Holy shit, you really need to write a book, I would make everyone I know buy it.

How's it going "Soccerzubs?" Thank you for your kind words. My best friend Tod and his own personal Attorney have advised me to write a no holds barred book of all of our crazy exploits. The book would definitely be thick. ROCK ON!

Hey ZFF.That flu can be a total bitch.I hope you're on the downside of it.

I've got a mental picture that Leroy the pimp looks like the pimp in Magnum Force.

Get well soon!

How's it going "jabe?" Thank you for your concern, the flu can really be a bitch. I'm finally well and I will finish the story tomorrow as promised. Actually, thinking about it now, Leroy the Pimp was actually uglier than the Pimp on Magnum Force. Leroy's face actually looked like the new King Kong. ROCK ON!

ZepFanForever - glad you are feeling better! :D Can't wait to read the rest of your story. :D

You should think about writing a book about the Zeppelin concerts for Fans. Interview other Zeppelin concert goers and write about their stories in one book. Just a thought.

How's it going "punksandwich?" I wish that I had a journal. Unfortunately, I went by memory plus I called and spoke with my best friend's Tod and Stacy whom are not married to each other. I had forgotten a lot of what happened that Tod and Stacy reminded me of. There is quite a bit of the story that is not even in the story that all of you have read. As for Donna (Bless her heart), she died in 2001. Burying her was one of the most painful moments in my life. Donna was also best friends with my late wife. If it wouldn't have been for Tod and Stacy, I would not have been able to go further into detail as I did. The acid, Weed and Beer was great, its a wonder that Tod, Stacy and I could still remember so much. ROCK ON!

Could I ask what happened to her.

How's it going "PennyLane?" Thats a great idea! I feel confident that there are many fellow die hard hard core ZEPPELIN fanatics out there that have some great stories to tell. I will keep your idea in mind. ROCK ON!

How's it going "Zeppelin_2008?" Yes you may, Donna died in a car accident on Freeway Business 80 in Sacramento, California in 2001. I truly miss her spunk, she was one of a kind. She was truly a hellraiser with a capital "H" but had a heart of gold. I swear, both her son and daughter are just like her. Donna was such an extrovert, she could light up a room with a snap of the finger. I truly feel that telling these true stories which involve her, brings her memory back to life. Maybe it was meant for me to tell these stories, there are a lot of them that involve Donna. R.I.P. Donna 1961-2001. ROCK ON!

I've been really sick today and have had a few strong drinks tonight that tasted like Nyquil. Please bare with me.

THE CONTINUING ADVENTURES OF JOHN & DONNA AND TOD & STACY PART 2

Where we last left off, Tod, Stacy, Cherry, Donna and I were packed in Stacy's mom's now stolen car and on our way to Oakland, California for tomorrow's LED ZEPPELIN concert at the Oakland Coliseum on 23 July 1977 beginning a 11:00 A.M.

However, we're not the only ones heading for Oakland. All of our parents were driving together up to Oakland as well as Leroy The Pimp (Cherry's Pimp) and his two toughs. The Oakland poice Department has already been tipped off by the Sacramento police Department on what to expect at the concert at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, 23 July 1977.

Which now brings us to late Friday night, 22 July 1977. I cannot even count the number of times that Donna and Cherry were arguing in the car, that would be a long story in itself. Instead, I am going to skip a lot of that and move ahead to when we arrive to Cherry's friend Sugar's house in Oakland. This is where the shit really hits the fan between Donna and I. When we got to Sugar's house, she was throwing a party and when we showed up, the party was really happening. Cherry introduced Sugar to all of us and she told us that she was going to the ZEPPELIN show tomorrow. Sugar told all of us to make ourselves at home and to let her know if we need anything. Donna and I started walking around the place and it was definitely drug heaven. Donna and I walked in a bedroom where an orgy was going on. All of the people invited Donna and I in to participate but we both declined. There were all having unprotected sex, there was no way I was getting into that. Cherry and Sugar than pulled behind Donna and I and asked Donna if she had anything to wear to the concert tomorrow. Donna than asked Sugar if there was a nearby clothing store in Oakland in order to buy some new clothes. Sugar said "yeah," I'll take you over there tomorrow. Donna then sarcastically made a comment to both Sugar and Cherry that "it would be good to go to a clothing store because you two girls need it. Donna continued on by saying that the both of you look like hookers!" Sugar than quickly said "we are hookers!" During that moment, Cherry was trying to tell Sugar to keep her mouth shut but it was too late. The look on Donna's face said it all. After hearing that comment from Sugar, Donna slowly turns to me and yells at the top of her lungs W-H-A-T!!!!!! YOU MOTHERF*C*ER this, you MOTHERF*C*ER that, YOU HAVE A LOT OF EXPLAINING TO DO JOHN, YOU SON-OF-A-F*C*ING BITCH! I could see that the rest of this outing was about to come to a quick end. Donna than starting yelling at Tod, Stacy and I to get our asses out to the car and lets go. To make matters worse, as we were getting ready to drive off, Cherry runs outside and says bye to Tod and hopes that she sees him at the concert tomorrow. Next thing you know it, Tod and Stacy are fighting in the front seat while Stacy is driving which was not a pretty sight to watch. Donna and I are actually trying to break up the fight when all of a sudden, Stacy hits a telephone pole. WHAT IS IT WITH TELEPHONE POLES? Since Donna and I were not wearing our seatbelts, we both flew and ended up in the front seat on the laps of both Tod and Stacy. It seemed obvious that the car was severely damaged but actually it wasn't as bad as we all thought it would be. Despite the front of the car being pretty crushed in, we could still drive it and that was the important thing.

We needed a map to get around Oakland so we stopped at a 7-11 foodmart where an employee that looked like a Deadhead was working and we asked him if he had any local Oakland maps? The Deadhead said "Yeah Man, right over here." I said thanks and got the map that we needed. Donna than told me to fill up the tank with gas and that she would pay for it with the credit card. I said ok. After I filled up the tank, Donna and Stacy said that they would take care of everything. What does Donna and Stacy do? They go in the store and flirt with the Deadhead and take him to the back room where they both pull his pants off and start running out the front door and threw his pants in the dumpster. Then Donna and Stacy quickly gets in the car and tells me to floor it. And what do I do, I FLOOR IT! While I'm flooring it and pulling away from the store, I can see the guy in the middle of the street chasing us in his underwear. I also noticed in the car that Donna, Tod and Stacy stole a lot of candy, chips and twinkees while I was talking with the Deadhead in the store.

There were a couple more incidents that took place later that same night or morning but I'll just skip to where we pulled up to a Mervyns store and parked in the back of the store in case the police were looking for us. After all, what is the Deadhead guy going to say: "Uh, I was stupid for letting the girls flirt with me and lure me into the back room and take my pants off and start running out the front door?" I DON'T THINK SO!

All of us slept for about three hours in the rear parking lot of Mervyns. We were all going to wait till the store opened so Donna could go in a buy some clothes. When it opened, all of us went in and Donna told us to buy what ever we wanted since she had her Mom's credit card. By the time all of us were done shopping, Donna had charged up a prettty hefty bill totalling near $600.00. I cannot believe how easy it was for Donna to use her Mom's credit card. The store didn't even question anything. They just had Donna sign the slip and that was it. DAMN!

We finally made our way to the Oakland Coliseum about 10:45 A.M. where the box office and doors were already opened. The concert was supposed to begin at 11:00 A.M. starting with RICK DERRINGER, JUDAS PRIEST and last but not least, the mighty LED ZEPPELIN. Here we were, all four of us, AT LAST! (I should mention to all of you now that originally it was supposed to seven of us but after the huge events that took place on Friday, on the spur of the moment, we kind of forgot all about them.)

All four of us got in the concert and we went looking around for a seat. Please let me point out that all of the seats were on a first come first serve basis. No wonder there was so many fights in the coliseum. All four of us found our way to section 224 and 225 which is about in the middle but not bad seats at all. All of us sat down together and could finally rest our poor feet. Tod was then commenting on how great it would be to have some weed right now. At that moment, Donna pulled out of her purse, an eight of KGB (Killer Green Bud) Skunk Weed. I gave Donna the biggest kiss that she has ever had. She also told me that I still have a lot of explaining to do when we get home. And this is where I start rolling a joint and Donna's hair gets tangled in the joint. When I lit it, it smelled like shit but it wasn't bad at all. The Skunk weed smell pretty much covered the horrible scent that the hair had.

After about an hour, Donna and Stacy each wanted a beer so Tod and I went to the stand to buy some beers only we didn't, at least not yet. Tod and I tried to make our way to the front of the stage to see if we could find both Cherry and Sugar. Little did we both know that Donna and Stacy were right behind us following us everywhere we went. Tod and I then heard Cherry's voice calling our names: T-O-D!!!!! J-O-H-N!!!!! Tod and I both saw cherry and began making our way towards her. When we reached her, Cherry then asked us where we were sitting? I said that we were somewhere in the 200's section. Cherry then said that sucks. It was right around this time that Sugar ran up to us and told us that Leroy The Pimp was in the stadium looking for us. Tod, Cherry, Sugar and I decided to take a walk around the stadium in order to spot where Leroy was. Spotting Leroy in the audience was the easiest thing to do since he was one of the very few black people that were in the entire audience. Leroy was also the ONLY black person that was wearing a hat that was about as big as his head with the longest feather that you have ever seen hanging from his hat. When we saw Leroy, he had two guys with him and all four of us starting walking quick towards an exit door which would later turn to running. Leroy and his guys then saw us and started running after us. Tod, Cherry, Sugar and I started running for our lives till we came up to a bathroom and not just any bathroom. It was the Girls' bathroom. Tod and I were saying that we can't go in there . At that very moment, Cherry and Sugar dragged both our asses in the girls bathroom where all four of us would end up hiding in a stall. Tod and I would look at each other in the girls bathroom with Tod saying: Remember where we were one month ago in L.A.? THE FORUM BATHROOM? I then told Tod: "DON'T EVEN MENTION IT!" Next thing you know, you hear the words that every boyfriend dreads to hear: YOU MOTHERF*C*ERS BETTER GET YOUR F*C*KING ASSES OUT HERE RIGHT NOW! It makes you almost wish that it was Leroy and not Donna and Stacy. If Donna and Stacy had been professional wrestlers, they would have been great tag team partners. And what happens next is something that I will never forget. Donna and Stacy approach the door of the stall where all four of us were hiding and bangs on the door and tells us all to get the F*C* out of there. Stacy then gets on her knees and looks underneath the stall and sees all of us and tells us all that we are all in deep shit. And what does Donna do? She turns into the incredible hulk and goes into the next bathroom stall and jerks the toilet seat off of the toilet and starts banging it loudly on the door while screaming at the top of her lungs saying OPEN THE F*C*ING DOOR and that THERE ARE TWO HOOKERS FOR SALE IN THE GIRLS BATHROOM! Sugar then said "OK, OK, WE'RE COMING OUT! JUST SHUT THE F*C* UP! When Sugar opened the stall door, Donna leaped and grabbed Sugar by the hair and started dragging her out of the stall only to be tripped by Stacy. When Sugar tripped and ended up on the ground, Stacy started kicking Sugar repeatedly while Donna was still pulling Sugar's hair and hitting her in the face with her fist. At that moment, Leroy kicked the girls bathroom door open and said that he wanted his $550.00 back that Cherry spent on us. At that very moment, all of us attacked Leroy and started beating on him and threw him in one of the stalls. But before we threw him in the stall, Cherry and Sugar would pull and tear Leroy's pants off of him while Donna would go into one of the stalls and with some toilet paper, take one of the turds out of the toilet and smear it on Leroy's face. At the same time, Stacy then took Leroy's hat off and stuffed it in the toilet. MAN, THESE WOMEN ARE MEAN!

Now it was six of us, Tod, Stacy, Cherry, Sugar, Donna and I. As we were all coming out of the girls bathroom, Leroy's two guys saw us and started running towards us. But before the two guys would continue chasing us, they stopped and were wondering what all of the commotion was in the girls bathroom. I can just imagine what Leroy was thinking with all of that shit in his face with no pants on. Then again, it could have been worse. Leroy could have been getting raped in prison instead of getting jumped in the girls bathroom at the Oakland Coliseum.

SORRY GUYS, I HAVE TO STOP FOR NOW. I'm still not finished yet. I can't seem to think straight right now while I'm still feeling a little sick. I know that I left a lot out of this story and that I will have to make some corrections later. I know that I can write a whole book on this incident alone which would take up quite a few pages. I have to take some more Tylenol, Nyquil and Robitussin cough medicine and go to bed. I will finish this story before the NFC and AFC Championship Games start which is before noon today. I hope that you enjoy reading what I have so far. In the mean time, ROCK ON!

How's it going fellow die hard hard core ZEPPELIN fanatics. Sorry for the wait. Because this story is extremely long, I feel that I have to shorten this story. If possible, I may edit this story later on in the future by adding more details. And now, at last, as promised, the TRUE conclusion of THE CONTINUING ADVENTURES OF JOHN & DONNA AND TOD AND STACY PART 2.

Cherry, Sugar, Tod, Stacy, Donna and I were on the run in the Oakland Coliseum. I truly felt like a fugitive. I truly believed that security at the Oakland Coliseum were now aware of everything that was going on with us thanks to Donna's loud screaming and noise in the girl's bathroom. As we were running around the corner of the Coliseum, there was a lot of security personnel running towards us from the opposite direction. There must have been at least 20 of them. When all of us saw them running towards us, we quickly stopped and started running the other way away from them. At that very moment, it did not feel very good being chased after at all. It was a very scary moment. What was even worse was that it really seemed that some of us were going to get caught real soon. Cherry and Sugar could not run very fast at all seeing that they were trying to run with high heel shoes on. NOT VERY SMART AT ALL! Cherry and Sugar would be the first ones out of all of us to get caught and I cannot believe that it took all 20 security personnel to catch two women. When Tod and I quickly looked back, I could evidently see that Cherry and Sugar were putting up a good fight against 20 security personnel. One security officer was holding Cherry upside down with his head between both of her legs. Cherry was fighting and yelling at the same time. It took many security personnel to contain Sugar. You had one security officer grabbing one arm, another security officer grabbing the other arm, one security officer holding one leg while the other security officer was holding the other leg. Sugar must have been confined to a psycho ward in the past because she knew how to fight her way out. Sugar actually kicked one of the security officers in the nuts before she was contained and boy did the security guard scream. Cherry and Sugar did not go quietly at all.

As for Leroy the Pimp and his two toughs, I later heard that Leroy got into a fight with his two toughs in the girl's bathroom resulting in them quitting and taking off leaving Leroy there all by himself with shit on his face. The two toughs even stole Leroy's car which was a brand new 1977 El Dorado fit for a Pimp. At that point, I heard later that Leroy was even more pissed at all of us more than ever before and was determined in collecting his $550.00 from me. I, on the other hand, could care less and was determined in not paying him one cent considering all of the shit that we have all been through.

Now that Tod, Stacy, Donna and I were on the run from security personnel as well as Leroy, believe it or not, the worry I was more concerned with was that will all of us be able to see the LED ZEPPELIN show later today? By this time, all of us had already missed all of the RICK DERRINGER show and the JUDAS PRIEST show was about to be over. I swear, it was something trying to hide all around the Coliseum without getting caught. Being on the run is no fun task at all considering that you have security personnel looking for all of us. We all decided to split up, Tod and Stacy going one way while Donna and I went another in hopes of not getting caught. I cannot speak about what happened to Tod and Stacy but they later told me that security jumped both of them and took them both away. I also heard that Leroy got popped by security as well. As of that moment, both Donna and I were the only ones left on the loose. But it would not be for long, security chased us all over the Coliseum until both Donna and I got jumped by security. I figured that I was not going to fight back, there was no escaping them. Donna, on the other hand, was not about to make it easy for them or go quietly one bit. I could see Donna screaming at the top of her lungs and cussing out every security guard that was around. Donna has always been a one two fighter. First she kicks her opponent between the legs, then she hits them in the face. Donna kicked quite a few security guards in the nuts causing them to talk like the animated chipmonks cartoon characters very briefly. Donna and I were both handcuffed and taken to a room in the Coliseum where we would both be met by Cherry, Sugar, Leroy, Tod, Stacy and numerous security personnel. We would all be asked questions as to what has been going on with all of us? I guess that security found Leroy's ID or Driver's License on him and took it from him because someone did a check on him and found out that there was 3 warrants out for his arrest. One of the warrants was for mugging a elderly Lady as she was crossing the street. Another was for robbing a liquior store out of $25.00 while the last one was for robbing his own mother's house. These warrants have been outstanding for 3 years without him ever getting caught until he met us. It looks like Leroy was now going to be put away for a very long time at the big house.

With Leroy out of the way, now it was Cherry's and Sugar's turn. The check on both of them were no better than Leroy's. Sugar had two warrants out for her arrest for Prostitution while Cherry had one warrant for her arrest for Prostitution in Sacramento and out on bail for another. I later found out that both Cherry and Sugar promised all of security personnel free sexual favors if they would turn their backs and let them go free which they did. That was the last time that all of us ever saw Cherry and Sugar after they left.

Now it was Tod, Stacy, Donna's and my turn. All four of us have been in trouble with the law for High School vandalism, possession of drugs, selling drugs on school property, stealing numerous "Student Driver" training vehicles and recking all of them while joyriding and vandalizing all of our teachers and principal's homes. The Oakland Police Department was notified and one of them, a Sergeant, turned up and starting asking all of us questions. The Sergeant asked us how all of us got up here to Oakland? Stacy said that she took her mom's car and we all drove up together. The Sergeant than asked what kind of car that it was and Stacy told him. When the Sergeant ran a make on the car, we all later found out that the car with that description was reported stolen. When Stacy gave the Sergeant more information such as her parent's names and address, it was confirmed that Stacy's mom reported the car stolen the night before. The Sergeant than commented "SO YOU ARE THE ONES THAT SACRAMENTO CALLED US ABOUT! At that very moment, I truly felt that not only were we in deep shit, but that we were going to miss the LED ZEPPELIN show. The Sergeant than said that he was going to try to notify all of our parents, mainly Stacy's, to let them know that we were all ok and the car was with us and not stolen. None of our parents could be reached. The Sergeant than said that all of us were going to the Police station and wait till our parents were all contacted and notified. All four of us looked at each other sadly while still being handcuffed thinking about what a bad way to leave the concert. That is, until Donna erupted! Donna started screaming and yelling in such a way that none of you have ever seen or heard before in your life. Donna said that she wasn't f*c*ing going anywhere until all of us see the LED ZEPPELIN concert. Donna then starting crying and screaming loud while throwing a fit or tantrum on the floor by kicking her legs like a new born baby does and saying that she is going to sue every single security officer if they do not let us see the LED ZEPPELIN show. Donna truly knew how to cry her way out of anything. Guess what, miraculously, it worked especially when Donna gave the Sergeant all of the Weed that was in her purse.

All four of us were escorted by one security officer and told us that he would get four seats together for all of us. All of us saw him tell four of the people that were already settled to get up out of their seats and get lost since these seats are reserved. Those four didn't even question it, they quickly got up and took off never to be seen again. We were still far up in the 200 section but we didn't care, we just wanted to see LED ZEPPELIN. By this time, all four of us were thirsty for beer but the security guard would not let us since all of us were under age. The security guard than told us that he had to go to the bathroom and asked one of the coliseum employees to watch us while he was gone. While this was going on, I noticed that a guy was walking down the stairway aisle with beer and left two full cups of beer by the entrance unattended. I quickly got up and went up the stairway and grabbed them and as I was quickly making my way down the stairway, I slipped and fell on my back resulting in both cups of beer flying up in the air and landing on my face and chest. NOT GOOD!

With no beer or weed, we would finally watch the LED ZEPPELIN show from beginning to end which lasted over two and a half to three hours. Despite all of the shit that happened to all four of us, it was still worth it. When the concert was over, we went to the Police station where we sat in an office till all of our parents showed up some two hours later. The Oakland Police Department would later release all four of us in the custody of our parents. All four of us were being yelled at by all of our parents on the way home, especially Stacy for wrecking her mom's car. When we all got home, we all went to Stacy's house where all four of us, standing up together like a Police lineup, were facing all of our parents sitting down together and explaining everything that happened. While all of our parents were sitting listening to everything that we had to say, with all of their faces having the look of being shocked with their mouths wide open, they all couldn't help but break out laughing at some of the incidents that took place. We all seemed relieved at their laughing until Donna opened up her mouth. Donna's mouth always got all of us in trouble. Donna said "So does that mean that we are not in trouble anymore?" At that very moment, all of our parents stopped laughing and said "NO" at the same time while Donna's parents said that Donna was still grounded for life. Stacy's mom said that she was grounded until she pays for the car in full which she never paid for it. Not only did Stacy not pay any money for the car, but she talked her way out of being grounded. How Stacy did that, I will never know. Tod kept his mouth shut during this conversation and that saved him from being grounded. I was grounded for six months by not being able to drive my precious 1971 Chevelle Malibu. The ONLY positive thing that came out of all of this was that the Deadhead at the 7-11 did not call the Police on us due to possible embarassment. All in all, despite all of the BS that happened, Tod, Stacy, Donna and I still had each other through thick and thin and that is what true friendship is all about. R.I.P. Donna, 1961-2001. ROCK ON!

One security officer was holding Cherry upside down with his head between both of her legs

Haha that part is funny as f**k. Hey ZeppFanForever could you post any pics of you and the rest of the gang on here?

How's it going "Zeppelin_2008?' Thank you for your interest in my gang. All of the pictures that I had are now at my sister's house in California. My Mom originally had all of them until she was placed in an Alzheimer's facility in 2000. I have already mentioned to my sister to look for my High School yearbooks and pictures that she has in tons of boxes in her garage and send them to me. I promise that when I get them, I will post them online. I also told my sister to e-mail them to me if possible. I realize that the end of my story was not as humorous as the beginning because I really wanted to stay true to the actual story as it really happened. Then again, the ending of this story was not really meant to be funny due to the severity of it. It really was serious and we really truly pissed off a lot of people in this story. Thinking about it now and speaking with Tod recently about it after all of these years, we both now realize that if we would have stayed away from the "Get Laid Cheap Motel," none of this story would have happened the way it did. But then again, SHIT HAPPENS! I really wanted to end the story on a good note which I really felt that I did. In reality, this true story was really about true friendship going through some serious shit but barely survived it all. I still hope that all of you enjoyed reading this story. I still have many more crazy stories to tell but they are not at LED ZEPPELIN concerts since I only saw ZEPPELIN twice. There are some crazy stories involving all four of us that took place at a ROBIN TROWER concert, THE BEACH BOYS concert, THE KINKS' concert, PAUL MCCARTNEY concert, BLACK SABBATH concert, many ROLLING STONES' concerts, PAT TRAVERS concert, TED NUGENT concert, PINK FLOYD concert, THE WHO concert, FLEETWOOD MAC concert, NAZARETH concert, LYNYRD SKYNYRD concert, THE EAGLES' concert, FOGHAT concert, DEEP PURPLE concert, ERIC CLAPTON concert, SANTANA concert, AC/DC concert, MOUNTAIN concert, THE BAND concert, JUDAS PRIEST concert, KANSAS' concert, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS' concert, THE POLICE concert, HEART concert, THE RUNAWAYS' concert, BILLY SQUIER concert, THIN LIZZY concert, AEROSMITH concert, ZZ TOP concert, FRANK MARINO & MAHOGANY RUSH concert, THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND concert and RUSH concert to name a few. Maybe I should write a book about my exploits with Tod, Stacy, Donna and I, there was never a dull moment with them at a concert. ROCK ON!

ZepFanForever - You should write your stories and keep telling us about your concert experiences. You are your own historian and the stories will be lost forever, if not told. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. :D:D

How's it going "PennyLane?" I swear, I have so many crazy stories to tell that it would take me years to tell them all especially in their entirety. ROCK ON!

ZFF, you definitely should write a book- I bet a movie producer would also be interested in making a movie too! Thanks for sharing your stories with us.

I'm doing fine, just college keeping me busy. If you ever had time I'd like to hear anything from you going to the AC/DC concerts because I listen to them too.

ZepFanForever - You should write your stories and keep telling us about your concert experiences. You are your own historian and the stories will be lost forever, if not told. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. :D:D

how's it going "PennyLane?" WOW, that is going to be one big hefty book full of craziness. Thank you for your kind words and I am glad that you enjoyed reading them. ROCK ON!

ZFF, you definitely should write a book- I bet a movie producer would also be interested in making a movie too! Thanks for sharing your stories with us.

How's it going "Stargroves Tangie?" Thinking about it now, if I died tomorrow, I can honestly say that I packed a good 80 years into 48 years by living life to the very fullest. If I had to do it all over again, I would do it again. I wouldn't miss it for the world. Thank you "Stargroves Tangie" for your kind words and I am very happy that you enjoyed reading it. I am really contemplating writing a book of an official account of my two years of hard partying with the late great BEACH BOYS drummer Dennis Wilson. I partied with Denny the last two years of his life and watched him rot away before my very eyes. I also partied with FLEETWOOD MAC and THREE DOG NIGHT'S Danny Hutton. I have some great hell stories to tell of how Denny and I behaved under the influence in public such as at parties, beauty pageants, concerts, Toys R' Us, the beach, drug houses, whore houses and at malls to name a few. Brian was no saint either, I partied with him also. My friendship with Brian continues to this very day and I am very proud of his recent accomplishments and achievements in the music world. Brian's comeback should rank in the Top 10 greatest miracles in Rock n' Roll history. ROCK ON!

ZepFanForever, great story!

Since The Who are my other favorite band, I'd love to hear some of those stories!!

How's it going "ZepFanatic?" I got into a lot of trouble at THE WHO concert at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco on Saturday, 27 March 1976. Tod, Stacy, Donna and I were causing trouble together again as usual. I would have loved to party with the late great Keith Moon. I partied with the late great BEACH BOYS drummer Dennis Wilson, his brother Brian and Fleetwood Mac. Denny told me of his experience of his night out and tearing L.A. up with Keith Moon and John Bonham after the last ZEPPELIN show at The Forum in June 1977. From what Denny told me, the boys did everything that night except sleep with each other. If Denny was hell on wheels and a true party animal to the max, I can just imagine how crazy and daring Keith Moon and John Bonham were. ROCK ON!

I'm doing fine, just college keeping me busy. If you ever had time I'd like to hear anything from you going to the AC/DC concerts because I listen to them too.

How's it going "Zeppelin_2008?" I have a lot of AC/DC stories to tell. I saw the Highway To Hell Tour in 1979, the Back In Black tour in 1980 and many more to name a few. I just took my dad to his first concert ever, I took him to the A T & T center in San Antonio, Texas in December 2008 to see AC/DC. My Dad loves Angus Young. At 76, my Dad fell in love with going to concerts. His only regret is that he didn't do it sooner. I told my Dad, "BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!" ROCK ON!

I have a bootleg of that Who show you were at somewhere in my garage...great gig! I agree, Moon and Bonham together was probably insane!! How about telling this story about the gig sometime?
