Jimmy Page Rocks The Beijing Olympics Closing Ceremony!

Forget Led Zeppelin’s O2 gig last year…this was probably Jimmy Page’s biggest gig ever!

Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis performing "Whole Lotta Love"...legendary!

Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis performing

Unfortunately for Zep fans, the Guitar God didn’t perform with his famous band mates, but with Pop Idol popstar Fiona Lewis, in a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s classic ‘Whole Lotta Love’. The duo, performing on a stage formed at the top of a red double-decker bus, was then joined by Dave Beckham, who kicked a ball to the surrounding crowd.

This bizarre performance was one of the highlights of the closing ceremony for the Beijing 2008 Olympics.

With rumours of a full Led Zeppelin reunion tour still unconfirmed, it was a rare opportunity to see good old Jimmy Page rocking out!

    She lacked Robert’s vocal sting, but details-shmetails.
