OMG did THAT suck. I'd like to hear the SONG, please.

i literally had downloaded this over the weekend, and was listening to it the past few days.   I don't think it was this particular concert, but Plant's intro was basically the same.

Never heard the term hurdy-gurdy outside of the Donovan song.

Watching that video really made me appreciate the amazing talent of John Bonham. Also, if you want to pick a song from the Page and Plant tour that better highlights Eaton's playing try Gallows Pole.

/Nothing against the hurdy-gurdy, that was great, but Bonham brought a lot to the table particularly with When the Levee Breaks.
