Members of Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and More Paid Tribute to Jimmy Page
The performance also featured contingents from Guns N' Roses, Cheap Trick, and more
During a benefit concert at Seattle’s Experience Music Project Museum last night — held in honor of Led Zeppelin pioneer and founder Jimmy Page — a seemingly endless stream of massive, iconic musicians joined forces in song. That lineup included Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell, Sean Kinney, and William DuVall, Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, and more.
Page himself, who was there to receive the EMP Founder Award, hopped onstage during the night’s closing number — appropriately Zep’s “Rock and Roll.” Other guests who performed during the show included Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen, Mad Season’s Barrett Martin, and Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers. Watch footage from the night (with one video shot by Chris Cornell’s daughter Lily) below.
