On this day 24th February 1975, Led Zeppelin released their sixth album Physical Graffiti in the UK. Recording sessions had been disrupted when bassist and keyboard player John Paul Jones had proposed quitting the band, supposedly to become choirmaster at Winchester Cathedral, England, although in reality he just needed time to rest after Zeppelin's demanding tour schedule.

6th March 1971, Led Zeppelin appeared at the National Boxing Stadium, Dublin, Ireland, the group's first show in Dublin, where they played 'Stairway To Heaven' live for only the second time. A local review the following day said; 'Stairway to Heaven was one of the new numbers which starts off in a relaxed way and builds up into heavy rock. Page switched to a twin-necked guitar with six and twelve strings and featured some nice finger-style work in the introduction'.
