On This Day 16 March

A riot wherever Jimmy Page appears
1965 16 March On This Day Jimmy Page visiting LA with Immediate Records
  • 1968 The Yardbirds - Paris, France at Le Terminus
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - Copenhagen, Denmark at Tivolis Koncertsal
  • 1973 Led Zeppelin - Vienna, Austria at Weiner Stadhalle
  • 1985 Jimmy Page - The Firm - Costa Mesa, CA at Pacific Coliseum

Jimmy Page worked briefly with Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate Records as staff producer, which included auditioning musicians for the label. His experience as a session guitarist stood him in good stead since even at just 21 years old Jimmy Page already had worked with many of the big names in music, and through Immediate he would network with even more. However, the lure of performing was greater than that of the production end of music - in June of the following year Jimmy Page joined The Yardbirds.
The Yardbirds were in France on this day but the band had pre-recorded a segment that BBC aired as  Episode 493 of Live with the BBC.
