ON THIS DAY… 19 DEC 1978
I WAS RECORDING IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR AT POLAR STUDIOS, STOCKHOLM

Midway through the final week at Polar Studios in Stockholm with a few guitar overdubs and the final mixes undertaken, I was now well on the way to completing what would become Led Zeppelin’s final studio album, to be titled ‘In Through the Out Door’ — Robert Plant’s title.

I PLAYED STOCKHOLM WITH THE FIRM

After the ARMS tour, Paul and I decided to make some music together. The Firm recorded an album and here we are on the first date of what was to be a substantial tour of Europe and the Americas. We were really looking forward to this gig. The band was good, the material was good, the audience was good. There is no doubt that there is a Swedish aesthetic and when you looked out into the audience it was inspiring to say the least.

I RECEIVED THE POLAR MUSIC PRIZE WITH LED ZEPPELIN

On this day in 2006, I attended the Polar Music Prize Ceremony at the Konserthuset Royal Philharmonic Concert Hall in Stockholm, which is the same venue as the Nobel Prize Ceremony.

Nina Persson of The Cardigans performed ‘Whole Lotta Love’ at the concert hall. Conny Bloom sang and played acoustically at the dinner reception.

Every year, the Polar Music Prize is awarded to someone from the field of popular music and someone from the classical world. This year it had been awarded to Valery Gergiev, the passionate Russian conductor.

THE 2006 POLAR MUSIC PRIZE IS AWARDED TO THE BRITISH GROUP LED ZEPPELIN, ONE OF THE GREAT PIONEERS OF ROCK.

THEIR PLAYFUL AND EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC COMBINED WITH HIGHLY ECLECTIC ELEMENTS HAS TWO ESSENTIAL THEMES: MYSTICISM AND PRIMAL ENERGY. THESE ARE FEATURES THAT HAVE COME TOP DEFINE THE GENRE ‘HARD ROCK’.

LED ZEPPELIN APPEARED ON SWEDISH TV

The band ethic during the promo for the first album was to play live on TV and mime on radio. At this Swedish TV show, they wouldn’t let us play: we had to mime. I think the level of sarcasm shows through. Robert Plant was brilliant on this one.
