I didn’t have tickets for the reunion concert at the O2 arena last night but would have loved to have gone.   Having seen some of the video footage and the reporting it seems they were as good as they ever were.  They were one of the best bands I ever saw live and I saw them twice in one week along with Wishbone Ash .  I don’t think my ears stopped ringing for a week.  At the end of one of the concerts, I ran onto the stage and the late John Bonham handed me his drumsticks – and I still have them.  As they so succinctly put it – been a long time.  Nostalgia’s great isn’t it?
