1974---TSRTS-John-Bonham-Santa-Pod-Raceway-filming.jpg

'Skin Flick' (1973)  --  Led Zeppelin skin-beater, John Bonham paid a visit to Santa Pod Raceway recently to be filmed at the controls of Clive Skilton's AA/Fueler. The filming was for a full-length feature about the group that includes the sights and sounds at two or three of their biggest concerts plus some incidental material about the guys themselves.

As Mr. Bonham is a bit of a car freak, it was decided to include a slice of drag racing film to complement the sound of a pretty wild drum solo from John. Obviously, a film not to be missed, so keep an eye and an ear out for it sometime early next year. [by Roger Philips]

Surprising to see this in the news at the time, which must have been late November or early December 1973.

The Daily Oklahoman (November 25, 1969)

Interesting to note this late November 1969 cancellation, as at the moment I show no other dates were scheduled between the last Fillmore West gig (Nov 8th) and this one (Nov 29th). There must have been other cancellations?

Hmmm I'm reading this as possibly referring to Nov 22. Fuller was speaking on Monday the 24th; the report states the concert HAD been cancelled. Thanks for finding this article, Steve!
