The 26th of January, 1969 is also a notable day for Led Zeppelin, as they played a hugely successful show at the Boston Tea Party that would give the band a glimpse of their potential success. John Paul Jones was quoted as saying in NME magazine “the key Zeppelin gig, the one that put everything into focus was the one we played on our first American tour at the Boston Tea Party,” and went on to say “I suppose it was then that we realised just what Led Zeppelin was going to become”
