News report: Zeppelin fans cause 2nd Cincy riot
For the second time in three days police had to battle fans of the British rock group "Led Zeppelin," but police doubled their manpower and kept trouble at a minimum here yesterday.

An 18-year-old Dayton fan plunged 20 feet to a concrete ramp while trying to scale a wall, police said. Stanley Blair was reported in fair condition at Cincinnati hospital. Asst City Manager Henry Sandman told the Cincinnati City Council that 80 police officers, paid for by the Cincinnati Coliseum, will be used hereafter to prevent outbreaks of trouble.

"The Last Hurrah"

420, this concert was "AWESOME"... I just turned 18, just got married, and worked by day at Don Kremer Lincoln/Mercury in Dayton and a student at night and lived in nearby Kettering at 820 Big Hill Road. My wife and her family were wealthy and I had to BEG her for us to attend this concert!!! Since her family owned the local ROCK & ROLL radio station, we were able to attend the front row posing as "MEDIA" for the station, which was all arranged in advance. At 5:00pm we were off to the concert in the family limosine with 2 "BODYGUARDS" in tow, as we knew it would be PANDEMONIUM at the colliseum with a small RIOT there the previous night, as well as a Reds/Dodger game at the stadium next-door. After dinner across the Ohio River in Covington Ky, we arrived at the concert at 7:20 and was able to get special access to the colliseum before the general public. We could see local Cincy cops dressed in full "RIOT GEAR", with helmets, shields, and batons READY for ANYTHING to happen. After getting some refreshments before heading to our seats, we saw them open the doors for the general public, after doing so, we could see people CRAWLING on top of people standing in line to get in!!! We, with bodybodyguards in tow, quickly headed to our seats just off to the right-side of center-stage. As soon as the concert started off with "The Song Remains The Same" and the lights went out, the colliseum reaked of Marijuana, Hashish, and Thai-Stick... Luckily, we did smoke at a young age, or we would have had NO other choice but to INHALE the SMOKE and get HIGH anyway. Plant's vocals were INCREDABLE, Bonzo played the drums soo fast with his "BARE HANDS" that it was all a BLUR, Jone's on the keyboards was "FANTASTIC", Page playing the double-neck was simply "AMAZING", but his playing was NOT flawless, as we ALL know he was experimenting with "HEROIN" at the time and it showed!!! Little did we know that this would be the LAST ZEP tour in the U.S.A. and fortunately for us we were part of it. It was on this night, that we realized Led Zeppelin was and will ALWAYS be NUMERO UNO (#1) in the world of Rock & Roll!!! They were just given Kennedy Center HONOR AWARDS the other night in Washington D.C., along with Buddy Guy, Dustin Hoffman, and David Letterman, which was long overdue!!! HAIL to the KINGS of Rock & Roll 4-EVER!!! This evening was 1 of the BEST-TIMES of my LIFE and I will CHERISH that 3-hours 4-ever!!! I suffered a HEARING LOSS that NIGHT and am still partially DEAF in 1 ear, but I don't REGRET it 1 bit and would do it again at 55-yrs old!!! I am NO longer married, but I will NEVER forget this CONCERT and have told THOUSANDS of PEOPLE about this concert my WHOLE-LIFE!!!
