I met Jimmy Page

Recommended Posts

I was in Europe/London for a couple of days.

It was an after hours business-dinner. London downtown, Soho square.I walked into the AutoMat restaurant and noticed a guy in white hair, sitting/hiding at a corner table with a couple of more people.

He resembled Jimmy Page. I made another entrance to check him out.Yes, it was the man himself!

I just couldn't belive it and I felt nervous & happy, both.

I waited for him to finish his dinner and kept checking on him like an undercover agent. Then, I approached him after 30 minutes of spying and met him and got his autograph!

I was with a group of people moslty Brits and surprisingly only one of the mknow of Led Zep! I asked them to what have they been listneing to all their lives!

It was a memorable moment on the eve of my birthday.

Sadly, I can't append the image of the autograph :(

I can only dream of a moment like that - I doubt Jimmy is ever going to have dinner in Detroit :angry:

Sweet story tho.

Awesome! Lucky you.

Just curious - how did you address him when you approached him? Did you say anything to him besides hello? What was his response like? Was he happy to see one of his fans?

That's wonderful! :D

Sometimes, when I am with colleagues or acquaintances, I am often surprised to find that not all of them know of Led Zep or recognize the names of the band members.

I think it was polite of you not to interrupt Jimmy at dinner. I hope you had a happy birthday, that would have been the best present ever. I'd still be reeling about it for weeks.

I looked at the menu. Sounds like a nice place, expensive though. I bet I know where you'll be dining out more often. What did you get his autograph on? (sorry, I often wonder this because if I ever met a celebrity, I'd probably have to get them to sign my library card, for lack of other ideas)

I'd pay more than 26 bucks for a burger if I knew Jimmy was there!

Wonder what Jimmy had for dinner? :P

Auto-Mat Restaurant

Wow! A menu, thanks! I think he had the Automat burger, I was watching/monitoring quite closely :)

Wonder if he frequents this restaurant or its his one of the favourite places to eat!

Thanks. I actually hung outside for 20 minutes to ambush him when he would step outside. But, he didn't finish ..... so I went in when he was waiting for the seocnd round of coffee....

Amazonic, yes good luck! Try hanging around Automat during dinner time ;)

That autograph looks a bit different than mine. I guess he was much younger then ;)

I said, Mr Page could I have your autograph please. People with him were not very happy. JP was a bit startled but then, he felt relaxed. He saw the page in front of him read: Jimmy Page (The Legend) under which he was supposed to sign. He was very soft spoken and asked me my name and how to spell it. I regret not atempting at a longer conversation but, I was quite nervous at that time!
