LED ZEPPELIN'S 50th ANNIVERSARY PLANS?

107 posts in this topic

100% THAT is the birth date. And what a moment that seemed to be. JPJ recalls it in interviews and it's spine tingling to think about.

There was a thread on this here a while ago. Aug 12 1968 is the alleged date of the first jam which took place in a rehearsal room above the old Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club at 39 Gerrard St. The building is still there. Hallowed ground for us Zep fans. 

Rather than being above it, the rehearsal room was the old site of Ronnie Scott's, before it moved (in 1965) to its current site in Frith St. The building above at street level is now a Chinese restaurant called Ykkusan.

 

 

ETA: I know they rehearsed Train Kept a Rollin, and apparently As Long as I have You, but does anyone know what the other songs rehearsed were? I wonder did Page introduce the others to Dazed & Confused this early, or was that at the rehearsals at Pangbourne before going off to the Scandinavian dates?

Ok, I thought I read it was a space above the club that was rented out for rehearsals. I remember seeing a copy of an ad for it in the paper. I didn't realize it had moved to Frith St so long ago. I've played there several times. Really great jazz club, though it's changed a lot since being renovated in 2006.

Yep, they rented the space out after moving while they stilll had the lease, presumably purely to make extra cash. The first pic at this link

is Ronnie Scott's as was pre-65. (Londonist.com has quoted 19th Aug '68 but I've seen both dates given in various sources)

The Glastonbury festival is due to take a 'fallow year' in 2018, a break that occurs every six years to allow the land to recover, although founder Michael Eavis suggested he would revoke that plan if a certain band agreed to perform. He said that he is 'already regretting' the decision to take a year out and, while he didn't reveal who the band is that could change his mind, he did add: 'It's not One Direction.'

Go ahead and speculate
