During this time they have had the honour of Led Zeppelinís front-man Robert Plant attending three of their gigs and John Bonhamís son Jason even jammed with them on stage. These things the band are very proud of. It must surely also be the best recommendation any band could receive, and also assure any Led Zeppelin fans apprehensive about seeing The Fredz.
According to one of Kerrangs readersí polls. FRED ZEPPELIN are among the top ten best live bands to see. Quite an achievement as they were the only tribute band listed in any category.
Its worth taking a camera with you, as you donít know who could be standing next to you. In the audience have been MAGNUMís front-man Bob Catley, Roy Wood legendary main man of THE MOVE & WIZZARD, and SLADES Jimmy Lea was the latest rock celebrity to experience a two-hour Fred Zeppelin gig.
Fred Zeppelin were invited by Led Zeppelinís Jimmy Page to attend a charity event of which Jimmy is a patron. Kev (bass) and Blackie (drums) attended and were thrilled to meet and chat with the legendary guitarist. Also at the party were Roger Daltrey, Julian Lloyd Webber, Leo Sayer and Formula Oneís David Coultard. What a night!!
The four members of Fred Zeppelin are real fans, and formed ĎThe Fredsí out of their admiration and love of Led Zeppelinís music. As their name suggests the band do not take themselves too seriously, they know the praise belongs to Robert, Jimmy, John Paul Jones, and Bonzo

Expect a journey through some of your musical guilty pleasures - slammed hard down onto a slab of granite and covered in heavy armour plating. Wildfire are currently rocking crowds and venues all across the Midlands so expect an entertaining, energetic performance from five guys who LOVE to perform to a crowd!
"Well what can I say. Saw these guys for the first time last night and impressed is an understatement. They have a truly unique sound, the covers were exceptional and totally unexpected. The whole set was a brilliant mix and performed by a group of very talented musicians. Really looking forward to seeing them all again." - The Burton Gig review
