    Default OT - Led Zeppelin at GU -Kennedy Pavilion

    I’m sure this will get moved but we’re any if you old (er) timers at this show?

    The music version of buying Microsoft in 1981.

    I didn't know of the Chad Mitchell trio's affiliation to Gonzaga. I saw them in '64 or '65 in Santa Barbara...a beautiful, smallish amphitheater, outdoor venue, along with Peter, Paul and Mary.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Really want to know about Led Zeppelin's trip to Spokane in a blizzard and the trying to get across the pass for a Seattle read their roadies book on it! It was their 2nd or 4th US concert! Google it. I was there! “In the days of my youth I was told what it means to be a man....” the wife knows everything that ever happened with that band! The Winter of 68 was like non other if any of you remember that. Shoveling snow for a few hours before class every morning.
    Rumor has it Honest Abe ran out of Med school money so he put on a show with them for a 90-10 split . Rumor has it Abe made enough on the 10% to pay tuition for a year! Those were the days when everything was possible!

    Somewhere there is an interview with Don Fitzpatrick (RIP) about this.
