“On this day in 1967, ‘Little Games’ by the Yardbirds was released.
“Also on this day in 2005, the second Riffathon was to take place at Hammersmith Palais. It was a charity event for the ABC Trust. Brian May of Queen, the guitarist of The Darkness, Dan Hawkins and I had been asked to judge a number of guitarists as they played their riffs.
“I thought they might play original material, but the contestants performed versions of songs by Led Zeppelin and Queen. Martin Tomkins was the eventual winner that night.”
