Rafael de Swarte from the support act, Tyres, comments on the gig:

Tyres’ pinnacle of achievement was supporting Led Zeppelin at the Roundhouse the day the Beatles’ White Album was released in 1968 – 40 years and three days ago.

“It was an exciting time, and just before Zeppelin headed to the States. John Lee Hooker was hanging around backstage watching.

“It was a good gig, except at one point the guitarist was left playing nothing – his lead had come out. We look around and John was peering around the curtain looking at us, with the lead curled around his foot! We never worked out if he was joking, clumsy or trying to get us to stop.”

This gig took place on the day that Robert Plant married Maureen Wilson - apparently they held the reception in the hall between the soundcheck and the performance!
