News report: LED ZEPPELIN TEARS UP LOS ANGELES

It didn't get much attention, because the group paid for everything, but Led Zeppelin was in rare destructive form when they were here recently for some concerts.  Things got off to a bad start when lead guitarist Jimmy Page sprained a finger when he lurched against a fence at San Diego Airport. That apparently threw the boys into a grand funk. Not too long after the group got settled in a ninth floor suite at the Continental Hyatt House, a table came sailing out their window. Explanation for the mis-Led table was, the boys were irritated at being told not to toss liquor glasses into an open Lincoln convertible parked on the street below.

Then it was off to a theater to attend a party for Jo Jo Gunne. There members of the group were accused of smashing up the rest rooms and defacing paintings in the lobby. Back to their hotel they went to spread a four-foot cake around the swimming pool. It happened to be Zeppelin drummer John Bonham's 25th birthday. When George Harrison and wife Patti dropped by to help celebrate. Bonham threw both of them, fully clothed, into the swimming pool. (Newswire, June 1973)

Concert description

The last show of the first leg of the 1973 US Tour features the best show from 1973. Robert is in incredible voice, John Paul is amazing as always, Bonham is thunderous and grooves and Jimmy, despite a sprained left finger (?!) is as amazing as ever! "You shouldn't have been here tonight and we should have been in England! As you know, the concert you originally had to come to was cancelled because of Jimmy's finger. Now, this finger is very susceptible to strain and ligament pulling. Jimmy's had his finger in a bucket of cold water offstage, completely, the whole of the time since the concert was cancelled. I think he's doing really well and that's a fact. It's no fun." said Plant before Stairway To Heaven. This entire show is unreal, with the 30 minutes of Dazed And Confused and 20 minutes of Whole Lotta Love standing out among all of the improvisations. Since I've Been Loving You is one of the most emotional and best versions ever played, bested only by the version played here on June 25th, 1972.
