Paging Dr. Page

Top this, YT treasure-hunters: a video of Jimmy Page, at the age of 14, playing in a skiffle band! (Link courtesy Metafilter)

At around 2 minutes into the video (2:15, I think), the kid introduces himself as "James Page" and expresses his interest in doing "biological research" and admits to not having the brains to be a doctor.

A *lousy* rendition of "Cotton Fields" can be seen and heard in the second half of the video, with Little James Page whistling in harmony.

This kid would go on to play "Black Dog"?

Look here, I too was in a band that played a *lousy* cover of "Cotton Fields" and I too did not have the brains to be a doctor....never mind, here's the video.

Great video. I saw it a few months ago, and remember wondering if I should alert you to its existence or simply wait and allow God's Plan to work itself out. :)

So when He is not busy playing dice, He is busy drawing up YT playlists? :))

And also making sure that right after I wrote that comment, Black Dog should be showing on "The Tube" (a 24 hour music video channel we get over-the-air in Philly). Duuuuuude!

Hilarious! I suppose next we shall have YT videos featuring Mozart as three month old foetus, playing the Jew's harp.

WFS: There, even HE likes Led Zeppelin.

Falstaff: Or "Ride of the Valkyries", performed by Papa Wagner's sperm?
