Why is it that when Jimmy is in deep concentration, playing like crazy,
eyes closed, dripping wet with sweat, he starts drooling all over himself
and the stage? I mean he really looks like he's going to die or
something. He starts literally blowing spit and drool everywhere. Any
clues?

I think this subject was brought up before. Anyway, Page had jaw
problems back in the 80's that required surgery. They wired his jaw or
something like that. So now I guess he has trouble with drool. Either
that or he just thinks it looks cool. ;o)

Now I'm not saying this definately is it,
BUT ... I'VE HEARD when large amounts of c-c-c-cocaine
are snorted (which sometimes happens in a rock 'n' roll
environmnet) the excess can reach the mouth (or be rubbed
manually onto the gums) causing a numbness in the mouth
much like the kind you get when the dentist shoots your
mouth up with novocaine (the legal cousin of cocaine),
which can lead one to not being able to control his/her
drool.

I believe that drool can also be a sign of increased parasympathetic
nervous stimulation. It increases in preparation to eat. Drool may also
increase just prior to orgasm. Anyway, I guess I'm saying that Jimmy may
be really getting into his music in such a way that he is getting this
basic physiologic response, similar to the pleasure experienced with
eating or sex.

Don't worry! This may often happen when clenching your teeth and keeping
your mouth shut for a longer period of time - some people have also a
larger production of saliva than others. I was standing just in front of
Mr. Page for a couple of hours during a consert last summer, so I
understand what you mean. Actually I thought Mr.Page looked healthier
than he appeard to be when younger (except that he seemed to have a
slight touch of a cold). Enjoy his/their music !!!

He has some jaw problems or something like that due to his heroin use.

Is there any substantiation for this?

I saw Page in 1988 and he didn't drool as far as I know.

I did hear that he had surgery in the 1980's and that's a major part of
it. I also heard that it was because of the amount of heroin that he did
in the 1970's. But who cares, it just proves how much he's into his music.
I don't know about you but a man that has his eyes closed, concentrating,
dripping with sweat and drooling must be so far into his music that he
can't even be compared to.

Page has a severe deviated septum, he has enormous problems breathing through his nose, so he uses his mouth, when he is playing or concentrating, the drool comes out. assuming.

Page was drooling from thinking about all that young gash. ehe -D, "If I played guitar, I'd be Jimmy Page. All the girlies I like are underage." - BEASTIE BOYS (umpteenth sweet, Jewish NYers)

I saw the Firm in Denver and we brought binoculars and I witnessed this too. He had this long drool eventually reaching the stage. It was like he was in a trance. He was absolutely playing phenomenal guitar, it was AMAZING! I have mentioned the drool to others and no one seems to believe me. I’m glad I’m not the only one to witness this.
