At this fantastic event 7/12/69

I had been on a double date for some R&R, since I received orders for Vietnam Nam, and I  was on a 30 day leave. Not knowing what the future had in store for me, in the military, this show was a means of taking my mind off of my impending military responsibility. I believe the event started off with B.S.&T. followed by Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter(and I believe brother Edgar was with the band), Jethro Tull, and to complete the experience Led Zeppelin. This was unlike any event that exists in todays venues. Considering Woodstock was a month away and was about to change the face of live music, I considered skipping my military report date with Southeast Asia, and going on to Woodstock.

No, I did not dodge my responsibility, and so I reported for duty. My fortunes were soon to change when I arrived several days late for my report date to Ft. Lewis, Washington. I was not punished for my tardiness (nor consideration for being AWOL) and in 2 days I was given NEW orders. Off to Germany instead, for a 2 year tour.

Being at this event left me with an indelible memory of the beginning of a series of events that were to change my life. Led Zeppelin was to be the most prominent, positive musical influence effecting my life from that day forward!
