Zep were on the programme last night. David Cheal of the Daily Telegraph joined us in anticipation of the big show. Here is how he's written about it today.

    Reported concert statistics from the US are:

    - 20 million people applied for 18,000 tickets

    - one person paid US$168,000 for a ticket

    David Cheal of the Telegraph says: "It was a joy and a privilege to be there"

    I bet it was. Just wish I'd been there...

    Sorry if this appears twice...

    So this "Led Zeppelin"... is it some kind of modern beat combo then? Are they in the hit parade at all? Have they covered any Tony Bennett songs?

    My other half (who is an even bigger fan) and who isn't very well at the moment went to bed listening to them with his ipod on its little speaker stand thingy. I flipped the lights on and off quickly and, shouted and made lots of "woo hoo" noises to try and recreate that concert atmosphere at home..........it wasn't quite the same!

    "......it wasn't quite the same!"

    Perhaps not. But you tried and that's doubtless what makes you special.

    "Have they covered any Tony Bennett songs?"

    Not so far as I know. However, an "artist" by the name of Rolf Harris did record a version of one of Led's. Fame indeed...

    Possibly not. But you tried. Which makes you special

    Incidentally, the Epileptic episode that may have been induced in your "poorly" significant other, by flipping the lights on-and-off quickly - imitating a strobe-effect - is, I'm sure, likely to be a purely transient event

    Not so far as I'm aware

    However, an "artist" called Rolf Harris has recorded one of Led's. Fame indeed
