DAVE LEWIS DIARY: JUNE IN DECEMBER/ZEP FEST 2011/SNOW/TBL28/WORLD CUP/30 YEARS OF NOT CONTINUING AS THEY WERE

It may be winter outside….but in here it’s been flaming June courtesy of the recently surfaced soundboard tape of Led Zeppelin’s opening night at Madison Square Garden on the evening of June 7th 1977.  I know exactly what I was doing that day as it was the celebration of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee and I was toasting Her Majesty in several Bedfordshire public houses. Over in America, Led Zeppelin were barnstorming their way though the first of six nights at the legendary New York venue.

Above: DL points to where the England goals need to go -World Cup 2002 Totnes Close Arena
The morning after the night before…and that Sunday morning feeling.  Not the start we were looking for. It all  looked so positive after four minutes.. but that optimism soon fell away –  Robert Green’s goalkeeping error was almost beyond belief.  But it happpaned  and we needed to recover. There were chances in the second half but they were not taken. Full marks to the USA who made it very difficult.
Yes, we’ve seen it all …
