Page, who co-wrote the famous song Stairway to Heaven with singer Robert Plant, stayed at old Havana´s Hotel Saratoga, which has housed other international figures of rock and roll.
Led Zeppelin has inspired many Cuban bands and has its own following on the island. After learning Page was visiting, a number of local musicians tried to meet him.
Musicians from the local band Tesis de Menta, a flagship of rock in Cuba, and well-known radio host and vocalist Juan Camacho, fulfilled their "dream" of meeting and talking with Page last Saturday.
After being mobbed in the hotel lobby, Page, dressed in shorts and a black T-shirt, talked for almost 20 minutes with the Cuban musicians about different aspects of his career.
He was interested in the work of the theatre Maxim Rock, headquarters of the Cuban Rock Agency, and the influence of Led Zeppelin on the local scene.
Tesis de Menta singer Beatrix Lopez told Prensa Latina that Page, "with a youthful spirit" and "very strong," talked about his friendship with the British guitarist Jeff Beck, who was part of the celebrated band The Yardbirds in the 1960s.
He passionately praised the work of the Belgian singer with Arab roots Natasha Atlas, considered a cult figure in the European underground scene.
Perdomo, leader of the band Tesis de Menta, added that the former Led Zeppelin guitarist, whose solo for Stairway to Heaven was selected the best in history by Rolling Stone magazine, expressed interest in Cuban rock and the different genres on the island.
Page founded Led Zeppelin in 1968 in 1968 with Plant – who incidentally visited Cuba some years ago – bassist John Paul Jones, and drummer the late John Bonham. The band, one of the most influential of all times, separated in 1980. Since then, members of the group have reunited only on special occasions.
Their last reunion was in 2007 in a London stadium, where they performed a concert in honor of the man who discovered Led Zeppelin and founded Atlantic Records, Turkish-born Ahmet Ertegun (1923-2006).
After that show, rumors circulated about their possible return to the stage, but for now, the band has not reunited. Members of the cult to Led Zeppelin all over the world, however, continue to wait hopefully for that possibility.
