According to RollingStone.com, LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page joined DONOVAN on stage last night (Friday, June 3) Royal Albert Hall in London, England to perform his classic “hired gun” solo from the British folk-rock legend’s 1965 hit “Sunshine Superman”. Page also sat in for another DONOVAN favorite, “Mellow Yellow”.
Check out video footage of the performance below.
“In 1965, Jimmy had just left THE YARDBIRDS and hadn’t started on ZEPPELIN yet,” said Donovan. “So we hired him to do a session at Abbey Road.”
“Though he’s known for his power guitar, Jimmy is a real folk aficionado,” added Donovan. Page agreed. “A lot of my songs were written on the acoustic guitar. And so much of the first album of LED ZEPPELIN was acoustic, too.”
