Jimmy Page says he almost was on Dave Grohl’s + John Paul Jones band

In an instagram post, Jimmy Page made a startling revelation, involving his former bandmate on Led Zeppelin, John Paul Jones and Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl. Page said he almost was part of their supergroup Them Crooked Vultures.


He said:

“During the post-O2 period, I had been playing new material with Jason Bonham and John Paul Jones at rehearsal rooms. I was asked to play with the Foo Fighters at Wembley. This was after the Led Zeppelin show at the O2 attended by Dave Grohl.”

“So, on this day in 2008, John Paul Jones and I played ‘Ramble On’ and Dave sang with Taylor Hawkins on drums. Then Taylor swapped drums with Dave and he sang ‘Rock and Roll’. Dave Grohl said “You guys should come to the States and record with us”. I didn’t hear anything more from Grohl, and John Paul Jones’ communications seemed to dim. The next I heard, they were promoting their new group.”
