  1. I received this book yesterday. It's a great read. Has many different reactions, stories, etc. about the band and the O2 show. I had the pleasure of meeting Jerry Ritz (Zep's original Scandinavian tour manager) at the hotel we were staying at. We talked for a long time about his time driving the boys around from gig to gig.

  7. As if this trip could not get any better, we were staying at the Britannia International hotel until Wednesday. On Tuesday evening, a couple of guys from Calgary and I were having some pints in the bar. We ran into a married couple from Denmark and two guys from Philladelphia. The guy from Denmark is named JERRY RITZ. We start talking about music and during our conversation, he informs me that he was Zep's tour manager in 1968 & 69 on the Scandinavian tour. He tells us stories about driving the band around from gig to gig in a van. Holy shit, you have got to be kidding me! I believed every
  8. Oh BTW, Canuck22 and loopstart are the same person ... me ... again, just needed to be very careful not to do anything that would jeapordize this trip.
  9. Hi Eternal Light, AlltheKings and Aqua, Thanks very much. I had to be careful about saying too much before the show. HG's office stepped up and transferred both tickets into my name. I ended up taking a frind from Calgary. Man was he surprised to get that phone call. We had a blast. Here is a link about the whole trip if anyone is interested: http://www.canada.com/langleyadvance/news/...82-03e9271e9e14 Cheers All!
  10. Rob, what concert did you actually go to last night? I went to the one at the O2 where at the end of the show, everyone was walking out saying wholly f*cking sh*t, that was a religious experience! Absolutely amazing! ... you sir are a moron.
