Very Cool - 'great to see Neil and Jimmy w/their Les Pauls making it happen.

That said, after watching Derek on Conan the other night...just stand there, as always, and simply KILL IT w/his playing....Jimmy Page looks almost comical with his antics as he plays. Don't get me wrong, I love Jimmy/Zep/Neil/etc...just sayin'.

I can take either one, Standing or jumping around. It's up to the player.

I would rather here old school Page than Derek.

I swear I'm not trying to pick on ya here Dirt, but this sounds like a complete clusterf#ck to me. Holy sh!t, what a mess. Do you think they were all drunk? Just a mess.

Keep the vids coming though. I love discovering old stuff I've never heard. We're just not on the same page today.

I remember watching this live or whenever MTV had it on...and thinking, I don't think Jimmy and Robert were quite ready for Neil Young that night. His infectiousness rubbed off a bit on Jimmy in my opinion...

Some of the looks Page and Plant gave each other were priceless as they watched ole Neil do his hippy, clomp stomping, absolutely go wild guitar playing...which I love by the way....I think Page/Plant were quite amused by Neil.

This is just my opinion.

I'm sure you all saw Neil that one time on SNL doing 'Rockin' in the Free World' ... priceless performance.

Just Neil being Neil. If he wasn't a musician he'd be John Henry. Relentless, blue collar - that's Neil

I love it, you can tell Robert and were Jimmy tripping out...the way they kept smiling.

Neil was flat out getting into it ,in his own way.

Neil is awesome.

LZ and Neil have always had kind of a mutal admiration going.

P&P have always dug the West Coast rock and roll of Mopy Grape and the Buffalo Springfield among others. If you check out the awesome LZ dvd, during the Royal Albert Hall part (January 1970), during How Many More Times, Plant sings a line or two of "Down By The River" during the instrumental section, so clearly Plant had listened to the album, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. Also at the end of the RAH show, check out the axe Page is using, Black Les Paul with a Bigsby tremelo, just like Neil's guitar, Old Black.

I think right around the time of this video, Mirrorball, NY's project with Pearl Jam had been kicking around (or maybe before) NY namechecks Jimmy Page during the tune "Downtown".

This from the book Skydog? Just curious. Course I've heard Neil slammed as the King of the E string leads, but I love his music myself.

NO. It's from an interview reprinted in, I think, Guitar World.

Just checked out the video and all I can say is Wow. There were parts of the video that I loved. However, there were parts that were just a mess. Don't get me wrong I love both Zeppelin and Neil and always will but this could have been better.

Keep posting the videos...I have seen some real gems (and interesting things) because of this forum.

A bit of history was made on the evening that Neil Young was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on January 13, 1995. After the induction ceremony, Young joined Led Zeppelin onstage for an all out guitar duel with Jimmy Page. Performing a 10 minute "When The Levee's Gonna Break", Page and Young traded licks in what turned out to be a remarkable moment in TV rock.

Plant segues into the Buffalo Springfield classic "For What It's Worth" at one point. Not to be outdone, Robert Plant picked up a guitar and began to jam with the guitar greats and seemed to be having the time of his life hopping and twirling about.

At one point, after seemingly endless jamming and soloing between the two guitar legends, a clearly exhausted Jimmy Page drops his hands from his guitar as if to concede defeat by Young. At the conclusion of the song, Page and Plant hugged Young as they left the stage. Just before the camera cuts, one can see Page patting Neil's amplifier as if to say, "You've got a hell of a sound from your equipment."

Later that year, Neil Young wrote the song "Downtown" (on the "Mirror Ball" album) about that historic night in New York City. From the lyrics "Downtown":

Jimi's playin' in the back room
Led Zeppelin on stage
There's a mirror ball twirlin'
And a note from Page
Like a water-washed diamond
In a river of sin
Goin' down like a whirlpool
When you get sucked in
Downtown
Let's go downtown

In Jimmy McDonough's biography of Neil Young "Shakey", Neil said of Page's work: "I'm a hack compared to him. He can really play." No word yet on what Robert Plant and Jimmy Page thought of the night.

Finally, on Led Zeppelin's 2004 Double DVD it is interesting to note Robert Plant's spontaneous incorporation of a few lines from Neil Young's 'Down by the River' and 'On the Way Home' during the epic song 'How Many More Times.'
Jimi Hendrix and Neil Young

No, I was just saying I disagreed with Duane. I love Neil's old raw and ragged sound.

I would have no reason to doubt you word. and I don't.

Ok, maybe that was a little rough around the edges, but it was still great to watch those dudes getting into it. Plant on guitar was surprising.

Neil is awesome Kenny and he needs to pay us a visit soon. Nice working Ms Williams into the thread too; I actually saw the Plasmatics once, in G'ville FL!

I've seen this vid probably a dozen or so times over the years, and I feel like I'm left out of some sort of practical joke about them being serious. That is just absolutely terrible. And I'm a huge Zep/Pagey fan, but that sounds worse than a high school garage band. Never understood it. And that article quoted earlier, as if it were some type of competition or something (notwithstanding), but was the author watching the video with the sound on mute or something? Talking about some guitar duel or something, as if either of them won. More like they both shot themselves. Awful. If that's what a 2009 Zep reunion were to sound like, then thank god Plant had the sense to say no. Although I think well-rehearsed they would sound much much better than that. The O2 show sounded pretty good, but I think they would've sounded even better had they rehearsed for a tour, with several nights under their belt. It would've been as good or better than the mid-90s "UnLedded" thing. But this RnR HoF clip is terrible. Much worse than a heroin drugged out Page at Live Aid.

Geez-a-lou....was that at the Halloween Fest (or whatever they called it) at the Bandshell, I believe it was 1980?

Sheesh, don't remember much about the show, other than there were a lot of really f*cked up people at that show, which is saying something in Gainesville. I think they actually toned down the whole Halloween Fest after that particular one.

Yeah, the haloween ball, out in a big field, went down I thought in fall '81, or '82, can't recall which. Some guy from SNL, Charles Rocket, played too, not so well. It was pretty crazy for sure!
