Today, 9th January, is the birthday of Led Zeppelin legend, Jimmy Page – so happy birthday Jimmy!
For anyone who has not heard (or seen) much Led Zeppelin, I recommend you watch the live concert from Madison Square Garden filmed in 1976 – “the song remains the same” – this is classic Zeppelin at their Rock God best.
I hope everybody has had a good Christmas and New Year. My girlfriend is bitterly regretting buying me the Led Zeppelin biography “When giants walked the earth” by Mick Wall as she has not seen me since Christmas Day. An excellent read and highly recommended.
My original band “Thrasonic” have been rehearsing hard and we recently played a gig at The Greyhound in Beeston, supporting “Aimless”. Last week we played at The Navigation in Nottingham and have been re-booked to play there on the 1st November … very exciting times!
We have some live recordings on our Facebook site so please feel free to have a look at some pictures from the gigs, listen to the recordings and please don’t forget to “like” us!
Tomorrow we are off to a studio to do some recording so I’ll keep you posted about any new material.
For all you budding blues/rock guitarist’s check out Sky Arts 1 on Thursday 18th September at either 9am or if you are a true musician and don’t get up until the ‘crack of noon’, 3.30pm. A virtuoso guitar player playing songs by the man himself!
Just sat in a cold, windy (August!!) West Bridgford listening to “Electric Ladyland” by Jimi Hendrix. If you have never heard this album before I highly recommend you check it out.
The iconic “Voodoo Chile” is perhaps one of the best examples of blistering blues rock guitar playing.
My first post on my blog … so my recommendation is that you get your old vinyl out and find some great old U2 albums – how about “October” – some great tracks on there including “Gloria” and “Stranger in a strange land”. Enjoy 🙂
