I START THE OUTRIDER TOUR IN ATLANTA, GA

This marked the first date of my first solo tour in the United States primarily. The band comprised of John Miles, vocals and keyboard, Durban Laverde on bass and Jason Bonham on drums. These guys had featured on my Outrider album and we were to feature material from that album and from my past going back to The Yardbirds.
Also on this day in 2008, ‘It Might Get Loud’ premiered at the Ryerson Theatre in Toronto, while in 1968, I arrived in Denmark prior to our first show of the Scandinavian tour for Led Zeppelin.

I PLAYED THREE SHOWS IN DENMARK WITH THE YARDBIRDS

On this day in 1967, the four live Yardbirds played these three shows in Denmark, warming up for a distant American Tour. It was a similar strategy to be deployed less than 15 months later for the New Yardbirds/Led Zeppelin.

The picture shows the Vox Electric 12 string guitar that I was to use on Yardbirds ‘Tinker Tailor’ and Led Zeppelin ‘Thank You’ recordings.

LED ZEPPELIN PERFORMED AT K.B. HALLEN, DENMARK

On this day in 1970 I performed at the K.B. Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark, with Led Zeppelin. We were prepared to play as “THE NOBS” because an irate relative of the Zeppelin airship family, Eva Von Zeppelin, threatened to sue us if we used their name in her home country.
