Boston Tea Party - (press release)
January 1969

(flipbook - 6 pages)

John Paul Jones:  “As far as I’m concerned, the key Zeppelin gig, the one that put everything into focus, was one that we played on our first American tour at the Boston Tea Party. We’d played our usual one hour set, using all the material for the first album and Page’s White Summer guitar piece and by the end, the audience just wouldn’t let us offstage. It was in such a state that we had to start throwing ideas around, just thinking of songs that we might all know or that some of us knew a part of and work it out from there.

So we’d go back on and play things like “I Saw Her Standing There” and “Please Please Me”, old Beatles favorites. I mean, just anything that would come into our head and the response was quite amazing. There were kids actually bashing their heads against the stage – I’ve never seen that a gig before or since, and when we finally left the stage, we’d played for four plus hours.

Peter (Grant) was absolutely ecstatic. He was crying, if you can imagine that, and hugging us all. You know with this grizzly bear hug. I suppose it was then that we realized just what Led Zeppelin was going to become.” – (NME, Feb. 1973)

For Gods Sake!!!

All i can say is WOW!!!... it's just like Jack White said: "feel like i got the right age in the wrong time!!!". How i wish could be right there and feel the hammer of the gods in his golden dawn in those magickal times!!!

Just four guys with four instruments and such power: vitality, creativity, musicianship, chemistry, wide influences (both musical and lyrical), strong presence, great shows (HOURS of rock!!!), great records, interesting lyrics, great album covers, a great manager, vibrant lifestyle, fame, fortune and glory ... Zeppelin is so BIG and those times so good for rock music that today 'rock' (in the scene) looks like shit in comparison... rock is a fuckin' dead today... where are those wild times of rebelion?

i'm right fellows?
