The Uk's No1 Tribute to Led Zeppelin

It was 1993 when three friends, Steve Black (drummer), Keith Jenkins (Guitarist) and Kevin Brown (bassist) with a mutual respect and passion for Led Zeppelin decided to form a tribute band called 'Fred Zeppelin' that would create note for note performances of the legendary's rock bands music. As they hit the local circuit in the midlands with Vocalist Rob Bloomer, they performed some of Led zeppelins greatest tracks and gained a following. Vocalist, Steve Gale was hired after Bloomers departure and the line up spend many years playing individual performances, up and down the country. It was 2010 when Brown decided to retire from the band and hand over his position as bassist to Elliot Gavin.
2013 marks us being together 20 years…
During this time they have had the honour of Led Zeppelin’s front-man Robert Plant attending three of their gigs and John Bonham’s son Jason even jamming with them on stage. These are 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 readers 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 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, who attended on recommendation — “Thought I would come and see you, as Robert (Plant) said you were brilliant”. 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 Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to attend a charity event of which Jimmy is a patron. Kev (former bassist) 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 One’s David Coultard. What a night!
The four members of Fred Zeppelin are real fans, and formed ‘The Freds’ out of their admiration and love of Led Zeppelin’s 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.
