Led Zeppelin History – Oct 30

This is more “post-Led Zeppelin” history.

Today in 1988 Jimmy Page’s instrumental “Writes of Winter”, from his only solo album Outrider, was nominated for a Grammy (it didn’t win). It was unexpected and surprised even him: “Well lo and behold, never having had a Grammy nomination from anything before, ‘Writes Of Winter’ from the Outrider album was mysteriously nominated in the instrumental category today. I wasn’t going to hold my breath and it’s just as well I didn’t because I still wouldn’t have a Grammy, but hey – I got a nomination.”
