This classic clip from 1969 shows Led Zeppelin on the brink of international stardom as they perform live for Danish television during their Spring tour of the UK and Scandinavia.
Very soon the band would need no introduction whatsoever as they began to dominate the 70s hard rock scene and Led Zeppelin fans piled into stadiums in their thousands. But check out Robert Plant here as he casually introduces the band to a polite studio audience: “On bass guitar: John Paul Jones… On drums: John Bonham… Lead guitar: Jimmy Page.”
The Telecaster-wielding guitar prodigy responds with a surly, snarling wah wah-drenched “Smokestack Lightnin’” riff before the band crescendos into the four-note foot-stomping riff of “How Many More Times.”
Undoubtedly, one of Led Zeppelin’s finest moments captured on film.
