Notes:

John Bonham books the Lafayette Club in Wolverhampton for his wife Pat's 21st birthday party. The band members all attend and take to the stage.

John's brother Mick described the night in his book "Bonham By Bonham":

“The party itself was a great success. The place was full of friends and family so I spent more of the night dancing with Pat’s sister Beryl and friends Ross, Jill and Joyce until the highlight of the night was about to commence. John took to the stage along with Jimmy, Robert, John Paul and they began to stun the audience with some superb music. They really were amazing and everyone was enthralled with this exhibition of unbridled talent. Like me, most people present had not seen the band before and were all amazed as I was.” - Mick Bonham

The Laf

Hi Les

I'm doing my dissertation on the Wolverhampton music scene and Club Lafayette. I note you were playing at the Club on John Bonham's wife's birthday. I just need some information and was hoping you could help. To my knowldge LZ played at the Laf twice, the first time was 17/10/68 was this the second official date? Or was it an impromtu performance? Also I would appreciate if you could comment in greater detail on the event please as so far I have a lot of Led Zeppelin were great comments? How popular had the band become by this time and what were your feeling knowing they were there too at the time considering it was in the early years of their career.

Any help would be very much appreciated
Thanks
