It Was 50 Years Ago Today (1 Viewer)

I was so psyched to be seeing Zeppelin for the first time and taking a trip to Philly from NY to do so too. My friend was getting the tickets that day and I was talking about it on the subway ride home from High School. A friend overheard the conversation and thought I was joking. I asked her what she meant and she said "you didn't hear? John Bonham died" I was floored and thought she was the one joking. Didn't believe it. Raced home, turned on the radio and the first thing I heard was Moby **** and I knew... :(

Never saw them live, but my brother probably took me 3-4 times when I was around 9-10 years old to see The Song Remains the Same at the midnight movies. Loved Jimmy Page...

1. paraphrasing The Beatles in a Zep thread title = bad form.

2. the actual release date was not on 1/12. First off, 1/12 was a Sunday (albums were never released on Sundays back then). Second, Atlantic Records had already issued a press release stating that the album would be released on 1/20, so there's almost zero chance that they would have jumped the gun. Also, the major music publications (Billboard, Cashbox, etc.) didn't start mentioning the album until 2/1, and it did not hit the Billboard chart until 2/15. Therefore, the album was most likely issued between 1/20 and 2/10 at the latest.

It was fifty years ago today we saw my Jets win the SB. 

Let's all say it together. 

J-E-T-S. Jets Jets Jets!

Fireman Ed would be proud.

I saw Page/Plant at The Omni in Atlanta in ‘95.  Best concert I was ever at...was quite stoned but one thing I clearly remember thinking while watching Jimmy Page just jam out was - here was this 50 year old guy just rocking out on stage like age didn’t matter.  That was half my life ago and I identified with him more then than I do now...wow.

Thanks, Ahmet Ertegun.
