Question 84: Where was Stairway first played?

If I remember correctly, it was in Ireland, wasn't it?

I can't remember if it was Dublin or Belfast.

Please correct me if I am wrong. I am going by memory and am too tired to look it up tonight.

I am going from (faulty?) memory here, too, and saying it was in 1971? And I believe that they played it live at a concert in Ireland before the album IV came out at the end of 1971, so no one had heard it before when they first played it.

Edited to say: I believe that the audience was underwelmed by the song at that concert when they first heard it.

Great quiz. Don't forget the references to Tolkien in 'Battle of Evermore'. Have a look at my 'Led Of The Rings' post.wink.gif

And while you're at it, someone point out to the quiz guy that the Tolkien character's name is spelled Gollum, and that the Golem is a different concept entirely. ;)

The Great Zeppelin Quiz Answers

I quickly read through all the answers to your Great Zeppelin Quiz.

I must say that two (2) of your answers are actually (and factually) incorrect.

Question #18: Why did it catch fire? (the Hindenburg). Your answer: "It was filled with Hydrogen, lightening caused a fire on the aluminum skin".

I have read (in books and not the internet) that the Hindenburg burst into flames over Lakehurst, New Jersey because of static electricity. The static electricity caused sparks that collided with the hydrogen thus causing the explosion, not lightening.

Question #51: Where was the first ever concert played as Led Zeppelin? Your answer: "Gonzaga College in Washington State".

I do know that this is actually very incorrect. Plus, this question is very ambiguous. "Led Zeppelin" made their debut as Led Zeppelin on Friday, October 10, 1968 at Surrey University in Surrey, England. Led Zeppelin made their London debut on November 9, 1968 at the Roundhouse (obviously in London). If you actually meant "Where was the first ever concert played as Led Zeppelin?" in the United States, well that answer would be on Thursday, December 26, 1968 at the Denver Auditorioum, Denver, Colorado. Led Zeppelin played Gonzaga University four (4) days later on Monday, December 30, 1968. As far as I know this is the first American gig by Led Zeppelin to be recorded and bootlegged.

Of course I do not claim to know everything about Led Zeppelin, however, I do believe I am correct about these two (2) questions and with my answers. If I do happen to be incorrect, I would really appreciate that someone please correct me.

I shall punish the afformentioned scribe of the quiz with some evil medievel torture instrument like the pear of anguish or something for her mistake, and yes you are correct with the Gonzaga gig, maybe she meant first recorded.

and the fire thing was probably CGI

I dont know when my self, but the early 1970's was right at the start of the "album years" of popular music. With that in mind it doesn't supprize me that it was not very well embraced at first. Hell, the short bit writing of the Beatles was still going very strong in 1971, and the FM radio craze was just getting started to, yeah, FM had been around for some time but not in the genaral sence. It would be a few more years (mid/late 1970"s) before the long version was the big thing, I do remember the cut version's of the long song's of that time frame, I was young but that was about the only thing I didn't like about AM radio.
