  • 1966 The Yardbirds - Aberystwyth, Wales at University of Aberystwyth
  • 1968 Led Zeppelin - Canterbury, England at Bridge Place Country Club
  • 1983 Jimmy Page with Robert Plant for Principle of Moments Tour encore – London at Hammersmith Odeon  
Jimmy Page joined Robert Plant for an encore number, Treat Her Right, at Plant's show at Hammersmith Odeon in London.  The song was written by Roy Head and Gene Kurtz, recorded by Head and The Traits and released in 1965. The encore performance was big news because it was the first time since the debanding of Led Zeppelin that Robert Plant and Jimmy Page had performed together.  If the news stories are correct, Robert knew Jimmy was there at the show, but didn't know Jimmy was backstage and willing to play a few licks in front of the audience.

I admire Jimmy Page for finding virtue in other peoples' work, but that doesn't always mean I agree. Thus I have included Led Zeppelin doing Black Dog and also Immigrant Song to get the nasty mashup out of your head (see playlist below).

Because fail, Karen O.
