JOHN PAUL JONES: “As far as I’m concerned, the key Led Zeppelin gig—the one that just put everything into focus—was one that we played on our first American tour at the Boston Tea Party. We’d played our usual one hour set, using all the material from the first album and Page’s ‘White Summer’ guitar piece and, by the end, the audience just wouldn’t let us off the stage. There were kids actually bashing their heads against the stage—I’ve never seen that at a gig before or since, and when we finally left the stage we’d played for 4 ½ hours. Peter [Grant] was absolutely ecstatic. He was crying—if you can imagine that—and hugging us all. You know with this huge grizzly bear hug. I suppose it was then that we realized just what Led Zeppelin was going to become. || Source: NME Magazine 1973, Nick Kent
