I was just talking about this with my wife yesterday.

If I recall correctly they showed this clip on the John Davidson Show (afternoon talk show in the early 80s). My friend down the street who was a huge Zeppelin fan invited me over to watch it with him. This was about a year before anybody ever heard of anything like MTV. It didn't even exist then. So for me, who at the time had never seen The Song Remains the Same, or any footage of Zeppelin at all, this was thee first time I'd seen Plant in action. The first time I literally ever saw him move. Before that it was still images only. Great clip and great version of the song.

I've said it here many times before: I think it's F'ing awesome that Plant was a big Elvis fan!!

I love Plant and Rockpile. The album "Seconds of pleasure" by Rockpile is superb and WELL worth looking into, despite it's high asking prices on Amazon and Ebay. I've got the LP with the bonus EP. Brilliant.
