Zep concert 05/06/77

I was stationed up that way with the Air Force in 1977. The way the Capital Centre's round roof was (intentionally) warped made it look very much like a squashed frisbee as you approached it. I have ticket stub section 3, row M, seat 8, $9.50, dated Thursday, May 26, 1977.

As I recall, Zep had no warm-up band, came out late, played 1 hour & 45 minutes, & walked off with no encore (the only band I EVER saw that didn't do an encore.)

On the other hand, it WAS a helluva show, with the green lasers kicking, & a memorably superb rendition of Whole Lotta Love (especially when Jimmy reached over his shoulder, fished a fiddle-bow out of his back pocket, & started sawing on that 3-necked guitar. The Battle Of Evermore was pretty sweet too, the 3rd neck on that guitar being the mandolin for that tune. Bonham beat the hell out of all his drums like he was on heavy drugs, as usual. Plant's voice seemed a bit past its prime, but in all fairness he HAD just screamed his guts out almost every night for the past week on that tour. JPJ played adequately enough, but he was seriously overshadowed by the other three. All-in-all, one HELLUVA show.

I've seen most of the Golden-Age Gods of R&R, and I can honestly say the only better show I ever saw was ELP.
