John Stamos Remembers That Time A Whip-Wielding Jimmy Page Screamed At Him

The charismatic John Stamos has done much to promote Fuller House, although the show's own promo spots have done nothing but terrify those who dared to mine the depths of Kimmy Gibbler nostalgia. If anyone can still bring viewers, it's Stamos, who has cheerfully removed his pants (not once but twice), and now he's stepped up for the ultimate sacrifice — a Howard Stern interview.

Of course, I kid. Stern isn't as hard-hitting as he was back in the day. He's actually a big ol' softie now, but Stamos and Stern dug into some hefty subjects. Stamos revealed his deep spiral of alcohol abuse and how he returned to happiness. He speaks of never becoming a father, and that subject was a sad one too. Then things got rowdy (as always) when the Beach Boys came up, and the subject turned to the time Jimmy Page dared to scream at John Stamos:

With Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page joining the Beach Boys during John's early Washington Monument show, Jeff Foskett was in charge of teaching Jimmy what key each Beach Boys song was in. John was brought along to the rehearsals in a hotel room. "We're in this hotel and we go up to the penthouse suite and there's cases everywhere … and I thought it was guitars everywhere. He had like whips and devil sh*t," John remembered. The defining moment came when Jeff was off with a roadie and in his absence, Jimmy turned to John to ask about the keys to a few songs. As a result, John got the brunt of Jimmy's displeasure with the answers. "‘I can't f*cking solo in E flat!' [Jimmy] was yelling at me and I was twenty years old or something."
