First concert I ever went to was The Who at MSG on the Quadrophenia tour in 1974. However, the greatest night of my life was seeing Zep in June of 1977 at the Garden.
Every single time I hear Zep to this day it takes me back to that night.
Mighty mighty Zeppelin for me.
I never got to see Zeppelin live, but I do have a story relating to a live experience with sort of them. I took my cousin who I consider my little brother to the Plant/Page show back when he graduated high school back in the late 90's I guess..it was the tour they did for Walking into Clarksdale. I got him into rock and roll thank god, his parents listen to country but I got him into rock starting with Kiss when he was like 10 years old, then I got him into the other stuff like the Stones, Zeppelin, etc. So we go to that show, we're about 20 rows back center stage, we're watching Plant and Page just tear it up that night, and then they did "Ramble On" and Plant at one point just stood there and stopped singing and listened as the crowd all sang the chorus for him, he didn't ask them to, we were just all singing along. He just stood there with his mic to his side with a big grin on his face, sort of like "how cool is this.." and he looked over at Page and they both smiled, and I looked over at Wes and he grinned. To this day all these years later he still says that was the greatest concert moment he's ever had, and I tend to agree with him. It wasn't Zeppelin, but that night it was damned close.
Now, a few years later we go to Raleigh to see Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes, and THAT show, now, it wasn't Zeppelin either, but damned if it wasn't REALLY close...that was just an awesome show..
Well, Im of the opinion that one wouldnt actually have to eat the corn out of Chynas shit to know that nothing good could come of it. - Portalesman
