Led Zeppelin legendary guitarist Jimmy Page reveals his mysterious story. He also talks about how he began a musical career in the 1960s.
Jimmy is one of the most influential guitarists of all time. He also had a rough time when he started music. He recently shared a new Instagram post on his “OnThisDay” series and mentioned the difficult times he lived during the American singer Jerry Lee Lewis‘ shows and album. In this new story his early days in music. Jerry Lee Lewis’ 1962 Mitcham show and touched the rough times he lived during that mid-1960s.
Jimmy Page shares a new post on his Instagram account and tells a story:
“In 1958, Jerry Lee Lewis toured for the first time in the UK. He had to cancel the tour and leave due to the newspapers’ treatment of him. On May 14th, 1962, he’d returned to England and played a date at the Majestic, in Mitcham. I had no money to see him the first time around but scraped up enough money to go and see his comeback at Mitcham. It really was the most extraordinary evening. It felt really tribal: with all the diehard lovers of rock’n’roll paying homage to The Maestro.
Then he added the those difficult days:
“It would have been easy to assume that Jerry Lee would have a sour taste for playing in the UK after his untimely exit in ’58, but he played with so much conviction and passion of what he, and only he, could do best: which was to be Jerry Lee Lewis.
At the end of the show, Jerry Lee Lewis brought his wife on the stage and the enthusiasm from the audience could have literally brought the ceiling down. The technique of Jerry Lee Lewis on the piano throughout his career has been something that was so individual and unequaled, like Chuck Berry you don’t need to hear too many bars to know who it is that’s playing.”
