Carmine Appice: "John and I were testing out some new Ludwig stands while playing the Kinetic Playground in Chicago. By the end of the night, we had both broken the stands so we gave them back and said: "They're gonna need  to be a lot stronger, we broke them." You should have seen the look of shock on the faces of the people from Ludwig!"

Aaron Russo's Kinetic Playground Feb.8,1969

I was at this show. I had never heard of either Led Zeppelin or Jethro Tull. Tull opened up the night with "My Sunday Feeling" and continued with selections from their "This Was" album. Led Zeppelin came on next-this was a life-altering experience for me. I was just 15 years old and this was the first concert I have ever been to! I sat on the floor, the place had a circular light show hanging from the ceiling. I was about 10 feet from the stage. Vanilla Fudge came on last, then there was a break and all three bands did a second show after midnight.I will never forget it.
