Led Zep concert - St George's Hall, Bradford. 18th January 1973

Concert at Bradford, St Georges Hall, 1973. I attended this gig, buying a front row ticket from a tout outside the venue (at ticket price) after the doors had been opened and everybody with tickets were off the streets and inside. I presume it was one allocated to the roadies to be sold for their own profit. A name is on the back of the stub. After the gig, a group of fans hung around by the side stage door but I returned to my seat in front of the stage to watch the roadies pack away the gear. I didn't expect Jimmy Page to saunter out from the wings to pack away his guitars. I jumped up for a chat. He appeared tired and wasn't in a particularly talkative mood, giving short answers to my obvious comments and inane questions, the only one of which I can still recall is - "So, how long have you been playing guitar, Jimmy?" to which he dismissively replied, "Too f*cking long!". A succinct and down-to-earth answer, which is how he came across - down-to-earth, no airs or graces, no calling the roadies over to cart me off so he could be left unpestered. I respect him for taking the time to chat with a complete stranger, even though it was obvious all he wanted to do was pack up and go.

Just a little extra - all the way through the gig, John Paul Jones stared at me in a very unnerving way and to such a degree I was forced to avoid his gaze for the entire evening! It wasn't an intimidating stare, just a peculiar, expressionless one; as if he was puzzled why I was wearing a Donny Osmond T-shirt (I wasn't), or rightly stunned by one emblazoned with "Steve Currie is a better bass player than you!" (he wasn't). Odd.
