I first heard of Zacron when I was about 8 years old. My favourite album, Led Zeppelin III, had his name and image on it. Later, I found out that Zacron was a friend of Jimmy’s, and I thought, ‘Wow, Jimmy Page is so awesome he has a friend called ‘Zacron!’ Jimmy, [...]

The Cost of Giving it All

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

I really love to create opportunities for music fans to reach out and help others. Memories in Music has raised thousands of pounds since its first charity event at Knebworth House (visit our past events section to view photos from the events). Together with music fans, we’ve put smiles on the faces of [...]

Pennies from Heaven

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

For the next five months, can you save just .20 cents a month, roughly one penny per day? If you can, and you are a fan of Led Zeppelin, we are asking you to do just that because five months from July 10th, Memories in Music will be making a donation from Led Zeppelin [...]

December 10th Fund – In the Light

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

‘ve always loved the song ‘In the Light’ from Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti album. It’s so true that everyone does need light, be it spiritual or emotional, but it occurred to me as I was listening to it that a lot of people will never see any actual light due to blindness. That [...]

Super Fans

Monday, June 6th, 2011

I’ve heard this term being used by music fans to describe certain among their number. I’m not entirely sure what criterion are used to gain this status; some labelled “super fans” run websites, write books/articles, go to a lot of concerts, have met musicians, know people who know musicians, own various memorabilia or [...]

Step up on The Edge

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

On the evening of the 16th of March I had the privilege of witnessing a very special performance. It was just three people in the middle of a small room in London. No special effects, no music, no props, but these three people created an experience that transcended the need for those things. [...]

Life Lessons of Music: Alcoholic Depression to Joy

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

The ‘Music Taught Me to Love’ post has made me think of the many people I’ve known that have learned important life lessons by listening to music. Music can reach people where other influences cannot, and this seems to be a commonly shared experience. The lessons can be really big ones, or just [...]

Music Taught Me to Love

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

A musician friend of mine rang me this morning very excited about a programme he was watching about music. He thought I might find it interesting. Tuning in, I found some music professors having a chat. One of them held the illustrious title, “Professor of Cultural Musicology.” Geeze, fancy stuff! [...]

December 10th Fund – Week one!

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Well, with all the excitement this week of receiving the gorgeous, magical Jimmy Page book, how fortunate that it’s time to make my first contribution to the December 10th Fund! With all this happiness in my life, adding to it by giving feels great!
I said that even emptying your wallet of spare [...]

December 10th fund?

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

I received such a nice response to my blog reminiscing about being at the O2 to see Zep play on December 10th 2007. It was great to open emails and even get a few phone calls saying how much people were touched by my joy. It reminded a lot of them of their [...]
