Led Zep at Belle Vue 1971

This was about my fourth or fifth concert ever. I was 14. I remember that Jimmy's twin-neck received its own applause when the guitar tech put it on the stand. I was in the cheap seats behind the band with my next door neighbour and musical mentor Steve Innes, and halfway through the gig the band turned the gear round and played to us. Large cheer from those of us back there...

Later in life I got to play with Robert, when he was a guest of Fairport Convention, where I was a multi-instrumentalist for eleven years. He came and played a 40 minute Zeppelin set in the 1993 Cropredy Festival and I got to be Jimmy Page. I also played on his solo album Fate of Nations and I met him again at Cropredy this year (2008) when he performed Battle Of Evermore with Kristina Donahue (daughter of guitarist Jerry), as part of a 40 year tribute to Sandy Denny. Top chap.

This 1971 show changed my life forever, and I have made a living from music since I left school. Incidentally I saw a great gig by Deep Purple in the same venue on Decimal Day, February 1971.
