Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page revealed what The Rolling Stones legends Keith Richards and Mick Jagger did to help launch the career of who he calls a ‘sensual’ young woman at the time, Marianne Faithfull, in a new Instagram post. Page played his role in continuing to push her career into legendary status by also recording with her.
“On This Day in 1965, ‘Come and Stay with Me’ by Marianne Faithfull was released.
The sensual Marianne had begun her recording career with ‘As Tears Go By’ written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards in October 1965. Jackie DeShannon had written this song for her and I played on the session. I played on a number of Marianne’s sessions at the Decca Studio 2 in London.”
He also recently wrote, “On This Day in 1969, Led Zeppelin II was recorded at Olympic Studios, London.
The band began recording what was to be the second album at Olympic Studios with George Chkiantz engineering.
‘Whole Lotta Love’ had been rehearsed at my house in Pangbourne, along with ‘What Is and What Should Never Be’. The guitar solo on ‘What Is and What Should Never Be’ was done at this session. Further recordings and overdubs were to be done in America on the forthcoming tour.”
“On this day in 1977, Led Zeppelin played the Riverfront Coliseum in Cincinnati. On the same day in 1985, I played the same venue with The Firm. Synchronicity in Cincinnati!”
