Interviewer: What do you think of Jimmy Page?
John Bonham: I get on well with Jimmy. He’s very good. He’s quite shy in some ways, too. When I first met him he was very shy. But after 12 months at it, we’re all getting to know one another. That’s why the music has improved a lot, I think. Everybody knows each other well. Now there are little things we do which we understand about each other. Like, Jimmy might do a certain thing on his guitar, and I’m now able to phrase with him. But in the early days I didn’t know what was going to come next. But I still don’t know Jimmy all that well. Perhaps it takes more than a year to actually sort of know someone deeply. But as far as liking goes, I like Jimmy a lot. To me, he’s a great guitarist in so many fields. He’s not just a group guitarist who plugs in and plays electric guitar. He’s got interests in so many kinds of music. So many guitarists won’t play anything but 12-bar blues, and they think that’s it. And they have an attitude of when they hear a rock record of saying, “Oh that’s a load of rubbish.” —John Bonham being interviewed by Ritchie Yorke for the magazine New Musical Express on April 18, 1970.


How to Get Away With Murder’s Matt McGorry & Jack Falahee Prove Just How Well They Know Each Other

I workshopped the musical “The Last Ship,” that Sting put up on Broadway last season. I went to NYU for musical theater, but I’ve never been the strongest singer. I remember going into this audition, and I had to sing 16 bars, and [then] there was a scene. I sang the 16 bars and I had, like, a panic attack while I was singing. Just going through my mind, all of these thoughts: What are you doing? You don’t belong here. They said something to me—presumably, “OK, now let’s see the scene”—and I just said, “Thank you,” and I walked out and left the audition. I got outside and shut the door and my hand was still on the handle when I realized, You didn’t do the scene! So I burst in and just started doing the scene. I thought it was a disaster, and then somehow I ended up booking the thing.

Top scientists respond to gravitational waves discovery

One hundred years ago, Albert Einstein published his general theory of relativity, which described how gravity warps and distorts space-time.

While this theory triggered a revolution in our understanding of the universe, it made one prediction that even Einstein doubted could be confirmed: the existence of gravitational waves.

Today, a century later, we have that confirmation, with the detection of gravitational waves by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (aLIGO) detectors.

Here we collect reactions and analysis from some of the leading astronomers and astrophysicists from around the world.

We’re letting the good times troll with ALL the troll designs! And ALL the troll puns!

To celebrate Troll Dolls coming back into our lives and invading the big screen in November, we’ve launched a Trolls collection that gives homage to the classic Troll Dolls and a nod to the new. And Ralph Pykee Lambaco’s (a.k.a SPYKEEE) winning design gives the critters a new look that proves that they can be more adorable than creepy…creepy is reserved for Furbys.

We talked to SPYKEEE about his band, his art, and, of course, Troll Dolls.

I think about that often. I wasn’t the greatest student. I got by and got good grades and everything, but I think that for me, the acting bug bit me. It was just the first thing that really inspired me, so I don’t know. I think it is the thing that I do because I can’t imagine myself doing anything else, but I do wonder, you know, had I traveled after high school or gone to a liberal arts school and [taken] a more traditional career path, would I have been inspired by something else that would have compelled me to pursue another career?
