Yes peachheads, I got my Rock 'n' Roll Time Machine up and running once again. You can attend ANY rock show in history, anywhere, anytime. Where am I sending you, what year and what venue? You must pick only ONE.

Where am I going? I'm going to revisit a show I was at, Led Zeppelin, The Forum, L.A., 1971. I was 16........and I still remember it clearly. Just a mind-boggling performance........I may have been very young, but my buddy and I knew we were seeing something very, very special........a show which inspired my to keep going and going and going to shows. 3-1/2 hours, five encores, and an acoustic set in the middle, side two of Led Zeppelin III. One for the ages, to be sure......the members of Zep were all in their early 20's.

Once again........where am I sending YOU??

One is almost too cruel...

Although too young to go at the time,
I'd go back to The Rolling Stones, July 4, 1975, Memphis, Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

I seemed to remember ZZ Top opening, but apparently, doing some digging, that wasn't the case. Still, the part about The Stones wanting to ride in on elephants, I remembered from the newspaper, were true, and here's a great link to a story all about it from that day. Its a truly legendary story in Memphis concert history.

Another short story, pic of a concert T-shirt from that day, setlist.

I thought something real cool was going on, that I knew nothing about, but was jonesing to check out. Keith Richards and Ron Wood, a day later (or maybe two) were arrested in Fordyce, Arkansas.

Like I said, only 1 is too cruel.

I got to see Muddy Waters last concert appearance.
He came on and did Blow, Wind, Blow, I think w/ Eric Clapton, May 30, 1982 at the Hollywood Sportatorium.....day before my 18th birthday.

Here's a picture, (man the Internet is awesome)

Beautiful pic.

I am fortunate in that oldcoot had a friend that was at the same show (Omaha, NE) and he taped it. Pinetop and Johnny Winter were in Muddy's band at the time. Amazing that 40 years later I received a copy of that show. The recording is not the best quality (not surprised), but a quality memory for sure. Thanks again, coot!

When you're in the Deep South, you have to be wary of the elephants.

Efus, you remember the great cup battle that day? There were so many plastic cups in the air it kinda' shaded the sun. And the pyramids on the infield!

Story I've told before about that day.....there were 23 in our group, we had 5 rooms at the Johnson Inn in Bartlett. Because it was cheap by comparison. Got there shortly after Noon, just as Charlie Daniels was kicking off. Stayed for the fireworks show aferward, got back to the motel maybe 1:30 AM. One guy goes into his room drinking a beer, with the remainder of the six-pack on plastic rings around his wrist. Takes off his cut-off's, plops on the bed. Notices a group of strangers playing poker staring at him. He says, "Sorry, wrong room." And leaves. But realizes his key worked. It wasn't the wrong room.

Turns out, the manager didn't realize there was an event that weekend, and hadn't done "event" rates. He fixed it by packing up everybody's luggage while we were at the concert, scrambling people's stuff, and rerented the rooms at a higher rate. As we congregated in the lobby, a girl picked up a chair to toss it through a lobby window, to get the cops out there. Manager calmly said, "Go ahead. We packed your stuff, we know what's in it." End of story. We drove all night, got back to Gadsden around 8 AM.

Now, back on topic. How about the riverboat at JazzFest the next year? Roosevelt Sykes, Muddy Waters, and B.B. King. With full bands.
