Communication Breakdown It was the first day of High School in Norton, Mass. and my Mom wrote me a note to the principle to let me out early to attend a Led Zeppelin Concert. The principle, Mr Yelle, was spitting mad. Well needless to say he had to let me go and by myself I caught the train from Mansfield to Boston to catch the early show. Unfortunatly the first show was cancelled I believe and heard due to lack of ticket sales!! Hard to imagine!! So I bought a single 8th row seat for the second show. After a long anticipated wait the Garden went dark and shadows of men walked on the stage. Then suddenly out of the darkness the bellowing voice of Robert Plant, AH AH AHHHHHH AH, AH AH AHHHHHH AH, Then Pages guitar DON DONA DON DA, DON DONA DON DA, the lights came on and it was the first time I had heard the Immigrant Song. Unbelieveable!!! From that point on it was magical. Hard to believe that such a Great Rock Band at their Greatest time with Zeppelin III just being released that tickets were so readily available. From that point on it was history. To end the story by the time I got out of the concert there were no more trains out of Boston at Midnight so I had to call me Dad to come and pick me up at South Station. It was a night I will never forget and Thank You Mom and Dad, where ever you are for giving me the freedom and opportunity to experience life and history. Gary Foss. An amazing show in front of another out of control crowd! DJ J. J. Jackson again introduced the band: "They haven't been here since last November, so can we have a big hand for Led Zeppelin." Robert's voice is simply amazing, hitting some of the highest screams and wails ever to really pack an emotional wallop to Since I've Been Loving You. He sings higher and stronger than on some of the album versions! Jimmy plays some great guitar and Jones and Bonham are unstoppable! A great medley and a totally fast, thrashing Communication Breakdown close the show. As always in Boston, the audience was rowdy and Plant tried to stopped them: "Can you move back and clear the aisles for a while, so we can get a good thing going."
