Led Zeppelin Member Reacts To Horrific Accident


Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page mourned Eddie Cochran recently on the anniversary of his road traffic accident death.

“On this day in 1964, ‘Hush Your Mouth’ by Mickey Finn and the Blue Men was released.
This is one of the sessions I did whilst I was still at art school and on this I played harmonica. Mickey Finn and the Blue Men had applied a blue beat rhythm to the Jimmy Reid song ‘Hush Your Mouth’. I had done other recordings with this band: the guys were cool and were always good to play with.
On this day in 1960, Eddie Cochran died in a road traffic accident in Chippenham, Wiltshire. RIP.”

Page also recently wrote, “On this day in 2004, I visited Cairo, Egypt.
On the centenary of Aleister Crowley’s channelling ‘The Book of the Law’, I revisited the Egyptian Museum of Cairo to see the ‘Stele of Revealing’; the conduit to that event. I was curious to see how many people might attend the museum and indeed there was a small gathering of Thelemites.
Between the first and second leg of the Led Zeppelin 1977 tour I visited and spent time in Egypt (first image).”

“On this day in 1977, I played the Richfield Coliseum in Cleveland with Led Zeppelin. Eight years later on the same day, I played the Coliseum with The Firm.”
