Knebworth '79

I think everyone loved Led Zeppelin in my village of Merley, Wimbourne. We did try and embrace new bands and movements, but Led Zeppelin were always our favourite.

I was desperate to see Led Zeppelin at Knebworth, but my father found employment overseas in Singapore, so unfortunately all I could do at the time was read the reviews.

At the time the critics (I thought) were tough on Led Zeppelin, mainly as new wave bands and
punk remnants were topping the charts. Times and fashion had changed, and the mighty bands
were out of favour.

I remember sitting in Queensland College Of Art in the early 1980's when SEA OF LOVE came on the radio...WOW it was great to hear that voice, that guitar again! From then on I have yearned to hear the band back together.

I have purchased most of the solo projects including COVERDALE/PAGE and revelled in
the magical moments, thinking about the 'glory days'.

To me each member of Led Zeppelin is a vital ingredient, and each ingredient is required
to brew the magic. I think it is fantastic (amazing) that Jason Bonham can fill his fathers shoes...John bonham would be so proud!

Oh, and KNEBWORTH...I bought the LED ZEPPELELIN DVD when it was released....
and I thought the Knebworth show was very powerful!

I still pray that one day I get to see Led Zeppelin...Please come to Brisbane!
