Today in 1968 Jimmy Page and the Yardbirds played their last gig ever, at Luton Technical College in Bedfordshire, England. The band dissolved after this, and Page would go on to form Led Zeppelin later in the year.
Also today, in 1980, Led Zeppelin performed their last gig ever, at the Eissporthalle in Berlin. John Bonham would die two months later, effectively ending the band’s career. They finished the show with a 17-minute version of Whole Lotta Love.
