Myles Kennedy recalls when he ended up in the studio with Led Zeppelin

During a new episode of Talkin’ Rock with Meltdown, Myles Kennedy he recalled when he played in the recording studio with the Led Zeppelin. Kennedy introduced the anecdote by explaining how he met Jason Bonham during the 2001 film directed by Stephen Herek “Rock Star”: “I’ll never forget it.

We were rehearsing my scene for “Rock Star.” Jason Bonham and Mark Wahlberg were there. We took a little break and I sat down and Jason was there and we started talking. I said, ‘I just want you to know how much your dad’s legacy means to me.’ That’s the main reason why we all play music.’”

Years later Kennedy was contacted by Jason Bonham: “He’s really proud of his dad’s legacy and he really appreciated it. About seven years later, I get this text out of the blue. It’s Jason, I was on tour with Alter Bridge. We had just played one of the German festivals, it was like June, and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s got a friend who wants tickets or something to a festival.’”

Then Myles Kennedy He tells how Jason invited him to play instead: “The bus stops, we take a break and I call him. He was like, ‘Hey man, I’ve got a huge favor.’ I was like, ‘Okay.’ He was like, ‘I’m in London and I’m playing with some friends, do you want to come over this weekend and play some songs.’ And I was like, ‘Who are your friends? Yeah, okay, fine.'”

In the end Myles Kennedy explain how he felt when he arrived Jimmy Page: “I’ll never forget it. I can still see it all so vividly. It was amazing and the other thing was John Paul Jones. Because when I got to that little studio. It wasn’t like a full recording studio, if I remember correctly. It was kind of a rehearsal studio and I just remember walking in after Jason took us there and I heard someone playing the piano really cool somewhere. I actually thought it was a record and I thought, ‘That almost sounds like Bill Evans or some jazz thing.’ Then I walk into this room and there’s John Paul Jones on the piano and he stands up and he’s just so nice.”
