    Zeppelin Mysteries Hosted by Steve A. Jones

    Hi Steve, it's taken me around 6 months on and off to catch up on this entire thread which has been a brilliant read. Regarding The Tube gig, there is an audience recording bootleg of the gig which I have heard several years ago and is a very interesting listen. Robert was full of cold from the start of the show but massive credit to him in that he still tried to get through it. By the end he had has voice had pretty much packed in and I think it was on Burning Down One Side which was was played right at the end when he literally stopped singing. There is a stellar version of Sea of Love which was played about 3 songs in during which Robbie Blunt plays a fantastic solo. My brother attended the gig and got the tape from a known bootlegger in Newcastle a couple of days after the gig. I'm sure my brother still has the original cassette and I will see if he can find this. A second item which was mentioned earlier in the discussion was what was Robert's take on Jimmy playing Stairway to Heaven during the ARMS shows. I know for a fact that he was fine with it as someone very close to me met Robert in Newcastle during The Principle of Moments of tour in 1983. He spent a fascinating couple of hours with Robert at The Holiday Inn hotel just outside Newcatle (which is now known by a different name). I will ask him if he is ok with me posting further details and if so will come back again with an update.
