Page went on to say that at the time he met Bonham, he was not the drummer he would become in Led Zeppelin; or somehow, he was meant to be ‘Bonzo’ of Led Zeppelin. Nor were John Paul Jones and Robert Plant the artists they were yearning to be. They were all good, but somehow the group synergy made the band form in a magical way, and all 4 musicians quickly grew together, revealing their true individual geniuses. Songs were written quickly and easily, and within a year, they were a phenomenal success.
Sure, it might have been divine intervention. In fact, I’m positive it was. I agree that the magic of Led Zeppelin is rare; but I think it happens all around us in lesser degrees and we may not even notice it.
Most importantly, Jimmy Page had a vision. He had been thinking of it before he joined the Yardbirds. He focused on it for a couple years. He knew what songs he wanted to do, and how he wanted them to sound. He could hear them in his head. He focused on that vision, and didn’t lose sight (or sound) of it.
I imagine he knew who he wanted to hire once he started his quest. He contacted them and they joined. It all fell into place. Or they magically appeared at the right time. It was almost as if they were all destined to meet, and somewhere, in another vortex, or time-space, Led Zeppelin always existed.
We could use this example with other bands, theater groups, creative collaborations or even businesses. Someone has the vision, or all the members have the same vision, and it takes form. If everyone is in sync with the creative forces, it works like magic. I’ll add that people on the same wavelength attract each other when everyone is on the same frequency.
Have you ever met someone by chance, and look back years later, and you can’t imagine not having them in your life?
We’re all on a path to excellence. Once we are in alignment with our dreams, everything falls into place.
