Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page is being featured, along with up-and-coming blues-rock guitarist Gary Clark Junior, in a new ad campaign for fashion designer John Varvatos. A two-minute black-and-white clip featuring the two -- directed by Danny Clinch -- was posted Monday on the John Varvatos website and YouTube.
In it, footage of Clark playing his song "When My Train Pulls In" alone in a hall is interspersed with shots of the white-haired Page riding through London in a taxi, getting out and walking through the door of the Rivoli Ballroom, where Clark is presumably playing.

Jimmy Page has posted another performance video on his website. This one shows him jamming with Aerosmith on "Train Kept-A Rollin'," a song he recorded as a member of The Yardbirds. The collaboration happened on August 20th, 1990 at the Marquee Club in London.
Page says, "This was the third location of this famous blues and rock club, now in Charing Cross Road. The previous location, having been in Wardour Street (where I played with The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin) and the original site, being in Oxford Street (where I’d been playing in the interval band on the Thursday blues night). So actually, I got a chance to play all the Marquee locations, but the interior of the Charing Cross Road location appeared to faithfully replicate the Wardour Street site with the cigarette- and beer-stained carpets and people passed out on the floor!"
In addition to "Train Kept-A Rollin'," Page ...
