Great Memories!

I was 17 years old when I went to this concert, it stands out as the greatest of many that I've seen over the years since then.
Atlanta traffic is never good, but it was especially bad that evening. The short drive from Marietta to the old Atlanta stadium seemed to take forever. Not only was there about 40,000 people in town to see Led Zeppelin, but about the same amount was in Atlanta for the Billy Graham crusade that night. The most memorable part of the concert to me was during "Stairway to Heaven" , hundreds of white doves were released to fly up through a "stairway" of light. Someone tell me I wasn't hallucinating! Ha!
