Chris Dowd explains that the pair were so in awe of each other that their first meeting was an emotional affair. Dowd says: ‘Jeff told me they cried. They actually cried when they met each other. Jimmy heard himself in Jeff, and Jeff was meeting his idol. A lot of people thought Tim was the influence on Jeff, but it was really Led Zeppelin.”
