    I remember reading HE's stories when the world and I were young. Now, all three of us are ancient.

    So true, the world has aged. The sun doesn't shine as brightly, the summer breezes don't cool me as before, and little dog Jack no longer runs happily at my heels! Now where'd that book of Norman Rockwell paintings go...

    Blog feedback:

    Slipped Disc
    Some artists and venues, however, allow audiences to share the experience, pop-style. A few, such as Valentina Lisitsa, actively encourage them to do so, regarding the act of sharing as a democratisation of their art. This tendency is growing more popular and cannot be reversed. We will see more Zimerman-like incidents in the coming months where performer and public do not regard the concert in the same light.

    Adaptistration
    What makes Zimerman’s situation stand out is he apparently went on to lecture the audience on how he has lost out on recording contracts because label execs claimed the performance was already on YouTube.

    Let’s take a deep breath here and set a few things straight. I have yet to meet a record label executive who refuses to engage an artist to record because some half-baked Smartphone recording of a live performance of the same piece was on YouTube. Perhaps Zimerman’s troubles are the result of him not understanding the medium he’s talking about or someone is pumping him full of smoke (or a little of both).


    WXQR (New York radio)
    A growing number of venues find that photography and video are not something to be outlawed but embraced, if in a limited manner.
    Some of the most assertive change is coming from America's regional orchestras, who are determining that more media-friendly policies will help them reach fans who already share concert photos on Twitter and Facebook. Nashville Symphony spokesperson Laurie Davis says in an e-mail, “It seemed a waste not to be taking advantage of our biggest fans.”

    Rock was always like this during the golden age of bootlegs - the Grateful Dead never persecuted anyone over illicitly recording their gigs, and that was at a time when most of their output was live albums. However, if you were caught trying it at a Led Zeppelin concert the chances are that manager Peter Grant would have had your balls on a fork. The rules in the UK concerning bootlegs was muddled - there was nothing to stop you putting in a 'bootlegs wanted' ad in the music press but it was illegal to advertise any for sale.

    Ha ha, despite that I probably have at least 20-30 Zep bootleg recordings. Some are of concerts so long they require 4 CDs! I did not buy any of them; they were sent by request from various members of a Zeppelin forum (now defunct) on which I used to be very active.
