As I was scrolling through the Wikipedia page for Roger Daltrey's 1973 solo album, "Daltrey", I read this excerpt claiming that Jimmy played on one of the singles from the album: The album was recorded during a hiatus time in the Who's touring schedule. The first single released from the album, "Giving It All Away", reached number five in the UK and the album made the Top 50 in the United States. He also released a single in 1973, "Thinking"; its B-side, "There is Love", features Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin on guitar. I couldn't find a source to listen to the track anywhere online. Does anyone know if it's true that Jimmy played on the track and/or does anyone know a place online to listen to the song? I included some pictures of the single below as well.
I was reading the biography Robert Plant: A Life by Paul Rees. I don't consider it to be a very trustworthy source, as I've already found several inaccuracies and Rees doesn't cite his sources in a way that be easily be checked. However, some of the stories in here are just too entertaining and funny that I'd just like them to be true. Like this one: On page 57 in Chapter 4, Rubber Man, Rees mentions (with no quotes or indication of any source) that Robert went to see The Who at the Kidderminster Town Hall in May (of 1966, I think, possibly 1967. Rees only says the month but was talking about 1966 previously) and at the gig Pete Townshend sang lead vocals because apparently Roger Daltey had walked out and after the show Robert waited for Pete and offered to sing for The Who. Has anyone ever heard this before or have any sources on it? Like I said before, I don't trust this book, most of the stories about his life prior to Zeppelin seem to be based on rumors and word of mouth from acquaintances mixed in with a few actual coversations with Robert, so I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't founded in reality but I was curious in case it was. Thanks! (also I appalogize if this is in the wrong place. I just joined and this is my first post after stalking the forum a bit without being signed up. I did look to see if there was already a thread I could add to and I found the book one, but there wasn't a lot of discussion in that thread and I didn't want to change the format. So please let me know if I should post my questions somewhere else.)
