Knebworth 4/8/79

My first ever gig also turned out to be the best.

Travelled down on the Friday with my girlfriend (soon to be wife and mother of my son , then ex-wife) and a couple of friends arriving as it got dark.I was at the gate that collapsed under the pressure at about 2 in the morning and remeber running across fields to the turnstiles where we scarily crushed until they let us in at first light.

Following a couple of hours sleeping on the grass I awoke to the biggest crowd I had ever seen. We had a spot about 50 yards from the stage (about parallel with the tree for those who were there) and sat all day until the big moment that Zep took the stage.

Looking at the set list now it is not exactly as I remember it - I could have sworn Over the Hills and Far Away came first and don't remeber 10 years gone at all - but most of it is still fresh in my mind. Highpoints were Achilles Last Stand and the explosion of Kashmir following White Mountain.

Nothing has come close to equalling the feeling of event that this concert had. I'm still held in awe by some of my younger friends and colleagues because I was actually there and saw Led Zep at their prime.
