30 Years On...

The memory isn't as clear as it was then, but that night was a watershed event for a 16-year old boy. My first (and, sadly, only) Led Zeppelin show. In a miracle of miracles, my best friend's cousin had a friend who dropped out of going to the show and I was asked to attend only hours before (sitting Orchestra, no less!).

Lots happened that night. I learned how to use a bong (grin); hanging out before the show, I heard the debut album by Crack the Sky (wow!), and then we were pushing through the tunnel on our way to the Garden.

The band gave an incredible performance, but what was most striking was the deafening roar of the crowd. I'd already been to plenty of shows, but I'd never heard anything like it. Even sitting less than 200 feet from the stage, the crowd was so loud that it was impossible to tell they were playing "The Song Remains the Same" until more than half-way through the song.

Got to hear my personal favorite, "Since I Been Loving You", the stunning acoustic set, and - for a band with such a great catalog - an excellent cross-section of all the albums that satisfied even while it left you aching for another dozen songs.

Now that I have 33 years of shows under my belt, I can still count on one hand the shows that actually came away feeling proud - and almost arrogant - that I attended. Kind of like, "I was there. You weren't and you missed out!"

This show is among that handful.
