You Probably Didn’t Know About This
Jimmy Page isn’t done sharing snippets of his life and career via Instagram and we’re totally here for it. This is just one of the reasons why we love the internet and social media because we get to see and read stuff like this straight from our favorite rockstars.
In his most recent post, he shared a photo of him taken by Ross Halfin in 1999 and a story about one unforgettable performance of Led Zeppelin’s 1969 classic hit Dazed and Confused. He wrote on the caption:
“On this day in 1999, I performed at the Unicef Kosovo Appeal in London.
When the troubles in Kosovo finally subsided there was a hasty fundraiser put together at the banqueting halls in Whitehall. I’d been asked to play this event and I played it with my group at the time: Michael Lee on drums and Guy Pratt on bass. I played an instrumental version of ‘Dazed and Confused’ and I was told people got the idea of the movements being like a classical piece. It must have been quite spirited as apparently it registered on the highly sophisticated sensor equipment at the Ministry of Defence!”
Well that’s interesting but not altogether surprising. Jimmy Page has always been a monster on the guitar and when he plays, he goes all-out. It must’ve been one powerful performance!
