Led Zeppelin founder Jimmy Page returns to Seattle site where band played in 1969

SEATTLE: Jimmy Page, the guitarist and founder of rock band Led Zeppelin, was spotted at Seattle’s Green Lake this weekend, where Led Zeppelin played nearly 50 years ago.

The Guitar Store near Green Lake posted a photo Sunday of Page at the remains of the Aqua Theatre, which was constructed in 1950 as part of Seafair and demolished in 1979. Only part of the grandstand remains, and the site is now home to the Green Lake Small Craft Center.

“Perhaps he is on an archeological journey in search for proof of a pre condo boom Seattle,” Guitar Store staff wrote in the Facebook post. “The last time people saw him here it was 1969 before most of us were born. Keep Rocking Mr. Page!”

Well spotted! Wonder if this is part of filming a documentary for the 50th? I remember the Wilson sisters talking about seeing this show.

They stayed at The Fairmont. 

They were in the vicinity of the Edgewater Inn but uncertain if he stopped to take Scarlet there for a look around.

It is interesting to speculate why he went there . I wonder if it could mean that Seattle tapes will be released and this is a promo?

What better time to clutch at straws than the year of the 50th anniversary? It's fun!

In an article about the venue it said that after a final Grateful Dead show the place was torn down in 1971. So...? Still there? Sort of?

I started lessons when I turned 52. Im 57 now and went from a negative 10 to a negative 9!!!! At this rate I'll leave the "I am horrendous with a guitar" category and enter the 'I suck at guitar" category when I turn 80! Ah well.....maybe in my next life.....
