Zeppelin in Wheaton

Here's an interesting article on a local DC 'mystery.' According to local legend, and a handful of people who claim to have been there, Led Zeppelin played a concert in January 1969 at the Wheaton (Md.) Youth Center. This was just after their first album was released. No one had ever heard of them. But the show, as legend has it, was amazing.

There is no record of the show, however, at the youth center. And many people who worked there do not recall it having happened.

It's interesting, how hard it is to know what really happened. This isn't the dark ages--this isn't 'was there really a King Arthur?' question. I mean, did Led Zeppelin play that show or not?

Interesting article.
