Hey, does anyone know if Steve Windwood played organ during the New Yardbirds period?
I'm seriously stumped, I heard a recording of Steve Windwood playing organ and Jimmy Page doing a couple of guitar scrapes during an early version of Babe I'm Gonna Leave You. So does anyone know? I'd really appreciate it if someone commented with an awnser!

When I was at school in 1968 aged 16 there where posters about for a led zeppelin record or concert. This would be before I left school in say July latest 1968. This is when I was at Poundswick Grammar school in Wythenshawe, Manchester uk. At that time we had just nearby at this location theGolden Garter club that regularly hosted top name 'stars,(Hollies etc unfortunately hence didn't go!)

Hi

The original organisers of Gladsaxe Teen Club are currently preparing a "revival" - i.a. with the launch of a web site www.teenclubs.dk. The site is not yet completely finalised - but a presentation of Led Zeppelin's (The New Yardbirds) firs concert is already up and running see: http://www.teenclubs.dk/Led_Zeppelins_first_gig.html . We have a number of memorabilia - i.a. the contract between Gladsaxe Teen Club and Yardbirds and photos (both the well known by photographer Jørgen Angel as well as a few never before seen photos).

Best regards

As we have noted a big interest from non Danish speaking visitors at our Gladsaxe Teen Club site www.teenclubs.dk, we have now made an English version of the page describing Led Zeppelin's first ever performance in Gladsaxe Teen Club on 7 September 1968.

All the best

On September 7 2008 the Friends of Gladsaxe Teen Club organised a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Led Zeppelin’s first-ever public performance at the Gladsaxe Teen Club in Copenhagen, Denmark. At the venue (the Egegaard School) a very popular Danish tribute band, Led Zeppelin Jam, performed and the event was a great success.

If you want to get a closer look at the venue where Led Zeppelin played together for the first time you could get a good impression from the live footage and photo collection on this page: http://www.teenclubs.dk/HRE_Video.html .

As you will learn there is a long way from Egegaard School in Gladsaxe to O2 Arena :-)

Hello, I was born on September 7, 1967. So at the first ever gig of LedZeppelin (called NewYardbirds at the time) is was only one year old. However, I'm proud to find out on the site they played on my 1st birthday their first performace. As I am a drummer in a rock and roll band myself, many thanks to the great John Bonham who was the reason I wanted to play on drums. Jimmy, John Paul, Robert and John many many thanks you created so much great songs! Of course as a tribute to all you guys we alway have on our setlist: Rock and roll, + Come on everybody Once again Led Zeppelin is the best ever rock and roll band on Earth!!! I hope you will tour once again to play your great songs!! Kind regards, Ewald Schreurs , Aalten Holland.
