It was a great gig but started off not too good when Jimmy Page turned up late much to the crouds disapproval. This was something new, we had not seen anything like this before, and loud!! Thye only thing that came close to this in volume was the Who. But this was a brilliant show and all the material was new for us. I've been a fan ever since.

I'm glad someone remembers this gig, I don't and it was me who booked them! - I was the Social Sec on the Union at the time and me and a guy called Si (?) used to book all the bands through Tobin Entertainments, who were somewhere in London, where I do remember, we always had a very good lunch. I'd like to pretend that we based our choice of bands on quality, but in reality it was on recommendation and price. I don't remember (this was the late 60's, if you get me) how much Led Zepp cost, but I do remember we got Pink Floyd for £750.00 and they were the dearest band we ever had. We very nearly had Tyran Rex at the college - they were booked and didn't show up! I got 3 local Bromley bands in within an hour and the night went very well and no one asked for their money back. As always, I saw the bands half an hour before they went on and made sure they had everything they needed and were fit to go on and then after that it was back to business, making sure the security didn't beat people, especially students, up or the outside bar didn't rob us blind and a thousand and one other things and never actually saw the shows. I'm glad people liked the shows and that we picked some very good bands and that Union funds-wise they were a great success. :)
