I went to this show to see " The New Yardbirds" and like everyone else was blown away by the sheer energy, originality and creativity of the band. They debuted a couple of nights later as Led Zeppelin but on that fantastic night in Liverpool we were treated to most of the stuff that appeared on the first Led Zeppelin album as well as a number of out and out R & B and Blues classics. When Robert Plant introduced the band, Jimmy Page launched into " Smokestack Lightning " and that, if I remember correctly, segued into " How Many More Times "
I saw many bands in Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester during the 60s and 70s but none left such a tremendous impression on me like Led Zeppelin. The only band that came close in terms of sheer stage presence and energy was Jethro Tull in Manchester some time around 77 or 78.I saw the Page and Plant tour in Tokyo in the 90s and that was pretty amazing too. I wish I could have been there for the reunion concert in 2007.

I too was at that gig along with my best mate Baz and the girl who four years on would become my wife! I don't think that ANY OTHER BAND has had such an influence on me than has the mighty Zeppelin.They surpassed even Hendrix in their influence on my playing and their music is as fresh today as it was all those years ago!
