|Jimmy Page (Photo: unknown)|
To rock musicians at the time, Jimmy Page was a guitar god. Actually, he was more than that. Yes, Jimmy Page could play, but he was also a f**king enigma, which was reflected in his rumored lifestyle: he (allegedly) lived in a dark, haunted manor house formerly owned by Aleister Crowley. He was mystical and mysterious and dangerous-but-charming enough to flirt with the occult without seeming scary or even the slightest bit strange. He was known to sport a walking stick and occasionally even wore a cape--without looking like jumpsuit-era Elvis.
Never mind that we didn’t know which Pantene* Jimmy Page smelled like (which led to much discussion and unscrewing and sniffing of gold-capped bottles in the shampoo aisle of the local Walgreen’s among friends). But dammit, we had to have it! Goodbye Vidal (Sassoon), hellooooooo Jimmy! All at a drugstore price.
