VANILLA FUDGE keyboardist Bill Pascali gave a first-hand account of the mind-blowing moment when LED ZEPPELIN frontman Robert Plant showed up at the FUDGE's last show in the U.K. "Tim Bogert (bassist) fell ill from some dinner earlier and almost miraculously Robert showed up onstage and offered to jam with us," Bill said. "He later told us he showed up unannounced to the club and tears came to his eyes as he watched Tim and Carmine perform." Plant and VANILLA FUDGE did an extended version of 'Parchman Farm' from the CACTUS album and was "amazing," said Pascali. "He hugged both Carmine and Tim and came backstage where they talked about old times and made plans to get together in the future." [For FUDGE enthusiasts, LED ZEPPELIN opened for VANILLA FUDGE in what was their first Stateside appearance] Pascali, who has just released his first-ever solo album, "Where Broken Hearts Go", called the evening "bone-chilling" and "amazing." "It was a night for the record books," he said.
