  1. Thankies for the great responses to my Zeplife stories. Oh I am a Zep Head through and through, as we all are here. Shadecatcher, I feel like I could have known you back then. Sure enough we sewed our clothes cos we couldn't find any to please the boys in case we got to meet them. Peasant blouses, mini dresses with matching panties, miniskirts, maxi dresses. Oh those were the glorious days. Yup my BFF and I sewed up black velvet hot pants with red satin inserts, and matching halter tops worn with the ever favorite Twiggy thigh high black vinyl boots. Yes we looked 22 at 16 years old, LOL ! Our dream was to sew clothing for the Zep members but someone beat us to it ! Potted Plant, yep prolly was Cobo as we had a good friend who was a ticket agent and always got us great seats there.That was a lot of brain cells ago, tho. Dear BlueEyed Merle I so wish we could have met sometime in our lives ! You are the epitome of Led Zeppelin Lovers and thanx for liking my story ! It was a fantastic time to grow up and I am forever greatfu;l to have be blessed enough to see all the bands that I did especially my Zep.
  2. That hug would have been awesome to see ! Big hugs to you too Kelly Girl for such good commentary, much appreciated. Peace and Love ya'll...
  3. Queenies been around a long, long, time. I was " Bobtised: by Roberts own sweat as I stood at his feet on a small stage at the Grande Ballroom January 1969, in Detroit. We 3 friends drove there in a little MG convertiblie, top down, me in the rumble seat my long black hair and long black cape flowing in the wind, just stoned to the bone ! The venue was barely half filed and they played for hours and were very friendly. I was immediately posessed.Saw then again in Oct 1969 I believe at Olympia stadium, then April 1970 at Cobo hall where we two besties made our own foxy clothes and attempted a side stage approach only to have to take "care" of an enourmously large hairy roadie first, but I did get a side glance from my man and a grin as he was about 20 feet away.WE were too chicken for the fat roadie shit first so backed outta that scenario.The cape was worn however.Then saw them in June of 1972, by then there were thousands that wanted to see them so it was packed, but I always got good tix from a friend agent.Which show I went to in 1973 is iffy , those were the 'scleener" days and a bit foggy.Then back to the Olympia in a cold part of 1975Then the biggest show of all The pontiac Silverdome in April 1977. Waited 18 hours for those tix, outside in the freezin blowin cold.Saw a hell of a slice of life out there in the trenches.Great experience though.Then came 1980, sent my moneyorder in, even having Dad drive us to the main post office to drop off our moneyorders,A few days later I was in mourning, I missed work for a couple days.The heartbeat of my band was dead. There would be no band. I suffered for weeks.I may still be suffering after 33 years. I have been blessed to have the internet and some good friends from the internet to keep me connected to that band that I so love and I have atteneded many of Roberts Shows. I prolly have most boots and vids and all but its not like you can go see them every once in awhile. The anticipation alone, before a show was pure euphoria ! I was blessed to have as much of them as I did and I think Robert knows who I am by the same group of us "Bobettes" who follow him from town to town and that is all I can ask for ,to still enrich my life.I will die listening to Zeppelin with a smile on my face...I just know it. ** The cape has been to all 7 or so Zep concerts as well as nearly 10 Robert plant concerts so the cape is my trademark and many in those days knew me as the Cape lady IT is a floor length , velvet coller woolen cape from London England. I have been offered hundreds of dollors for it. I think i should embroider all the dates it attended and then maybe be buried or cremated in it when the time comes. Thats true love, eh?
  4. There is a series of a few more of these pics and he definately had his eyes on her that night. Lucky little biotch...
  5. Could I please become a member of your "Spit Club" ?
  6. Pretty sure that is from a series of pix of Robert at Pappy and Harriets Bar in Pioneertown, California Just outside of Joshua Tree.2005-06?
  7. We were inside by noon that day as well. It was utter pandemonium. Pontiac, Oakland Cty police and security guards had no control over anything, seems to me they just went with the flow and only manhandled the really flipped out folks.It was just party city.We left and re-entered off and on throughout the day.There were well over 150,000 people there just to be there tix or not.Our seats were up in the nosebleed section and that was after waiting 18 1/2 hours in line in windy 20 degree weather on the tix selling date. After 30 + years the memories are foggy at best( as my head was) but it was like a mini Woodstock.I was 23 yrs old in '77 and the younger generation hippies were a rowdy bunch, responsible for the firecracker bit. The firecrackers started up and I remember Robert coming out and saying to "stop it !" They would not go on if firecrackers persisted. The fireworks stopped, maybe just a couple went off after, and those folks got their azz beat by the folks nearest them.IIRC Jimmy was pretty buzzed that night, we could tell the rest of the band was getting a bit miffed at him. We were trying to record the concert so we had to be careful, but the concert was so loud that our mics were overwhelmed.All we got were wooshing sounds and alot of Bonzos heavy hitting drums.We had binocs and am pretty sure that Bonzos hands were bleeding after his solo drumming without sticks ! The Silverdome acoustics were terrible anyhow.Being there and seeing all the love for Zeppelin was amazing. If my scanner wasn't dead I could post what pics and newsprint I have here.I didn't think that they stayed in DetRiot that night as we ladies went looking for them and couldn't find them in any of the old haunts. It was truly a night that will be inprinted in my mind forever ! Thanks Steve, for the memories, buddy...
