From Led zep.com

[July 16] "Up to 100,000 songs recorded and filmed between 1966 and 1991 by Bill Graham, the American concert promoter, languished in an underground basement in San Francisco for more than 10 years after his death. Bill Graham Archive Bill Sagan, a health company executive turned rock entrepreneur, who has now launched negotiations aimed at securing the stars’ permission to release their music. This weekend he was flying to London for talks with lawyers representing British rockers such as Led Zeppelin and the Who." [Article - London Times]


Wonder if Queen will try anything.

Whoah, that is interesting news! But I'm not quite sure I understand the article...does that mean this guy recorded various songs at live shows between 1966 and 91?

I think this was already discussed some time ago in Queenzone. It seems that this guy has one of the most valuable archives in the world.

Take care

I really hope there are recordings from Queen in there. They don't mention Queen in the articles about that archive altough they played a lot of gigs in that period there.
