During a performance in Chicago on April 9, Page fell ill and needed to sit in a chair to play "Ten Years Gone" before leaving the stage with severe stomach cramps. The show was concluded after only sixty-five minutes, with Page's illness later being attributed to a case of food poisoning.

Thanks Deb. I left one for you to post. :D I was up late enough to get a jump ahead of you at least once.

Being at the end of the Earth day (unless your in the Pacific)I wasn't posting the event, just adding tid-bits to what you posted. Thats fine with me though. Gets me on the net to search things out about our boys and helps me learn a little more about their history.

Not sure how much will stick in the grey cells though, only so much room up there anymore for info. :rolleyes:
