May 9, 1998. Jimmy Page Joins Puff Daddy To Desecrate ‘Kashmir’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’
Jimmy Page had his turn in 1998, when he not only gave his blessing to a hip-hop remake of Led Zeppelin's classic “Kashmir”, "Come with Me", but decided to play guitar on it — and then went a step further by appearing in the video with Puff Daddy and showing up to perform the “new” song on Saturday Night Live's 23rd season finale, on May 9 1998, doing their best to ramp up anticipation for the Godzilla's May 20 premiere
In fact "Come with Me" was featured on the soundtrack for the 1998 Godzilla film. Page and producer Tom Morello also supplied live guitar parts (Morello also played bass on the song). The song also features heavy orchestral elements. It reached #2 in the UK and #4 in the US.
A music video (below), directed by Howard Greenhalgh featuring both Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page, was made for the song.
Both the single and its film were seen as crass, lumbering, bloated miscalculations that tried to trade on former glories for commercial gain.
This collaboration was #27 on VH1's "Least Metal Moments" in a segment subtitled "It's All About the Zeppelin".
Public Enemy leader Chuck D declared in a 2012's interview “I like Jimmy Page and P. Diddy, but what they did to ‘Kashmir’ was a debacle. They are giants in their own way – and you can print this – but that was a f—ing travesty.”
