JimmyPage.com has changed it up this year!

Recommended Posts

Jimmy page.com has been a bit more exciting in my opinion as I have noticed over the past few days.  To start, yesterday I saw jimmy's site posted about the rock and roll hof induction of Led Zeppelin. The text was a bit snarky referencing tensions and egos as I remember, but I paraphrase...look it up I suppose somewhere if it pleases you...

Now today the we get an answer to what Jimmy may have done, had the Peace Concert happened in Bejing.  Quoted directly from Jimmypage.com, "There had been a move to do a Peace Concert, hosted by the Chinese Government, at the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing and I had been invited to appear. There had been a full-size classical orchestra offered and I saw a possibility of doing an instrumental set including Chengdu percussion and the orchestra. It could have been an interesting blend.

There had been a meeting with some officials where it was said that they would need to see the artists' lyrics up front and I thought that was fair enough, but a Peace Concert in Beijing could have had its moments of mischief. It was fascinating to see how it might proceed; in fact, after a postponement from 17/04/10 to 11/11/11, it ran out of steam. At the press conference at the Beijing Ritz I was given an award called 'Pathways To Peace' - it was the first time the award was given from the United Nations." 

I remember being excited for this event and being wicked bummed out when it fell through.  I wonder what Jimmy would have played over those drums.  The cacgce tuning all strummed out? Some wierd baritone-danelectro-looking-but-not-double-neck? 

It is nice to finally have some new content on .com...unless I just missed this last year...which is entirely possible!

Rick Garson tried for more than ten years to stage that Peace Concert. I guess bringing Page in was a last ditch effort. Jimmy needed a manager to say no to any involvement.
