THIS WRITTEN November 29th 2022

I was there…

Me and two friends hitch hiked separately from Fayetteville we agreed to meet at the newest McDonalds, funny thing was we got there within 30 minutes of each other.

My most vivid memory is when Robert Plant sit on the grand piano and sang Stairway To Heaven.

I thank you for this article, it was a very good read, brought back many memories I thought were lost.

I to enjoyed concerts in the ‘70’s
To name a few along with Zeppelin are…

The Rolling Stones
Van Halen
Doobie brothers
Black Oak, Arkansas
Three dog night
Uriah, Heep
Bob Seger
J Geils band
ZZ Top
Blue Öyster Cult 2 times
Mothers Finest
I had tickets to Pink Floyd but me and my friends got high and forgot to go.
Lynyrd Skynyrd 3 times in the ‘70’s

And I had a late plane out of Birmingham, Alabama to go see them in Greenville, South Carolina their last concert together, I didn’t get there till midnight. My friends met me at the airport and we partyed that night only to find out the next morning their plane had crashed., it was a sad day.

In the nineties I went to Huntsville, Al. to watch a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd concert, playing was…

Peter Frampton
38 special and
Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I swear I think I recognize most the people there from the ‘70’s. LOL

Thanks for those great memories. They reveal your great passion for music and concerts. The story about Pink Floyd is something out of Cheech and Chong. Rock on!
