On this day in 1968, Led Zeppelin played their first show at the Manchester College of Science & Technology. They were paid a whopping 225 Pounds...which would have been $540 at that time.
I'm pretty sure they weren't looking like this at that gig...
Here's what they looked like performing in 1968. I can't believe this has been on YouTube for over two years and only has 2075 plays. The audience is completely nonplussed and at the end...well, you can check that out.
And here's one more from back then...with only 1404 views. How great would it have been in this tiny audience?
There are more photographs and my great personal story about my experience with Led Zeppelin.
