The 76-aged star Jimmy Page, best known as the guitarist/founder of the world-class rock band Led Zeppelin, has just sent a new “OnThisDay” story on his official social media account and revealed one of the sessions he did whilst he was still at art school.
While he talks about those days, he said: “On this day in 1964, ‘Hush Your Mouth’ by Mickey Finn and the Blue Men was released. This is one of the sessions I did whilst I was still at art school and on this I played harmonica. Mickey Finn and the Blue Men had applied a blue beat rhythm to the Jimmy Reid song ‘Hush Your Mouth’. I had done other recordings with this band: the guys were cool and were always good to play with.”
He also remembered the tragic death of the American rock and roll musician Eddie Cochran, who died at the age of 21 on the traffic accident in Chippenham, and paid his tribute to him.
“On this day in 1960, Eddie Cochran died in a road traffic accident in Chippenham, Wiltshire,” he said. “Rest in peace.”
In the comments of the photo, the fans thanked him for sharing those rare-known moments from his life. Also, some of them have talked about the death of Eddie Cochran.
A fan named Blane Hoffman said: “Thanx for taking the time to share these moments from your life. Your contribution to shaping of the heart and soul of our generation is deeply appreciated.”
