hey look, it's Jimmy Page! quick, grab that Who poster we have!!

5555 that's pretty funny...let us know when Pete and Roger are in town :)

The Who posters, signed by Roger Daltrey, was one of the auction items at Jesters Care4Kids party Night which went for Baht 35,000 for the two of them. Jimmy also offered to sign the poster if the bidder so wished., which he did. Jimmy also signed a Jesters T-shirt which went for Baht15,000 and of course his DVD "It Might get Loud" with The Edge and Jack White which went for Baht 15,000. This was only part of 54 items auctioned on the night and I am certain that with Jimmy Page being there and personally signing autographs made the night better for the Care4Kids - remember this all was for Charity.

Agree with you Aussie chick, I have never meet him but several of my friends have and say he is a really nice guy. I think he likes to come here because he likes the atmosphere and he can blend in with all the old people in town! I am not sure if he plays in the blues factory everynight as somebody would of mentioned it before but maybe I am wrong.

I've never met him and never seen him in the Blues Factory, Len however does come in quite a lot.

By all accounts Jimmy Page is a very nice down to earth guy, I've heard this off of several people and I also hope to meet him one day.

I saw him in Bangkok last night, walking into Silom Soi 4.

Some one yelled out JIMMY and he turned around and dished them up a right expletive laden serve.

Had my Les Paul on me and wanted to go after him and ask him to sign it but decided against it given that he obviously wanted his privacy.......

hey flyingfox - not gonna tell us you realised your mistake? I know all old white guys with white hair look alike :o

Pattayapope - yes, he is a gentleman, and very down to earth, and I am really pleased I got to meet him (and had my photo taken with him)

Who gives a shit,

really??

just a man.....that needs to sit down to take a sh1t like the rest of us.....never been impressed by notoriety.......so what

First, let me say to a later poster, JP is wealthy and lives in a mansion, etc. He does not need $$$$$

Second, to Rizla, I too am not impressed by "notoriety." I am, however, impressed with genuine accomplishment.

I think we can agree, like him or not, JP accomplished things 99.9% of guitarists will never accomplish.

JP is one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

JP was INNOVATIVE. It was amazing to see him do (in the 70s) things nobody had ever done before.

JP was also a skilled songwriter. I believe he wrote almost all of the timeless song, Stairway to Heaven.

Yes, he has notoriety. But he earned it!

I think people should respect what he did, notoriety or not.

Agreed.:)

Regarding Blues Factory Lam Morrison told me that JP came into the bar on Wednesday to see him play, unfortunately Lam was not in and came back to work last night. Whether this is true or not I don't know but I for one would be honoured if Jimmy Page came into the Blues Factory to watch my bands.

You trying to Compare Lam Morrison with Jimmy Page ? huh.gif

I saw lam at your club a few years ago, he was lazy and looked totally bored, I only went there once as I was sitting there a girl came up and offered shooters, I'd already bought many drinks, I took 2 for me and my gf without thinking about it, I thought it was a nice touch for good customers, , then I got the extortionate bill, of course no mention of this when it looks like shes giving shooters around to customers for free, no mention of paying when shes walking round with a tray of glasses and a bottle, total rip off.

I paid, left the drinks and never went back, even the Thai guys that work the Hong Nam said it was wrong, ruined my night.

Update 9/26:

JP has come back to Pattaya! It seems he is temporarily residing at Nova Park on Soi AR as he's friends with the owner.

He played for 90 minutes at Blues Factory last night with Lam Morrison and took requests from the small audience throughout. I personally requested "Black Dog" and "Heartbreaker" which were amazingly played. Those solos blew my mind...

Around 10am this morning, I'm going to meet him at Jameson's on soi AR for breakfast. Come join us and then back to Blues Factory tonight for his last show.

you know it's going to be a rant when they start with "I only went there once..."

oh dear, you really are a silly man if you thought the shooters were comped in any bar. they only do that in Vegas.

off you go and chase some balloons now.
