On This Day 16 April

In 1965 Jimmy Page played guitar for Lulu and the Luvvers' cover of the Rolling Stones' song, Surprise, Surprise, released on April 16 of that year.  Lulu Kennedy-Cairns,  a Scottish singer, is known for To Sir with Love from the film of the same name and for the title song to the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun.

Today sees the release of 'Surprise Surprise' / 'Satisfied'. I played guitar on 'Surprise Surprise', a Rolling Stones song recorded by Lulu. It would have been done at Decca Number 2 Studios in West Hampstead, London.


  1. Id love to know the list of artists and their songs jimmy played on im pretty sure you played on some donovans songs

  2. Jimmy Page did provide guitar for Donovan, and this blog has talked about that. You can find links to those songs at

    Jimmy played on literally hundreds of songs. Maybe over a thousand. One of these days I'll get around to compiling a list of them with (hopefully) links to the songs, too. One of these days.
