Sex,Drugs&Rock-N-Roll with Led Zeppelin.

Me and three army buddies went to this show and got into frankfurt early that day and went right to the festhall.There were proably 200 people waiting already and hundreds of empty wine bottles.stands were set up selling anything and everything.I see a guy hand over what had to be 200 marks and this guy reaches under his riser on the table and pulls out a huge plate of hash.I go back to my buddies and collect 400 marks and just like that we have the Drugs part taken care of.Then off to the red light district to shop for the perfect rental woman.A small strawberry blonde with tits that seemed to defy gravity.My first rental woman and sadly my last.The Sex part was quickly over but never forgotten.Back to the festhalle and the doors were open.it had to be 3 hours yet until showtime.We grab a spot fairly close sit down on the concrete floor and commence to start smoking and drinking bottle beers from a nearby cart.

We all agreed that with the growing number of empties and the concrete that things may get ugly soon.We were all wrong on that.I never seen nor heard one broken bottle thru the entire concert.It would have been a bloodbath in the states.the show started and i am 6 ft 2 and i had no problem watching Jimmy Paige work his stuff with his perpetual cigarette in his mouth or wedged into his guitar.Seeing the playlist on this site was great but i will never forget Kasmir.We got to talking to some german girls and they hand me a spliff,i take my usual huge hit and practicly cough my lungs out.thats when i was told they mix tobacco with hash.Who knew? my friend Kevin Collins of Miami has a 35 mm camera with a long lens and we are taking rolls of pics.we even had the girls on our shoulders taking shots.Everyone in the place sang along with Stairway.I was soaking wet,hoarse and very high and never felt more alive before or since.

I got my papers to go home ten days later and recieved a few pics from Kevin.only one semi blurry pic of Jimmy and the lower half of John B. (RIP).My black concert teeshirt that i wore proudly to my homecoming keg was dropped on the floor of my old bedroom where sometime the next afternoon i wake up to hear the dryer going.my mother had thoughtfully washed my clothes and did not know to turn it inside out before drying god bless her.The front was gone and i wondered why i hadnt bought two shirts.Its been 30 years and i still have my ticket stubb,concert flyer and some pics in an album that i will be getting out soon to show to my son before he leaves for afganistan.

Been to a lot of shows but nothing will ever compare to that concert.And to think about it we almost went to the Nuremburg show,wasnt that when Bonham fell off the stool second song and the concert was cncelled followed by a near riot.thanks for the memories and the chance to put this down.even if nobody ever reads this.Like mt other hero J Cash says,"I remember everything"
