I PLAYED NETAID WITH PUFF DADDY

I had been invited to appear at NetAid with Sean Combs - P Diddy - and to perform a short solo set of my own later in the programme at the historic Giants Stadium in New Jersey. NetAid was an ambitious project way in advance of its time with its concept. The charity was an anti-poverty initiative and funds would be generated by the concert via the internet. I was told later the site was so overloaded it apparently crashed. We could see from Diddy’s performance just what an amazing concert this certainly was. In 2007 NetAid became part of global aid agency Mercy Corps.

ON THIS DAY… 16 AUG 1969
I played at Asbury Park, NJ with Led Zeppelin

This was the second day of Woodstock and we played Asbury Park. By that time, the city was awash with tales, stories and rumours of what was happening at the festival. 25 years later, Robert Plant and I recorded and filmed in a Welsh leafy glade ‘No Quarter’, the title track of the Unledded project.

THE FIRM PLAYED MEADOWLANDS WITH LES PAUL

During ‘The Firm’ tour, we were due to play at Meadowlands, New Jersey. I’d hooked up again with Les Paul in New York, and was really keen to introduce him onstage and establish what a tremendous influence he had been on myself and a whole playing and recording generation. Les accepted the invitation and on that evening, surprised me by saying that he had a small investment in Meadowlands going back some years.

A DAY OFF WITH THE BLACK CROWES

On this day in 2000, I had a day off with the Black Crowes after the ‘E Centre’ in Camden, New Jersey. You would probably need a day off after the E Centre in Camden! On the show day, we played this setlist…
