  1. http://www.dmu.ac.uk/about-dmu/news/2017/august/rock-n-roll-colour-footage-of-led-zeppelin-discovered-in-archive.aspx
  2. Chris Cornell has died. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/news/chris-cornell-audioslave-soundgarden-singer-has-died-aged-52/
  3. 'Sunshine Woman' included, missing from the 1997 release.
  4. But you're assuming they had to have THAT album to hear "Fresh Garbage". As Robert Plant stated in his deposition, he heard "Fresh Garbage" from a CBS sampler album, NOT from the Spirit album, and "Fresh Garbage" was played often on the radio, as opposed to "Taurus" which got zilch airplay.

      Eggzellent point.  The bass line's not difficult.  Took me a couple of minutes to get it spot on earlier today.  Remember, though, Jimmy Page owns that album, and a few other Spirit records as well.   I do believe that it's unlikely that Zep sat down and listened to Spirit's "Fresh Garbage."   They are ONLY interested in the bass line, Page and Plant's live performances are certainly proof of that.

  5. I'm not here to argue who is bigger. I'm simply pointing out the list you published without source has inconsistencies on what is included or excluded.
  6. That list was lifted without a source. A Google search reveals it's from a UKMIX forum, which states at the top "This is not a complete list." The list is dated 2009. The author apparently rejected Knebworth because it was a "festival". The list however includes concerts that have multiple artists playing at the same venue. Eg.: 14. Rolling Stones - 1982 - Leeds, UK - Roundhay Park - 120,000 * It neglects to mention that George Thorogood & The Destroyers, The J. Geils Band, and Joe Jackson all played on the same concert bill with the Stones. Stones were of course top billing, but so was Led Zeppelin at Knebworth, so the criteria for inclusion is very loose. An unreliable list IMO.
  7. There is a valid reason why Freddie Bannister would deny Peter Grant's figure. His festival was licensed with the North Herts District Council for a maximum of 100,000 people. By Peter Grant announcing to the press a crowd in excess of that, he ended up having his licence cancelled by the North Herts Council for breach of conditions and was also fined £150. This is why Bannister steadfastly claimed a figure under 100,000. Knebworth went ahead for 1980, but only after Bannister paid a bond of £25,000 to council and made assurances the crowd would not go over 100,000 again.
  8. Spirit never toured with Led Zeppelin. They played a total of three shows, two of them music festivals.
