Jimmy Page (January 1969): "The Marquee was fantastic - just great. We were totally knocked out when we came out of there. We thought they might have had it in for us because at the that date, we were still calling ourselves the Yardbirds - we hadn't thought of using Led Zeppelin yet."

Ed Bicknell: “Peter couldn’t get anybody from the agency to go and see them. I was in London on my own so I went down to the Marquee and was astonished to see a queue right down Wardour Street and into Old Compton Street. There must have been 300 people standing in line. So I joined the end of the queue and eventually got in to see this gig. My memory was they didn’t play many songs. “Jimmy was banging away with the violin bow, so I guess they did ‘Dazed And Confused’ and they did a rock’n’roll medley at the end with some Little Richard and Elvis Presley numbers." [Chris Welch, Peter Grant book]
