Knebworth 04/08/79

This concert was and remains the highlight of my life (wife, kids & God excepted) - it was Led Zeppelin at their very, very best and a life changing experience. They created a magical event that entranced us all as we shared the moment - a moment in time that has shaped musical history and my life. Most people (including my wife) do not understand my love of ZEP - but it is a music and fellowship that moved me both emotionally and spiritually - these guy's understood the soul of a generation. They also spoke to a generation of kid's who were not sure who they were (nuclear weapons, Vietnam, etc) and presented four sterotypes that allowed each of us to feel good about ourselves - Robert Plant the high pitched 'some would say girly' Love God who filled his jeans extremely well, Jimmy Page the slightly framed weaver of magic - often reported as 'sickly' but a collosus on that Les Paul whom nobody would mess with - or could equal when playing with the other three, JPJ who stood quietly at the back and thundered away underpinning the Page and Plant show, and last but definately not least - Mr John Henry Bonham - the greatest goddamn drummer that has ever lived (sorry Jason) and I don't just mean the obvious numbers like Moby Dick and Montreaux - listen to the whole catalogue - he is always there providing the heartbeat (and clealry the erection in Whole Lotta Love). But great sadness is also attached to Knebworth - I have seen Page & Plant since (NEC) and Robert Plant & the New Sensation (Wolverhampton) but - having waited 28 years I cannot get a ticket for the Reunion. So please guy's keep the Zeppelin afloat as (and I know this sounds a bit sad for a 51 year old Psychotherapist from Shropshire) you are part of my life and I miss you like crazy 'Since I've Been Loving You'.

Despite my not being there - I hope the 10th of December becomes another 'Classic' concert that will be forever remembered in the pantheon of ROCK!

God bless you all - Clif
