The legendary guitarist and the founder of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page shared a new photo on his official Instagram page to add yet another page to his iconic “On This Day” archive.

As you will read the story below, Jimmy Page shared the rare story of how he played one support spot whilst in Neil Christian and the Crusaders for Cliff and the Shadows at Edmonton Odeon.

You can read the story below.

“On this day in 1966, Time Drags By by Cliff Richard was released.
I had been booked to play harmonica on a session at EMI Studio Number Two and discovered that it was for Cliff Richard. The song had been written by the Shadows guitarists Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch, who were there with drummer Brian Bennett and Cliff. They were super gracious and encouraging and it was a pleasure to have worked with some of the UK music aristocracies.

This song was later to feature in the film Finders Keepers.
In 1959 I played one support spot whilst in Neil Christian and the Crusaders for Cliff and the Shadows at Edmonton Odeon. I was still at school and I couldn’t really talk to the other kids about this so I kept it to myself.
In 1981, in the same studio on the same day, I was overdubbing the orchestra on the Death Wish II project.”
