John's brother Mick recalled the show in his book "My Brother John":

"The place was packed and as the band launched into their opening number, the venue erupted. The end result of course was a great night for band and audience. Apart from a slight hiccup involving the pal who'd accompanied me. Eddie Povey was another soul brother, and he decided it would be a good idea to holler "Sock it to 'em Jimmy!", just as Pagey was ripping into a great solo. For a split second, I swear the place went quiet as everybody looked around to see what idiot could have shouted such a line in 'Mothers'. Being as we were the only ones wearing Ben Sherman shirts surrounded by a sea of flower jackets and perms, it didn't take long to come up with 'it must be one of them tossers'. Heads down, we watched the rest of the show until it was time to go backstage and meet the band, where Eddie had to go one better and tell Jimmy that if he kept it up he could be a good guitarist. John and I looked at each other in disbelief, and then he smiled widely and gave me a right pisser round the side of my head (only a fun one), then said to me 'Give that to you mate on the way home'.
