Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton Humbled by The Queen

Published: 2005-03-02
Most people (if not all) know who Led Zeppelin or Eric Clapton is to rock 'n' roll, but the Queen of England, managing the issues of the world obviously had more important things to occupy her mind. This is why most were shocked (especially the rocker's agents we gather) when the Queen drew a blank when being presented to the likes of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page when the Queen hosted a reception for those in the music industry at Buckingham Palace.

Reports say that Clapton introduced himself by name to the Queen's response, "Have you been playing a long time?" Clapton went on to say, "It must be 45 years now." The Queen also asked Jimmy Page, "Are you a guitarist too?" Clapton appeared refreshed at the Queen's response when he told reporters that he wouldn't expect her to know who the musicians were. Geri Halliwell, Jamie Cullum, and Jools Holland were also in attendance.
