According to Guinness World Records, the concert holds the world record for the "Highest Demand for Tickets for One Music Concert" as 20 million requests for the reunion show were rendered online. Were any of you there to witness the historic concert?

A definite highlight of Led Zeppelin III, Out On The Tiles features one of the band’s poppier choruses that fits perfectly alongside the total rock action going on underneath. One of Jimmy's best riffs ever powers this heavy monster as the guitar line winds its way in and around the rock solid rhythm section while Robert dishes out a stellar vocal performance. The song is one of very few that features a writing credit for drummer John Bonham. As the story goes, the title refers to something Bonzo used to say in reference to going out to the bars, saying he was going ‘out on the tiles.’ Jimmy and Robert seized on the idea and ran with it, but not without giving credit where twas due. Plant manages to fit in a mouthful and a half of lyrics into a small space, which only adds to the urgency of the tune. Out On The Tiles is a pure hard rocking groover that never lets up. The syncopation of the riff makes it instantly memorable as it grabs you and pulls you in. Though the recording has a real live feel to it, the song was rarely played in concert by the band. Shame, as it truly is one of their best and most fierce songs. Name a few of your favorite tracks off Led Zeppelin III...
KEITH RICHARDS BDAY: I met Keith once backstage at a Rolling Stones concert in Philly. I reached out to shake his hand and...I felt my life energy flowing out of my hand into his. As my head grew faint, I watched Keith's face as it grew younger while his grip grew stronger. I finally wrenched my hand away and fell to the ground panting. Keith threw back his head with an evil laugh as he sauntered away. When I looked at my reflection, I had aged ten years. It was then that I knew the dark secret of Keith's immortality. Damn him. Damn him to Hell! #keithrichards#rollingstone#rollingstones#therollingstones#rock#classicrock
Back on the promenade, first performer I see is my favorite @derekmaxday
Guy is ridiculously talented, can't help but stop and listen. Brings me back to highschool when all listened to was classic rock.
