Here is a photo of Jimmy Page right after the Concert in Chicago from 1977.
How does he look?
Howard Stern in a remake of "Weekend at Bernie's"!
I don't think he had a gym membership
He doesn't look well.
Like he needs to eat something.
Like a musician who just got done putting on a rockin' good show!
I like the Howard Stern comment-I could see that.
Just wondering, is being so skinny the reason why his nose appears so big, compared with anything seen since a couple of decades? I mean he is unrecognizable! Like something happened to his nose (badly broken maybe?) and changed his features kind of radically since then...
The SS cap is a nice touch.
Banana Daiquiri diet.
Zeppelin played four nights in Chicago in '77; Page wore the infamous "Stormtrooper" outfit -some of which he's wearing in the pic above- on the night of the last show, April 10 (Easter Sunday!). IIRC Jimmy wore the standard 1977 white "Dragon Suit" for the other three shows. He had his supposed bout with 'gastroentritis' the third night, forcing a premature end to the show.
They were going to come back to Chicago to play another night, making up for the short show, but it never came to pass. Chicago was also the opening stop on the 1980 U.S. tour that never happened.
The second Chicago '77 show on April 7 had to be shortened because the Blackhawks were in the playoffs and there was a game on the 8th. Zep had to finish by 11:00, which in 1977 was a tall order, considering they were playing three hour shows- at least an hour of which was piano, drum and bowed guitar solos
It's called heroin kids. Not good
Obviously his look didn't scare away good looking women.
Rock stars don't eat. Just ask John Bonjovi
This woman appears to be fascinated with Jimmy's nipples.
Hmmmmm...on a plane and still in his stage gear? Must have jumped offstage into a limo and barreled to the airport. Also, who is that guy on the left?
The April 9 food-poisoning show only lasted about a half-dozen songs before Jimmy collapsed. He apparently came back the next night in the stormtrooper outfit and was full of energy. It probably took all he had to pull it out, considering his sickly, emaciated state of body and mind. He couldn't remember songs, setlists and intros. At times Plant had to babysit Jimmy onstage during that wretched tour. Too much smack and Jack and not enough vegetables.
And if she were sitting there topless he'd no doubt be fascinated with hers.
Who's the other guy?
To put it mildly Jimmy was strung out. That was pretty much a horrible tour especially when LZ got to Oakland.
A Ron Wood impersonator?
Looks like he needs a few pork pies down him.
I wouldn't kick her out of bed though.
Does anyone know who the woman is? Is she an anonymous groupie, or was she known? She has pretty good access to Jimmy Page.
Her name is Audrey.
Here she's with Robert and Peter Grant.
I was thinking that it looks like it could have been Ron, Keef, OR Mick. Or just some anonymous dude in the 70s....
I believe the guy is UK rock writer of the time(and still I think) Nick Kent.
Separate names with a comma.
