Old Mick is taking the day off to go downtown to see Robert Plant and the Space Shifters.   While I owned the first five Led Zeppelin albums, I regret never having seen them live.   I know this won't be the same thing but it will be about as close as I will get to a Zeppelin concert.

I was too late to buy tickets.   I was lucky enough to get to see Aretha for free, up close and personal back in 1996 when the DNC was in town.   This time I will need to target getting there early and finding the best lawn seats where I may get to see him.   Is anyone else going?  If not, any plans for the weekend?

For those who like Led Zeppelin, WXRT 93.1 FM is playing a lot of their songs today.   Communications Breakdown is playing right now........having a nervous breakdown, drive me insane.

Good stuff!

Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon is my all-time favorite album.

Never got to see Zeppelin or Pink Floyd in concert but did see Blind Faith in concert (Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Stevie Winwood and Ric Grech).

Just listened to the entire Dark Side of the Moon album on the computer.

While listening, had a bizarre moment when glancing at the TV and saw Alice in Wonderland is on, on Encore. I must be tripping on coffee.

also saw waters a couple of yrs ago at the united center

it was more about the music and light show then it was the vocals to me

I heard about that concert because some friends went. They said that while they were doing songs from Dark Side of the Moon, the moon and clouds cooperated and said it was a spectacular show.

It's funny how they never mentioned the weather but raved about the moon. It was one of those rare events that I wish I could have witnessed. I'm guessing you didn't regret what you went through for being at that concert.

i am guessing 1977

chicago stadium..Led Zepplin

third row..stage left.

unforgettable.

they played a classic acoustic base ,i believe it was john paul jones, that was hooked up to a electronic crossover, that produced the lowest musical notes i ever heard, felt..you know one of those you stand next too, and pluck, or strum while you sit next to it, a giant violin.

not loud noise...but acoustic base, electrified..never saw that before or since.

i stood in line at 6 am the summer morning tickets went on sale on madison avenue with a pushy rude crowd...before arm bands and the internet.

i saw a lot of concerts at the old stadium, at very high prices for the memories, i remember the stones when they toured with a brass section for tunes like happy. the most remarkable band , that was an ensemble of grownb musicians each a star in themself was Yes, in the round at the old ampitheatre..back stage pass, front row seat...dated the college friends daughter, of the owner of Flipside records at the time.
  remeber how you could get tickets for concerts at flipside records...the owner of JAM productions and the owner of flipside were college roommates.

If you have a chance and have Showtime, you might want to watch the movie called Beware of Mr. Baker. We watched it last night (although I missed the first half hour) and it's a documentary on Ginger Baker. What broke Cream up was the hatred Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker had for each other. Surprisingly, Ginger Baker had trouble getting along with a lot of people and was considered trouble. He did love horses though and bought a lot of polo ponies. One thing that can't be denied him is he was one of the best drummers ever. It's really a very interesting movie, the music is great (although they didn't play my favorite Cream song, Strange Brew) and it has some interviews with some of the legends.

All Upcoming Airings of Beware Of Mr. Baker (Eastern Time):

Wed, Jul 17, 8:00 PM -SHO 2.

The best rock concert chanel is Palladia on Comcast.  They have concerts from all types of groups, all ages, you name it.  You can see the heros of the past one hour and the lastest and greatess for the future in the next hour.  Virtually, all live performances!  Few commercials too.

"the rock concert"

isn't this phenomenon played out by now ?

you gotta here electric music , solid walls of sound..

this was popular about 40 years ago now.
i think we all have heard it, and it had its time...

i wonder now how i let these goofballs influence the things i did in my life..

as an example..john Lennon...i thought was a very good artist in his day..very popular , his names' spelling  is even auto corrected by the software, that's how popular.

i listen to his lyrics today, and to be honest..

he was a drug addicted,(heroin) leftist trouble making liberal ***...read his book...they all 4 were.

Some may find this interesting. Tonight, my husband watched a show on the Military Channel about the Apollo missions. He's interested in it because he had been in the Navy and was on the Apollo 8 recovery mission. His ship was in the Atlantic near the Equator in case the capsule splashed down in the Atlantic. It actually splashed down in the Pacific.

He was telling me tonight about Apollo 8 that its mission was to orbit the moon. He watched a show last year on it and they said when the crew was orbiting on the dark side of the moon, there was no radio contact with the crew to earth because the moon blocked it. I guess I never really thought about what it would be like to be on the dark side of the moon. Because he was on this recovery mission, he received a commemorative coin and a cruise booklet called "Apollo 8 A Space Odyssey". The coin is the size of a silver dollar and is silver in color but very lightweight, like aluminum. On one side it has the names of the astronauts: Borman, Lovell and Anders with their likeness. On the other side, it says "First Lunar Apollo Flight" and "In Appreciation for your Contribution to the Apollo Saturn Project. The Apollo 8 Crew Carried Metal in this Medallion on Man's First Flight to the Moon"

We have some of the metal that was on the dark side of the moon. I met my husband 5 years after he got out of the Navy and I knew he was on this recovery mission and had the coin. It wasn't until tonight that I really found out what Apollo 8's mission was and, after the recovery, my husband spent 2 weeks in Rio.
