I don’t know if I’ll watch this or not, I’ll be in San Diego around that time on Aug. 24th. I will try to watch it at my brother’s apartment in San Diego if I’m not out doing fun stuff, if I don’t watch this closing ceremony at all, I’m sure the Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis performance will be all over youtube anyways.

Looking forward to seeing this.

Report: Jimmy Page interview at Rollingstone.com…

Rollingstone.com has a nice interview with Jimmy Page. My hero and inspiration in guitar playing who made me want to play music to begin with. As usual, Rollingstone asks musicians stupid questions to the musicians. While Rollingstone is a music magazine it is not aimed at musicians (like Guitar World, Guitar Player, etc.) Rollingstone is a music magazine aimed to the non-musicians, the regular music listeners.

Page give out the secrets where the energy and the tight playing in Led Zeppelin, he also explains how he inspired to bow an electric guitar.

That’s where all the tight and energetic playing comes from in my music, it’s because I listen to too much Led Zeppelin. While I listen to a lot of music out there, Led Zeppelin is everything to me.
