Guest Appearances

Recommended Posts

I've heard the shows where Led Zeppelin is joined by Keith Moon, Simon Kirke and Mick Ralphs. Does anyone know of anyone else who has joined Led Zeppelin on stage (and the date of said appearance also if possible)?

Also this, which I posted in an older thread:

Jerry Greenberg (who became president of Atlantic Records in 1974) told me about jamming with Zep at the Garden. It was either '70 or '71 and he said Bonham invited him to join in on percussion (congas) during the middle of Whole Lotta Love.

Wouldn't this be something interesting to know more about? If this is true, it would be cool to find her.

Something about Richard Cole playing castanets in Japan springs to mind...

I heard about that but it was something different. Maybe it had something to do with Richard Cole. There was a show I remember listening to, maybe it was Copenhagen 5/3/71, that he played congas on.

I can't find my copy of John Bonham: A Thunder of Drums but I seem to recall there was a picture of Mick onstage with John in the book. I could be wrong, but I know I have seen one somewhere.

I think I remember what it was now. Hamburg 3/21/73, was anyone invited onstage to play the theremin while Page played the guitars parts for the first part of Whole Lotta Love? You can here someone playing it in the backround.
