Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page‘s official Instagram account posted a photo as a part of the ‘On this day’ series and shared the details of a rarely-known coincidence related to his previous band The Yardbirds.

As you might remember, the iconic guitarist of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page initially earned success as a guitar player with his previous band The Yardbirds in the late 1960s. Page actually joined the band right after Eric Clapton left in 1965.

The Yardbirds was widely known for its inventive style combining blues and rhythm with rock music. The band was also famous for starting the careers of the three most iconic guitarists of all time, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck.

Recently, the official Instagram account of Jimmy Page posted another photo of the iconic musician as a part of the ‘On This Day’ series. As you will see in the photo below, Page was posing among the audience at The Oxford Union applauding him after a historical performance for an exclusive event.

On the caption of his post, Jimmy shared the story behind this frame which was apparently related to an interesting coincidence. The guitar legend stated that he was accompanying the Beat poet Royston Ellis while he was giving a speech at the venue in 2017. Page also mentioned the time he performed with The Yardbirds for the first time at the same exact place years ago.

Here’s what Jimmy Page stated in the caption of his latest post:

“On this day in 2017, I gave a talk at The Oxford Union.⁣

With a tradition of hosting debates and speakers since the 1820s, it was an honor to be invited and a thrill to be back – because the first time I visited The Union was when I was 16 or 17 years old.⁣

On that memorable occasion, the Beat poet Royston Ellis gave a talk and I was accompanying him on guitar for a couple of his poems, so it was very interesting to re-visit this historic institution after all of these years.⁣

This is also the venue where I first joined The Yardbirds.”
