Knebworth

Caught the train from Doncaster to Stevenage, and walked to the site. Queued quietly to get in - a few guys ran at the fence and climbed over before security could reach them, probably tired of waiting. Found a spot towards the rear where it was a little less congested. Fairport Convention playing 'Sloth' was a highlight and seeing my all time hero Todd Rundgren was amazing.

Before Zep appeared, bonfires were lit around the festival site giving an ethereal feel as well as providing a little warmth. Hearing the opening chords of 'The Song Remains the Same' sent my heart racing and my knees trembling. As well as the obligatory standard (and magnificent) Zep songs it was wonderful to hear some of my personal favourites such as 'Nobody's Fault But Mine', 'Over the Hills and Far Away' and 'The Rain Song'. 'Kashmir' and 'No Quarter' were majestic and Jimmy's solo with the laser was spellbinding. An unforgettable day - proud and privileged to have been there.
