Oh to be around then..

Some may already have known this, others may not, but Led Zeppelin played their first gig at Surrey University's main hall.  There's a plaque there now and everything (ask me some time about trying to costruct a plaque-revealing-curtain-thing out of a mic stand because the university had lost theirs), but nice to see it on the official site and some press clippings too.

If only any of my "first big dance of the new term" had bands like that.  Never mind, we had B*witched.....

We always used to get bands on the way up and then they came back when they were on their way down.  Who knows, Led Zeppelin may want to play their last ever gig at the place they played their first ever gig.  That would be something pretty special.
