Jimmy Page in Beijing

Recommended Posts

Thought it was fabulous, even watching it on the BBC news site. What a brilliant combination. They should record it properly and release it as a single.

Maybe the future of Zep is with a female vocalist (surprised nobody has suggested it before now)? Now THAT would upset a few preconceptions and a whole panoply of apple carts. He he he.

Indi.

indi-

you're really gonna start something now!

Jimmy smiling and having such a good time made it great for me. Leona sounded fantastic! This show was put together so well. Loved the umbrellas! :D

Doesn't anyone think that the keyboard outro of this version sounds eerily similar to the keyboard intro of "Wait for me" by Bonham on "The disregard of timekeeping?"

......the performance proves page has as much stage presence as any other performer.

why hasnt he done more of this ? he's done basically nothing guitar wise since the day zep broke up apart, thats 28 years.

Just watched it on You Tube- I liked it, thought that Leona did a good job & Jimmy looked real cool! I will be watching it again tonight on the NBC broadcast, hopefully their announcers won't talk through the guitar solo like the ones did on the one on YouTube! (French TV I think)

Hej from Danmark.

We got to see (and hear it) it all here on DR1, without the commentators talking over it. The sound was good too, especially after the tv was cranked up to 11. It was as if the presenters were as shocked as we were that it was Jimmy-effing-Page! I'm glad I didn't know in advance, as the feeling of "no, it can't be...IT IS!" was absolutely delicious.

London 2012 rocks already!

Absolutely surreal to hear Gordon Brown saying "...Jimmy Page..." as he thanked them all at the reception back at the British HQ party (Boris Johnson's 'Wiff-Waff' story in HIS speech was hilarious. If that's on YouTube you could do worse than search it out).

I posted a still from the youtube video of the guitar cord from Jimmys guitar. Some of it, the solo perhaps, very well may have been live.

Hey-Up,

I guess you could be right with the "SOLO" being LIVE, & the "Cord Clue", But as its been mentioned, we have had to wait over two weeks for the "MAIN EVENT", & well worth the wait it was

to see "SIR" Jimmy.

"And It Makes Me Wonder"

Hang-man. :ph34r:

Well I thought it was all rather jolly.

It brightened up my afternoon no end and was nearly worth having to sit through an hour of a thousand smiling small children waving flags. And missing most of the F1 European Grand Prix.

Mind you the chaps in the wheels were cool.....where do you buy those ?

And it could have been much , much worse. Think Spice Girls and JP.

No, Thank You.... I will not think that !

I need some good thoughts to clear the pallet on my mind, after that thought !! :D

Thanks for the clip beatbo!! I thought it was great and Leona did a great job singing it. However, I wish the commentators would have kept quiet! It was very annoying trying to listen and have them babbling on! I just thought of something, if Rio de Janeiro gets to host the Olympics in 2016( they are contenders) and since his wife Jimena is from Brazil, maybe Jimmy can play again at the 2012 closing ceremony as well for the send off to Brazil!! That would be cool!

still, his work calender has had huge empty periods in it. guess he's got food in his mouth now.

Raising his children, enjoying life as an elder statesman, travelling to Cambodia, travelling to Brazil, the ABC Trust efforts, interview after interview, accepting long deserved accolades, photo shoots. Maybe not musical pursuits, but the guy's been as active as ever. He said himself that he's ready to turn his attention to music again. Patience. B)

I enjoyed seeing the closing performance. Didn't mind the lip syncing among all the spectacle. And as cheesy as it first sounded, I got the whole Beckham thing with the football: Kicking it off to Britain for 2012. The message was clear and positive.

As for the ponytail, perhaps he's preparing to revive the Yardies soldier look in a modern version! :lol:

:lol: typical bloke's take on it!

Miss H D you are absolutely right. Apalling behaviour, outrageous even we should all be ashamed of ourselves for even thinking it! Ever hear the storey about JP and the Otopus incident? Now that really is outrageous!!!!

I got it too, but it still seemed reminiscent of Wensleydale . . . :whistling:
