Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham True Story

 

Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham True Rock Star Story

In 1970, the band held a press conference in a Copenhagen art gallery. A critic started conversing with Bonham about a painting. Bonham cut him short and asked, “Do you want to know what I think of this paintin?” The critic answered, “Yes.” Bonham lifted the artwork off the wall and smashed it on the critic’s head. Bonham asked, “Are there any other paintings you’d like me to critique tonight?”

The Rolling Stones Some Girls Reissue

 

http://www.flickr.com/photos/28648431@N00/62164680

Enthused by the contemporary influences of punk and disco, the Stones’ 1978 offering Some Girls was easily their best since Exile on Main Street, spawning such hits as “Miss You”, “Beast of Burden” and “Respectable”.

And as the extra dozen outtakes confirm, there was plenty to spare, from the rollicking R&B of “So Young” and Chicago blues of “When You’re Gone” to the frowsy country style of “No Spare Parts” and the Hank Williams cover “You Win Again”, with Ronnie Wood’s lachrymose pedal steel curling around the songs. The opener “Claudine” is a Jerry Lee Lewis-style rockabilly rave-up, in which Jagger doggedly breaches PC protocol with his advice to keep the safety catch on when pistol-whipping one’s wife. It all adds up to probably the best Stones album since… well, since Some Girls, actually.

Jimmy Page found guilty of possessing cocaine.

 

Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page was given a 12-month conditional discharge after being found guilty of possessing cocaine.

Jimmy Page, Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin broke up in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham at Page’s home, The Old Mill House at Clewer in Berkshire.

For some time Jimmy Page refused to touch a guitar out of sadness for the loss of his friend Bonham, but he eventually made a return to the stage at a Jeff Beck show in March 1981 at the Hammersmith Odeon.

Also in 1981 Jimmy Page joined with Yes bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White to form a supergroup called XYZ (for ex-Yes-Zeppelin). They rehearsed several times, but the project was shelved. Demos of these sessions have turned up on bootleg and they reveal that some of the material emerged on later projects, notably The Firm’s “Fortune Hunter” and Yes songs “Mind Drive” and “Can You Imagine?”. Page would later join Yes on stage in 1984 at Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, Germany, playing “I’m Down”.

In 1982 Jimmy Page collaborated with director Michael Winner to record the Death Wish II soundtrack. This, and several subsequent Page recordings including Death Wish III soundtrack (1985), were recorded and produced at his own recording studio, The Sol in Cookham, which he had purchased from Gus Dudgeon in the early 1980s.

Mick Jagger apologizes for Some Girls racist lyrics

 

Mick Jagger apologizes for racist lyrics in “Some Girls” on October 6, 1978.

The Rolling Stones, Some Girls, Mick Jagger

Some Girls is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1978 on Rolling Stones Records, catalogue COC 39108. It peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, and became the band’s biggest-selling album in the United States, and has been certified by the RIAA as having six million copies sold as of 2000.

Mick Jagger is generally regarded as the principal creative force behind Some Girls, a conception that, though disputable (Richards was present at all of the sessions), is plausible considering Richards’ various legal entanglements at the time (see below).

Jagger claimed in a 1995 interview to have written a great number of the album’s songs (though when the amount was pointed out to him he denied that the record was mostly his own), including its signature song, “Miss You”. In addition to punk, Jagger claims to have been influenced by dance music, most notably disco, during the recording of Some Girls, and cites New York City as a major inspiration for the album, an explanation for his lyrical preoccupation with the city throughout.

There was some controversy surrounded the lyrics that Mick Jagger wrote to the title song, an extended musing on women of various nationalities and races.

The line “Black girls just wanna get fucked all night” drew strong protests from various groups, including Jesse Jackson’s PUSH. Jagger famously replied, “I’ve always said, you can’t take a joke, it’s too fucking bad,” although he was reportedly more conciliatory to Jackson in private, as he claimed the song was intended as a parody of racist attitudes. Saturday Night Live cast member Garrett Morris would have the final say on the controversy with a mock-editorial on the show’s Weekend Update segment: After giving the impression that he was going to openly criticize the Stones, he quoted a sanitized version of the “Black girls just…” line, then stated “I have one thing to say to you, Mr. Mick Jagger… where are these women?!?”
