John Bonham's brother Mick recalled the night in his book 'My Brother John':

"I mused on the thought of putting a heavy rock band on stage in a venue such as Trentham Gardens. Set in 1000 acres of woodlands and beautiful gardens... John kick-started the kit into life, making it sound like a pneumatic hammer pounding the snare. The audience knew it was time to rock and Jacko (father) and I stood proudly watching as the boys yet again gave their all in a show that moulded talent with sheer magic."

Led Zep Stoke 73'

Oh Steve, what can I say - I was there to. Had to pursuade my mum to drive me there - nearly didnt make it.
My feelings were identical to yours, i'm 51 now and it could have been yesterday. The sound was amazing, so much power but with great control. I was lucky enough to see them also at Earl's Court in 75' and Knebworth in 79'. All three gigs have there special place for me, but as you say it felt like a real honour to be there on 15/1/73.

I too tried for the reunion gig and missed - rest assured though, if they play again, i'll get there - whatever!

I owned a small shop for a few years (1990) out in rural Shropshire that was part of a supermarket complex and I was standing watching the world go by when Robert Plant walked in front of me with his son. Can you imagine what I felt! I introduced myself and said what a huge fan I was, shook his hand and he was gone - guess that was my 15 seconds!!

I'm a massive music fan - all types, but LZ for me were and always will be the best and by some margin.
