I was a steward at this 1988 Wembley Arena gig - I was in the RAF at the time and the Wembley organisers would pick a busload of us up from nearby RAF Northolt since we were good for security. The deal was: you'd put your name on a list and would have to do some 'crap' gigs in order to get pole position on the 'good' ones (supposedly U2, Prince etc.). Anyway, few of us 20-somethings had heard of Zappa so this counted as a 'crap' one. Well I thought it might be interesting so my hand went up. So, when we got there I was detailed to mind the sound desk; a pretty cushtie spot. Zappa himself seemed on good form; indeed, he was a revelation to me. I'd never heard 'rock' anything like it but I totally dug his style, his Stravinsky references and crazy mixed up time signatures; my steward buddy wasn't so keen. Then about half way through, this tall blond fella comes striding down the centre aisle and breezes right up towards the desk. "Heh-hey there, you..." I start but the sound guy gave me the nod and they start chatting away. Meanwhile my mate's tugging on my sleeve and practically wetting himself... "It's ROBERT PLANT Dude!" - Me: "Who?" Yeah, well that's how green I was back then - but that concert, even though at the time I hadn't really wanted to do it, I came away afterwards knowing I'd witnessed something special.
