Jimmy Page On Stage '85

Chris Welch, Creem, April 1985

A GREEN PYRAMID of laser light forms around the figure in white. A violin bow is held aloft and then swishes wand-like across the guitar, its strings howling in protest. It is the moment rock fans around the world have been awaiting. An emotional, historic moment, that marks the return to the rock battlefields of one of its most heroic figures...Jimmy Page.
