The History of Jimmy Page
The Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus was filmed over 18 hours on December 11th and 12th, 1968. Featuring The Rolling Stones, The Who and a Supergroup called Dirty Mac featuring Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell and John Lennon amongst others it was due to be shown by the BBC, but Mick Jagger held it back as he was unhappy with their performance. Tragically it would also be the last time Brian Jones would perform with The Rolling Stones, and died in his swimming pool little more that 6 months later.
On October 2nd, 1964 The Kinks released their first album “You Really Got Me“. The title track, “You Really Got Me” was the result of a genius riff and the sound created by main song writer Ray Davies‘ brother, Dave Davies, slashing the cone in his amp to create one of the most influential songs of all time. Add to this appearances as session musicians of Jimmy Page and Jon Lord and you have an album of note to music fans.
