WHAT WAS THE CRAZIEST THING THAT YOU EVER DID AT A LED ZEPPELIN CONCERT?

Missed it. <_<

My 11 year old buddy went with his older brother in LA 1977. I was invited, but my parents said no. :(

Oh, but dropping their 12 year old son off for Van Halen in 1978 was fine. :angry:

What a difference a year makes! :D

Obviously you matured rapidly from a little boy to a little man in twelve months. :o

It could have been worse, two years! :rolleyes:

How's it going again "Dzldoc?" That is no lie, I'm actually lucky to be alive. I have hundreds of Rock n' Roll stories to tell. Its not just ZEPPELIN stories, but many other concerts such as THE ROLLING STONES, PAGE & PLANT, THE WHO, BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, FLEETWOOD MAC, PINK FLOYD, PETER FRAMPTON, ROBIN TROWER, AC/DC, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, BOSTON, KANSAS, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, THE EAGLES, VAN HALEN, EDDIE MONEY, PAT TRAVERS, REO SPEEDWAGON and THE BEACH BOYS to name a few. They were crazy times in deed. ROCK ON!

Yeah almost a lifetime! <_<

Is that Vienna, Austria?

Haven't heard that one.

Been watching the DVD of Seattle 1977 on high rotation, so with that, TSRTS and O2 I'm getting by.

Sigh......

With a bit of luck we just may get to see them again soon, in some form or another.

My biggest regret was never experiencing The Rain Song live.

Page and Plant did it brilliantly, but Jonesy makes the tune, if you know what I mean.

Keep on chooglin'.

This isn't crazy by any stretch,but on May 18,1977,in Birmingham,Led Zeppelin performed a general admission show.I sat in the upper level of the coliseum until Achilles when I told my buddy I was heading toward the stage.It was a breeze.Most standing on the floor were worn out by this time.I snaked my way within 10-12 feet of the stage,left of center.Extreme electricity.

Honestly,before witnessing their concert,Iwould have clumped them with other bands of the day.Post concert,just about all I'd listen to,and listen to...And still experiencing.

And to think today,I was within 10-30 feet of the four icons of Led Zeppelin.

No need to pinch me,I'm handling it well.

How's it going fellow die hard hard core ZEPPELIN fanatics? I always figured that many of you had some crazy stories to tell. I still sense that there are many more crazy stories just waiting to be told. I still have one crazy ZEPPELIN story to tell about the hooker that I met in Oakland on 23 July 1977. I promise to tell all of you soon. ROCK ON!

The craziest thing happened after the 02 concert

(hope that counts too)

After having a lot of fun, even more alcohol and a free absinth (on the house due to the barkeeper who liked my good taste in drinks) I returned to my hotel room and redecorated it in the spirit of Rock and Roll.

Which meant making a giant spider web like decoration though the entire room with all the toilet paper I could lay my hands on. Of couse it needed Zeppelins as well which were easily made out of inflated condoms.

God have mercy on the poor souls who had to clean up all this stuff

How's it going fellow die hard hard core ZEPPELIN fanatics? I'm still wondering if I should tell my TRUE life experiences which led up to and resulted in the Friday, 22 July 1977 story along with the Saturday, 23 July 1977 Oakland show since they are both connected. You wouldn't believe me if I told you. Those two days ALONE should also rank as two of the craziest days that I have ever experienced in my life. This story would be the sequel (Part 2) to the Forum show from 23 June 1977 which I also attended. What do all of you think? Should I tell it? ROCK ON!

Well it was a great night as I was seeing one of my idols in person, I went with my mom and (we had an extra ticket because when my dad found out it wasn't just Robert he said "That'll suck") and my grandmother. I was surprised no one caught Black Dog until after the vocals started and when finished it was followed by chants of "Where's Jimmy, and Play more Zeppelin!". But for the crazy part the banjo player was doing his solo and everything was rather quiet (it is country after all) when suddenly Robert sang "Hey hey mamma (Black Country Woman)" it was like a feeling I've never felt before just such a sudden rush. I couldn't control it at all I screamed louder than I have in my entire life, but the funny part is (keep in mind it was really quiet even when Robert began singing) I scared the old man sitting next to me so badly he fell out of his seat. I was really dissapointed that Hey, Hey What Can I Do was not played.

I guess it is now time to tell another one of my adventures at a ZEPPELIN concert. The date: 23 June 1977, The place: The Forum in Los Angeles, California. When I think of The Forum show on 23 June 1977, not only will I remember some of ZEPPELIN'S blistering performance, I will also remember all of the D-R-A-M-A that was going on with me at The Forum.

I was fighting with my then girlfriend Donna and we decided that we were not going to The Forum show together. Our best friends, Tod and Stacy were fighting also and decided that they were not going to The Forum together either. Stupid me, I came up with a stupid idea and asked Donna's best friend Stacy to go with me and she accepted. Donna, on the other hand, decided to ask my best friend Tod to go with her to the Concert and he accepted. I can see that this outing was doomed from the start. Just imagine all of us driving from Sacramento, California to Los Angeles, it was like letting kids loose in a candy store. Stacy and I were driving in my 1971 Chevelle Malibu Chevrolet with four of my other friends which turned out to be pretty packed. Donna and Tod went in a separate car which is Donna's mom's brand new Lincoln Continental. One of my other best friends in my car, was carrying a pound of KGB skunk weed and wanted to sell a lot of it at The Forum. I swear, I was getting high breathing the fumes of the weed from the bong loads and it smoked up the whole car. Enough of that for now.

We made it to L.A. and arrived at the Forum in record time. My best friend who was playing drug dealer was selling weed left and right till he made a sale to an undercover cop. That son of bitch would chase all six of us the whole f*c*ing night. I was always wondering why that bastard was chasing us with no backup but I'll tell you at the end of the story. My drug dealer friend did not want to leave the bong in the car since he was worried that it might get stolen so we were going to try to sneak it in. Four of the guys said that they would go in first and to meet at a particular exit door. So here Stacy and I were, waiting at this exit door for the guys to open it and get the bong. But before that happened, the undercover prick caught Stacy and I outside the exit door and started running towards us. Stacy and I started running for our lives around The Forum and when we came around to the exit door, one of my friends was waiting at the door so I tossed the bong to him and Stacy and I kept running. Blame it on the weed, but Stacy and I had to stop running. When we did, we realized that the undercover cop was gone. After being in line for a while, Stacy and I got in and walked around the Forum for our seats. When Stacy and I came up to one particular mens bathroom, I knew that it was one of my best friends because smoke was coming out of the bathroom as the door opened like there was a fire. Stacy and I were the only ones out of the six of us, to find our seats and sit down with our beers. WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, my girlfriend Donna showed up with Stacy's boyfriend and my best friend Tod and sat down eleven rows from us. ITS A SMALL WORLD! It was a very awkward evening. The concert started and I was enjoying The Song Remains The Same, Sick Again and Nobody's Fault But Mine. It was around this time that Stacy mentioned to me that she had to pee. I told her to go ahead and be careful. After Stacy left, about one minute later, Donna would soon be following Stacy to the ladies room. I was enjoying the rest of the concert without realizing that Stacy had been gone for almost a half hour. Just as I got out of my seat and began to go out and look for her, Stacy approaches me crying with a bloody nose and a black eye. Then Donna walks past the both of us with a grin on her face. Stacy then told me that Donna opened the stall and hit her while she was hugging the porcelain. I was so mad that I wanted to choke Donna for what she did. I told Stacy to wait here because I was going to talk with Tod about this shit. I walked to Tod's and Donna's row and called Tod to tell him that I needed to speak with him. Tod and I started walking towards Stacy and Tod looked at Stacy and asked how she got that way. Tod then asked me if I hit her, I told him no. I told him that Donna did it. Tod then got pissed off at me and took it out on me by hitting me on the side of my head. I followed Tod to the mens room and he went into a stall to do something if you can imagine what it is. Rather than open his stall and hit Tod, I had five M-80's and I figured that the bang would scare the living shit out of him. So I did it, I wrapped three instead of five M-80's together and lit all three at the same time and threw them over the stall where Tod was at. You're probably asking yourself, how did I know which stall that Tod was in? Easy, Tod was the only one wearing shoes that said LED ZEPP on it. Anyway. after I lit the M-80's and threw them over the stall, I starting jetting out the bathroom door along with everyone else that was in the mens room and you would then hear this loud bang that sounded like gun shots. As I starting running the other way away from the mens bathroom, wouldn't you know it, that son of a bitch undercover cop was coming the opposite direction and starting running after me again. It took me about 15 minutes to get rid of that bastard. I know for fact that Tod got the shit scared out of him because he told me years later. Its a wonder that Tod survived that incident. Tod was making his way down the stairway aisle, messy and all, and when he got to where Donna was and told her what happened, she turned to me and pointed her finger at me in front of everyone and said: "YOU MOTHER F*C*ER!" At this point, everyone on our side of the whole section, stopped shouting and turned and looked right at me. I WAS SO EMBARRASSED! Stacy and I would FINALLY, see the rest of the concert. After it ended, people were looking at Stacy and I funny like "WHAT THE F*C* WERE YOU DOING?" Before Stacy and I along with the four of our other friends exited out the door, one had to go to the bathroom. Wouldn't you know it, AGAIN, that son of a bitch undercover cop was chasing after us. The bitch of it all was that he caught one of my friends that was in the mens room. So when the five of us saw the undercover cop and my best friend approaching us, we figured that we were doomed. I then told the cop: "PLEASE ARREST ME, I HAVE A BITCH FOR A GIRLFRIEND THAT IS ITCHING TO KICK MY ASS!" The undercover cop then said: "GUYS, I DO NOT WANT TO ARREST YOU, I JUST WANT TO BUY SOME MORE OF YOUR WEED!" ISN'T MY STORY A BITCH? The bitch of it all is that my then girlfriend Donna wrapped her mom's brand new Lincoln Continental around a telephone pole on the way back to Sacramento. To end the story on a good note, Donna and I along with Tod and Stacy made up and we even went together to the Oakland show a month later on 23 July 1977. Then again, we had to since we already bought the tickets and all four seats were together. I'm glad we made up. I would like to let you know that I had to shorten this story. Actually, a lot more happened but I'll save that for another day. MY BRAIN HURTS FROM REMEMBERING AND GOING DOWN MEMORY LANE! I hope you enjoyed it! ZeppFanForever out. ROCK ON!

Dude thats one crazy story!!!!!!!!!

Hey!! I was at the show too! I saw Robert leave the stage area when everyone was out of the arena, but was too far and my ears were ringing like mad to shout hi or something. It was so funny, his back to me, talking to a guy in the wings, grabbed his coat and left. Were you on the second level?

I`m 14, so I didn`t actually saw a live concert.I would give anything to go back in time and see them all young, with Bonzo at the drums.Led Zeppelin are my gods! Well, few weeks ago I went to a friend of mine and saw Mothership. It was about 4 a m, his mum was sleeping and it came whole lotta love. My friend was in the bathroom. I turned the volume at 100%, I got my sticks and I started doing it on the sofa, table, armchairs, christmas tree, floor etc. Of course, his mum wakes up and was not very pleased when she saw a hairy thin boy beating with two drumsticks on her stuff.Sorry, I think that would be.I only seen another concert on The Song Remains the same, but there I was just charmed, I couldn`t do anything.
