An intriguing video of Neil.

I like seeing the dancing teens in the audience. I like the girls' fashions and boots.

There is a nice 60's vibe to the video.

I didn't know that Ritchie Blackmore also played with Neil. Nice to learn something new!

Edited to say: Check out Neil's hip action, LOL. I bet that this song and performance was a bit risque for the mid 60's, do you think? Maybe not.

I, too, am sad to read this news. However, to be perfectly honest, this is the very first time I have ever seen or heard Neil Christian perform and sing. I think that he is more famous for giving Jimmy Page his first big break and taking on the young guitarist than he is for his contribution to Rock and Roll. I would say a mere "footnote" to the musical "evolution" of Jimmy Page and that of Led Zeppelin. I say that would no disrepect at all.

On a lighter note: I think that Neil Christian may have actually and accidentally performed what would be known by millions of Michael Jackson fans some 25+ years later as the "Moonwalk".

Neil Christian really shines on Jimmy Page Session Man I and II. He's got a great persona. Now that I can see his body language (on the video above) I'm even more impressed. Thanks Neil. You've got a good ear. Thanks and rest in peace.

The song he sings in the video reminds me of the sort of Anthony Newley-influenced stuff David Bowie was singing in that era (and thankfully dropped!). I'd like to know what show that was taken from, I don't recognize it. Maybe it was a local show somewhere.
