'Jimmy Page' is out now
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has discussed his newly released photographic autobiography in a video which you can watch below.
The official autobiography came out yesterday (October 14). The self-titled book features over 600 photos from the musician’s archive as well as his own words telling the story of Led Zeppelin’s rise. The book was originally released in 2010 but limited to just 2,500 copies. In the video you can also see images from the book.
Speaking about the book, Page, who is the first member of Led Zeppelin to release a book, says: “I’ve been asked on a number of occasions to do a written book and I thought of the other side of the coin. I thought it would be unique to have an autobiography in photographs, charting my whole musical journey.”
Last month Page ruled out any chance of the band playing together ever again today. The legendary axeman was hosting a playback of his remastered versions of ‘Led Zeppelin IV’ and ‘Houses Of The Holy’ at Olympic Studios in London when he confirmed the news.
Asked directly by NME if remastering the albums made him want to reform the band again, he said: “I don’t think it looks as though that’s a possibility or on the cards, so there’s not much more I can say about that. I’m not going to give a detail-by-detail account of what one person says or another person says. All I can say is it doesn’t look likely, does it?”
His comments come after Robert Plant recently said that he felt “disappointed and baffled” after Page dropped repeated hints about wanting to play with the band again. The guitarist also said that he was “fed up” with his bandmate for delaying his plans. Led Zeppelin last played together in 2007 for a one-off tribute to Atlantic Records’ Ahmet Ertegun at London’s O2 Arena.
