On This Day 4 October

Something to Crowe about
1999 04 October On This Day Jimmy Page tour rehearsals with The Black Crowes 
  • 1968 Led Zeppelin - Newcastle, UK at Mayfair Ballroom
  • 1969 Led Zeppelin - Rotterdam, Netherlands at Circus Theatre
  • 1972 Led Zeppelin - Osaka, Japan at Festival Hall
  • 1999 Jimmy Page with The Black Crowes rehearsal
Jimmy Page seemed to be more light-hearted with the Black Crowes than he had been for a long time. He had jammed with the band in 1995 and they'd been his backing band for the July 1999 SCREAM benefit.

"The Crowes are really known for jamming and ad-libbing. And that's what I've been doing ever since I've been playing," Jimmy Page said in a July 2000 interview with Guitar World.

Not the perfect band, perhaps - certainly nothing of the caliber of Led Zeppelin - but with The Black Crowes sometimes Jimmy let himself loose like he hadn't really done since Outrider.

Watching the rehearsal is really cool. The sound from the video below is unbalanced but you can hear the master's guitar loud and clear. Oh, for a mic that picked up what Jimmy was saying, but even so, I just love that rehearsal video.
