The Firm

Long associated with Paul Rodgers (lead singer with Swan Song signing Bad Company), Jimmy Page bounced back from a recent drug-possession arrest by announcing that his first band venture since Led Zeppelin’s split would be The Firm with singer Paul Rodgers. Page and Rodgers had first collaborated on the ARMS tour the previous year, giving them a taste for further working together. The two were joined by bassist Tony Franklin and Uriah Heep drummer Chris Slade.

The Honeydrippers: Volume One

A supergroup of sorts, The Honeydrippers saw Page and Plant back in the studio together for the first time since their last Led Zeppelin recording sessions. Significantly, the group also saw Page and Jeff Beck playing together for the first time since they sparred in The Yardbirds. With the legendary Nile Rodgers of Chic producing, along with Page and Plant, The Honeydrippers: Volume One was a five-track EP of standards covers culled from the studio sessions.
