Trying to make up for all the money he missed out on because Plant had the intelligence to say no to a Zeppelin reunion tour?

For that price, he'd better be prepared to come and read it to me himself.
 
2010-08-25 11:03:05 PM
I know some people that wouldn't balk at that. Me, not so much. I bet it's a good read though.

Would you want that, though?

Not on your life, but he'd better be prepared anyway. ;~)

Of course you know his sentence structure will be disjointed and sloppy at times, and his tempo will sound forced...you would be better off getting the studio version of the book on tape.
 
2010-08-25 11:36:25 PM
...and most of the stories would also be stolen from others.
 
2010-08-26 12:06:51 AM
For that price I hope he stayed inside the lines.

The Jimmy Page book looks pretty cool. (link goes to publisher's website.)

Why shouldn't a limited edition signed book bound in rich Corinthian leather cost as much as an Iphone?

True. You can do more with the biography.

Cool.

650 images across 500 pages. Is it a giant coloring book?

The price is a little high but not unreasonable. It'll be worth three or four times that in a couple years.

Signed editions of George Harrison's memoirs, published by the same company, are now selling for $5K (and they were going to $2-3 when he was still alive).

I will buy this if it has a full chapter on Lori Maddox

C'mon subby! How do you miss the obvious "and half of the book will have been copied from the autobiographies of various sharecroppers" joke?

A connect the dots book would cost less and have more relevance.
It may actually be the same thing.
Ramble on.
 
2010-08-26 06:47:41 AM
Will it include the story of how he met the devil at a crossroads in Mississippi and sold his soul in exchange for learning how to play the guitar? And also how he was black at the time?
 
2010-08-26 07:01:34 AM
The chapter on the Live Aid reunion will be hopelessly garbled.

This he will blame on Phil Collins.

Even if they do, you won't get the feel of the rich Corinthian leather.

I like how Jimmy Page is always smiling. It's like he's enjoying his life.

He becomes more ethnic with age.

Why do all of the bands from the late 60's hate the poor people of the world? Concert tickets are hundreds of dollars, books about their careers are overpriced ($688!?) and some of them refuse to sell individual songs on itunes and other sites.
 
2010-08-26 10:58:44 AM
Did he write it himself, or just plagarize someone else's?

Moroccan leather, not Corinthian.

Because, like most people from that generation, they've all become greedy, money obsessed assholes. Page doesn't even really make music anymore, as far as I can tell. Hell, the only member of Zep still creating original music is John Paul Jones. Though his involvement with Them Crooked Vultures is a complete waste of his talent, at least he's out there making new music.

Funny thing is after a few listens I think his bass playing has improved over the years. Can't say the same for Pagey.

now what do you think? a good deal, huh?

Jimmy is a Legend in his own mind. what's left of it.

Like it or not, the future of the publishing business is expensive collectibles and e-books.

well, that is true to a point. truer still however is that the teenage fans of those 60's bands grew up, stopped being dirty hippies, got jobs and wives and lives, started earning money, and now have the resources to spend retarded money on nostalgia so that they can relive their glory years. It is the same reason a 1984 boxed Megatron transformer toy is now worth hundreds of dollars. remember this - today's kids are tomorrow's consumers. Parents of today - hang on to your kid's toys. they just might be worth a fortune when your kid turns 30.

Every time I see Page currently, I wonder if it's the first time he's picked up his guitar in 18 months.

Yet Allan Holdsworth still rips.

Are we talking 'bout PRACTICE? Sheeeeeiiiit. Practice, man. Practice.
 
2010-08-26 05:44:40 PM
Anyone interested in Led Zep should go to their "Official" website and poke around a bit. What a bunch of farking loonies.

I wouldn't put any more pennies in the coffer of this dude. He has enough farking money.

Contractors must be charging more for those stairways now.
 
2010-08-27 12:29:18 AM
Just think... If Billy Mays was still around to sell it, it would be roughly $688, before shipping and handling fees.. or $1,356.19 after.

Page... The guy who not only let Puff Daddy destroy an amazing tune by yelling "Come wif me" over it, but he actually played it live on SNL for P. Diddy, thus cementing his involvement in one of the worst things to be done to classic rock, ever.

Fark Page. He went for the money.

Y'know, I love Zeppelin, but that's a hard point to argue. Even more painful is knowing all those times when a Zeppelin track would have worked for a movie and the band said "No.", but Page said "Yes." to that travesty.

Every bit of the proceeds go to benefit SATAN!
