The legendary guitarist and Led Zeppelin’s iconic member, Jimmy Page posted a new photo on his Instagram to add yet another part to his iconic ‘On This Day’ archive.

On the caption, Jimmy Page shared the story of how Led Zeppelin concert went really bad, possibly because the band members were stoned that night.

Here is what Jimmy Page wrote:

“On this day in 1971, I played with Led Zeppelin at the Berkeley Community Theatre and the seated, uni-like audience seemed pretty non-plussed. It wasn’t a very good communion that night. ⁣

Maybe that evening they: a) were contaminated by the negative press we had continually received from the locally-based Rolling Stone; b) were sitting in the remnants of the vibrant San Francisco music scene they had witnessed over the last 5 years; c) weren’t receptive to new music we played – material from the unreleased Led Zeppelin IV; d) were heavily stoned, or; e) all of the above!
