Robert's video tribute to Jimmy

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the help! I appreciate it. Now, if I could only figure out how to open an .FLV file....damn, I'm retarded on modern PCs sometimes.

I use VLC media player...

I finally saw it. What a beautiful speech...so warm and heartfelt. I wish I could've seen Jimmy's reaction to the speech. I imagine he was touched by it. :)

Damn, those British sure know how to speak eloquently. Not like us Americans.

Here's the American translation:

DUUUUUDE: You fuckin rock, man! We had some good times, and bad. Stayed in one shithole after another, but you and the other 3 just tore that shit up! Props!

Here are excerpts from Classic Rock Magazine website:

Robert Plant's tribute to Jimmy Page

"Your vision and resolve knows no boundaries, extending beyond the music, inspired and propelled by the great ones.

"Everything and anything has been probable and often possible in your work, always free from the chains of repetition and mediocrity.

"The challenge for me was how to complement your whirlwind contrasts, so many radical twists and turns with such colourful complementary construction, always pushing the limits from the comfort of the bosom to the naked raw edge…"

Watch the exclusive video salute Percy filmed for the 2007 Classic Rock Awards, where his old mucker James Patrick Page picked up the Living Legend accolade.

And the link which includes the video is:

Remember that to most observers, Jimmy was, at best, semi-retired until the O2 reunion started. He's been procrastinating on his solo album for ages. So it's no wonder Robert is writing about Jimmy's career more like a eulogy than anything else.
