This show was a good chance to catch up with some of my old pals from Epsom."Jimmy Page: "At this point in 1968, I was living in my house in Pangbourne, West Berkshire.
For some time prior to that, I had lived in Epsom in Surrey (when this location was called Ewell Technical College) and I had attended a handful of chemistry lessons at night school back in the day. They are always more than welcome to come back :o) ..........................................................................................................
I think I was more taken up with seeing the Guildford lot!
According to U Surrey web page the university was already there.
My Connection with this concert is thwt my brother was born Oct 25 1968 and I did my Phd in Economics at the University of Surrey in 2004. Hi, I work for a TV company and I am very interested in the story of Led Zeppelin performing his first gig at the University of Surrey.
If you were there or know of anyone who was there, and are willing to share your memories, please get in touch.
My e-mail address is: [email protected] Look forward to hearing from you.
On December 20, 2003 Jimmy attended ABC Trust's Riffathon auction (a fundraising event for the charity sponsored by 'Guitarist' magazine) at the University of Surrey in Guildford.
If most definatly was not in Guildford Surrey, as it is now.Jimmy generously signed a guitar to be given away in a competition at the upcoming Guil Fest festival.I am a little confused as to where they did actually perform their first gig as LZ. I started at the university in 1969 and still travelled to Battersea once a week as the campus in Guildford was still a building site (I have some photos of it). zep never actually played in guilford, they played at the uni but before it moved to guildford.The Great Hall was the large assembly hall with an impressive organ behind the stage.
The whole complex has now been re-developed into a large number of very expensive city flats.jimmy did unveil a plaque in the great hall i was there to witness the event.
