Unseen 1970 Led Zeppelin Concert Clips Discovered
Chattanooga, TN – The Pulse:
Proof that rock history can usually be found in somebody’s closet — seven minutes of amazingly clear fan-shot footage from Led Zeppelin‘s legendary September 4th, 1970 concert at The Forum in L.A. has been discovered.
The footage, which is now up on YouTube, has been expertly synched with the classic bootleg of the show, titled On Blueberry Hill, and was shot by fan Eddie Vincent, who smuggled his family’s windup 8mm Kodak Brownie into the gig, which allowed him to record in 30-second bursts.
Vincent told Classic Rock: “I had really great seats. They were right behind the band. I had seats in the front row, right behind John Bonham‘s kit. The only problem was that you couldn’t really see John because the gong was there, but he came around and chatted to us while they were doing the acoustic set.”
