I Was Also There

I was stationed in Bamberg, and we had an Army bus that would take us to concerts in Nueremberg. Like a previous commenter, I wish I had kept my stub as well. As was the case with many concerts in Germany, the Messehalle floor was packed and if memory serves a bit sweltering. I had my wine skin, which I took with me to concerts. I recall Peter Grant coming out to the stage, threatening not to allow the band to come on until the crowd backed off the "f@@@ing bloody stage." Many began hissing, and it created a bit of an intense atmosphere. After what would happen, I had to wonder if what was really bugging Grant was perhaps Bonham not being fit to come on.

But the band did come on. I recall a powerful "Train Kept A Rollin," followed by "Black Dog." I don't recall the song listed between the two. Then the band began with the Intro to "In the Evening" when Bonham collapsed. Concert over. Official word is he was ill, but I think in hindsight it was obvious he was tanked. What a tragedy. From all accounts, on a personal level he was a decent guy.

From a selfish point, I had waited many years to see Zeppelin. Several years before that, while in HS, I had tickets to see them in Kansas City. The show and tour were cancelled after the tragic death of Robert Plant's son. The Nuremberg show was really a big disappointment. Oh well, "The Song Remains the Same" is always there.
