I was there! About 30 feet from the stage. Waited hours for Zep to take the stage after sets by Judas Priest & Rick Derrringer.

Since then I have met Robert & Jimmy and spoken to them about this infamous gig. Jimmy vividly recalls the 'security thugs' at the front of the stage, manhandling the patrons in the very front of the crowd, much more aggressive than any Zep entourage antics....according to Jimmy. When I told Robert I was at this gig, he asked me if I was backstage..... I knew exactly why he was asking.....
