Jimmy Page revealed in a new social media post that based on his past with The Yardbirds, initial contracts for Led Zeppelin’s formation demanded that the band play under the name ‘The New Yardbirds’ when they began. Robert Plant was recently stunned by a terrible concert paycheck.
Jimmy Page said, “On this day in 1968, I played Gladsaxe Teen Club, Denmark with The New Yardbirds.
This is the first Led Zeppelin date in 1968. Fulfilling some contractual Yardbird dates, the band was known as ‘The New Yardbirds’.
The setlist for this show included: Train Kept ‘A Rolling, For Your Love, I Can’t Quit You Baby, As Long as I Have You, Dazed and Confused, Communication Breakdown, Flames, You Shook Me, White Summer, Pat’s Delight (John Bonham Drum Solo), Babe I’m Gonna Leave You and How Many More Times.”

Also to see you on screen playing your guitar was thrilling and intoxicating!!!! watching you channel that incredible music through your guitar was mesmerising! Also the things you did on your fretboard was pure Magick to behold.
