On this day In 1964, Etta James released the album 'Rocks The House', which had been recorded at the New Era Club some five months earlier. ⁣

Her live recording of the Jimmy Reed song 'Baby What You Want Me To Do' and her vocals from the intro to the last chords is something that has to be heard and experienced. ⁣

Sadly, also on this day, in 2012 the music world lost a legend: RIP,...

On this day in 2001, I saw Iron Maiden perform at Rock in Rio. ⁣

Because I was in Brazil, it gave me an opportunity to take up an invite to see Iron Maiden perform at Rock in Rio. Rob Halford, from Judas Priest, kindly gave me a lift to the site in the helicopter and here is a photo of me backstage playing a guitar that I believe was signed for charity.⁣

Iron Maiden filmed this show with...

On this day in 1969, I played at the Grande Ballroom, Detroit with @LedZeppelin⁣

I returned with Led Zeppelin to play three nights at the underground venue, The Grande Ballroom in Detroit, and this was the second of three nights. These were spirited shows to a spirited audience and on each night we extended our set with encore after encore. I played the Grande with The Yardbirds eight months...

On this day in 1967, en route to Australia, The Yardbirds played at the National Theatre in Singapore.⁣

The National Theatre is in fact an open-air venue and there was a stage fronted by curtains, which we duly set up behind, and eventually it was time to play. The curtains opened to reveal the Yardbirds to the Singapore audience and we were greeted by males and females, all screaming. It...

On this day in 2010, a Peace Concert in Beijing was announced.⁣

There had been a move to do a Peace Concert, hosted by the Chinese Government, at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing and I had been invited to appear. There had been a full-size classical orchestra offered and I saw a possibility of doing an instrumental set including Chengdu percussion and the orchestra. It could have been an...

On this day in 1969, Led Zeppelin I was released in the USA. Produced by me and immediately following the historic run of concerts at San Francisco’s Fillmore. The intervention of a new attitude for the airwaves ⚡ This LP was to present four master musicians and the communion of music with no fear, no compromise and an audible statement that would be groundbreaking and radical. What’s your...

On this day in 1975, I played Ahoy in Rotterdam with @ledzeppelin ⁣

This was the first of two warm-up shows in Europe, with a soon-to-follow US tour. Ian 'Stu' Stewart of The Rolling Stones and 'Boogie with Stu' fame, came to this show. I know he loved hearing the band.⁣

On this day in 1975, I planned to play Boston Garden with @ledzeppelin. On researching for my website, I discovered that on January 6th 1975 there had been an incident at the Box Office at Boston Garden in Boston, Massachusetts that had involved a sale / non-sale of tickets to thousands of fans. Police were called and it all ended with the scheduled Led Zeppelin show being cancelled by Mayor...

On this day in 1977, I was travelling to South America.⁣

I intended to be in Guadalupa for New Year's Eve but began travelling rather late and ended up en route in Mexico City, where I discovered miniatures of Mezcal Tequila - complete with worm - and the pyramids of the sun and the moon. The music on today’s homepage of my website is by exotic vocalist Yma Sumac, who is probably a...
