As you might know, Led Zeppelin icon Jimmy Page has been using his Instagram account often to share the stories from his music career. Page usually posts photos of himself or Led Zeppelin performing in different countries around the world and shares the story behind that specific date using the headline ‘On This Day.’

However, recently, Jimmy posted a picture of himself on Instagram taken while he was enjoying his day off and reading a newspaper. On the caption of his post, Page made fun of his long-going tradition of sharing stories from his music career and mentioned this time he was simply having ‘a day off.’

On this day… I had a day off 😴💤 😅

Two days ago, Jimmy Page posted a photo of himself and Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant on Instagram while performing in Marrakech on August 11, 1994. On the caption of his post, Jimmy shared the story behind their performance and mentioned what an unforgettable experience they had ‘on that day’ in 1994.

Here’s what Page stated on the caption of his post:

On this day in 1994, Robert Plant and I appeared in the Jemaa el-Fnaa, Marrakech.

This was a fascinating experience to be playing what indeed was a medieval market. Robert and I performed a song entitled ‘Yalla’, later to be re-titled ‘The Truth Explodes’ and it was performed with a percussion loop that had been originally supplied to Robert by Martin Massonier. However, the loop was now slowed down in tempo and had my electric guitar riff and Robert’s vocals ricocheting through the stalls, the walls, and the souk.

The audience appeared quite shocked at this spectacle and I remember at one point one of the PA speakers disappearing off into the audience, probably to be sold around the corner, and had to be hastily retrieved!⁣

This had been such a profound experience being able to play music in a place that I had visited and enjoyed many times in the past and appreciated the musicians, acrobats, readers and writers of letters, astrologers, snake charmers, storytellers, jugglers and chefs of fine food, the fumes of which add to the ambiance of this magical place.⁣”
