If they could do let say 15 shows(5 in NY, 5 in Chi. and 5 in LA) spread out over two months that could go a long way to do the final farewell.People would pay whatever the cost of ticket,traveling, etc. At least I and a few of my friends would.
Maybe it’s time for him to go country ;-)
I am younger but I know guys who play tournament tennis in their mid and late 70s.
Oh, that is OK. When Page was with the Firm, in the late 80s I guess, I had a friend who visited London and she saw him at a club, got an autograph for me which was a nice surprise.
I worship at the altar of Buddy Miller.
Yeah, I saw them too in April of ‘77...at the Pontiac Silverdome. General admission was all they had. I managed to get within 20 feet of the stage. Not too bad under the circumstances. However, the crowd was heaving forward, back and side-to-side so much that my friends and I lost sight of each other. Still, it was a great show and I would do it again if I thought I could.
What Tony Blair’s religious conversion and work as a peace ambassador has to do with Rock and Roll, then and now, I have no idea!
They don’t need the money. Plant obviously is not interested. I recall Roger Waters who really burned the bridges with the rest of Pink Floyd realized he wanted to bring the band back at the Live 8 Reunion.
Gilmour was not interested, Mason probably not and sadly Rick Wright died about a year later. Gilmour had said in one interview that Waters mentally beat on Wright and Mason so much that he destroyed their confidence. They needed a back up drummer and keyboard player early in their tour when they relaunched post-Waters.
Being in one of these bands usually becomes just a business arrangement. A lot of people cannot stand being around the others after a while in some cases.
Love Robert Plant but I’m sorry that he can’t belt it out like he used to.
I watched a Biography the other night on the BEE GEES. True talent. There is a lot to be proud of to be able to carry your music from the 60’s to the new millennium. Unlike the Stones, they are not pathetic.
Mick Jagger has looked ridiculous for 40 years......
Re: The Stones - Charlie Watts is not pathetic . At least he enjoys his first love jazz now , and has released some excellent jazz albums in recent years .
Could not be much worse than the WHO during the super bowl
no- the movie was from the 1973 gigs at MSG...
I saw that. My hubby watched it twice and called me in to watch it.
I was so touched by the love and respect those brothers had for each other.
I enjoyed them talking about harmony and the lack of it in music now.
I think they carried that harmony into their brotherly relationship too.
I was thinking more along the lines as a last time for the fans thing. Not a lot of traveling for them, spread out the dates to keep down the wear and tear. Let the fans come to them kind of thing.
Buddy and Julie make quite a pair vocally, no?
Don’t forget the lines taken/stolen from Robert Johnson, King of the Delta Blues...
Why do you think they didn’t pay royalties?
