New Yardbirds

The Led Zepplin concert actually occurred while they were still performing as the New Yardbirds though even then Led Zep was being bandied about. Even though I didn't formally transfer to UCI until Sept '71 I ended up being a door usher as several of my friends were involved. We had managed to get a peyote cactus and knowing we might get nauseated ate it with canned beef stew. LZ was really good though nothing compared to later on. Lee Michaels was on his downward swing with Frosty playing drums. His entourage included guys who were old style gangsters, the rumor was they were Mafia and they acted like creeps threatening people and breaking beer bottles. The place was jammed and as we got more loaded and people were pushing and upset it was hard to manage the doors. I remember abandoning the doors and throwing up down into the pool yard next to Crawford Hall, not one of my finer moments. Still it was a good show
