Kevin, our sales director, really likes Led Zeppelin. We just had a meeting. I had some live Zeppelin playing.

Can you tell me when this was recorded? I asked.

He quietly listened.

1975....

No, 1973, New York City.

The dude nailed it.

Saw them on that tour. Orlando Sports Stadium. 

Changed my life, but not how you think. It's because we got a ride there in a 69 roadrunner.

383, four speed. Green, of course. Steelies with the dog dish hubcaps. Black enterior. Bench seat. Perfect.

I'd never ridden in a muscle car. The back road into the stadium was dirt, very wide, and graded perfectly smooth. The concert had already started, so the road was empty. Power drifted the whole way. I'll never forget it.

I don't remember anything else about the concert other than the gates were open so we got in without tickets, and it was incredibly hot and crowded. 

Before we arrived, there had been a "riot", the gates had been broken open, and the police had packed up and left. And all I remember is that roadrunner.

You should play a Greta Van Fleet snippet just to screw with him.
