert performed Led Zep numbers. In The Evening and Trampled Underfoot felt like a rebirth that night and it remains one of my favourite all time ever gigs. As for me, well Sound FX proved not to be the future of music retail the writing was in the wall when I saw the design of the counter which was made to look like a beat box cassette player complete with hand rail — most embarrassing!
WH Smith sold the chain to Our Price in -a wise move as we were now part of a very successful chain and with the CD boom about to hit, there would be great retail days were ahead. Writing wise, I had formulated a plan for a major Led Zeppelin reference work. Sensibly he revised that view a year later and went with the idea — the result was the A Celebration book published in It was the beginning of what would be an incredible few months. Here is the TBL posting that appeared on the evening of September 12, — one of the most important announcements in the history of this website….
Just back from an incredibly exciting afternoon at the official press conference to announce the reunion of Led Zeppelin. Staged at the O2 View Cinema at just after 4pm, promoter Harvey Goldsmith unfolded the events that has. Central to that of course is the late Ahmet Ertegun. This concert is a tribute to the lasting legacy of the much loved music mogul. Harvey went on to explain how he approached Jimmy, Robert and John earlier in the year to do this show.
Asked if this was the beginning of further reunion activity Harvey would not be drawn other that to say if they were happy within themselves then he would love to see it. Other questions from the floor revealed that there were no plans as yet for the show to be filmed for a DVD release and that a ballot was felt to be the best way to give all fans a fair at obtaining tickets. Throughout the proceedings, Harvey talked passionately and proudly of his past association with Zeppelin -and how honoured he was to be staging what he described as an unprecedented event.
I was able to remind Harvey Goldsmith the story of how he once asked me to take a pic with his camera of himself with Ahmet at the side of the stage before the Zep Frankfurt show in Europe So there it was — all of 14 years gone — the excitement was already mounting…and the end result on that night of nights would be magnificent. In addition, it includes books and magazines, over fanzines and has more than concert-related items. All items featured with high quality images.
A Birthday list — a combination of some albums that have been on heavy rotation here recently alongside some of my all time faves…. There was of course much talk of Andy Adams and I relayed the sad news of his passing to a few of the stall holders who knew him and they were of course very shocked.
The all had very fond memories of Andy which was heart-warming to hear. It was also great to meet up with Richard Grubb and Mick Bulow for the first time in over 18 months. After a very tough week it was good to get out to the Spitalfields Market Record Fair in London yesterday. I think Andy Adams would have approved of these two investments — reissues of the classic Led Zeppelin Going To California and Burn Like a Candle bootlegs… they were two of his favourites for sure….
Very sad to hear Call Me - The Bootleggers* - Hot Mix 2 (Vinyl) passing yesterday of long time friend Perry Izzard who lived in Fishguard in Wales. Such was the demand to see them, they played both an afternoon and evening performance on this day. Support acts were Kracker newly signed to the Rolling Stones label and the excellent Billy Preston who also appeared with the Stones.
Do you know? He brought jazz harmonies and jazz guitar inversions into folk and pop music in a very different way than Brian Wilson did and he should be acknowledged for that contribution. He knows how to play. I have always been proud of my lyrics on this song and others. So to find myself on your list along with Dylan, Prince, Joni, Jackson and all the others is.
The whole industry should come together and push for the right solution for safe concerts and events. Last week we announced proof-of-vax requirements and masking required for our upcoming shows and immediately got a fair amount of refund requests. Small price to pay to try to keep the performances safe and let the crowd not look sideways at each other so they can just let loose and release.
A lot of folks in the industry are afraid to lose just one fan, one sale, one follower. Less anxiety and animosity in the room, the more room for magic to occur. Cancelling for reasons of public health ought to be enough.
When the country gleefully opened back up in June, I was asked to promote about a week of dates with an act that had earlier planned to go out this summer, but whose tour cancelled earlier in the year.
I saw the vaccine numbers at the time trending upward. So I bought. By the time the rest of the dates were about to play, they stopped selling completely. Papering the house? My whole life has been servicing live events around the world and fighting bootleggers outside shows.
I was not at the Green Day show in NYC a couple of weeks ago but I was told to get in you needed to show you were fully vaccinated. I think no matter what conditions are put in place regarding requirements to get into a live event in the land of the free and home of the brave the fuck you mentality will for ever rule. I love your country and everything it stands for but freedom of speech has a heavy price and unfortunately a dark side. World of difference! The choice looks pretty simple to me.
Good points all round. It was what we had hoped it would be, but a lot of those songs weren't finished, so there was still this mystery of not hearing the melodies and lyrics. We wondered, "What are these songs and how do they fit together? Is this a verse?
Bungle album California"especially when it comes to the Faustian scale of it. There remains no definitive form or content of Smileand whether Smile should be considered an "album" has itself been challenged. Furthermore, any effort to guess at what the album might have sounded like would be nothing more than conjecture. He described Smile as a "labyrinth" that exists "in a memory house into which Wilson invited all those who could externalize its elements". As a collection of modular melodic ideas it is by nature organic and resists being bookended.
Academic Larry Starr opined that "the idea there could be a 'definitive' Smile decades after Brian Wilson abandoned the project was always chimerical".

Excerpt from an early mix of " Heroes and Villains ". One of the distinguishing features of Smile was the use of abrupt jumpcuts. But we enjoyed those challenges. A later composite version of " Surf's Up " was completed by the Beach Boys for the album of the same name. Since portions of the instrumental track were missing a lead vocal, one was overdubbed by Carl. A simple rhythmic and melodic theme referred to as "Bicycle Rider" served as a recurring motif on Smile.
It was later reworked into the chorus of "Heroes and Villains". Main article: Brian Wilson Presents Smile. Call Me - The Bootleggers* - Hot Mix 2 (Vinyl) article: The Smile Sessions. These recordings remain unreleased. It wasn't pop music; it was something more advanced.
Religious, right? That's the whole movement. That's where I'm going. It's going to scare a lot of people. And the people who take it all the time, acid heads he can't go along with. Like all those people— Timothy Leary and all—they talk a lot, but they don't really create, you know? He elaborated, "I learned from that book and from people who had a toehold on Every scene will tend to contain unresolved issues that demand settling further along.
But I told Brian that I wouldn't touch it with a foot pole and that nobody'd be listening to the lyrics anyway once they heard that music. But when the finished product is 'Good Vibrations' or Pet Sounds or Smile they hold back their complaints.
The reporter nevertheless added that "The sensational success of the Beach Boys We're all four fans of the Beach Boys. Maybe we voted for them. In one excerpt, Wilson wrote, "Grasping firmly onto the carrot, Brian ate it quickly, and, lo and behold!
Contributor Jordan Runtagh wrote that when Wilson "sought to move the band beyond their fun-in-the-sun persona. Love found the new musical daring pretentious, and feared alienating the fans originally won over by their carefree surfing image. He had a very strong feeling about that.

There are 3 main levels with 3 stages with live music from open to close. I tend to hang out on the second and rooftop levels, as the groups there make sure to mix the music up; the first level typically sticks to more traditional honky tonk music. They typically update their Facebook page with news when someone famous is stopping in, so make sure to check it before you go!
Market price! That means delicious beer for what a Bud Light would cost anywhere else on Broadway. I like hanging out on the back patio, where you get an up close and personal view of the many bachelorette parties, locals, and tourists stumbling down the alley beside the Ryman. Known For: Great food, lots of seating, and a fantastic view of Bridgestone Arena.
You never have to wait very long for a table or spot at the bar because they have ample seating on both levels. The Second Fiddle is one of the classic Lower Broadway honky tonks. Country music memorabilia lines the walls, the vibe is more laid back than the big bars owned by country stars, and the giant fiddles above the bar make for a great snap.
The space is so inviting, the bottles of beer are always cold, and the servers are friendly. Luckily, they have a food menu with delicious eats — try the poblano popper bites! I love Bluegrass music I am a Kentuckian, after all! Still drop in, you might be surprised by a country music icon like Garth Brooks! From the outside, Nashville Crossroads looks like every other generic honky tonk on Lower Broadway, but they are very, very far from!
Crossroads has some of the best music on the strip. Seriously, they only book the most talented folks around. One Call Me - The Bootleggers* - Hot Mix 2 (Vinyl) my favorite things about Crossroads music is that the bands playing tend to play original stuff — a welcome change from the cover bands around the rest of Lower Broadway!
They even a Sunday servicea totally unique experience on probably the most sinful street in Nashville. Decoration around The Stage is like one big love letter to Nashville. The main floor sports a huge mural featuring some of the greats of country music, a giant guitar mounted on the wall, and framed and signed pictures of familiar faces in the industry.
They have lots of TVs showing lots of sports. After the games have played, a typically solo act will hit the stage with some music. Known Call Me - The Bootleggers* - Hot Mix 2 (Vinyl) Having cocktails on tap, lots of whiskey, and the tallest roof on Lower Broadway. First off, the bar started out in Arizona and became hugely popular before Dierks very wisely opened up a location in Music City.
Second, the food here is very wide ranged — they serve everything from chicken and waffles to fettuccine. Upstairs, though, is the real winner.
