Today (January 9th) marks the 76 Birthday of the legend born James Patrick Page. Led Zeppelin's founder, guitar icon and Studio Maestro. So much has been said and written already over the last 5+ decades of the man, I thought it only proper to share more of his music instead.
It was 50 years ago today, Page celebrated his 26th Birthday at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall. The mighty Zeppelin were firing on all cylinders that night and thankfully (for prosperity) they decided to roll film. In this piece from Ultimate Classic Rock, Jimmy reflected back at the importance of the gig
“Albert Hall was a massive gig for us, and we really wanted to do the best we could,” he said. “It was a magic venue. It was built in Victorian times, and you in there thinking about all the musical history that has preceded you. On top of that, it was something of a homecoming for John Paul Jones and I, because we had both grown up around there. So we were all really paying attention to what we were doing.”
Further below, is one of Jimmy's first, known television performances on the BBC where he led a skiffle group. Make sure to catch the interview after the song...Classic!
