Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page took to his official Twitter account to pay his tribute to another legend, Little Richard, and remembered the day he first listened to him live at the bar.

As you might already know, Little Richard is considered one of the greatest vocalists in music history. He released over fifteen studio albums in his career and unfortunately, he died in May 2020, at the age of 87.

Jimmy mentioned how a great musician Little Richard was and revealed how much he impressed by his music in the first show he listened to. Also, Jimmy stated that Little Richard’s music shaped the Rock n’ Roll and said that his talent went under the radar during those racist periods of time.

Here is what Jimmy Page said:

“On this day in 1969, Led Zeppelin played Pirates’ World, which suited our buccaneering spirit. Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! When in Miami, the band stayed at the Doral Hotel, which had a cocktail lounge nightclub in the basement. ⁣⁣
I got to hear Little Richard and his band in this club environment and boy were they good. ⁣⁣His songs pioneered rock’n’roll. With Elvis singing them, this just went under the radar during a racist period of time.

Little Richard passed earlier this year, a very sad loss.”
