John Bindon directing trouble, Richard Cole walking across the street making sure he coast was clear for the boys, Robert being friendly per usual and signing for the fans. Just your average sunny day in June at the Plaza hotel in Manhattan, NY. This footage was taken thirty three years ago and when you watch it it looks like it could have taken place last summer. Oh, I was trying to catch a glimpse of my favorite band this very week but I was not successful. I did see three of the six shows at the Garden but thats all I saw at the Plaza Hotel was lots of fans waiting around with records to sign. Thanks for the fantastic footage.

Led Zeppelin was not on my main plate growing up in the seventies. I listened to them peripherally. I picked up a four disc set of LZ that was squirreled away inside the house. It's 2010 and I have been on an LZ jagfest for over a month. The band was unbelievably talented. Robert Plant's voice was a magnificent instrument. The talent of the other 3 members is unsurpassed I find anywhere. I wish I had been able to appreciate them more when I was younger. ...But hey, that is the beauty of music, it is timeless.

I would have to say they are the best rock band that ever played. When Robert stated the band died with Jon, that's the way it should be. However in their day and now they are the masters.

It is sheer joy to listen to a Led Zeppelin song. - R
