I read something about a Zepp reunion possibility, but didn't believe it. Any chance you can give us the link?

Look for Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' collaborative album to be out soon, with some tour dates to follow.

Chuckels has total credibility in my book--I believe he's batting 1.000 on every prediction/scoop he has ever posted on this Forum, including things like Derek playing with Clapton.

Zeppelin is a show I might have to sell a kidney for I wouldn't necessarily expect them to match the original version, but just to hear those songs live would be worth it to me.

I haven't seen Zeppelin in London since 1975 ... this would be one heck of a finale to this years concert trips if it comes off

This may be a good excuse to go visit my friend in London - I've said I would go visit her for 2 years now and never came, this looks like the one.

Thanks Rob, I try and to be accurate, missed 1 or 2.

Stones also will be doing set. What I am hearing is 30 minute sets for Cream/Zep/Stones.

More to be added!!!!

Can't we fairly easily trace the ABB back to Ahmet thru Tom Dowd and get them a slot on the 'bill'...?

Dana, we can get even farther back and tighter than that. Back when Duane had first recorded the Hey Jude sessions with Wilson Pickett--late 1968, a few months before the ABB lineup materialized--FAME Studio owner Rick Hall played the tapes for Ahmet's longtime partner Jerry Wexler (with Ahmet and Nesuhi Ertegun a co-owner of Atlantic Records) and knocked his socks off. Wex bought up Duane's contract from Hall right then, and things just steadily unfolded from there.

Shoot, chuckels, the thread title had me envisioning a 6-piece band: Eric, Jack, Ginger, Jimmy, Robert, and J-P!

Yes, if we can add most of the ABB to the aforementioned 6-piece band, Dana.

Gotta work Jeff Beck into there, too.


Call the assemblage Brothers in Arms.

If it's a 30 minute set, then here's my guess for a Zep setlist:

Whole Lotta Love
kashmir
Stairway to Heaven
Thank You

'Twould be historically accurate and correct. But, I suspect that, in they eyes of many, this aspect of Mr. Ertegun's legacy never existed.

Anyone have any idea how much tickets are going to be for this or where in London it'll be?

My guess would be that it will be at the Royal Albert Hall and tickets will probably range from $250 to $500 ... but that is just a complete guess

So long as its not the freakin Wembley Arena..Saw Zep at Earls Court in 75 and that was a sh1t venue as well!
I reckon they'll play Wembley stadium, Albert Hall (or 15 nights at the Mean Fiddler "Beacon Stylee" )

. . . FAME Studio owner Rick Hall played the tapes for Ahmet's longtime partner Jerry Wexler (with Ahmet and Nesuhi Ertegun a co-owner of Atlantic Records) and knocked his socks off. Wex bought up Duane's contract from Hall right then, and things just steadily unfolded from there.
I should have said, "Rick Hall played the tapes over the phone . . . ." That alone was what blew Wex away. In fact, it might have been the tape, singular, of the "Hey Jude" single alone.

Bup, this is true, since the Allman Brothers were more closely associated with Wex and Tom Dowd. PBS recently had this bio on Ahmet--part of the American Masters series (I watched it 1 and two halves times )--and I can't even remember that the Allman Brothers Band were mentioned more than just in passing as one of several big rock groups the Atlantic Records family signed in the late '60s after branching out from jazz and R&B. Maybe it's because the ABB was more directly under Phil Walden and Capricorn. Then again, the bio made a fairly big deal about the Stax/Volt R&B artists that Atlantic was not directly responsible for, either.

Unlike Wex and Tom, Ahmet didn't seem to have cultivated a personal relationship with anybody in the ABB. Other parts of the bio indicated that each of the partners--Ahmet, Wex, and Nesuhi Ertegun--had his own little sphere. So, you never see Nesuhi getting credit for the ABB or the Cream or Buppalo Springfield .

By the same token, the bio emphasized the acts that Ahmet had more of a direct hand in signing and developing--and schmoozing with--and showed recent little conversations between Ahmet and them. In the rock arena this included Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Mick. Ahmet's stock went down when they showed so much Bette Midler and Phil Collins, and the chronological bio basically ended with Kid Rock! Wrong "Cowww-boyyy!"

So, the Allman Brothers were part of the Atlantic empire but not really part of Ahmet's personal fiefdom within it. No slight.
