On This Day 14 March

Break and make
1969 14 March On This Day Led Zeppelin ham it up on Swedish TV

  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - Stockholm at Sveriges Radio TV Studios & at Stockholm Konserthuset; Uppsala, Sweden at Uppsala University
  • 1971 Led Zeppelin - Henley, England at Trentham Gardens Ballroom
  • 1973 Led Zeppelin - Nuremberg, Germany at Nuremberg Messehalle
  • 1975 Led Zeppelin - San Diego, CA at San Diego Sports Arena
  • 1985 The Firm - Inglewood, CA at The Forum
  • 1986 The Firm - Tampa, FL at USF Sun Dome
  • 1995 Page & Plant Unledded Tour - Houston, TX at The Summit 

A marathon of three performances in one day. The first was at the Swedish TV studio, to be filmed miming Communication Breakdown, and this was the first of a number of TV and radio appearances over the next few weeks. The boys appeared to have a good time hamming it up for the camera.

Jimmy Page broke a string at the second gig at the Stockholm Konserthuset, and while it was being replaced the others performed I Got To Move, attributed by Robert Plant to Otis Rush. They sound pretty nice as a trio, though it lacks a certain something. Oh yeah. Guitar.

The second and third gigs' billings were shared with Country Joe and the Fish. Led Zeppelin hit the stage at 11 PM. They were probably tired puppies by the time they were done.

"...if it's a good band, I think very musician is bound to be a strong person in their own right. But it's the way they come together on stage..."
~ Jimmy Page, WYNF Tampa radio interview

I'm not sure why Jimmy Page picked Spirit of Love as his favorite from Mean Business.  He sounded tired and bored and almost seemed to pick the song at random. It does have a great guitar solo in it, though.
