Led Zeppelin. Coventry

I must pick you up on a couple of points. Firstly, the gig didn't last anything like three and a half hours, as far as I recall. I was 14 going on 15 at the time and I am sad to admit that I did leave during the bomb scare, but so did a lot of others - certainly more than 3%! Also, you can't be a Cov Kid, because the RockHouse (Locarno) was never demolished, only the central tower and staircase. In fact, every time I visit the place, all those fantastic memories come flooding back.
Happy days indeed.
