Led Zep Final Show

I was 13 and living in Berlin when a friend at school offered me one of the 3 tickets he had for this show. I was still into the Bee Gees at the time, but he convinced me to go, and we went down to the ice rink in the morning and waited all day to get a good spot in line.
When they opened the doors there was a mad crush and we exploded into the hall and ran as fast as we could to the barriers at the front, 6 feet from the stage! After a long wait the lights went off and there was a huge push which crushed us into the barrier. The security guy pulled us under the gates and let us sit with him, leaning against the stage! We were right next to Jimmy Page's left foot.
I was not that familiar with their music at the time, but I vividly remember Black Dog and feeling like my head was going to explode. I also remember Page drinking what looked like a bottle of OJ, but I assumed it was mixed with Vodka, he seemed pretty drunk. This was probably the 3rd concert I had ever seen, so I thought it was fantastic at the time, but to hear it now you realize that the performance was pretty bad.
After the show I spent all of my allowance on 3 posters and a t shirt. The posters all gradually were destroyed over the years, but I still have the very faded, tiny, black shirt which I wore to death.
I became a big fan after the show and bought all of their albums (LPs, of course), and then 2 months later Bonzo died and I was crushed.
Great memory, though.
