De Montfort Halls

I was there. My mate Mick Jewitt and I actually ran the disco, named by Ian Lavender, 'the Stuart Craig Disc Package', all part of the uni's 'rag week'...so we were on stage setting up, and we met the band when they arrived.

We spent some of the afternoon playing our records...through our VOX AC30 PA system!! Moby Grape of course from the Rock Machine sampler. I saved Jimmy Page's life, so thank me...the story follows: Mr J Page was trying to connect the bare wires cable for his Sunn amp to the 15A round pin sockets in the 'dips' on the stage...we could see sparks jumping, it's so dangerous as those were the bad old days before earth trips and RCDs...christ he could so easily have been electrocuted...so we lent him a plug from our toolbox...never saw it again naturally. But at least he was connected up properly with no danger.

Mick Jewitt had a front tooth knocked out in a fight that night, during the long drum solo I think. We got their autographs, which I sold a few years ago...but never mind, I was there, and we heard them at their early best, natural, loud, extended but not indulgent, young and happy.

I should add that Chalky White and the Decoys were a great local soul band, brass section and all...who often played the colleges...lovely guys, very happy memories of seeing them at the 'tech' college among other places...

Lastly, I paid the band at the end of the gig, as per their contract...they played about 2/3 hours...and got £175 cash...and were delighted to have all the money there and then. All true, I have a great memory, no errors...email me stuartlangford@hotmail.com for more Leicester music memories. x
