Music:

  • Led Zeppelin “Communication Breakdown” Led Zeppelin (Atlantic) 1969

Notes:

Some say that Led Zeppelin played a show to about 50 people at the Wheaton Youth Center in Maryland in January 1969. Yet, there is no physical documentation of the concert. We look for answers in the first of a two part interview filmmaker Jeff Krulik after the screening of his documentary “Led Zeppelin Played Here.” Jeff talks about what sparked his interest in making the film, and how he was able to get an interview with Jimmy Page.
