The smell of weed filled the air. The lights dimmed, the crowd went nuts and the band hit the stage. With his Gibson SG double-neck strapped to his body, Jimmy starts pounding out “The Song Remains The Same.”
When the show ended. The New York crowd was out of control waiting for an encore. As the band came out to play a few more songs there was this deafening BOOOOM, a loud explosion that reverberated throughout the venue. The lights go up and Jimmy Page rushes off the stage.
Some guy from the audience threw a lit cherry bomb up onto the stage and it went off on Jimmy’s right hand. We were all shocked. I was devastated thinking he may never be able to play again.
I remember Robert Plant was furious. He said something like “we will never play in New Your City again” and he walked off the stage The crowd was booing and yelling. I was getting nervous, bracing for a riot. No one knew what was going to happen. It seemed like the show was over but no one left. And about 30 minutes later the band came out, Jimmy’s hand wrapped in a bloody cloth. Apparently, Jimmy wasn’t done and wanted to play some more. I think they finished up with two songs – “Whole Lotta Love” and “Rock and Roll.”
What an amazing and crazy night. And it was about to get a little nuttier. As I was leaving I had to visit the men’s room. That’s when I saw one of the strangest things I had ever seen up to that point in my life. The line was so long that guys got sick of waiting to result in a line of men peeing into the sinks. Welcome to New York circa 1977.
