Ozzy w/ Randy Rhoads – Cleveland, OH 1981

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Being an old fart there are many shows I would like to go back in time and film. In 1967 went to my first two concerts like a week apart. Jimi Hendrix and the following week Cream. Any of the seven Zeppelin shows I saw. The two Deep Purple reunion shows I was at in 1985 at The UIC Pavillion. Also have to throw in Queens first Chicago show at The Auditorium Theatre. The Queen show at Chicago Stadium with Thin Lizzy opening would be another one.

Think how much money we would save on tickets. Back in the late 60′s there was a place called The Kinetic Playground on the north side of Chicago.Every big group played there. Led Zeppelin with Jethro Tull as the opening act. Tickets in advance $4.00 and $5.00 at the door the night of the show. How much would a double bill like that cost today.

single-8: Filmed in 1973 over several nights…

But the live footage was unusable and they had to stage a reshoot of the entire show for the movie.


“True or false: The performances from The Song Remains the Same, the concert film that supposedly documents Led Zeppelin’s 1973 Madison Square Garden shows weren’t actually filmed at Madison Square Garden?

Mostly true!

It’s not exactly a secret but it’s neither something that seems to be widely known by the general public, or even most Led Zeppelin fans for that matter. Now I’m not trying to imply here that Led Zeppelin didn’t even play Madison Square Garden for three nights in late July of 1973, because of course they did and The Song Remains the Same‘s original director, Joe Massot (Wonderwall) was there with a camera crew trained on them when they did. This much is not being disputed.

The problem was, as the group and their manager Peter Grant found out only after they’d fired Massot from the project, is that he’d gotten inadequate—practically unusable—coverage that wouldn’t sync properly or cut. Some great shots but nothing that could be used to create an edited sequence.”
