Jimmy Page Does Surprise Led Zeppelin Jam
Page was on hand at the Experience Music Project to receive a Founder's Award and, despite assurances that he would not play, the guitarist joined a cast of fellow rockers for the final song of the evening, according to Rolling Stone.
Page hopped on stage to deliver the Zeppelin tune alongside vocalists Paul Rodgers, William DuVall of Alice In Chains and Moke's John Hogg, eight guitarists including Soundgarden's Kim Thayil, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and EMP founder and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, bassists Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses/Velvet Revolver) and Tesla's Brian Wheat and former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin.
In addition to Page's honor, the benefit event was a fund-raiser for the Seattle museum's youth-arts education efforts. The evening featured a lineup of guests performing tunes from Page's career, including former Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson and Nirvana's Krist Novoselic. Check out video here.
