  • On this day in 1985, The Firm played Meadowlands with Les Paul.

During ‘The Firm’ tour, we were due to play at Meadowlands, New Jersey. I’d hooked up again with Les Paul in New York, and was really keen to introduce him onstage and establish what a tremendous influence he had been on myself and a whole playing and recording generation. Les accepted the invitation and on that evening, surprised me by saying that he had a small investment in Meadowlands going back some years.

  • On this day in 1961, the poetry at The Mermaid Festival was fully underway in London, with readings by William Empson, Louis MacNiece, Sir Ralph Richardson and Dame Flora Robson.⁣
⁣
I appeared on electric guitar with Royston Ellis, a British beat poet/beatnik with a fusion of poetry and music and this was quite unique set amongst the other poetry readings. Royston had visited a number of Neil Christian and The Crusader’s gigs and alluded to the lifestyle in the first chapter of his book The Big Beat Scene, published the same year.⁣
⁣
He also hung out with The Silver Beetles in Liverpool, pre- Hamburg.

  • On this day in 1966, I played Stourbridge Town Hall with five very alive Yardbirds. Jeff was in the band and we played some twin guitars at this time, but primarily I was on bass. ⁣
⁣
It was Stourbridge, waking up the Midlands!⁣

  • During the 1970 Led Zeppelin tour of Europe, sandwiched between Essen and Berlin, I played Frankfurt with Led Zeppelin with its close proximity to US military bases. The audience always had a strong showing of those servicemen and women. Elvis Presley had been stationed at Friedberg whilst in the army and it's rumoured that Elvis himself attended some shows in Frankfurt back in the day - it's highly probable that we played 'Frankfurt Special' that evening in the rock 'n' roll medley during 'Whole Lotta Love' to pay tribute to both Elvis, Frankfurt, and G.I. Blues. If we didn't play it that time, I think we played it every other time we played Frankfurt! 🇩🇪

  • On this day in 1977, Led Zeppelin played the Kingdome in Seattle, an indoor venue that held 70,000 people. It felt surreal, as we entered the building through an airlock door. Here is a section of my solo spot that features the theremin and the bow and the exploration of both. The full video is on JimmyPage.com today. It's lengthy but gives an example of my avant-garde journey with this sonic architecture 💫

  • On this day in 1984, I was invited and played a set at the Alexis Korner Blues Tribute at La Piazza del Duomo di Pistoia. It was an established yearly festival held in the town square.⁣⁣⁣ 🇮🇹
⁣⁣⁣
I was impressed by Georgie Fame’s rendition of Mose Allison’s Parchman Farm where he sang and played Hammond organ as a solo spot. After the festival, Ginger Baker, who had also been appearing, invited us for supper at his local home where he had a fine orchard of olive trees.⁣⁣⁣

  • On this day in 2010, I went to the BBC Studios in West London, where they had prepared a link up with Duane Eddy in Nashville for a radio programme.⁣
⁣
Duane was hosting a tribute programme to Les Paul and we discussed the massive pioneering contribution that Les had presented to the world with his composition, recording and playing techniques. As Les had had a coast to coast television programme in the states (The Les Paul & Mary Ford Show between the years of 1954-1955), I think it is without a doubt that his music inspired a legion of guitarists that would become major influences themselves on the early rock and rockabilly scene emerging at that time.⁣
⁣
Duane Eddy himself twanged the thang in the late 50's and the 60's and you can hear his character sound in more recent music.

  • On this day in 2017, Live At The Greek was re-released.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It was really great that the show was recorded at The Greek, it shows the energy of what was going on and the excellence of The Black Crowes' performance of the Led Zeppelin material was with characteristic swagger. My respect for these guys is immense.⁣⁣

  • On this day in 2011, I went to see The Black Crowes 'Farewell To England' tour.⁣
⁣
This was the last night of the tour at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London and The Black Crowes asked me to jam on 'Shake Your Money Maker' as an encore.⁣
I just couldn't say no, but felt really sad when I was told that this was said to be the last shows of such a brilliant band.⁣

  • On this day in 1947, Wilko Johnson, the Dr Feelgood guitarist and singer/songwriter was born.⁣
⁣
I saw Wilko perform at Koko in Camden in May 2013 and the atmosphere was electric! This was originally billed as his farewell tour (followed by his album Going Back Home with Roger Daltry) but thankfully Wilko miraculously survived a health scare and is still performing with full force today. Happy birthday Wilko!⁣
