Cat Posted April 30, 2008 Share Posted April 30, 2008 Chronical Telegram Elyria, Ohio Tues., Oct. 28, 1969 Led Zeppelin comes and . . . goes By MIKE CLARY Cleveland. 8:32 p m.: Grand Funk Railroad comes in late. But they come on strong, sounding very heavy under the big pink WIXY 1260 sign and Public Auditorium fills with red and purple music And things are good for 2,000 kids, freaks, and music. FEELERS For 58 very hard minutes. Cleveland. 9:50 p.m.: Led Zeppelin just appears. The look is that particular brand of London freak — short on leather — and the colors in the hall change from deep solid to pink and white, like the white satin trousers of JIMMY PAGE the musician, the magician, who plucks effects, acidity- blue atmosphere from his guitar, and MUSIC. The light is not red but white, and hundreds of music technicians, and, yes, two screaming girls, crowd up front — really out front — to see close up, and where one ear anyway is next to an eight-foot amplifier speaker. and everyone looks at Jimmy Page's very fast fingers except in the black where a heady haze wraps around the music, and in the back people move, or stand alone or not. and things are good in the back. While up front Jimmy Page uses a bow, and does many things, as a hassle starts with fire aisles between the seats, which have been a hassle (no blankets), and a man calls for the Angels to make a fire lane through the Page watchers, and they do. AND NOBODY HASSLES A HELL'S ANGEL. In the back, in the front, in the balcony, on stage, in the seats in the middle, the music goes on for a while, and then Led Zeppelin disappears.
