RE: pagey in july guitar world.

hey, i agree!  sometimes i can't tell if chris robinson is just singing with
LZII blaring over the PA or if there's actually a band behind him.
Honestly, I'd rather have the drug-haze Page of the 1980 tour over europe
tour than any of his recent stuff...  it all just sounds too conservative
and uninspired to my ears.  i was listening to the page/crowes version of
TYG and while it was actually kinda decent, i'll take the knebworth version
any day just because it's not so goddamn predictable.  in particular, i love
the outro solo played at knebworth, that's what the tele b-bender was made

there is at least one thing i appreciate page/crowes for though, and that's
for introducing me to some old school fleetwood mac.  i had heard of peter
green before, but never really listened to any of his music until i heard
"oh well".  awesome song, great guitarist, quite a cool band back in the
day...  check out live versions of "rattlesnake shake" whenever you can...
one last non-zep thing:  can anyone recommend any green-era fleetwood mac
bootlegs?  thanks
