Joe Schmo Posted December 12, 2007 Share Posted December 12, 2007 A woman I was involved with many years back told me a story about Jimmy Page that I will always remember. First of all, I DO believe her. She isn't the type to embellish or sensationalize. Her ex-brother-in law, who is British, knows the guys in Led Zeppelin a little bit. Not like they're best buddies but they see and/or talk to each other once in a while. Anyway, this was sometime during the mid nineties. She, her then husband, her brother in law, Jimmy and about eight other people were having dinner at a place in Toronto (and she showed me a picture of all of them, including Jimmy, sitting around the table so it's no BS). On stage was some small time local band playing that you've never heard of. Jimmy went up to the stage and asked, "do you mind if I play a few songs with you?" I don't even have to tell you what their answer was. So Jimmy got up on stage and played a couple songs with them. One of the biggest rock legends of all time playing with a group of kids you never heard of. The guitarist in the band immediately and gladly gave up his guitar to Page and probably played tamborine for those two songs! Think of the story he gave those kids..."Jimmy Page played with us!" For the rest of his life that guitarist can honestly say, "Jimmy Page played MY guitar!" That's like if you and I are out in the yard playing catch and Mickey Mantle comes by and asks, "Hey...can I play catch with you guys?" Hope you like the story. Thanks for indulging me.
