Wow, a website for one night

Wow, a website for one night that will live in my memory forever. All I can say is thanks and I am glad to see that others also remember that night so fondly. I was lucky enough to score 4 - $7.50 seats from a guy at school who charged me $15.00 a piece for the first show on the 25th. I was 15 and had a job so I could afford the double face value price. My seats were 6 rows on the right side of the stage. It was the third concert I had ever seen and it ruined me for life as every show I have attended before and since, pale in comparison to what I witnessed that spring night.

The beloved venue formally known as the Capital Centre no longer exists as that sacred piece of land should be a shrine to all of us baby boomers who came from Maryland, Virginia, DC, and other points to join in celebrations of life, culture, style, and rebellion.

As time goes on, I recall the 3 friends I attended the show with as two of them passed on, nearly eight years from the day of this event. I have not seen the other since the mid eighties. I remember playing the LZ classic "In My Time Of Dying" when I heard the news of my two friends and the words of the song really took substance. Most of us who listened to and loved the music from 60's and 70's are fortunate to be able to relate to a song or a band in order to open up a memory bank that can take you back to a certain place in time like it just happened. That era of golden sound is one unlike no other as the greatest music ever recorded is just one of the terms that could be used to define the times.

I do recall after LZ finished their final encore number "Rock and Roll", someone from the floor threw a whiskey bottle and Robert Plant had to duck his head to avoid this idiot's displeasure to the show finally ending after over 3 hours of greatness never to be experienced again in this lifetime. 'And I see them in the streets And I see them in the field And I hear them shouting under my feet And I know it's got to be real Oh Lord, deliver me All the wrong I've done You can deliver me Lord I only wanted to have some fun'
