Led Zeppelin. 16. December 1968. Bath.

Yellow Brick Road had a gig coming up on 16. December as support to Led Zeppelin at the Bath Pavilion. The gig was billed as the Jeff Beck Group. But, they had pulled out, so the gig was given to Led Zeppelin who only received a mere £75 for doing it. I remember the night due to the fact that Nick Howell had put his pedal through his bass drum. Martin ran on and changed the drum around, as the band still played. While this was going on, I noticed Jimmy Page and Robert Plant watching from the wings. Robert looked at me and said. ‘Does your Roadie always come on stage if things go wrong when you are playing?’ ‘All the time.’ I answered. ‘Jimmy, we must remember that.’ He remarked. I noticed that Jimmy was just watching as the band carried on playing. That was such a great night. Led Zeppelin would have played ‘The Train Kept A Rollin‘‘ and ‘Dazed & Confused’, both songs that Page had played when he was in The Yardbirds, while others were based on blues standards.
