This was the third time I saw Zeppelin and man what a doozy it was. Something tiny and purple made it a heck of a show! :)

This was my very first Led Zeppelin concert I went to. It was probably the one that really hooked me. It was absolutely great and I will remember it the rest of my life. I am old now and a lot of my old rock'n roll friends have traversed that stairway to heaven. I still crank up Led Zeppelin every day and one day my spirit will leave me too as I look to the west.

Yep...it was good...especially after we made a "stop" by Trinity Park for a little "motivation".
I wish now that I had seen this show "straight" because a lot of it is now gone from memory...with the exception of Page trying to do the splits or something and almost falling on his butt...never missed a note though.
A lot of my friends are also gone...damn drugs...now I am a drug counselor, but I still love have to get the led out. Take care and Peace :o)

Also my first Led Zeppelin concert, I was 13 years old and hooked. I still have one of the handbills.

3rd concert overall I had the opportunity to see Grand Funk in June '70 and Hendrix May '70.  

Awesome times.
