What is Jimmy Page currently up to? The rocker is celebrating the 4oth anniversary of the release of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti. Earlier this month, Page gave an interview, and he dismissed the possibility of another reunion for the band.
2003 marks the 35th anniversary of the first fateful rehearsal which brought together the talents of guitarist Jimmy Page, vocalist Robert Plant, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham in the summer of 1968. In the decade between 1969 and 1979, the British quartet released eight studio albums and a live soundtrack (a posthumous set of previously unreleased studio material followed in '82). 23 years since their final concert performance (on July 7, 1980), they continue to be recognized as one of the most original, innovative, powerful, and influential groups in rock history.
While their work in the studio was brilliant, Led Zeppelin's work onstage was transforming. In concert, the band displayed a power and charisma unparalleled in modern music. Never content to simply replay their recordings, Zeppelin used the stage as a creative platform in its own right - introducing material live before it was recorded, and always expanding, improvising, and pushing into uncharted territory. Their legendary, epic live sets - often lasting more than three hours - were shamanistic experiences which traversed exceptional musical territory, sonic journeys which were truly cathartic experiences for the band and audience alike.
On June 3, 2011, Jimmy Page played with Donovan "Mellow Yellow" and "Sunshine Superman" twice, live at the Royal Albert Hall in London, a filmed concert. Page made an appearance with The Black Crowes at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on July 13, 2011. He also played alongside Roy Harper at Harper's 70th birthday celebratory concert, in London's Royal Festival Hall on July 13 2011.
