Jimmy Page at the Rivoli

Back in November 2012, there was a bit of a flurry on Twitter after somebody reported bumping into Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame in Brockley, who said he was doing a photo shoot at the Rivoli Ballroom.

The results of that photoshoot have seen the light of day this week. Seems it was a fashion shoot  for  menswear designer John Varvatos, also featuring contemporary US blues musician Gary Clark Jr. The photos by Danny Clnch don't really give show much of the interior of the Rivoli, they could really have been taken anywhere.

The short film released at the same time does show more of the area, with Clark performing in the Ballroom and Jimmy Page driving through the mean streets of South London to arrive there.

From the video here's Clark inside the Rivoli:
