    Atlantic Records Hosts NY Led Zeppelin Party

    The Atlantic Weekly - Feb. 10, 1975
    Atlantic / ATCO Bulletin

    Two hundred of New York's finest attended a midnite bash following Led Zeppelin's triumphant return to Madison Square Garden the night of February 3, at the Penn Plaza Club. Besides the healthy contingent of Atlantic Records at the party, led by Ahmet Ertegun and Jerry Wexler who presented each of the four Zeps with gold medallions showing their birth signs (with inscriptions too intimate to reveal here).

    A host of other luminaries were also very much in sight: Swan Song execs Peter Grant and Danny Goldberg; WCl's David Horowitz and Manny Gerard; Andy Warhol, Diane Keaton, Keith Moon, Rick Derringer and Steve Paul. Also among the celebrants were the stars of New York's elite press corps, led by the doyenne herself Lisa Robinson, Jon Landau, John Rockwell, Henry Edwards, Robert Christgau, Ian Dove, Vernon Gibbs, Jon Tiven, Danny Fields, Dave Marsh, Maureen Orth, and Steve Demorest; and from the west coast, in a class by himself, l'enfant terrible of rock journalism Cameron Crowe, who's completing a feature on Led Zeppelin for an upcoming Rolling Stone. A sprinkling of spies from other record companies were spotted, green with envy in the swank and sporty Club surroundings.

    In all, the party must've been a smash: Zep road manager Richard Cole phoned us up the morning after, asking "Tell me, did I have a good time last night?"
