On This Day 14 July

Happy birthday to jimmypage.com.
2011 14 July Jimmy Page's website launched - this was posted in 2014
2015 07 July On This Day Zoso tee-shirt

  • 1966 The Yardbirds - Kidderminster, England at Kidderminster Town Hall
  • 1998 Page & Plant - Mansfield, MA at Great Woods Center For The Performing Arts
  • 2011 14 July On This Day Jimmy Page’s website launched 

"A lot of my studio work had been done with that guitar. I didn't want to take it out of the house. Funny that once I did take it out, it got nicked!"
~ Jimmy Page, Guitar World interview 1991

Interesting musical choice that Jimmy Page used for his website's launch and each subsequent year's anniversary post: The One That Got Away.  It could refer to his 1960 Gibson Les Paul Custom, a.k.a."The Black Beauty" (more on the guitar & theft), or maybe it refers to how his own website doesn't publicly archive each On This Day post, so they get away unless you nick them yourself.

From 2011 through 2014 the 'website was born" image was posted on the website with the appropriate wording (three years ago... two years ago... one year ago...). This year there is a Zoso tee-shirt advertised, with no music. For those of you into Magick, give a moment's thought to the notion of how many places Jimmy Page's sigil (sign or symbol considered to have magical power) now appears. We spread the word willingly, though we will never know what it truly means.
