DavidZoso Posted February 3, 2011 Share Posted February 3, 2011 I found a few shots of the soundcheck at Knebworth before the first show that I hadn't seen before and decided to post them. The soundcheck took place on Thursday August 2nd 1979. I am still working on my webpage with all the tours etc and specific shows with unseen and rare photos but until then I decided to do a small photo thread of this. Like I said I had seen some of this pics in the Celebration 2 book by Dave Lewis but some I had not seen. Kinda neat to see Robert playing guitar with shorts on. I have also included a shot of all of them wearing shorts while rehearsing at Bray Studios in 1979 which was right before these photos were taken. While posting this I came across a website after doing a google search and it has first hand reports from road crew etc -here is the link with most of these photos posted there as well. http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/79-Kneb-festival-reviews.html Songs played at soundcheck included. Robert-acapella-"Take good care of my Baby" ,the Bobby Vinton song Rock and Roll Trampled Underfoot with Jason Bonham on drums Hot Dog In the Evening and I have read before that they rehearsed Sick Again as well. Enjoy Rehearsing Achilles Last Stand at Bray Studios 1979 Setting up stage. Setting up stage. Setting up the PA speakers with a total of 110,000 watts. Nice view of the stage lights. Stage Crew Robert was the first to arrive. Testing out John Paul Jones-Yamaha GX1 synthesizer. Possibly rehearsing In the Evening. Soundcheck-Rock and Roll Pic is blurry but I think that is Jason Bonham behind the drums- I know his dad did walk out front of the stage while they rehearsed Trampled Underfoot with Jason on the drums but this looks like they are just messing around here. Another rare shot. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
