Zep at The Olympia

Although I was only 14 at the time, the memories of that night, some 41 years later, remain with me today.The MC5 played a spirited set with Sonic Smith leading the charge.The little band from Flint also kicked it out.Lee Michaels and his fabulous drummer Frosty tore it up, with Frosty playing a solo similar to Bonzo on Moby Dick,using just his hands and feet,no sticks.There were so many great shows at that time with multiple acts that it was just what you did every weekend.As it turned out,it was the only time I ever saw Zep,but it was simply amazing seeing a band who would play each night as if it were their last.Jimmy played the Les Paul for the majority of the set, and the Danelectro for White Summer/Black Mountain Side.That night Zep set the bar for the next 10 years.
