Jimmy Page Shares Thoughts On Poorly Reviewed 1971 Led Zeppelin Concert

Jimmy Page recently shared on social media his thoughts on a poorly reviewed 1971 concert that Led Zeppelin played in Berkeley, California.

"On this day in 1971, I played with @ledzeppelin at the Berkeley Community Theatre and the seated, uni-like audience seemed pretty non-plussed. It wasn't a very good communion that night," the legendary guitarist said on Instagram and Facebook.

He cited a number of possible reasons for the poor attitude of the audience.

Page pointed out the negative press coverage that the band had continually received from the locally-based Rolling Stone as one of the reasons.

Maybe the audience were "sitting in the remnants of the vibrant San Francisco music scene they had witnessed over the last 5 years," Page added.

"They weren't receptive to new music we played - material from the unreleased Led Zeppelin IV," according to him. Page also guessed that the audience was "heavily stoned."

The post was accompanied by a group photo showing all four members of the English rock band - Page, vocalist Robert Plant, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham.
