Spread the word, Daddy-o. Spread the word.

:) sorry about the delay "SAJ" will be in contact as soon as he finds out the answer, think its just a session player in the vid ?? as didn't Jimmy or Jeff play on that track on the record.

Plant is dancing around in front of old footage. The guitarist is not actually playing RAM he is just playing in the old footage. Mainly in the first minute.

.....nice you sticking up for SAJ,that shows a human side to yourself, he knows alot and thats useful, in fact its great that someone will look up for the rest of us, but like everyone else he can't escape having the rise taken out of him, however good his Zeppelin research skills are. Even I have asked him in the past about stuff if I do't know........................so Mr Ron can you take your tongue firmly out from between the butt cheeks.

:rolleyes: Have a nice day

PS we all want to know the answer to the posters question and hopefully someone can tell us the answer, maybe you could do some research and come back and tell us.

It goes back and forth between that footage and footage of a Rockabilly band. They are wearing plaid coats. The guitarist plays an Artur Lang Archtop. They appear at .17, .25, .39 etc.

My guess is German Rockabilly player, Paul Wuerges. Probably playing "Black Boy Johnny".

I'll see if I can track down the original rockabilly band footage. It may confirm your hunch.
