On This Day 01 June

The last Yardbird show in LA but not the last time Jimmy Page played music in L.A., that's for sure.
1968 The Yardbirds - Los Angeles, CA at Shrine Auditorium

I've posted this earlier than I usually do because I'll be away from the internet most of June 1.  Now, it might appear that Jimmy Page wasn't doing all that much on this day over the years but that wouldn't be true. There's more to a rock star's life than standing on a stage and weaving musical magic. 

In early June of various years there was down time for Jimmy Page of course, but often the time was spent preparing stage sets for various tours, attending promo events, rehearsing, or traveling to shows. Plus the business of being in the music business had to be dealt with. So yeah, it's not all fun and games in front of an audience.  Speaking of which:  I've gathered a number of photos of Jimmy Page: The Sporting Life.  I'll share those in the next post.  

Oh, and meanwhile, here are links to Sporting Life, an album by Diamanda Galas and John Paul Jones
