Press Review: Led Zeppelin a Hit With Arena Crowd

England's Led Zeppelin and a crowd of 6,000 became good friends in two hours Monday night. The audience loved the acid rock group for its musical content. There were none of the old promotional tricks, no local DJs, no local bands, just the crowd and Led Zeppelin.

There was Robert Plant who looks like an Appalachian Jug Band reject, but who has more musical talent than the Tennessee Valley has water. And John Bonham who proved again that beat is only music without melody. John Paul Jones, still a little down over his father's death last week, but sending out vibrations in his organ solo.

Led Zeppelin is so much a part of today that it can easily transform into tomorrow. Its music cannot get much louder or its talent much better." (Milwaukee Journal, 9.1.70)

The Milwaukee Led Zeppelin concert you saw.

Katrina -

I read your comment about the Zeppelin concert you went to with your dad in 1970. I grew up in Milwaukee County and always liked Zeppelin a lot, though I never got to see them live. You were 12 years old, you say. I would have been 6 years old in 1970. When I was around eleven I discovered them. I'm just curious as to what songs you remember them playing, and what they were like on stage. If you wouldn't mind, could you describe a little about this concert you saw? I'd like to read your reply.Thanks!
