Paul Kennedy Ulster Hall 71 Review

Woah!.

What a brilliant passage. I don't know how this "reply" thing works, but if it plays out that I am writing directly to you, Paul, then I'm writing to tell you that you DID manage to do the experience of seeing Zeppelin vitually near their apex, justice. You MUST HAVE done it justice because through your words, I got a real, tangible, awe inspiring impression of what it must have been like to witness the force of nature Led Zeppelin's four combined elements were.

I was only 11 months old for this gig, and too far away in Canada to have attended notwithstanding (haha)...however, if ANYONE of the multitude, and legions of Led Zeppelin fans who were not old enough (or even born into the world yet) to be around to see this juggernaut perform live, but they crave and desire to know what it must have been like, and how it would have affected one's senses, to experience seeing a young Led Zeppelin....I strongly recommend that all they need do is READ this (YOUR) review!

"I simply don't have words to adequately describe the impact that first fifteen minutes had on me and on those that were there. It changed things for me. I, as did everybody, stood in disbelief in the face of the pure wall of energy"

"As I left the Ulster Hall around midnight I remember clearly looking up fully expecting to see cracks in the ceiling"

Apologies in advance, but I have to swear to accurately emphasize my perspective on those two excerpts....fucking AWWE-SSOOMME !!

There is no doubt in my mind that even to this very day, as well as any time in the past, that James Patrick Page, Robert Anthony Plant, John Henry Bonham, and John Baldwin (J Paul Jones) themselves..would be honoured and MOVED by this (your) personal commentary.

Slainte' !
