Led Zeppelin live, 5/30/77 Capital Centre..Landover, MD. (RIP)

35 years later and I find myself thinking back to this time and place, of being there and how much it meant. Such a huge event, seeing a Led Zeppelin concert. All these years later it hasn't diminished...a look through Youtube is a shot of melancholy but actually BEING there.... It's very hard to explain it to those who weren't lucky enough to witness it, for I have tried. This particular moment in time impacted my life...yes I know to some that might sound odd or corny but to us it's real; by God it's downright magical! Different time, different place, vibe, happening....the communal feeling we experienced can never be forgotten. Led Zeppelin were the pied piper, they were our muse in many ways. Their music was the foundation for our very souls....it was real, damnit! I don't remember every aspect of the concert itself; the set list, the technique of Jimmy Page's playing that night or exactly how long John Bonham's drum solo was, (it was LONG), but I can tell you how at-home it felt...how together everything was, and how intensely meaningful it still remains. Personal highlights were Page's White Summer/Black Mountain Side Danelectro solo then kicking hard into Kashmir; just epic...also, the bluesy jam between Page, Jones & Bonham; 3 quality musicians playing otherworldly during No Quarter. As I look back some of it could be misconstrued as being a bit silly; the violin bow, theremin, crazy guitar effects with Page's poses and flair for the dramatic, but to me it completes the portrait and still...the mystique is intact.

......you had to be there
