HANS REMEMBERS- WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 15, 1970- 50 YEARS AGO

Led Zeppelin at 50: all their albums ranked, from worst to best

Hans Remembers- Wednesday September 15, 1970- 50 Years Ago.

  • Led Zeppelin won the category of Best Group in the Melody Maker Readers Poll- it was the first time in eight years that The Beatles didn’t win as best group. Of course The Beatles had officially broken up in the spring.
  • Jimi Hendrix joined Eric Burdon on stage at Ronnie Scott’s in London on this evening- it would be his last public appearance before his death.
  • Investigative journalist Mauro De Mauro was kidnapped as he was returning home from work in Palermo. When preparing the film THe Mattei Affair, producer Francesco Rosi asked De Mauro to investigate the last days of oil executive Enrico Mattei in Sicily. De Mauro had gotten an audiotape of Mattei’s final speech eight days earlier. Maurio De Mauro’s body was never found.

  1. Your mention of Melody Maker and those specific artists is eerily timed. Last night I watched ‘Melody Makers’, a documentary about the magazine, based on recent interviews of the photographers, Burdon, Ian Anderson, and more. It was a good one. There were photos and first-hand stories about Jimi and Led Zeppelin, among many others.
