"In the hotel room next to mine, Jimmy and Jackie were having a really hot romance. He played on almost all my sessions the 60s, but he was very dull in those days. This was before he went away and became interesting. I guess what he was doing in that hotel room was getting interesting. Tony Calder said to them, ‘As soon as you two are finished in that room fucking each other’s brains out, why don’t you write Marianne a song as well" - Marianne Faithfull
"… The call went out and we found out that my session was sheduled for when he was in art school, so we would have to wait for him to get out of school. I said, ‘He’d better be really good.’ I played Jimmy the songs. He listened and played them back so perfectly, with so much soul and technique, that I could tell instantly what a brilliant artist he was. He could play anything, even at his young age."
"Even than, he was spectacular. He wanted to split from the music world because he was getting disillusioned. Jimmy wanted to go to Cornwall or the Channel Islands and sell pottery. He couldn`t stand the business, the strain and I couldn`t stand his dream of quietness so we split, but I guess he`s changed a lot since then."
"We got together afterwards (…) she said `I`ve got a copy of Bob Dylan`s new album if you`d like to hear it` and I said `Would I like to hear it?" - Jimmy Page
