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."

Trentham gig, I wasn't there, but...

I was too young to be there (6) but enjoyed reading the account of it in Mick Bonham's book about his brother smashing through some huge wooden doors in his car, then hitting the M6 for home only to be driving the wrong way, ending up on the outskirts of Liverpool without any petrol to get him home!

The mystery is, what set him off that night to cause him to depart the venue in an angry state?

I play in Stone fairly regularly and have to pass the entrance to Trentham Gardens on the journey. I often think about Bonzo driving my way home north, up the M6 in a temper, as I pass the gardens...

Having never been inside the gardens, does anyone remember where the gig was actually staged and if the building still exists?
