I was at this show with a few high school buddies-near the end of 11th grade. We knew Zep was special. Can you imagine how silly 16 year old boys and girls sitting in a garage singing Stairway along to a stereo must have looked? But that was us. Then at the show we were all so stoned that there is little to remember. My aunt and uncle gave me my first Zep album (II) in 1969. I will be forever grateful to them for turning me away from the Monkees to the Zep, not that they were all bad! But we were in the presence of greatness that night, and like many I wish for one more time. Come back guys, we are still here, and we miss you. And whether or not you do, as the song goes: THANK YOU
RIP John Bonham.

This was the second time I had seen Led Zeppelin. They put on a great show as usual even though Robert Plant seemed under the weather. He was having trouble hitting the higher notes that night but he still sounded great. My favorite Rock & Roll band by far.

One word describes this show...violent! The band's playing and attack is relentlessly aggressive ... listen to No Quarter, Dazed And Confused, Heartbreaker ... they are pushing everything to the limit. The vibrant, overloading recording only helps to emphasize this quality ... this is a great show; Robert really pushes himself to the max with the rest of the band. Misty Mountain Hop was tonight introduced as a song "about what happens when you take a stroll on a Sunday afternnon with a packet of cigarette papers and some good grass and ... I'm not advocating it ... just telling the story!"

General admission show, camped out all night, crush at door before show, sprayed with pepper spray by Houston police. Pulled into Coliseum and had front row standing only, greatest concert ever seen. Would not have changed a thing.
