  1. No relation at all..I asked him the question a few years ago and he said that it started as a joke and they just went along with it.
  2. Sorry to hear the report of the death of Bill Bonham..he has been mentioned on this topic in the past but for those who might not know him have a look here. http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Bill_Bonham
  3. As most LZ fans are aware the group has a long history with Slade. This FB page just needs liking and/or sharing. Its purpose is just to gauge what,if any ,support their is for the project. If you can spare a few seconds please have a look at this. https://www.facebook.com/sladefilm
  4. PAphotos archive has the pic and description..can't see why they would mock something as trivial as this up.
  5. Missed this for some reason..RP was on a mission.. "15 Nov 1967 : Robert Plant, a nineteen year old Wolverhampton pop-singer visits the office of the Charge d'Affaires of the Republic of China in Portland Place, London, to hand in a letter expressing his interest in the cultural revolution, currently taking place in that country, and offering his services and that of the Band of Joy to the Republic. In his letter he said: "We are prepared to play for a period of time, free of charge, as we feel very strongly about a united world."
  6. A few more from the Derby Evening Telegraph- Friday 9th September 1966 Thursday 3rd November 1966 Friday 4th November 1966
  7. I think it was 1974 when I managed to blag my way into the pub after many years of standing around the offie.
  8. Thought you might like this..taken a few months ago - The original sign from the frontage of the Boat..imagine the tales it could tell :-)
  9. Never been away;-)..just looking in places that Mr Plant doesn't seem to have visited. A couple of questions..1.Who is the person I thought was John Bonham in the earlier pic and 2.did RP ever gig in Scotland pre LZ?
  10. From The Derby Evening Telegraph. Sat 12th August 1967
  11. Sorry..I just accepted what was printed in the paper..schoolboy error
  12. John Bonham recording "I'm a Mod" at the Hollick and Taylor studios in Brum 1964
  13. Yet another version of RPs court appearance..this one is from the Birmingham Evening Mail dated Friday 11th August 1967..I like the reporters rather sniffy use of punctuation marks.
  14. Forgot to say the previous footie outing was from 1970..a few months later and the Bonham/Plant sports career lumbers on. Some nice Brum talent on dispaly I would imagine the half time oranges would have been interesting if the Sabs had turned up.
  15. A solo gig for the Plant/Bonham duo..I realise this doesn't fit in with the pre/post Zep theme but an interesting side project nonetheless. My maternal grandparents lived on the Glebe Farm Estate and every Sunday we would go to visit them and if the weather was good my brothers and I would go down to the Rec for a kick about..their is a very good chance we were there when this match was on..if only I had known
  16. As Kipling wrote "We are of the same blood you and I "
  17. From the Stafford Newsletter 8th September 1967. I like the Flower Power reference.
  18. A couple more from the Sunday Mercury- Sun 22nd October 1967. Nice to have directions to the club becuase a couple of months later you may have needed them- Sun 24th December 1967.
  19. From the Birmingham Sunday Mercury Sunday 16th April 1966 Sunday 31st July 1966
  20. As always thank you Deborah..do you think Rob would accept 30 quid for a gig nowadays..or a kangaroo or monkey?
  21. From the pages of the Birmingham Planet. Friday 25th March 1966 Thursday 22nd September 1966 Thursday 13th October 1966 Thursday 13th October 1966
  22. I have the 2 Marquee gigs listed in "London Live" by Tony Bacon if that's any help. The Mothers gig I have just put on here is for the 12th April 1968..might I suggest that an eight day discrepancy may be due to relying on memory. If their is any specific Midlands gigs I can look for please let me know..I know the Walsall Teacher Training College would be nice :-)
