Is that you think of your onstage persona? The black witch?

Oh yes, I’m very witchy onstage, that’s how everyone thinks of me. I have sparkles round my eyes that look like tears… it’s really fun. I’ve got my top hat, I do tap, I love performing. If I’d have been born 50 years ago, I’d have definitely been in Vaudeville.”

Rumours Tour, Berkeley Community Theater, 1977.

Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Belfast, 1971.

This March 5 show debuted 4 songs that would appear on Led Zeppelin IV later that year: “Stairway to Heaven”, “Black Dog”, “Rock and Roll”, and “Going to California”.

And maybe it’s me having grown up in a Yiddish neighborhood in Brooklyn, but Jimmy’s hat, beard, and curled forelock looking very Orthodox to me, in a good way.
