On This Day 03 April

It started long ago. It's not over yet.
1968 03 April On This Day The Yardbirds' last studio recording session

  • 1970 Led Zeppelin - Macon GA at Macon Coliseum
  • 1977 Led Zeppelin - Oklahoma City at The Myriad
  • 1979 Bonham, Page & Plant encore with Bad Company - Birmingham England at Odeon at Theatre 
  • 1986 The Firm - Uniondale NY at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum
  • 1995 Page & Plant Unledded Tour - Philadelphia PA at The Spectrum (day 1 of 2) 

The five tracks recorded by The Yardbirds on this day were not released immediately. Avron Knows, Hold On Me, Spanish Blood, and My Baby appeared on The Yardbirds' 2000 album, Cumular Limit, while Knowing That I'm Losing You reappeared as Tangerine on Led Zeppelin III.

If you don't listen to anything else linked below, listen to Jimmy Page's guitar work in Spanish Blood.  Um... PG rated at the end, but that's not why I'm recommending it.

John Bonham, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant jammed with Bad Company at Bad Company's Birmingham Odeon gig on this day for the encore numbers, Long Tall Sally (featuring Page and Bonham) and Going Down (featuring Plant, Page and Bonham). You would think that someone would have recorded this, but apparently not.

Gene Simmons, his wife Shannon and son Nick happened to be at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York when Ross Halfin walked over to say hello. When Gene saw that Jimmy Page was with Ross he grabbed his phone to take photos.  When the photos were posted by Gene, his comment was, "Hail the RiffMaster of them all"
