Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has revealed that he is a huge fan of Red Hot Chili Peppers, and that Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler first played their record for him. Robert Plant recently made a ‘thrilling’ claim about his first mini Led Zeppelin reunion with Jimmy Page.
“On this day in 1990, I guested with Aerosmith at Donington at the Monsters Of Rock Festival.
I travelled with Aerosmith in their tour bus to and from the show. All of the time on the bus was spent chatting and exchanging stories and at one point Steven Tyler played me the current Red Hot Chili Peppers album and there was much enthusiasm and discussion about music on that journey.
Whenever I guested with Aerosmith we would always play ‘Train Kept A Rollin’’ because we all had history with that song. I played on ‘Walk This Way’ as well!”
Jimmy Page recently described a brutal Robert Plant performance. Page also recently wrote, “On this day in 1969, I played at Asbury Park, NJ with Led Zeppelin.
This was the second day of Woodstock and we played Asbury Park. By that time, the city was awash with tales, stories and rumours of what was happening at the festival.
25 years later, Robert Plant and I recorded and filmed in a Welsh leafy glade ‘No Quarter’, the title track of the Unledded project.”
