On This Day 12 October

And now's the time, the time is now
1999 12 October Jimmy Page with The Black Crowes -  NY at Roseland Ballroom
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - London, England at Lyceum Ballroom
  • 1995 Page & Plant Unledded Tour - Ames, IA at Hilton Coliseum
  • 1999 Jimmy Page with The Black Crowes - NY at Roseland Ballroom
  • 2012 Jimmy Page with Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, Jason Bonham at Celebration Day London premiere 
Not that numbers matter to anyone who knows and loves Jimmy Page's music but...

Led Zeppelin was paid the highest fee for a one night performance in the UK at that time. Freddie Mercury was in the audience.
