Jimmy Page, the guitarist and founder of the English rock band Led Zeppelin, has just posted a photo on his classic “OnThisDay” series through his official social media account and talked about the English rock band The Who‘s “I Can’t Explain”, which was issued as a single on 15 January 1965 in the United Kingdom. He revealed that he didn’t need but he played on it somewhere in the background.
“On this day in 1965, ‘I Can’t Explain’ by The Who was released in the UK.
“Today sees the UK release of the iconic ‘I Can’t Explain’ – the first single by The Who, produced by Shel Talmy and engineered by the great Glyn Johns at Pye Studios in Marble Arch, London. Although I had been contracted in to play on this session I wasn’t really needed but I played on it somewhere in the background. What a privilege it was to be part of that pure adrenaline rush.
“Pete Townshend played a blinder, you can hear a few of my phrases on the B-side ‘Bald Headed Woman’ on the fuzzbox.”
