Report: Jimmy Page defends Olympics performance with Leona Lewis…

Jimmy Page is dissapointed with the negative criticism he received from critics and music fans of his performance with Leona Lewis at the Beijing Olympics Closing Ceremony. Jimmy Page defended it saying that it was an honour for him and Leona to be there performing together, and he says they did a good job performing the Led Zeppelin song “Whole Lotta Love”. Jimmy is proud of the performance and says people need to be less cynical.

I’ll have to agree with Page on this one. I heard audio tracks of the performance in youtube and it wasn’t all that bad.

The only reason I can think of why people didn’t like that performance is because people didn’t like the idea of a pop mainstream star performing with a legendary rock god. Everyone was probably expecting Robert Plant to sing with Jimmy Page at the Olympics. While I’m sure the Beijing Olympics asked for a Plant & Page duo for return, I’m positive that Robert Plant himself turned it down. That is probably the reason Page got Leona Lewis instead.

Keep in mind that Jimmy Page collaborated with almost every famous musician you can think of from Puff Daddy to the Black Crowes.

I mean, christ, he’s fuckin’ Jimmy Page, he can perform with who ever he wants. He doesn’t care if he plays guitar for Michael Jackson or even Ricky Martin or Usher. This man will play guitar for anybody. He just wants to play guitar no matter who he is playing with. It’s not always going to be with Led Zeppelin or Robert Plant, get over it people.

  1. I didn’t think it was bad either. This Leona Lewis is a hottie. Jimmy Page looks like an old woman these days.
