This was my first ever gig

It definitely took place at Sunderland. I'm looking at my ticket now. They opened with Black Dog and Rock And Roll, I think. The album (Zep IV) wasn't yet released and no internet in those days, so no-one had heard these songs before. They sat on stools for the acoustic part of the set, playing the songs from the B side of Zep III.

I was a bit dazed (and confused) by it all, never having been to a live concert before. Couldn't believe I was seeing the gods I had worshipped in Jackie magazine and on my dansette for the last couple of years.

My and my mate wrote our phone numbers in the dirt on their van - then spent the next couple of days worrying ourselves to death in case they phoned!

How would you explain that to your mam at the age of 16, in 1971, in suburban Sunderland?

So - they shook me all night long allright. Well - for 90 minutes or so.

Just been to see Robert and Alison in Paris. Very wonderful in a different way. Just fantastic to hear that (the?) great rock voice singing those tender harmonies. The band were terrific too. Worth every penny of the flight/hotel/ticket.
