This from George…
I am a drummer based in Chicago. I’m a jazz musician by profession but I am a lifelong Zeppelin fanatic and John Bonham maniac. I was recently in correspondence with Andy Crofts when he was writing his piece on the ’77 tour for the TBL magazine. I thought he did a great job on the piece and he was the one who recommended I get in touch …

So this is Christmas…
TBL Retro Christmas Reflection 1:
 Christmas always bringing with it that air of nostalgia, so here’s a seasonal TBL retro reflection from 1972:
ALLY PALLY 45 YEARS GONE:
45 years ago on Saturday December 23rd  1972, I was lucky enough to be in attendance at the closest gig Led Zeppelin ever played to Christmas in the UK. It was a cold  dank day and the walk up Muswell Hill to the Alexandra Palace was a bit of a trek. All worth it of course, as this very impressionable 16 year old was …

WHAT THE PAPERS SAID:
Events that have so much resting on them rarely unfold with such an air of assurance. The three original members of the band seemed to be relieved to be relinquishing the burden of anticipation. The heaviosity has always been the cornerstone of their reputation but it was astonishing to see how funky they could be for a rock …

Here’s another 02 Experience….
This comes from Donato Farace of Mississauga,Ontario Canada:
Right from the announcement of the show, I booked a flight to London right away. I was determined to be there even if I did not have tickets to the show. I figured I should at least be there on sacred ground and feel the reverberations coming from the building.
As it turned out I got far more lucky …

I Was There…
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Led Zeppelin O2 Reunion concert was that fans had travelled from all corners of the globe to be there. One such fan was long time TBL supporter, Jose Manuel Parada who travelled from Ecuador and met a fair few of us when he was over. Here is just one example of the unforgettable life affirming experiences that those lucky …

IT’S THE 02 REUNION TEN YEARS GONE WEEK ON TBL WEB – TODAY’S POST TBL ARCHIVE 2009:-
Two years gone and it still seems like a dream. Watching the DVD and playing the vinyl and CD’s today reminded me of the surreal feel that surrounded the whole event. Of course I’m taking about Led Zeppelin at the 02 Arena on the second anniversary of what for me will ever be etched on my brain as the experience of a lifetime. There are some lovely comments on the 02 show by Robert …

Looking back at my diary entry for 28 years ago this very day it started off as a fairly ordinary Thursday.
The night before I’d been to see Rod Stewart at Wembley Arena with good my friends Max, Phil and James .
It was a pretty riotous night – the diary notes that I consumed 6 vodka and limes and a Harvey Wallbanger in the pub before …
