Fred Zeppelin: 30 Years Rocking the Legacy of Led Zeppelin

In 2023 Fred Zeppelin have reached 30 years together. Well, to be precise, Steve Black (that’s me on drums) formed the band 30 years ago with three mates. Our original singer Rob Bloomer left after 2 years so Steven Gale replaced him, and approx 11 years ago our bassist Kevin Brown, & guitarist Keith Jenkins also left the band.  We really thought that would be the end but we got very lucky and found the dynamic duo of Mark Cresswell on bass and Elliot Gavin on guitar. We’re a bit like Trigger from ‘Only Fools & Horses’ talking about his broom (that’s if you are old enough to remember!). Anyway, we think 30 years is an achievement that we’re all proud of.

30 Years Gone….

During their time together the band are honoured that Led Zeppelin’s front-man, Robert Plant, has attended three of their gigs and John Bonham’s son, Jason, even jammed with them on stage. It must surely also be the best recommendation any band could receive and assure Led Zeppelin fans apprehensive about seeing The Fredz.

It’s worth taking a camera with you, as you don’t know who could be standing next to you. In the audience have been MAGNUM’s front-man Bob Catley, WHITESNAKE’s guitarist Mel Galley. Roy Wood legendary main man of THE MOVE & WIZZARD, and SLADES Jimmy Lea.

The band were also invited by Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to attend a charity event of which Jimmy is a patron. They were thrilled to meet and chat with the legendary guitarist. Also at the party were Roger Daltrey, Julian Lloyd Webber, Leo Sayerand Formula One’s David Coultard. What a night !!

According to one of Kerrangs reader’s polls, FRED ZEPPELIN were among the top ten best live bands to see. Quite an achievement, as at the time they were the only tribute band listed in any category.

Fred Zeppelin are real fans and formed ‘The Fredz’ out of their admiration and love of Led Zeppelin’s music. As their name suggests the band don’t take themselves too seriously, they know the praise belongs to Robert, Jimmy, John Paul Jones, and Bonzo. And, the Fredz will still continue with their tradition of honouring the music of Led Zeppelin and not dressing up to imitate them. Please keep in mind they are not a cabaret style look-a-like act.
