Inside a Bong with 30,000 Friends!

Here a a Few Memories from this Show.
Me and a friend were on the Subway going to see Zep when an old lady we were sitting next to noticed there were a lot of "Long Haired Rock n' Rollers" on the train, she realized there must be a concert and she asked us, "who's playing tonight" we said Led Zeppelin and she replied, "yeah I hear "He's" really good". To this day it makes me laugh.
This Show was the Greatest Concert I have ever seen, and is the one I judge al other concerts against. I'm in the music business and have seen many concerts and none even come close to the energy and magical euphoria that Led Zeppelin could produce.
A few Highlights were:
John Paul Jones "No Quarter" Solo, the stage was filled with "dry ice smoke" and "blue lights", and if you were seated above it, it gave you the impression floating above the clouds while JPJ played some ominous "Dark Night of the Soul" Music. Incredible.
Next was John Bonham's Drum Solo on "Moby Dick". Phased and Flanged Drums Sounds in sync with Laser lights on the ceiling of the Madison Square Garden. When he played Loud the lights completely covered MSG Ceiling and when he played soft... with his hands, just a small wavey light could be seen. It was great to see him come to the front of the stage and play percussion in the acoustic part of the set, but lets not forget his right foot on that massive 26" non-muffled Bass Drum, it was like a Machine Gun.. Drummers know what I'm saying. We miss you John... R.I.P.
Next up... Jimmy Page and his solo in "Dazed and Confused". With his violin bow in hand, inside a Pyramid of Translucent Green Laser Light that rotated on the "Bomp Bomp" part, playing eerie music that would send Aleister Crowley running for cover. As Page played faster the "Pyramid" spun faster and faster and it looked like Jimmy was standing inside a Spiraling Green Laser Cyclone, commanding the winds to do his bidding... Awesome!
Next Robert Plant singing "Kashmir"... the lights in Madison Square were turned off, and Giant 70's style Disco Balls were hit with spotlights that made it appear as if the Garden was filled with thousands of moving Stars... the kind you would see on a clear night... while moving through Kashmir.
Finally lets not forget the Zep Fans themselves. I remember toward the end of the show sitting in Madison Square Garden looking around, and saying to myself... "So this is what it's like to be Inside a Bong with 30,000 thousand of the Coolest Friends on Earth!".
Ah... Sweet Memories.
