Oh Mr. Bonham....
|1971 29 September On This Day Led Zeppelin in Osaka, last performance in Japan|
- 1966 The Yardbirds - Stockton, England at ABC Theatre
- 1971 Led Zeppelin - Osaka, Japan at Osaka Festival Hall
- 1995 Page & Plant - Albuquerque, New Mexico at Tingley Coliseum
This performance was a bit chaotic, with John Bonham disappearing from the stage and the other three having to wing it for a while. Years later Peter Grant said that Bonzo and Robert Plant were having a tiff about a minor amount of money from some time in the past. Bonham was also reported to have said he was tired of Moby Dick, and in fact the solo was just 11 minutes long this show.
Perhaps it is fitting that the first and only live performance by Led Zeppelin of Friends was performed at this gig.
