My First Concert

I was 16 and only came because the guitar player who was in my garage band wanted to see Jimmy Page. I didn't know much about Led Zeppelin, but thought it would be a fun trip. Four of us drove down from upstate NY. I remember that we were in awe of the warm up band and didn't want them to stop playing. Then they announced Led Zep and introduced Page, Plant, Bonham, and Jones. We were sitting at a table, in a pretty small venue - very close to the stage. I was absolutely amazed. Never heard anything like the sound they produced. It was the most incredible concert I've ever witnessed - and I've seen countless shows over the years.

Needless to say - a diehard fan was born that night. It's has always been one of my most cherished music memories.
