I attended the LZ gig at the Toby Jug Pub in Tolworth. The next time I saw them was headlining at the Las Angeles Forum, 20.000 seats!
I remember JPJ walking through the car park hand in hand with a lady and carrying his bass guitar in it's case. My memory tells me they had arrived by train.
RP & JP arrived together in a Jaguar driven by JP...He must have had some money by then!
LZ paid their dues big time, slogged around the World & made it happen.
They remain for me the definitive Blues/Rock band with the timeless killer riffs & the talent to smash it live.
Forget TV talent shows, manufactured pop, instant fame..LZ were true raw talent that conquered the World!!

At last! Confirmation that it was indeed Led Zeppelin I saw for ten bob (Or was it twelve-and-six?) in the back room of a run-down boozer on the A3. So many people have said "Oh yeah?" over the years when I claimed to have done, I was beginning to doubt it myself.

If memory serves - it was nearly 40 years ago, and I was 17 - the first album had just come out in the US, and they played it to about 120 people. Much hair, many trench coats.

I was there too. Like Chris Herring, I was 17 - no problem getting into pubs at that age in those days - and went with my mate Peter Graham. Drove there in Dad's old Vauxhall Viva. I remember we didn't think we would get in, because the band was already so well-known, but I don't remember any problems with crowds being kept out. It was a tiny room, about 100-120 people as Chris says. The 'stage' was about 6 inches high at most. I'm sure they did 'Dazed and Confused', 'Communication Breakdown' and 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You', but can't remember as much as I'd like, so would love to hear from anyone else who was there. To think they played 152 gigs that year, would be in San Francisco just 2 or 3 weeks after playing the grotty Toby Jug (they must have been paid less than £10 each to perform there). Saw the Stones in Hyde Park a month later. Great memories - those were the days. Apparently the Toby Jug was knocked down in 2002. Tesco's bought it - what an impoverished world we live in now.

I attended the Toby Jug show. JPJ arrived by train with his lady and carrying his bass in it's case. Plant/Paige arrived in Jimmy's Jag saloon. He already had money.

Great show.

The next time I saw them was headlining at the Los Angeles Forum.

Greatest blues/rock band in history. Hands Down.

LZ, I'd be fascinated to chat about the Toby Jug with you - I'm researching it. Get in touch if you get a mo. timharrison444 at hotmail.com

Thanks, Tim

For me, a standout gig.  I was right up by the stage, only feet from JP. I count myself so lucky to have seen LZ in such a small venue. Must have been one of the last times they played small - stadium rock was about to begin.
