Actually there are 2 Neils...

One Neil is a super mellow laid back fellow and plays a Martin acoustic.

The other Neil is more aggressive and plays an old modified black Les Paul thru an assortment of
Fender amps and gizmos. This Neil plays with Crazy Horse and is the "Godfather of Grunge".

All I remember about 1969, you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing "Sugar Sugar"
Monster hit of that summer
Hahaha, I have the "Sugar Sugar" album!

But the following winter was long and dark. Enter Led Zeppelin ... A little different, right?

The radio station I listened to was AM Top 40 all the way, but every week or so they'd play a new album in its entirety. If people liked it, they'd play it again.

I really don't remember. They were always sort of a staple for me. My aunt and uncle had an extensive music collection and knowlege and played in a band so if I had to guess it was probably from them.

I do remember when CD players first came out and when I bought my first one I also bought the entire box set of Led Zeppelin at the same time.

Goodness gracious... I'm thinking in junior high... possibly at a dance... maybe at a party... or maybe even in someone's car.

I guess you never listened to Neil Young's stuff with Crazy Horse (i.e. the band with which Neil Young recorded most of his best songs).

I remember my friend had a copy of Led Zeppelin 4, and we would sit around and listen to the record on his dads hi-fi when He was not home ............ Then we went to the House of Holy concert at Cobo Arena in Detroit way back in July 1973, and we had the worst seats in the show , but the concerts was still great , but Jimmy Page did improvise many Guitar solos which did not sound like the records Guitar work in those days ...........Some people complained about Jimmy Pages guitar and Roberts Plant singing the verses twice like he forgot to words in those days But they were still great to me ..... Even the radio show in The Detroit area never played Led Zeppelin music
