Tribute to the Mighty LED ZEPPELIN
The story so far:
During their time together they have had the honour
of Led Zeppelin’s front-man Robert Plant attending
three of their gigs and John Bonham’s son Jason
even jammed with them on stage. These things the
band are very proud of. It must surely also be the best
recommendation any band could receive, and also
assure any Led Zeppelin fans apprehensive about
seeing The Fredz.
According to one of Kerrangs readers polls. FRED ZEPPELIN
are among the top ten best live bands to see. Quite an achievement,
as they were the only tribute band listed in any category.
Its worth taking a camera with you, as you don’t know who could be
standing next to you. In the audience have been MAGNUM’s
front-man Bob Catley, WHITESNAKE’s guitarist Mel Galley.
Roy Wood legendary main man of THE MOVE & WIZZARD,
and SLADES Jimmy Lea was the latest rock celebrity to
experience a two-hour Fred Zeppelin gig.
Fred Zeppelin were invited by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page
to attend a charity event of which Jimmy is a patron.
They were thrilled to meet and chat with the legendary guitarist.
Also at the party were Roger Daltrey, Julian Lloyd Webber, Leo Sayer
and Formula One’s David Coultard. What a night !!
Fred Zeppelin are real fans and formed ‘The Freds’ out
of their admiration ]and love of Led Zeppelin’s music.
As their name the band do not take themselves too
seriously, they know the praise belongs to Robert,
Jimmy, John Paul Jones, and Bonzo.
The Fredz will still continue with their tradition of honouring
the music of Led Zeppelin and not dressing up.
Please keep in mind they are not a
cabaret style look-a-like act.
Do you remember petuli oil, cheesecloth, tie-dye T-shirts, desert boots, loons and tank tops. Do you still wear them?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, the chances are you must be the proud owner of at least one Led Zeppelin album.
Let ‘THE FREDS’ take you back in time to those heady days of flower power, Kevin Keegan perms, flared jeans so wide it took two paces before they moved, and shirt collars long enough to tuck into your under-pants.
Dust down the afghan, light up the joss sticks and let ‘FRED ZEPPELIN’ re-create the atmosphere of that great era by playing all the classic tunes of the greatest rock band ever ‘LED ZEPPELIN’.
Wrinkle Rock Lives!
