my ears rang for days afterward

i was 13 at the time...already a seasoned concertgoer. but when the announcement hit that the mighty zeppelin was coming to town, i made plans to get the best tickets i could. when tickets went on sale, i was with my friend steven, whose dad worked for rich's department stores. back then, the SEATS outlets were in rich's stores, so we were able to get in line early. i still have the stub...it was section 120-something...not too far up from the floor.

i'll never forget the feeling i had when zeppelin finally hit the stage. true rock and roll euphoria. i felt as if i was witnessing the second coming (and not being religious then or now, that's saying something).

my memory of this show is that the band was on fire...plant yelled "over the top" before the drum solo, which confounded me greatly, since i thought the only solo was "moby dick." and page's sequence with the bow and lasers blew this young boy's mind.

i have a very large collection of zeppelin boots, but it seems the only recording of this show is a very distant-sounding capture - probably from somewhere in the upper reaches of the omni. still, being able to revisit this show in any way, shape or form is like being able to return to the sermon on the mount.

truly one of the most defining rock and roll moments of my life.
