Led Zeppelin at Newcastle City Hall 15th January 1970

This was my first ever live gig and cost 8 shillings (£0.40p). I went along as a callow 14 year old with a school friend and hadn't a clue what to expect. Led Zeppelin II had been out for a couple of months and the same friend allowed me to borrow it for one night as long as I brought it back next day. As you did then, the sleeve was crucial and I had poured over it and memorised all the graphics and words. It is over 35 years ago so I cannot remember much of the detail but the sense of power and energy that came from the performance is still with me. I didn’t even know then that such things as drum solos existed so ‘Moby Dick’ came as a bit of a shock! I must have been to over 300 rock gigs since then but this is up there in the top 5.
