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.

Dayton man down

I remember that day like it was yesterday-and woe because the last chance I would have to see them like that, with John. It was the last night of only two nights. My mother still advised against my going with my friend Kim to see our favorite band. 15. Didn't even have tickets but yes, she got in-blond with big blue eyes. Drugs. yes. music, yes. Page and Plant-YES. We were grown up little girls. I was not encouraged to go. I am sure it was a night Kim never forgot. It was like a ticking time bomb watching the clock strike each hour I knew they were playing. that music was my heart beat. But the Who had played Riverfront recently and there was a tragedy. Everyone believed it was The Colliseum's fault that the emergency exits were chained or something. With Zeppelin more crowd trouble was expected, but with the exception of the climber it turned out okay. After this concerts changed. No other generation could expect crowds and freedom for intimacy again. Real partying. Everafter it was reserved seats and metal detectors. The Dayton man who fell I didn't know but we heard about it and Kim saw it happen. At first everyone thought he was dead. Zeppelin was King. I always get wry faces when I tell people that its funny but in England, Erik Clapton is God but in The States, Jimmy Page is God. Dayton, Ohio, mostly factory kids and freaks, but Zeppelin was our music the way the Beatles were for the previous generation and Chubby Checker, etc, my mom's generation before that. With two arenas, Dayton and Hara, Dayton was made to rock! A way out without having to leave home. Every dime saved or stolen was used for a concert tickets or merchandise. But Zeppelin was too big for Dayton. One of the first records my mother gave me was Stairway to Heaven. Kim didn't have to give me a blow by blow I knew the music by heart and I counted the concert hour to hour. I really only regretted not being able to see John. I have seen the others since. Still the best but not the same. I would have gone anyway if I had known that Led Zeppelin was going to be the last great rock band. The greatest and last.
