In the growing excitement about the upcoming reunion I just had to post this. What a band, I was lucky enough to see them in the early days in a small club and it was an exhausting experience. Keith Richards is regarded as the Riffmeister, but I think Jimmy Page is right up there with him. Zep stuff sounds just as exciting now as it did then. I just hope they can pull off this comeback.

This clip is an early one. JP is on the Telecaster.

Good clip, wish I had been in the small club to see them. Small clubs are fun and sometimes people get to know each other and that makes it even more fun.

It was a staggering experience. They'd just come back from their first American tour and where I was sat on the dancefloor I was literally just beyond spitting distance from them. That and a similar close encounter with Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac were the two best gigs I've been to.

I am a huge Zep fan and your question is just the reason I wish they weren't doing it and if they do don't even try to do it like they did 30 years ago. I loved the music that Page and Plant made made 10 years ago in their No Quarter DVD. They had more acoustic and vintage instruments and worked with musicians from Morocco and Egypt. If you want to relive the past buy the Led Zeppelin DVD or the new TSRTS DVD. I hope this concert shows a more mature and sophisticated Led Zeppelin.

My bloody mate who I play with the most often phoned me today to tell me an old friend of his has got two tickets and is taking him. Jealousy is a wicked emotion.

My biggest concern about the new show(s) is Plant's voice.  Even in the old days he seemed to have trouble hitting those high notes at times.

My gut feeling is that the trio of Page, Jones and young Bonham will be great, even though I still think Page looks like the long lost twin brother of Mrs. Doubtfire....

Tonight's the night!  Zep takes the stage in London tonight!  In fact, It's probably going on right now...

I hope the rock the joint!

I found this set list for tonight's show:

'Good Times Bad Times'
"The set started with a clip from 'The Song Remains The Same' DVD with an American news clip telling of they broke The Beatles' attendance record for a gig in 1973 in California. Simple stage set, video screen behind the band."

'Ramble On'
"'Ramble On' done in extremely slow, bluesy manner, with shards of electric guitar from Jimmy Page."

'Black Dog'
"Page wearing dark shades, quite muddy sound. Crowd singing the 'ah-ah' bits back at Plant."

'In My Time Of Dying'
"Page is playing bottleneck guitar. Plant spoke for the first time before song, saying 'Good evening'."

'For Your Life'
"That's not something you get to hear often these days, Led Zeppelin giving a song its live debut."

'Trampled Under Foot'
"Before starting Plant told the crowd it was the band's attempt to sound like Robert Johnson's 'Terraplane Blues'."

'Nobody's Fault But Mine'
"There are huge screen's dominating the O2 Arena, they split into four sometimes, goes monochrome, colour etc...quite spectacular."

'No Quarter'
"Following the song Plant paid tribute to John Paul Jones, who played keyboards and bass on the track."

'Since I've Been Loving You'
"A bit of a style guide for you, all the band are dressed in black bar Page who is rocking a white shirt. As for the song they gone for the epic version....very bluesy."

'Dazed And Confused'
"Settle yourselves in, we're expecting a ten minute version of this classic... it was. At the end of it of the song Plant told the audience 'On guitar Jimmy Page, just as he did on 'The Song Remains The Same' DVD which was filmed in Madison Square Garden in the 70s."

'Stairway To Heaven'
"What do you think happened? Right! From the moment those opening notes rang out the whole audience went absolutely crazy. The atmosphere is electric. Afterwards Plant said "Ahmet, we did it!"

'The Song Remains The Same'
"A fairly straight version of the classic. The sound is still a bit muddy and quiet though."

'Misty Mountain Hop'
"Plant kicked this one off by praising the job drummer Jason Bonham has been doing, stepping into his late father's shoes tonight."

'Kashmir'
"Yet another epic, as this song cracks the ten minute mark. Plant introduced this one declaring 'We've got people from 50 countries here and this is the 51st'. Afterwards they left the stage to loud applause. Will they do an encore? What do you reckon..."

'Whole Lotta Love'
"... of course they come back to deafening applause. And it's an extended version of the old 'Top Of The Pops' theme. Then once more the band leave the stage with a visibly emotional Plant declaring:
'Thanks to everybody. Thanks Ahmet Ertegun, this one for is Ahmet Ertegun as we remember the days when Atlantic Records was the best label on the planet!'."

'Rock And Roll'
"Just time for one more, as after two hours the night reaches its climax, and what a stomper to go out on. And after the hype, the millions of people who entered the ticket ballot and the speculation, Led Zeppelin's reunion show is over. A one off? We dearly hope not."

A review was posted in our local paper. Gave them an A ++

Plant and Page still got it all and the #1 son drummer boy was a huge hit.
