“The kids cheered every time the lights went on and a spotlight revealed Jimmy [Page] bowing his electric guitar, eliciting stygian growls and demonic shrieks, as if to draw the Dark One from his lair in hell. Invariably, some of the more astute of Led Zeppelin's listeners realized that what they were watching was in part a magic show.”
Stephen Davis, LZ-'75: The Lost Chronicles of Led Zeppelin's 1975 American Tour

“While the sound mixing was underway, Bonzo was on the loose, taking care of buisness his own way. One night he showed up backstage at a Deep Purple concert at the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. Bonzo was drunk and in very high spirits, and was wobbling on his feet in the wings when he noticed a free microphone during a lull in the music. Staggering forward, Bonzo walked out onto the stage before the Deep Purple roadies could grab him. The group stopped playing, amazed, as Bonzo grabbed the mike and shouted, 'My name is John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, and I just wanna tell ya that we got a new album comin' out and that it's fuckin' great!!' Then Bonzo turned to leave, but before he went he turned back and gratuitously insulted Deep Purple's guitarist. 'And as far as Tommy Bolin is concerned, he can't play for shit!!”

“Неземните ултратънки лазерни лъчи разсичат въздуха, докато трае шоуто на Джими с лъка, а Плант вкарва откъси от "Woodstock". Представлението завършва със "Stairway to Heaven", последвана от бисовете "Whole Lotta Love" и "Black Dog". И така - пет поредни вечери.”
Stephen Davis, Hammer of the Gods
