A HARD DAY’S NIGHT… WITH JIMMY PAGE? WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?
“Get back, get back, get back to where you once belonged.” Jack is back and it’s been awhile…and it’s been Jack’s back keepin’ him from gettin’ back this whole time…Go figure.
Many thanks to Mr. Steve Soest, Orange County California’s #1 Guitar Guy for “Keepin’ It Real” and holdin’ down the front spot of the blog while I’ve been away and all this has been goin’ down. Actually I think of Steve as the #1 Guitar Guy period. I wish I could send all my guitars down to him for a refresh and a few for a complete overhaul!
Well regardless of all that, let’s get to this story. The age I was when the movie “A Hard Day’s Night” hit the scene made a pretty darn big impression on me, thus making it my favorite movie of all time (and Eddie Deezen can surely attest to that and back me up on this one…By the way,thanks Eddie).
I find this almost unbelievable…me, writing about Jimmy Page, especially since I was really miffed over the years concerning the Randy California Spirit Taurus Led Zeppelin Stairway To Heaven thing…and then the outcome of that ridiculous baited circus of a trial (what a joke!!!). Thanks a lot Your Honor! After all, the first time ever I heard Stairway To Heaven, I thought, how can this be? That was pulled straight from Taurus by Spirit!!!
I wasn’t even going to mention anything about the Danelectro prices skyrocketing after Jimmy Page was shown on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine’s July 1977 issue, playing a Dano. That wasn’t his fault. Don’t get me wrong about Jimmy. He’s a talented player…It’s just all the song stealin’ stuff that Led Zeppelin is so well known for that has always bothered me. C’mon guys.
And the Randy Nauert Interview…(The Challenger’s bass player) has been waiting on deck to be the next story up to bat for months and months. My sincerest apologies Randy. It’s been getting worked on for sometime and will be coming…And everyone else… You may wonder what gives? Are you gettin’ Jacked Around? The answer is NO YOU AREN’T…The fact of the matter is that some back health issues have gotten in the way along with some work/career stuff and we’re just plain ol’ gonna get plowin’ through it all and get this hotrod back on the highway.
Okay, now it’s time for a bit of redemption for Jimmy that I never even knew about until today. Jimmy Page, you should have said something. Why didn’t any of us know this???
But “A Hard Day’s Night… with Jimmy Page”? Who would have thought?
