The Concert Of My Life

I had seen Zeppelin in 1975 in San Diego at the age of 15 and was in heaven. I had been a fan since I was 12--my father bought the first album in 1969 and he continued buying them until I starting working and could buy albums myself (I had a cool Dad--he was an eye surgeon but had been a jazz drummer and thought Bonham and the whole band were awesome).

Anyway, 1977 - age 17 - My friend and I had camped out for the tickets. The concert date changed and it conflicted with a planned family vacation. But my parents let my sister and I stay home while they and the younger kids left for vacation in Arizona. They knew that seeing Zeppelin was like the most important thing in my life so it was actually my Dad who proposed that my sister and I drive to Arizona and join the rest of the family the day after the concert.

The concert was incredible; I managed to not get too stoned because I wanted to remember the show! I was singing and yelling and rocking and rolling through the whole show--as were my friends and everyone around us.

Three days after the show I was in Arizona, having joined the family on vacation. We went to what the locals called "sliding creek" because you could slide down on moss-covered rocks. It was fun and felt great in the Arizona heat ... until I slipped and hit my head. When I started getting dizzy and mumbling stuff that made no sense my parents called 911. In the ambulance driving from Flagstaff to Phoenix (Flagstaff didn't have a sophisticated enough neurology department apparently), I kept going in and out of consciousness.

My father, who was in the ambulance with me, told me later that I kept asking him, "I went to a Led Zeppelin concert didn't I? Oh I don't want to forget that ... I did go didn't I? ... I remember I was going to go but I can't remember going."

My Dad told me that here he was worrying I might have permanent brain damage or could die and I was totally worried about not being able to remember the Zeppelin show!

As it turned out the doctors gave me some drug that stopped my brain from swelling and I was alright. And best of all, I could remember the show! Well, I was glad to be alive too after I learned how dangerous it was but I remember being the happiest because I hadn't lost the memory of the best concert I ever attended.

Led Zeppelin is still my favorite band and I'm happy to see that younger generations continue to appreciate one of the best rock 'n roll bands of all time.
