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

I was at the gig

I was at the gig - as far as I remember they were just back fom a tour (their 1st) of USA. Excellent gig - VERY loud. Jimmy Page played a Telecaster and they had some weird shaped speaker cabs - can't remember the name?

My band (Honda) was supposed to be playing support on the original date (I think one week before), but they were late back from the states so we supported Lowell Fulsome instead! Anyone else remember anything of the gig?
