One of the greatest guitarists of all time, Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin, is sharing untold stories via his official Instagram account and we can say that it’s a priceless archive for everyone who interests rock and Led Zep history.

Today, Jimmy wrote another memorial from his prime time and revealed a special jam he had with legendary bass player Jaco Pastorius and one of the iconic drummers of AC/DC, Chris Slade.

In the letter, Jimmy mentioned what a monster of a player Jaco Pastorius was and also revealed how Chris joined them for a special jam. Here’s the story:

“On this day in 1985, I went to see Jaco Pastorius at The Lone Star Café in New York. ⁣

Jaco was accompanied by a drummer he’d accessed from The Village Voice Musician’s Column. Needless to say, this drummer from the small ads was having a bit of a problem keeping up with the powerhouse Jaco Pastorius, who was illustrating the complete textbook to the various approaches of the electric bass.⁣

Jaco invited me up and I had a jam with him but more importantly, Chris Slade, The Firm’s drummer also got up to jam, relegating the current drummer to a table in the club. After about four numbers, I returned to our table to witness a tremendous synergy and understanding of Jaco’s playing from Chris who remained for the rest of the set. That night I got to understand what an experienced and passionate drummer Chris Slade could be.⁣

And also what a monster of a player Jaco Pastorius was.”

A fan named Ognizom commented:

“Heck yeah! Chris Slade is awesome! Especially with his work in AC/DC on the Razor’s Edge.”

Another fan named PocketSund wrote:

“It’s great to read these accounts of Jimmy’s experiences. He was the reason I picked up and learned guitar. I great craftsman on the ax, for sure!”
