Press: LED ZEPPELIN press man BP Fallon was beaten up during Zeppelin's first concert at Green's Playhouse, Glasgow, on Sunday night. The band were playing two nights in Glasgow, and there had been some confusion over tickets - plus some forgeries in circulation.

Fallon was trying to sort things out, and approached someone who he'd been told had been selling tickets outside the theatre. "I'm not big enough to be aggressive, even if I wanted to be," said Fallon on Monday, "but I went up to him and said I understood there'd been some confusion about tickets." The guy and two friends jumped on BP and beat and kicked him. He was cut and bruised, but on Monday was "hobbling around" without serious injury. "Frankly, I'm glad I didn't get a knife in my back," he said.

Glasgow police took away a number of tickets, and were planning to keep a close watch on people selling them outside the theme on Monday. On Sunday night, some people paid £5 for £1 tickets to see Zeppelin. [12/72]

GIVE US ROCK 'N' ROLL!

I saw both of the concerts at the Green's Playhouse and was only 16 at the time. I still have both ticket stubs in a framed photograph of the band and everyone who sees this is always impressed. During one concert, I was at the front of the divans overlooking the stage and the stalls beneath. I had a great view. At the other concert, I was near the front in the stalls. Anyway, after the band played their first song there was an unusual hush for a split second when the band were preparing for the next song. Suddenly, during this hush, a guy at the front of the stalls shouted out, "Give us Rock 'n' Roll" only for Robert Plant to say to him, "We just played that!" The whole crowd burst out laughing and from my place up in the divans I saw this guy sit down. I'm not sure whether Robert Plant will remember this but I'm sure there is still some wee guy in Glasgow at the moment with a red face recalling this incident..... Rock 'n' Roll!
