Led Zeppelin LA forum september 4, 1970 Blue Berry Hill

This was my second Led Zeppelin Concert and I was 14 years old. I saw them six months before at the forum for the first time on March 27 for my friend's birthday. I was thirteen and my friend's mom dropped us off on a school night. She bought him two tickets for his birthday at the little ticketmaster located in the back of the Broadway department store at Stonewood in Downey, I think for about four dollars. I think we were the youngest kids in there back in March. My brothers were in good bands and I had a little garage band, but I never experienced anything like what we saw and heard at those two concerts. I snuck a tape recorder into the blueberry hill concert on September 04, and had the tapes up until a few years back, and the recordings were terrible of course. I remember someone throwing two M-80's up into the air and exploded during the whole lotta love medley, I believe. Plant yelled out " Who threw the firecracker, you ought to be locked up, You ought to be locked up". I remember Plant was wearing a blue short sleeved T shirt and blue jeans and it seems that they all had beards. I remember that later on, I found the bootleg of live on Blueberry Hill at Middle earth records in Downey. I was able to discover that we had missed the opening Immigrant song, Heartbreaker and walked in as Dazed and Confused was just starting. We were late because the gal that was driving, had to finish making her 'Maxi Skirt' which was a big deal back then. Smoking marijuana and drinking Colt 45 malt liquor on the way also didn't help. I didn't do any of that, and neither did her little brother (my friend) who was only 11 years old! Unbelievable what our parents didn't know about. We were pretty good kids. After seeing them seven times at the LA forum, I called it a day after seeing them in June of 1977. I started listening to Christian music exclusively for a long time, got married. I still enjoy looking back to being able to see some pretty incredible concerts as a pretty young kid. Never could ever quite get the smell of burned marijuana out of my hair and clothes after those concerts and it is really a bummer when one is a cop for the past 28 years. Between the gunfire and amplifiers over the years, I am suprised I hear anything. By the way, I know "who threw the firecracker.....
