In the latest post he shared through his official Instagram account, Jimmy Page took fans back to 2008 and recalled the special event he attended with the professional football player David Beckham and the British singer Leona Lewis.
When he was talking about that day, Jimmy said:
“On this day in 2008, I performed at the Olympic closing ceremony in Beijing where the baton was passed on, so to speak, to London 2012.
The cast members had been secretly rehearsing in London and Beijing.
Armed with the double-decker bus, ballet, hip hop dancers and David Beckham, Leona Lewis and I performed ‘Whole Lotta Love’ which was augmented by Philip Shepherd’s string arrangement and Penderecki-like swoops.
Along with many, I had been intoxicated by Leona’s performances on The X Factor and I was curious as to how she would approach ‘Whole Lotta Love’ – her classy delivery was sultry and impeccable and her visual performance, dazzling, to say the least!
This was, without doubt, one of the high points of my career and it was one happy man who performed with such a remarkable talent.”
