Is this real because I've never heard of this before?

its a screen cap off a possible question on a new Zeppelin app. Does someone know?

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Never heard that before either, but Page was a top session man in the mid-60s, so I'll bet it's true! Possibly he played the guitar on "Ringo's Theme" (ie. the instrumental "This Boy") or the "James Bond" stuff in Help!, or something else in either of those. By the time of MMT, he'd joined the Yardbirds and would've too busy to contribute to that one. (Assuming MMT even has soundtrack music – I've never seen it.)

[20 seconds of Googling later...]

OK, yep, he played on "Ringo's Theme". The stuff you learn! Thanks for starting this thread, let me give you one of my defective apples:

Oh my God, I wonder how many other great ones played with/for them over the years, and we still don’t know it. Eric’s playing in While My Guitar… was kept as a secret for many years. I guess the Fab Four weren’t as self-sufficient as I thought they were…

Clarification: Jimmy Page played backing guitar on Ringo's Theme.  Lead guitar was played by Vic Flick.  It was also Vic Flick who played guitar during the "James Bond" segment on American pressings of Help!. (Source)
