Does Jimmy Page smoke?

Recommended Posts

I watched The Song Remains The Same for about the 100th time last night on Palladia and of the lot, the only one I didn't see with a ciggie during the film was Jimmy. If i'm wrong, please point it out where's he got one. I used to think he had one when heading off stage during Moby Dick, but I didn't see him with one. JPJ's is smoking while reading the tour dates letter at home in the kitchen, Robert's seen with cig in hand backstage and Bonzo is seen smoking at several different points in the film.

He used to smoke Park Drives.

Wow, haven't heard that brand name in years... they're the ones which had no filter :)

Jimmy might have been sober at the O2 show but he certainly was chewing the hell out of that gum he had in his mouth. :D

Boy, I haven't heard that name in years either :o --or seen them.

If the camera didn't catch Jimmy with a cig during TSRTS, that's pretty amazing, but he was still smoking during that period (I used to wonder how come the white poppy suit, in particular, wasn't covered in ash and cigarette burns in the front, since he always had one hanging out of his mouth). Although he's officially quit these days, there's that pic of him with Ronnie Wood ^^ having a cig break--I'm sure I've seen a version of this pic in which the cig has mysteriously disappeared. :huh:;)

Has anyone heard the story that he dropped one down his shirt during Achilles Last Stand & wouldn't stop playing to get it out?

I didn´t hear about it yet, but if it is true, he could be very seriously injured! :o

Wow... He's a bit masochist xD (or maybe he was just trying to act as if nothing had happened :mellow: )

Robert doesn't smoke anymore but I've seen photographs where he's had Marlboro Lights and Marlboros.

Off topic, but I remember an interview a few years back where I believe Plant said he'd given up caffiene. Did I remember this correctly?

Can't imagine this is true considering he drinks tea all the time :)

Me neither, nor would anyone want to be around me if I tried :blink:

Same!

Even if I sleep in late, past the usual "coffee time", I usually wake up with a withdrawal headache. And I'm not even 20 yet. :blink:

Well, I must be losing it more by the minute.

I would almost place my right hand on "Hammer Of The Gods," and state to those before me,that I either read or had seen an interview, in which Robert Plant stated he had given up caffiene. This was a few years back.

Can SteveAJones bail me out here?

I do vaguely remember an interview that said he'd gone over to decaf coffee--I read it recently, but it was from some years ago. So maybe he's only given up certain kinds of caffeine!

Maybe he gave up for a bit and then came back? :lol:

Ok, I got this. Not sure if this is true though.

In their heyday they were the lords of excess - with vodka for breakfast and champagne for supper fuelling a 24-hour party habit.

Yesterday, however, it was clear that Led Zeppelin had come down to Earth after a very long high.

Instead of the notorious "coke" lady employed on their 1973 U.S. tour to keep the rockers rocking, last night's reunion gig was more in need of a tea lady.

The band - reformed for the first time in 19 years - requested little more than a constant flow of caffeine-free herbal tea and sparkling water for their backstage dressing room.

Thanks! I feel validated now, and I need a cigarette.... but I don't smoke.

I can't recall offhand but I remember reading something somewhere (gee I'm helpful :slapface: ) where someone who worked at a venue Robert was performing at (wasn't terribly long ago) was drinking PG Tips tea at the time which I believe is caffeinated.

Maybe it's decaf coffee but caffeinated tea :lol:

I may be going out on a limb here, but it would be entirely within character for him to say that facetiously. As in a throw away line. He may have been serious, but it wouldn't surprize me at all if he were just goofing.

Gonna dig through some stuff and see if I can find the quote. You're absolutely right, Ev. Plant is a master at yanking the chain.

I think he don't smoke today. I didn't see any photos where he smoke a cigarette, since 2001.

I read, I think it even was in George Case's book he no longer smokes.
