Jimmy Page shared a classic Led Zeppelin poster photo on his Instagram a couple of days ago, but he didn’t realize there was an awful screw up when it came to the band’s name. Greta Van Fleet’s former manager recently revealed why the band’s singer is ready to front a Led Zeppelin reunion, but why it wouldn’t be wise.
Page wrote, “On this day in 1969, Led Zeppelin played the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara, CA – look at this incredible psychedelic poster for the show.
@jethrotull_ supported us that day and also on a number of dates in the US: I thought they were really good and Ian Anderson is an excellent songwriter.”
ledzeppelin_page commented, “Led Zeppelin didn’t play it was Led Zepplin 😂”
guernicailoveu chimed in, “I used to chat about concerts and the music scene here in NYC with the legendary concert promoter Ron Delsner because his offices was in my building and I always wondered if he ever promoted any of LZ or your concerts here in NYC because he was the king of the city when it came to concerts…I wish I had asked him but he eventually moved out to another location.”
Jimmy Page ripping a Led Zeppelin bandmate for a drug meltdown was revealed last week. rudyru_80 said, “Yeah, sweet misspelling of ‘Zeppelin’ stood out to me too. The amazing thing was, you hadn’t even been a band 1 year yet – more like 40 weeks at this point… cranking out some absolutely amazing sets!!! I’m listening to the Texas International Pop Festival 8/31/69 & the end of the 4th or 5th American Tour, amazingly! Point being, that the long set from this time period was hot!! Featuring ‘I can’t quit you’, ‘dazed and confused’, ‘killing floor’, ‘white summer’, ‘how many more times medley’, ‘as long as I have you’ / ‘fresh garbage Medley’.
These were some extremely ‘tight, but loose’ time period & the shows really reflect that in my book. #jimmypage there’s a drop, naturally in the 8/31/69 ‘How Many More Times Medley’ where the ‘Whole Lotta Love’ riff seems to ‘organically’ makes an appearance in this performance. Was this the first time the riff was played, or had you already worked it out? I know reading books on the band, you said a lot of the material on LZ II, III & IV came about ‘organically’ on the road touring. Wondering if you could clarify if this indeed one of those instances. When the ‘Whole Lotta Love’ riff made it’s debut, potentially, in the HMMT Medley 8/31/69. Please, let me know! Thank you!” Jimmy Page revealed how he and Led Zeppelin were robbed in a recent Instagram post.
