One live track a day keeps the doctor away
Today we go back to 2008 when FOO FIGHTERS
played for a full house at Wembley Stadion in 2008.
At one point, Led Zeppelin icons Jimmy Page (guitar) and
John Paul Jones (bass) joined the Fighters on stage for a
deafening version of Led Zep‘s 1971 jackhammer
Rock ‘N’ Roll.
For the occasion, frontman Dave Grohl and the late great
drummer Taylor Hawkins changed places. Fucktastic.

It’s a bit of a weird coincidence that Led Zeppelin ‘s debut LP came
out this day in 1969, featuring their classic Dazed and Confused .
That’s my feeling after the sad news about Jeff Beck.

James Patrick Page was born 75 years ago today – on 9 January 1944 – in Heston, Middlesex, England. He started his career as a successful session guitarist, then played with The Yardbirds from 1966 to 1968 and formed afterward LED ZEPPELIN, one of the most famous and influential rock bands of all time. The band broke up after the death
of their mammoth drummer John Bonham who passed away on 25 September 1980, only 32. Rolling Stone Magazine once described Jimmy Page as the pontiff of power riffing and ranked him number three in their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, behind two other legends Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Let’s celebrate the icon’s 75 birthday with one of his dirtiest riffs ever. Here we go…
