VIDEO: Jimmy Page performs Led Zeppelin classic in Seattle

Jimmy Page performed the Led Zeppelin classic “Rock And Roll” with an all-star lineup of musicians in Seattle on Thursday.

Rolling Stone reports Page was on hand at the Experience Music Project to receive a Founder’s Award and, despite assurances that he would not play, the guitarist joined a cast of fellow rockers for the final song of the evening.

Page hopped on stage to deliver the Zeppelin tune alongside vocalists Paul Rodgers, William DuVall of Alice In Chains and Moke’s John Hogg, eight guitarists including Soundgarden's Kim Thayil, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and EMP founder and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, bassists Duff McKagan and Tesla’s Brian Wheat and former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin.

In addition to Page’s honor, the benefit event was a fund-raiser for the Seattle museum's youth-arts education efforts.

The evening featured a lineup of guests performing tunes from Page’s career, including former Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson and Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic.

Page and Led Zeppelin wrapped up a year-long reissues series of their complete studio album catalog in July with the release of expended versions of 1976’s “Presence”, 1979’s “In Through The Out Door” and 1982’s “Coda.”

The “Rock And Roll” performance starts at 4:40 in the video below.
