In a recent Instagram post, guitar legend Jimmy Page has shared an untold story of how he paid his respect to rock n’ roll star Elvis Presley in 1998.

He also mentioned about how Elvis Presley’s vision changed the world.  Here’s what he wrote:

“On this day in 1998, I played at Tupelo, where Elvis was born and raised, when there were no local attractions apart from the cotton fields or getting to Memphis.

When Elvis grew up it must have been pretty bleak but the white and black picked the cotton side by side and the local indigenous music provided the soundtrack to this tough environment and it took the visionary genius of Elvis to blend those musical sources and change the world. 🔊John Lee Hooker’s sonic ambience to the region; ‘Tupelo’ recorded in 1960.”

A week ago, he remembered another music legend B.B. King and wrote:

“On this day in 2004, I presented B.B. King with the Polar Music Prize. It was an honour to be invited to be a part of this, as B.B. King was a figure who inspired generations of musicians, from his contemporaries to the present day.

Also a recipient of the music prize that day was György Ligeti – the avant garde classical composer whose Lux Aeterna was featured in the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey'”
