After being a member of the Yardbirds, former lead guitarist of a small British quartet known as Led Zeppelin. Prior to that, Jimmy was a studio musician who worked on some Rolling Stones demos, including a second version of Heart of Stone (which later surfaced on the METAMORPHOSIS album) and was also employed as house producer and arranger of Andrew Oldham’s Immediate Records, at the time releasing the Blues Anytime albums (Vol. 1 and 2), including four songs featuring him (plus Mick Jagger on harmonica, Eric Clapton on guitar, Stu on piano, Bill Wyman on bass and Chris Winters on drums) in three songs: West Coast Idea, Draggin’ My Tail and Choker.
He also played lead guitar on Brian’s soundtrack album for A Degree of Murder. In 1965, the Stones asked Page to join the band, planning to throw Brian out, but Page declined. In early 1975, Page jammed in the studio with Keith, recording a song called Scarlet with Rick Grech on bass, though it was highly unlikely that in the “Great Guitarists Hunt,” Page would leave the then biggest band in the world—even for the Stones. Scarlet was finally released in 2020 as part of the expanded edition of Goats Heads Soup. Jimmy also played in the (Bill Wyman’s band) Willie and the Poor Boys album (1985) and the A.R.M.S. concert tour, later on in the same year taking part of the Stones’ Dirty Work recording sessions, with a guitar solo on One Hit (To the Body).
