YARDBIRDS REFORM FOR MARQUEE XL 1543/5

yardbirds-reform-for-marquee-3

I tried hard to find the date of this German Yellow Press article but it’s just not possible. We do know that Jimmy Page had  legal issues due to drugs in 1981 (December “apprehended near the Swan Song Offices in Fulham and found to be in the possession of 198 milligrams of cocaine in his coat pocket”) and 1984 (“September 6, 1984 Jimmy was cited again for cocaine possession, this time by a suspicious bobby at a London train station”). However, the article above talks about Led Zeppelin disbanding in “summer of last year” (a date disputed by other sources but then again this is the yellow press, so don’t expect accuracy) and this lead me to the conclusion that this is an article from 1981 or ’82.

I looked all over but apart from the set list and this bootleg, this gig has left few traces on the internet.
