Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin reveals long-standing rumors about Elvis Presley

The legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist, Jimmy Page, published a really rare photo of another icon, Elvis Presley, and revealed the story of how Led Zeppelin paid his tribute to Elvis Presley and G.I Blue.

Jimmy also shared the rumors about Elvis‘ presence in some shows in Frankfurt.

This is what he said:

“During the 1970 Led Zeppelin tour of Europe, sandwiched between Essen and Berlin, I played Frankfurt with Led Zeppelin with its close proximity to US military bases. The audience always had a strong showing of those servicemen and women.

Elvis Presley had been stationed at Friedberg whilst in the army and it’s rumoured that Elvis himself attended some shows in Frankfurt back in the day – it’s highly probable that we played ‘Frankfurt Special’ that evening in the rock ‘n’ roll medley during ‘Whole Lotta Love’ to pay tribute to both Elvis, Frankfurt, and G.I. Blues. If we didn’t play it that time, I think we played it every other time we played Frankfurt! 🇩🇪”

Elvis Presley’s official Instagram page also posted a new photo and wrote this:

“There are several unbelievable things about Elvis, but the most incredible is his staying power in a world where meteoric careers fade like shooting stars.” ☀️🎸 – “Newsweek,” August 11, 1969
