The Kiss Of A Thousand Tongues

  • Eric Bishop and Justin Forcum managed a tricky escape from jail, stole a pickup truck and scored narcotics before getting nabbed as they tried to head back inside, according to police in McDonald County, MO. Of their alleged great escape and capture upon returning to a little hole they’d wormed out of only two hours previously, Undersheriff Bud Gow said, “”I really couldn’t believe it, I couldn’t believe they came back, you would think if you got out you’d stay out instead of trying to sneak back in.”
  • Danzig found out about the comic done by “art fraternity” Igloo Tornado in an interview with Decibel Magazine and expressed his displeasure, refusing to even look at the creation. Now, instead of turning tail and running, those pesky Igloo Tornado fellows created The Final Blow, a comic documenting what happened when the Decibel interviewer tried to show Danzig the collection, plus an imaginary scenario where their relationship is again misconstrued after the interviewer sees what looks like Danzig giving Rollins fellatio.
  • The Crazy Never Die was produced by the Mitchell Brothers. The Mitchell’s owned the infamous O’Farrell Theatre strip club in San Fransisco. They also produced the revolutionary, mainstream-porn hit Behind the Green Door. Thompson was a sometimes-doorman at the O’Farrell while he was researching his still-unpublished book, The Night Manager.
  • All my life I’ve heard Latin America described as a failed society (or collection of failed societies) because of its grotesque maldistribution of wealth. Peasants in rags beg for food outside the high walls of opulent villas, and so on. But according to the Central Intelligence Agency (whose patriotism I hesitate to question), income distribution in the United States is more unequal than in Guyana, Nicaragua, and Venezuela, and roughly on par with Uruguay, Argentina, and Ecuador. Income inequality is actually declining in Latin America even as it continues to increase in the United States. Economically speaking, the richest nation on earth is starting to resemble a banana republic. The main difference is that the United States is big enough to maintain geographic distance between the villa-dweller and the beggar.

  • “The Led Zeppelin show depends heavily on volume, repetition and drums. It bears some resemblance to the trance music found in Morocco, which is magical in origin and purpose–that is, concerned with the evocation and control of spiritual forces. In Morocco, musicians are also magicians. Gnaoua music is used to drive out evil spirits. The music of Joujouka evokes the God Pan, Pan God of Panic, representing the real magical forces that sweep away the spurious. It is to be remembered that the origin of all the arts–music, painting and writing–is magical and evocative; and that magic is always used to obtain some definite result. In the Led Zeppelin concert, the result aimed at would seem to be the creation of energy in the performers and in the audience. For such magic to succeed, it must tap the sources of magical energy, and this can be dangerous.”

And as a result, most people’s perceptions of the sex trade are wildly out of date.

I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.
  • The nine-year-old body of 9/11 conspiracy theories includes many improbable (and sometimes contradictory) claims, everything from remote-controlled planes flying into the World Trade Center, to a missile hitting the Pentagon, to mass kidnappings of air passengers.

Lori Maddox – Led Zeppelin Groupie Jailbait

i167240669_77897_3

“Lori Maddox was a 14-year-old groupie who had a personal relationship with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page in the early 1970s.

Page became infatuated with the teenage girl after he had seen some pictures she had made for some modelling agencies. During Led Zeppelin’s 1972 tour of America, Page got road manager, Richard Cole, to smuggle her up to his room at the Continental Hyatt House Hotel. Firstly, because she was underage and secondly because Page was also seeing Miss Pamela from The GTOs. A groupie known to beat up love rivals.

Maddox and Page then began a relationship that lasted for several years. During visits to LA, manager Peter Grant kept Maddox locked in Page’s suite because he was so worried about the legal issues.

Nevertheless Page met Maddox’s mother who accepted the relationship because the English guitarist behaved ‘properly and gentlemanly’ towards her daughter.

Maddox was born February 6 1958 in Los Angeles, California. She became part of the groupie scene in the early 1970s when she attempted to break into modelling. These girls were referred to as “The LA girls of ’72”.

She was one the many girls who frequented popular nightclubs on the Sunset Strip such as The Rainbow Bar and Grill, The Whiskey, and Rodney Bingenheimer‘s English Disco.

Her friendships included other Los Angeles groupies such as Sable Starr, Morgana Welch and Queenie.

Later Maddox modeled for Star Magazine in her later teen years. A short-lived publication that highlighted the contemporary Los Angeles groupie scene.

After Page, she drifted around the West Coast concert scene for several years reportedly been romantically linked with famous artists such as David Bowie, the late Keith Moon, Sylvain Sylvain and Iggy Pop.

Today she lives privately in California and currently works in retail.”

” She reportedly lost her virginity at age 13 to David Bowie and Angie Bowie. One of her best friends was Sable Starr, who was the unofficial queen of the scene at the time. Lori, who was also known as Lori Lightning and Lori Mattix, wasn’t as experienced as Sable, but Lori also became a regular at famous Hollywood groupie hangouts…”

” When Lori was 14 years old, she met a man who would change her life: Jimmy Page, guitarist of Led Zeppelin. Jimmy first spotted her when an associate of his showed Jimmy a picture of Lori. Jimmy was intrigued, and when Led Zeppelin stopped in Los Angeles on their 1972 tour, Jimmy immediately tried to get together with Lori. Even though Jimmy was dating groupie Pamela Des Barres at the time (back when she was known as Pamela Miller, aka Miss Pamela of the GTO’s), Jimmy pursued Lori relentlessly.
According to Lori, after Jimmy tried and failed several times to get together with her, Jimmy had Led Zeppelin’s tour manager “kidnap” Lori and bring her back to the Continental Hyatt, the hotel where Led Zeppelin was staying. Lori was brought to Jimmy’s room, where as she described in the Led Zeppelin book ‘Hammer Of The Gods’: “It was dimly lit by candles… and Jimmy was just sitting there in a corner, wearing this hat slouched over his eyes and holding a cane. It was really mysterious and weird… He looked just like a gangster. It was magnificent.”
That night, Jimmy and Lori began a torrid affair, but they had to keep their relationship a secret from the public since Lori was underage and Jimmy was at risk of being arrested. Jimmy was still seeing Pamela (and other women), and the relationship with Pamela reached a dramatic end when Jimmy took her to a Led Zeppelin party but he left the party with Lori. Pamela was said to be very bitter about being dumped by Jimmy, and Pamela considered Lori an “enemy” of hers for years.
Lori and Jimmy were said to be very much in love and they carried on a relationship for the next year and a half. Lori often traveled with Led Zeppelin on tour, but that didn’t stop Jimmy from having affairs with other women. Chrissie Wood, wife of Ron Wood of the Stones, was sometimes in residence. And Bebe Buell, a beautiful model and older woman of nineteen, who was then living with Todd Rundgren and about to make her media debut as a ‘Playboy’ Playmate, was due to arrive any day. At one point, a photographer for rock magazines also found her way into Jimmy’s bed.
Jimmy eventually began dating Bebe Buell and he dumped Lori, when she was 16. Bebe Buell was Jimmy’s designated escort to the Swan Song soiree. Lori Maddox was in a state about this. She had taken a Quaalude and wandered about the party looking dazed, beautiful, bruised. Somehow, she had bloodied her nose, and her snow-white dress was stained a vivid red. As Jimmy and Bebe were leaving, Lori jumped out from behind a statue, crying to Jimmy, “Why are you doing this to me?” Jimmy tried to ignore her and jumped into the limo.
Later, after the party, they all went to the Rainbow, a club on Sunset. Jimmy had an emotional public row with Bebe, who told him he was being cruel to Lori. The next morning, Lori showed up at the Riot House, where she says she found Jimmy and Bebe in bed. She ran out. A few hours later, she waded through the crowd of girls camped outside Jimmy’s suite and knocked on the door. Bebe opened the door with the chain on to see who was there, and Lori attacked her, grabbing Bebe by the hair and trying to drag her out of the room, encouraged by the corridor girls, who hated Bebe Buell as a rival interloper from Back East. Sitting calmly in his suite, watching as two of his girlfriends tried to tear each other’s hair out, Jimmy was amused. Later, he told friends that the whole thing was incredible, hilarious.
A humiliated Lori tried to get back together with Jimmy, but he continually snubbed her. Lori was reportedly devastated and people who know her say she’s never really recovered. Although Jimmy and Lori briefly got back together in the early ’80s, they never went back to the passionate love affair they had when she was a teenager.”
