 Press excerpt: For $3 a head, the massive turnout had jammed Winterland to see Roland Kirk, Wolfgang, Isaac Hayes and Led Zeppelin. England’s sensational Bonzo Dog Band was scheduled, but a sign said they were cancelled because of “immigration” problems.

Finally, after midnight, Led Zeppelin came to the stage. Everybody stood up - tired of sitting on the floor for so long, not just to see better. Singer Robert Plant strutted around the stage in a series of Jim Morrison type postures, while Jimmy Page demonstrated his virtuosity on guitar. During one song he did some weird stunts with a violin bow.

Their style seemed to be a bunch of effects, superimposed on a loud pulsing beat, and little else. The Fillmore scene has degenerated to a point where it is scarcely tolerable for performer and audience alike.

The cult around it is made up of the masses of militant mediocrity. The freaky clothes have been worn thin and grown ragged at the edges. The group narcissism has gone stale. Rock music has become the prey of corporate leeches.  [Berkeley Barb / Nov. 1969]
