For years my son kept telling me to find out if there was something out there to look at . I kept saying I dont have time. So when I found this forum , I showed him, all I got was from him was "I told you so".. So yes I think I needed this mystery solved for me too. But still have questions, why me ? Why RP pointed at me ? The bigger question why he wanted to give me the tambourine ? Did he give out other tambourine to other fans in concerts? So now I'm trying to remember when he gave me the tambourine. I know it was not in SIBLY. So I'm now going over the DVD to see if any cameras caught it. The girl in the film bears a striking resemblance to Shirley, the younger sister of Robert's wife at the time, Maureen. According to Led Zeppelin's manager Peter Grant, when he first met with Robert Plant in 1968 Robert confided in him that he was in love with two sisters, but that one of them (Maureen) was pregnant. Peter gently suggested perhaps she was the one Robert should marry, and indeed he did about three months later. I can tell you for certain there is no video footage in circulation of Robert presenting a tambourine to anyone during those New York concerts. If it happened as you claim to recall, it was almost certainly after the conclusion of Stairway to Heaven given that is the song during which he held a tambourine.
