"we finished the record in 30...36 hours......8 hours" ....Dude i know the drugs were good in the '70 but how do ya get 8 hours cunfused with 36 hours...Now i want to hear hours of interviews with this guy.I saw Jimmy live in the late 80's at the ritz in NYC..i was only about 38 feet fom the stage i mean 8 feet from the stage and ole' Jimmy was wacked on herion.Jimmy was not sallowing the spit in his mouth,insted her would just slobber out a cup ful of spit all over himself.the dude was drenched in spit and sweat.The crowd was horrorified with this,and this went on for the whole 2 hours... All that said i got to see a very different Jimmy years later when he toured with the Black Crowes,Jimmy was on top of his game and he wasn't drooling all over himself..Im looking foward to seeing Zep if i can afford the ticket prices....

Jimmy's been a mess since the late 70s, he was better for most of the 90s and played technically very well for the Page & Plant tours, and Crowes gigs. but now combine his rough past with old age and his generally annoying english accent and you're right he's borderline unintelligible sometimes, but it's not that bad for a guy who, by his own admission, should have been dead years ago.

And I was just about to get all riled up, thinking this was about our precious Lil Jimmy.

I've been really trying to listen to it lately thinking that he's saying that its "36 hours....in actual hours" but I guess this will be the same way as Kelsey Grammer's "Oh good/dear lord". The part I can't stand is immediately after that when he says something about imagining the cost of the studio time.

"........and it sounded good."

yeah, this bugs me too for whatever reason. It also doesn't help that one of my long time friends has been a Led Zepplin fanatic for years and every time we talk about music, he's always got to make some sort of LZ/Jimmy Page reference even if it's a stretch to what we're talking about. He must have told me at least 100 times about how Zep produced all their own stuff, Page is a guitar god, the band were a bunch of wild and crazy guys on the road, blah blah blah. Mainly because of him, I'm burned out of Led Zepplin. :mad4:
Plus, he used to have this mix tape in his car years ago that he ALWAYS FUCKING PLAYED everytime we drove somewhere and I swear to God, it was like Chinese water torture listening to the same ten songs over and over and over and over......:arrrh:

Yeah the ZEP commercial that runs on 202 has no replaced "H-A-R-R-Y" as the most annoying one in circulation

He does indeed say "in actual hours".

Which only enrages me more, because what the fuck else would we expect you to mean, Jimmy. When you say "hours", what unit of measurement which the human race has delineated to represent the passage of time did you expect us to think you meant. If you say "36 hours", how could we not expect that to be anything but "actual" hours. It's not as if you say "36 hours" and we really think you mean something DIFFERENT.

The Zeppelin ads on XM are the most godawful creations, and they play them a dozen times every hour it seems. It makes me want to put my fist through the goddamn wall.

I think he means that they weren't just in the studio for a day-and-a-half, they were there longer but the recording itself only took 36 actual hours. As a part-time recording engineer, that makes perfect sense to me.

Led Zeppelin died with John Bonham. You're not going to see Led Zeppelin.

That's it EXACTLY. He was clarifying.... The studio bill was for 36 hours of recording time... spread out over... who knows how long.

Thanks, Tommy Technical, I really needed your explanation there.
