A special limited-edition, hand-stamped version of Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page—the photographic autobiography and visual history of the world’s most iconic guitar player—is available now at the Guitar World Online Store.
Page carefully chose hundreds of photos representing significant moments in his career.
There’s the schoolboy with the rockabilly hairstyle, his extensive work as a session musician, the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, the ARMS Concerts, the Firm, Outrider, Coverdale & Page and Page & Plant, playing with Roy Harper and the Black Crowes, collaborating with P. Diddy and performing with Leona Lewis at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
To celebrate the release of the book, on November 12, Page appeared with Chris Cornell, guitarist and singer for Soundgarden, at the Theater at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles for a relaxed question-and-answer session that spanned the entirety of Page’s 50-year career.
Sponsored by Genesis Publications, Gibson Custom, Guitar World and Guitar Aficionado, the hour-and-a-half event enthralled a packed house of 1,400 fans as Cornell quizzed Page about the rare photos and memorabilia—many drawn from Page’s personal archives—which were projected on an enormous screen hovering above both men.
Several copies of Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page were hand-stamped with the “Zoso” stamp—marked uniquely for the November 12 event.
