I was there too 7-24-77

I don't remember Judas Priest even playing on Sunday - guess we got there after they finished. I do remember Derringer and the long wait for Zeppelin. The vibe in the air was not good. Bill Graham came out on stage at one point holding up one of Page's guitars and said there's a problem with the guitar - obviously buying time. I had just seen Zeppelin in L.A. on 6/23 and they were really hot. This show was rushed and a bit 'phoned in", which makes sense considering what happened. I could tell something was wrong. Page was so stoned he sat on a stool for more than 1/2 the show. Sad that it ended up being their last U.S. show when Plant's son died a few days later. This was my 7th Zeppelin show.

For the record - especially for those who feel Bill Graham was to blame for what went down: Peter Grant, Bohnam, Richard Cole and others beat the hell out of one of Bill Graham's staff.

After the Saturday show the staff member caught Grant's kid trying to steal the name plates off the backstage band trailers and reprimanded him. When Grant heard about it they almost had the guy killed. Zeppelin's crew and Grant had a long history of this type of ugly over the top violence and Bonham at this point was a severe alcoholic that people couldn't even make eye contact with him without a violent outburst. The delay was due to their lawyers getting Bill Graham to sign documents that would make them legally immune - which he did knowing it held no water in the U.S. to avoid a riot by 60,000 waiting fans if LZ split for the airport.

Sad end all around for my all time favorite band - such talent. They were truly rock Gods!!!
