Ah yes the emaciated, heroine-ized, sweat drenched Jimmy Page of 1979. Knebworth must have been amazing to be at...but god damn the audio is another story. Im a huge zep fan, but those shows were their last cry to be heard before the 1980 tour and then we all know what. Thank god Jimmy and Kevin Shirley picked out the better performances to be put on the DVD. Regardless, the pics are still awesome.

I saw Zep in '72, '73, '75 and '77.... I am a huge fan. Ive been lucky enough to meet Page, Plant and Jones, never Bonzo but Ive jammed with Jason Bonham and he has been to my home... with each passing year Page's playing slipped, but thats not a revelation. One thing that can be said is that although through the years their abilily as performers decreased they still always gave it their all, even at Knebworth. Page's playing at Knebworth was not very good and his tone was awful. A good friend of mine is friendly with Kevin Shirley. A lot was done by Shirley to the Knebworth audio to make Page more listenable. Delay and reverb and depth was added to his guitar tone to help smooth out the rough edges....

Well..... I saw Page on the tour he did with the Crowes 3 times and I did not see any
slippage that you desribed. I have been playing myself for about 20 yrs, so I know a little bit. He really does not get out enough any more to really tell what type of playing shape he is in. He always had a little slop in his playing, but I think he can still light a fire.

Just kinda curious what do you do in the musical field that would have you rubbing elbows with Jason and having knowledge what Kevin Shirley does?

Ive talked with the caveman myself as well. Yeah I mean if you pull out the dvd's and audio from both Knebworth shows, you can tell they really edited the hell out of them. Regardless id give my left nut to be at Knebworth. I wasn't to keen on all of Page's guitar choices haha, esp. on misty mountain hop. Oh and Page from the Black Crowes shows is a different page then the zep era page. I mean 72-73 you could start noticing minor changes. And 73-75 you really could. I wont go into 77 haha. Once again, id give anything to see zeppelin even 77, but yeah, performance wise, page was strung out. Personally, I dont know how he even stood on stage and danced around with a les paul for 3 hours given the drugs he was on and the size of his body haha.

Nice pictures of Zeppelin. Bonzo was unreal when he sat down behind a drum kit.

Haha without a doubt Page is still my hero. I mean he got me out of the classic rock phase by expanding me to blues and jazz. And hes my core root on guitar. I can never shake his style out of me, and I really dont want to either. I cant count the times ive sat down and watched TSRTS movie with a guitar. Bonzo is untouchable as far as im concerned.

What I do in the musical field is not important. I have been playing guitar for fun not profit since 1972. I currently play in an Allmans Tribute Band again for fun, although we take the music and our performance seriously....

Rubbing elbows with these guys is a matter of good fortune, nothing more. My closest friend is best friends with Jason. So for that reason I have spent a lot of time with Jason whenever he is in the NY area. And when Jason toured with Page in '88 I got to spend time with Page. My buddy is also friendly with both Jones and Plant. So I have been able to spend some time with them as well. The time was brief because I am not interested in being a groupie, but considering I worshiped these guys when I was a kid of course I was going to take the opportunity to meet them. And yes my buddy is friendly with Kevin Shirley too. And I only mentioned that to bring up the points being made here about Knebworth. If you listen to the boots of Knebworth and the final recording on the DVD, you will notice quite a difference...

Now as far as Page goes, we are all entitled to our opinion. I happen to he a big fan, back in the day every waking moment was spent around Zep, it was absurd really how much of my life was that band. But that doesnt mean I cant criticize Page's playing or the band in general. I never talked about his 'slippage' during the Black Crowes tour, we were talking about the last days of Zep. I enjoyed the hell out of the Black Crowes tour and I happen to think his playing was much better then than it was back in the Knebworth days of Zep. BUT although his playing has gotten better since he has gotten clean and sober, sorry I dont think his creative process or his choice of phrasing is anywhere near the early days of Zep. I think the heroin took its told on his mind as well as his fingers. You say youve been playing guitar a long time. Even if you listen to his generally good performance during the Crowes or Page Plant tour of '98 (when he was on the road a while), you cant tell me that his creativity and inspired playing can come close to lets say his playing on No Quarter and Dazed from '73....

I was at the first Knebworth show. Hell of a day. Only time I ever saw Led Zep. Beautiful weather which is very rare over here. Southside Johnny, Commander Cody and Todd Rungren also played. Marshall Tucker Band were booked put pulled out the week before. Knebworth was a fine place for a festival. The legend has been somewhat undermined by some of the "pop" acts they've had in recent years or maybe that's just me being an old snob.
I've heard bootlegs from that day and they sound pretty poor but for an 18 year old it was a magical experience!
