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.

Hi, in 1973 I worked in a rock club in Leeds and the night before the Bradford gig some of the roadies came down to the club , if I remember right it was the lighting crew from the Who and the Zeppelin road crew me and my mate Cris ended up back at the hotel till 6am drinking and smokeing with them , they did say J.B. was in a room down the hall but the rest of the band were in Bradford.

The following night we ended up sat at the back of the stage looking down at the band , there were about six of us there all well stoned when the band finished the set the roadies called us off and we stood at the exit as the band came off stage and passed us. so if anyone has any pictures of the Bradford gig you will see past the band to six long haired stoners enjoying the music

What a great show. Robert's voice is still rough although the emotion comes pouring through as always. The instrumental machine is unbelievable though. Black Dog is a wonderful example of the three playing off of each other, and Dazed And Confused is incredible. Page and Bonham have this amazing interplay, and Jones and Bonham throw in just about every time signature at the drop of a hat, creating a great effect. The medley is long and excellent ... Plant throws so many obscure references in ("Well all need someone to cream on"). Zeppelin nearing the peak!

Our gratitude that Led Zep appeared in West Yorkshire led to such long appreciation after every song that the band commented on it at the end of the tour. After skiving off 6th form to queue for tickets it was the best 90 pence anyone could spend, if the sound was a bit poor for the opening number 'rock n roll.' I remember it was like being at a tennis match watching the girls heads moved from side to side watching Robert Plant move across the stage.

The 1980's being so void of authentic rock, apologies U2, Dire Straits, Guns and Roses and Bon Jovi, I bought the original re-mastered digital around 1991 and I have been been totally loyal ever since, favorite track 'since i've been loving you'. If I had been offered a deal with the devil, I'd have sold my soul to be Jimmy Page 1969 -79. Now living in the Phillipines I only wish they would play 'out here' if only in neighbouring Singapore and introduce my growing family to Led Zep as they're already acquainted with the later Beatles.
