Jimmy Page and Brian May with members of Iron Maiden and Bad News

Led Zeppelin legend Jimmy Page has posted an amusing anecdote regarding the unlikely moment he became a bonus guitarist for British comedy heavy metal band, Bad News – alongside none other than fellow guitar god and Queen icon, Brian May!

Two days ago, Page posted a photo taken backstage at the Hammersmith Odeon (now Apollo) in London on November 9, 1986, featuring himself alongside May, Bad News members Vim Fuego (played by Adrian Edmonson), Den Dennis (Nigel Planer), Colin Grigson (Rik Mayall) and Spider “Eight-Legs” Webb (Peter Richardson), and Iron Maiden members Bruce Dickinson, Steve Harris, Adrian Smith and Dave Murray. Bad News – a fictional band spawned by Channel 4’s hallmark 80s alternative comedy show The Comic Strip Presents… – were supporting Maiden at the Odeon that night, and delighted fans by bringing out Page and May for a guitar dual with Bad News frontman and lead guitarist Fuego
