    Zep live at Chicago Stadium '73

    Hi Everyone.. trying a new font here!! First of all, condolences to you The Only Way to Fly on the passing away of your uncle George Wadley... God bless. To Porgie66, yes, please do please send me your email!! And, oddly enough, Yes, I do remember Bonzo wearing a turban plus it's in my diaries!!! Thanks for asking, and glad to be able to help nail down some more Led Zeppelin history!! I also remember quite well the sequin spider web t-shirt. Here is a photo of the front door of the Court of the Golden Hand, where I first saw Led Zeppelin and met Robert Plant.

    Yes, I first laid eyes on Jimmy Page in the early hours of July 7th... with the white satin outfit on. He had just finished his Friday, July 6th, 1973 concert at the Chicago Stadium. Have not yet seen your photos!! Looking forward to them!! I was invited to the concert the following night, July 7th, 1973, a Saturday. I don't remember what Jimmy wore!!

    Chicago 1973 - by Camille Davis Russo

    Hi, everyone again... Thanks so much for all the comments.. I'm more used to facebook, I want to respond to each of you, but haven't figured this out yet!! I will try to get it together to write a proper response to the many great comments and the question about cameras, etc... Quick answer, it was a very private party even though there were tons of people coming and going, it was such a huge mansion... but this was 42 years ago... and no one had cell phones, obviously... all we had were Nikons if we had money, or instamatics if not!!! And no one was brazen enough to bring a camera in there!!! Uncool!!!

    Thank you all so much for reading my story!! I'm so busy right now with our Willie Dixon celebration that I haven't had a moment to write to thank Sam and all of you!! Just so you will know, there are something like forty plus pages of diaries from that particular week Led Zeppelin was in town, and the article for Rolling Stone barely scratched the surface!! I'll post some other things later, and again, thank you so much. I've very honoured. Oh, by the way, the heart-shaped locket I am wearing in the black and white photo contains a bit of Robert Plant's hair. (Stolen from his Mason-Pearson hairbrush when I was cleaning his room... forgive me Robert!!!) (https://www.facebook.com/williedixon100yrs?ref=hl)
