Jimmy Page to host an autograph signing in Toronto, Canada for memoir photo book…

Jimmy Page will host a rare autograph signing for his memoir photo book simply titled, “Jimmy Page” at an Indigo book store in Toronto. The man himself will be making a rare personal appearance to sign his book. The autograph signing will take place on July 21st.

Only thing, the autograph will not be an actual autograph. It’s gonna be a “stamped” autograph. Jimmy will not be signing his name with a pen or a marker. He won’t be stamping other books or memorabilia… he will only be stamping his book. I’m sure fans would want their Led Zeppelin CD’s and posters signed by Jimmy Page but that’s not gonna be allowed. It’s a signing for his book only.

I don’t think he’s gonna allow photos with the fans but he does allow candid photos meaning fans can take photos of him if they please.

What’s with all the strict rules? I know Jimmy Page is not a big fan of autographs ’cause he rarely did them in his career. He probably doesn’t like signing autographs too much which is why he preferred to have them “stamped” instead of writing them by hand.

Anyway, I’m sure going through all this is worth it just to meet the master of guitar in person. Just to walk up to him say, “Hello” and shake his hand would be a dream come true. Toronto would be a 6 hour drive from here and it would be worth it. I probably would be speechless if I met him, probably would have fainted. Kneel down and do the “I’m not worthy” chant kind of like in that movie, “Wayne’s World”.

I saw a copy of the Jimmy Page photo book at Barnes & Noble last week and it’s $60. I’m gonna buy it sometime for sure. I’m the biggest Jimmy Page fan. He’s my no. 1.

Report: Radiohead cancels Downsview Park concert in Toronto due to stage collapse, killing 1 and injuring a few others…

Radiohead, was schedule to perform at Downsview Park tonight in Toronto, Canada, but the band were forced to cancel the concert due to a stage collapsing, which killed one person and injured a few others. The band themselves made the announcement on facebook/twitter, saying fans who bought tickets will get refunds and fans were told not to travel to the show.

While I’m sure, this is angering a lot of Radiohead fans, the band did a good move here, so I’m siding with them. Human lives are more important than music, so Radiohead had no choice but to cancel the gig for good, ’cause it’s for the best. I mean, this could have been Radiohead performing on stage. What if Radiohead were rehearsing before the show? It could have happened to them instead. Plus, they had to cancel the show out of respect for the person that died. Radiohead is just being professional about this.

This is just even more proof that outdoor concerts can be very very dangerous. This is pretty tragic, and I’m sure the guys in Radiohead are scared themselves.
