The band were called the New Yardbirds at the time and were performing at a Danish school youth club.

The New Yardbirds comprised the four famous Led Zeppelin members:

  • guitarist Jimmy Page
  • bass guitarist and keyboardist John Paul Jones
  • drummer John Bonham

Their precursor, the Yardbirds, included Page, playing experimental music such as using a violin bow on his Fender Telecaster guitar, and a number of other influential artists, such as Eric Clapton.

“I’d been looking forward to hearing the Yardbirds again,” he says, “but when I arrived, I saw a handwritten poster, stating, ‘The New Yardbirds’. Then I knew something was wrong.

“Imagine that you had bought tickets to The Beatles and then ‘The New Beatles’ turned up instead.

“Only one of the original members was left in the band – three completely unknown musicians.

“But when the New Yardbirds came on the stage and started playing, I was happily surprised by their energy.
