Episode 82 – The Heart of Markness Led Zeppelin Podcast – 11/6/69 San Francisco
November 6, 1969 was Led Zeppelin’s penultimate gig at the legendary Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The next time they tour the States they’ll be selling out arenas. They open with a few bars of Good Times Bad Times and it’s warp speed until the encores. A great show.
I talk about the 1972/73 UK Tour of Led Zeppelin, Robert’s voice issues, Zep’s final UK tour, and I play some of an unreleased multitrack recording of the Jan 22 Southampton show, and I also bitch about my grumpy health woes. I play How Many More Times/Communication Breakdown and Thank You.
