Apparently metal overlords and hobgoblin botherers Led Zeppelin played the mighty Whitwick Working Men's Club in 1969.
Anyone know anything about it - it must have been an amazing experience!
I'm going to put a thing in the Echo asking for anyone who knows about it to call in.
Also, anyone else know of any unlikely acts coming to the Loughborough area?
PS This video isn't in Whitwick.

Someone rang the Echo about this!
Here's the story -

AN ECHO reader has contacted Looking Back to say he was at Led Zeppelin’s rumoured appearance at a Whitwick Working Men’s Club - and he didn’t think they were very rock and roll.

Rumour has it the rock legends played a low key gig in the village before they hit the big time, and Steve Clark from Markfield says he was there.

He said: “They were hopeless, I don’t know how they made it.

“I thought they were bland and boring. They didn’t really win the crowd over, just a few claps, but it was definitely them.

“That said, I’ve always thought they were one of the most overrated bands of all time - they bore me to tears.”

• If you saw the show, or remember any other well-known acts coming to the area before they became superstars, contact Looking Back on 01509 635820.
