Led Zeppelin in Montreux
Page and Plant 2001
GOOD ROCKIN’ TONIGHT !!
The 2001 Montreux Jazz Festival featured a very special appearance by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. Performing during the Tribute to Sun Records show on July 7, 2001, their forty minute set celebrated their musical career.
Page made his first live appearance since injuring his back in September 2000. Both he and Robert were in excellent form. The event was quite extraordinary being their first live appearance together in several years, and their first in Montreux since Zeppelin’s October 1972 concert.
An assortment of classic cover songs, including Elvis Presley, Howlin’ Wolf and Sonny Burgess. The rare rockabilly-inspired Candy Store Rock, from Presence brought a huge response from the eager crowd. Unfortunately, the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis was to jam with them, but was forced to cancel his appearance due to illness.
It was not the usual “Page/Plant” backing band accompanying them onstage, which produced a fresh sound.
Ian Jennings, from the Big Town Playboys played stand-up "double bass" with Mike Watt on drums.
