Former Nirvana man Krist Novoselic, members of Alice In Chains and Soundgarden also perform at Led Zeppelin tribute gig
Jimmy Page joined a host of musicians for a rendition of Led Zeppelin classic ‘Rock And Roll last night.
The legendary guitarist was joined by Paul Rodgers, ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and Alice In Chains singer William Duvell for a rendition of the track at Seattle’s Experience Music Project Museum. You can watch the performance below.
It was part of a benefit show of Led Zeppelin covers performed by a host of musicians that also included Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen and ex–Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin.
Page also picked up the EMP Founders Award at the ceremony which saw the likes of ‘Immigrant Song’, ‘Communication Breakdown’ and ‘Dazed And Confused’ performed.
Novoselic also featured on ‘Out On The Tiles’, before Page helped out on the final track of the show.
Page recently told NME that he is set to pursue a “new project” after completing remastering sessions for Led Zeppelin’s final three albums – ‘Presence,’ ‘In Through the Out Door’ and ‘Coda’.
The guitarist spoke of a live return earlier this year declaring that he needed to get “match fit” before he can peform again.
That path is now clear according to the man himself. “The one thing I haven’t been seen to be doing recently is playing guitar,” he said. “So now I’ve got the opportunity to put all my drive into playing the guitar and working out what way to present myself next.”
Page added: “I think it’s safe to assume that will be a new project. I don’t know who with yet because I haven’t had a chance to work on it, but I’ve got material that’s written I want to revisit and well, it’s an exciting time.”
These comments followed news last September of his plans to start a new group, with the aim of playing career-spanning tracks from his back catalogue.
