Jimmy Page attended a show by Roger Daltrey in California


Jimmy Page attended a performance by The Who singer Roger Daltrey in California on March 15, according to a blog post and photos from backstage.

A blog post published on The Who’s website about the March 15 performance said that Page attended the show and watched from the side of the stage. He also posed for photos with Daltrey and his band.

Here’s the full quote about Page from The Who’s website:

“‘Another Tricky Day’ – tonight Roger sent it out to Trump’s son, on his impending divorce. ‘It’s nothing serious, just another tricky day!!’ Shortly after, Simon called into his microphone: ‘Binky’s on fire tonight!’ Binky being his (and Roger’s) guitar technician. He’s the most-often-seen onstage crew member, with a lot of work to do! And did it well, too. He MAY have been a touch nervous as his former boss was sitting watching the show from the sidelines right next to him – a young English guitarist named Jimmy Page. Yes, Binky was guitar tech for the wizard of Zep, who was visiting and enjoying our show tonight – half the crew spent time on the road with either Led Zeppelin or Page & Plant tours. Simon Townshend said it made him a bit self-conscious to be playing right next to one of the masters of rock guitar.”

Page also recently visited The Beat Museum in San Francisco where he posed with two books: Simon Warner’s “Text and Drugs and Rock ‘n Roll” and “Kerouac on Record.”

Before heading to California, Page visited the site of a Led Zeppelin show that took place in Seattle in 1969, according to a photograph published by a local resident.

Page was photographed on March 11 standing on what remains of The Green Lake Aqua Theater in Seattle, which was the site of a Led Zeppelin performance on May 11, 1969.

Most of the Aqua Theater has been knocked down since Led Zeppelin played there in 1969, but the photograph appears to show Page standing on the remaining part of the structure which overlooks Green Lake.

Here’s the full photograph which has been circulating on Facebook:

Seattle resident Mike Mitchell took the photograph, and he told Q13 Fox about stumbling upon Page. Mitchell said he spotted a “unique looking” man and realised it was Page. He went to approach Page, but said that another man who seemed to be a security guard shook his head.

“He was taking pictures and they were looking out over the water,” Mitchell said of Page and his girlfriend. Mitchell then took the above photograph of Page, and the bodyguard held up a single finger, which Mitchell took to mean he should only take one photo.

The official Led Zeppelin website has published several photographs from the band’s 1969 Green Lake performance.

This appears to be the remaining part of the Aqua Theater that Page visited:

Page travelled to Seattle with his girlfriend, poet Scarlett Sabet. He was photographed at a reading she gave on March 10.
