Some selected highlights among many:

1961 - Albert Lee and Jimmy Page met for the first time; they would go on to often play records at each other's homes. Later that same year Jimmy developed an affinity for Albert Lee's sound (Gibson Les Paul Custom with Supro Amp) and bought a Supro of his own.

1974 - The Pretty Things sign a recording contract with Led Zeppelin's newly formed Swan Song Records

1981 - Chris Farlowe sang on three tracks for Jimmy's Death Wish II Soundtrack project

1983 - Page performs on benefit tour for his good friend Ronnie Lane

1987 - Chris Farlowe sang on three tracks for Jimmy's first solo album, Outrider
