Led Zeppelin’s legendary guitarist Jimmy Page posted a really rare video from 1998 and revealed an interesting ‘On This Day’ story with his followers.

As you might check out the caption of Jimmy below, he recalled how he and Robert Plant went in Katowice in Poland after the collapse of Berlin Wall.

Jimmy also revealed that they’ve met Poland mayor as he was a Rock N’ Roll fan, the mayor told him that they were hiding their albums because of the Soviet authorities at that time. He stated that if they were discovered they would go to jail.⠀

Here is what Jimmy wrote:

In 1998, Page and Plant played Katowice in Poland, nine years after the Berlin Wall came down. It had been said that the Mayor was a “Rock & Roll Mayor” and he would like to see us after the show.⠀

When I met him he began to explain how the music kept them going and the attitude of the Soviet authorities at that time, whereby a group of four friends would club the money together to buy a record from a clandestine source. It would cost one month’s pay and then the one who bought it would play it and hide it, then he would pass it onto one of the other friends who would play it and hide it etc, etc. If they were discovered they would go to jail.⠀

Well times had changed – Katowice had a rocking Mayor and had a serious enthusiasm for rock music. It was a memorable evening.
