Jimmy Had Other Thoughts When He Was Younger

What if I told you that one of the greatest guitarists in the world, didn’t even plan on pursuing a career in music? That’s right. Led Zeppelin’s very own Jimmy Page didn’t really have a desire at a young age to pursue a career in music. Jimmy played the guitar from a young age, and we’ve dug up some footage of him for your viewing pleasure down below!

In the clip, Jimmy is being interviewed that the young age of 14-years old. Page talks about his guitar playing, and the many styles he plays. But at the end of the interview he is asked what he wants to do after he is finished with school. Jimmy replies, “I want to do biological research.” The interviewer then asks what he wants to research on, to which Jimmy replies, “Cancer.”

Could you imagine if Jimmy decided to stick with his original band, rather than meet the members of Led Zeppelin and not form one of the greatest bands ever to walk the earth? But, then again, maybe Jimmy page would’ve gone on to become a successful biologist who cured many diseases! The world will never know, but this clip sure is crazy!

Check it out for yourself down below!
