Jeff Buckley and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page cried when they met one another for the first time, it has been claimed. Former Fishbone member Chris Dowd explains that the pair were so in awe of each other that their first meeting was an emotional affair. Speaking to Uncut, Dowd says: “Jeff told me they cried. They actually cried when they met each other. Jimmy heard himself in Jeff, and Jeff was meeting his idol. Jimmy Page was the godfather of Jeff’s music. A lot of people thought Tim [Buckley] was the influence on Jeff, but it was really Zeppelin.
