Hello, uh, hi. My name is Jimmy Page (huge applause ... Page extremely embarrassed to be getting a bigger round of applause than Jeff Beck). Um, (rubs nose), I'm here to induct a person of in-cred-ible musicianship (open arms wide), I mean, really heavy, man!! (cheers and clapping). Um, Jeff had remarkable foresight to stay off the harsh stimulants unlike a few of us here (laughter), mainly staying with beer and motor oil (more laughter) so, his guitar playing is as tight today as it was in 1972. Seriously. He's managed to keep the same hairstyle since 1965 -- and same color!! (huge guffaws). But, anyway, you don't want to hear me talk, you want to hear music. It is my pleasure and honor to introduce to you my good mate from Wallington, Mr. Geoffrey Arnold Beck!!!

Sounds like you have some insight.

Five minutes is a pretty long speech! (Apart from State of the Unions, etc.)

Well maybe it's less then. I'm not good at guestimating these things. I guess it depends on who's giving the speech. I'm sure some run shorter than others.

True, if it was Robert it would probably be more like 15 minutes. :D

*secretly imagine Jimmy with a roll of handwritten paper and try to read through all those words as naturally as he can for 15 minutes*
