Seeing Led Zep was certainly the best experience of my life. I saw Pink Floyd, Yes and Jethro Tull. But Led Zep was raw, ground breaking and absolutely totally a full mind and body experience. The sound system was unbelievable, and their music was better than on the records once the mixing was sorted out. Am I the only one? or is my memory correct tat they arrived on the Randwick Racecourse in a coach drawn by four white horses? Anyway I have no doubt that great handfulls of joints were thrown into the crowd, because I was there in the front. The cops tried to pounce couldn't even get into the crowd, and so soon there was that sweet smell.

The highlight for me was not the opening, but Whole Lotta Love. I thought the bass was going to thump my body apart. It was felt; the whole concert was felt. None of us had hi fis that could feel bass (and drums) like that. Zep were bettyer than Floyd, but Floyd was the only similar body concert.

the sound is perfect on this, the green sparkle drum kit [speaking as a drummer] is great, put Bonham behind it and we get perfection. bring back the old stlye rock, pure energy from Zep.

Thankyou: so good to revisit that day. The Immigrant song was first. We waited an extra hour to get into the showground. For the first tme since the war years we gained an extra hour of sunlight that Sunday back in '72. Unlike Led Zep, daylight saving has returned to Sydney each year. I was 15. My girlfriend and I would have been ring-side without the extra hour. We'd left home at dawn.
When the band started up and the audience cascaded over the boundary I was awestruck at the visible vibration of coke cans on the asphalt. Why would I want to move any closer to those thumpin great decibels... I could see a lot better in those days and I can still hear. In truth I carried regret for resisting the urge to join in the cascade: that passed. The pleasure of seeing and joy of soaring with Led Zeppelin remains. The best live act I've been to was also the first.

I grow up with Led Zepplins music and i have never been sorry. on my sons grave stone this words are written " if the sun refused to shine,and the mountains crumble to the sea , there will still be you and me.
thank you for the theme of my sons life. He was 19 when he died in San jacinto Ca
rebel mom
Ilove you led zepplin
but not as much as I loved my son Artie
he loved led zepplin too
