Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has revealed how he dealt with brutal weather when performing with Robert Plant in Wales in 1994. Jimmy Page revealed why Led Zeppelin rejected a Woodstock offer a few days ago.
He wrote, “On this day in 1994, Page and Plant recorded at Corris Slate Quarry, Wales.
25 years after the last Sunday of Woodstock, in a doomy slate quarry in Wales, the various musical personnel of the Page and Plant outfit performed ‘Nobody’s Fault But Mine’, ‘Gallows Pole’ and ‘When The Levee Breaks’ which was quite appropriate at the time as it was pouring with rain almost throughout the shoot!”
Jimmy Page recently revealed how he was savagely disrespected at a Robert Plant show. The United States Justice Department filed a friend of court brief a couple of days ago supporting Led Zeppelin in their “Stairway to Heaven” copyright lawsuit regarding the Spirit song “Taurus.” Randy ‘California’ Wolfe is no longer alive, but his estate trustee Michael Skidmore has sued the mighty Zeppelin multiple times over the alleged ripoff, with some big names like Tool recently voicing their support for Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones.
The Justice Department has stated that the trial judge got the ruling right when they said the only work subject to copyright protection was the sheet music, as the song was written before Congress changed the law in 1972, protecting sound recordings. Led Zeppelin got a resounding victory in June 2016 when a Los Angeles jury decided unanimously in favor of the British rock icons. Skidmore appealed the ruling and last September three judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals announced a new trial, as they said there were ‘erroneous’ instructions given to the jury. Led Zeppelin haven’t been an active band in years, but a former Greta Van Fleet manager said their singer is capable of fronting a Led Zeppelin reunion.
