It was all performed with a joyous abundance that …

Robert Plant – guest appearance with Nigel Kennedy Gala Celebration concert at the Royal Albert Hall:

Daryl Way in Curved Air, Rick Gretch in Family and Blind Faith (check out Blind Faith’s Sea Of Joy)  David LaFlamme in Its A Beautiful Day, Flock’s Jerry Goodman and Jim Lea in Slade (check out Coz I Love You)  are all musicians who all bought something special by adding a violin arrangement within a rock framework. The violin bow …

JIMMY PAGE ON THE OCCASION OF HIS BIRTHDAY/ EXCLUSIVE TBL 38 INTERVIEW EXTRACTS/ 25 COMPANION DISC MOMENTS PLAYLIST

On the occasion of his birthday….
Jimmy Page is 73 today (January 9th).
In a career that has spanned over six decades – he has simply written the rule book on the art of rock guitar.

Jazz, classical and Eastern influences, blues, 50s rock’n’roll and psychedelic – he has turned his hand to all these varying styles over the years.
