  2. GENESIS PUBLICATIONS ANNOUNCES THE OCTOBER 2014 RELEASE OF JIMMY PAGE’S OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHIC AUTOBIOGRAPHY TITLED SIMPLY JIMMY PAGE CURATED AND CAPTIONED BY JIMMY PAGE, THIS IS THE FIRST EVER BOOK BY A MEMBER OF LED ZEPPELIN Jimmy Page is one of music’s greatest guitarists, innovators and legends. JIMMY PAGE is his official autobiography, a photographic essay he personally created to tell his story for the first time. Jimmy's own words, combined with his handpicked selection of over 600 photographs, make this book the definitive visual and historical record of a remarkable life. JIMMY PAGE will be available in all major bookstores from October 2014. 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. – JIMMY PAGE The chronicle of a life in music, by one of the world’s most iconic guitar players, JIMMY PAGE is testament to the author’s vision – a work he describes as a photographic autobiography. Jimmy has chosen every one of the 650 photographs, written the accompanying text, arranged the content into its narrative order and overseen the design of his book. It was important to include every milestone along the way, so people who were fans of the music have got a real testament of the times. – JIMMY PAGE In the form of captions, the intensely private Jimmy has narrated the story of his legendary career for the first time. Delving into his personal archives, Jimmy has revealed unseen photographs, memorabilia and every one of his passports, saved throughout his life. Jimmy’s passport stamps were used to verify all tour dates, making JIMMY PAGE an authoritative historical account. The tour schedules, passport stamps, working visas and memorabilia really make up a complete picture, which just keeps unfolding as you turn each page of the book. – JIMMY PAGE In addition to Jimmy’s own photos, and those chosen from various sources including fans and magazines, his book showcases a collection of iconic portraits and rare images by over 70 of the greatest names in rock photography, including: Ross Halfin, Kate Simon, Gered Mankowitz, Dominique Tarlé, Pennie Smith and Jim Marshall. Jimmy chose one of his favourite portrait shots for the book cover: a 1977 passport photo, shot by Neal Preston on board Led Zeppelin’s private tour plane. There are many rare finds throughout, such as Led Zeppelin playing an impromptu gig in a nightclub in Jersey, or double-exposure shots of Jimmy and Brian Jones by Ian Stewart. I wanted to make it as thorough as possible, so that meant trawling through all the thousands of files that photographers had taken, and pulling from my personal collection as well. There’s a photo of me playing the guitar by the fire at Bron-Yr-Aur cottage. It’s the most complete document that there’s ever going to be because of the amount of time that I’ve put into every aspect. – JIMMY PAGE Over two years in the making, this 512-page volume documents Page’s musical journey, from 13-year-old choirboy to Sixties session musician, through The Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin and beyond. You see this young man growing, from when I’m a choirboy – and took my guitar along to see if I could tune it up from the organ – right through to almost yesterday. – JIMMY PAGE Today, Led Zeppelin remain arguably one of the biggest rock bands of all time, with the demand for tickets to their recent 2007 reunion breaking world records and the hugely anticipated re-issues of their entire catalogue coming on Rhino Records later this year. Jimmy Page continues to make history. He has performed at events including ARMS, Live Aid and the Beijing Olympics closing ceremony; collaborated with artists including The Black Crowes, Leona Lewis, Shirley Bassey and the Foo Fighters; and received awards including an OBE, a Kennedy Center Honor and a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On 10th May 2014 he will receive an honorary doctorate from the prestigious university of Berklee, joining previous honourees The Eagles, B.B. King, Steve Winwood, Dizzy Gillespie, George Martin and David Bowie. ‘JIMMY PAGE conveys in photographs what a typical written autobiography never could. The passion and energy of his life and career are crystal clear throughout.’ – Steve Gorman, The Black Crowes Originally conceived as a limited edition of only 2,500 copies worldwide, the first printing of JIMMY PAGE by Jimmy Page sold out within weeks of release. In the spring of 2010, it became the fastest-selling book in Genesis Publications’ 40-year history. Now Jimmy Page and Genesis Publications announce a more accessible and affordable printing of the book, to be released this October 2014. The perfect purchase for Led Zeppelin fans, guitar players and music lovers of any age, JIMMY PAGE is widely available in bookstores from October 2014. I always like to do something different – if you’re inspired by an idea, really make something of that inspiration. That goes for music, as well as anything else – even putting a book together! To have a photographic autobiography is a totally different way of looking at things, but it does the job very well and I think it will bring a lot of pleasure to people. – JIMMY PAGE ABOUT GENESIS PUBLICATIONS ‘As someone who’s always been interested in having a library themselves, I appreciate fine bookbinding and their whole ethic of what they do.’ – Jimmy Page Founded in 1974, Genesis Publications is a family-owned independent publishing house true to the arts of printing and bookbinding. Genesis creates signed limited edition books and prints for collectors in over 50 countries. Recent authors include musicians such as Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and David Bowie; visual artists such as Shepard Fairey, Storm Thorgerson and Sir Peter Blake; and contributing writers such as Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.

  3. You'll have to excuse my tardiness...I'm in the middle of a kiler stretch of work and shows. I'm so sleep-deprived I don't know if I'm coming or going. But here are some photos of the event Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at The Grove Barnes & Noble in Hollywood. I was around the hundredth person in line of 250. I got some great face time with Jimmy. Full details to come when I get a chance. No photos were allowed past a certain point in the line.
  4. OMG! My wife and I just got back from the David Letterman Show appearance that featured Jimmy Page tonight...... It was fantastic!! Not just one segment, but two full segments - with Jimmy telling a few stories....he curated several photos from his new book with David Letterman making his own commentary.... Some of the commentary was just absolutely hilarious....a very respectful crowd for Jimmy and very enthusiastic.... The staff at the Letterman Show certainly were treating Jimmy's appearance as special and very rare...... Both JP and David Letterman were in great form..... David's commentary was interesting and funny and he showed Jimmy much respect in general...... They promoted both the book AND the two Super Deluxe Reissues (LZ IV and Houses of the Holy) and showed closeups of some very cool photos from the book.... The Letterman staff were very generous with us, taking great care of us and putting my wife and I on the 2nd row of the balcony with an unobstructed view.... They were great to us.....! There were several times where I was laughing so hard at some of the commentary between Dave and Jimmy - they just had a very cool chemistry tonight and it was really fun to be here and experience it.... So proud for Mr. Page.....he deserves every bit of this acclaim.... Check it out tonight - well worth your time...... Just a brilliant segment.......!! Thought you all would want to know how it turned out..... All the best! Mark & Charley Bowman
  5. Hello! Anyone knows in which date was Jimmy's instrumental "Summer's Day" that appeared on his On This Day entry - 12 August .. I had a day off- recorded? Here's a Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kDdtp4xTpg Thanks.
  6. *****NOTE: I am new to this forum; I am NOT new to anything Led Zeppelin. Please, I ask you to ignore the first part of that sentence, and consider the second. Appreciated. ****** ***The Song Remains the Same Complete Re-EDIT On Way! *** [Note]: Individual evaluation only, not a means of piracy; this will NOT be distributed in any such way; again, my individual evaluations I've always preferred original TSRTS footage, be it a bootleg or 8mm. However, the actual viewing experience is rather limited by the subpar quality even terrible for 1970's cinematics. Honestly, the "film" portions of the film (I know, that sounds redundant, whatever) are pretty ugly. When one compares the close-up concert sequences re-filmed, the viewing experience becomes exhilarating. Add original panoramas of the actual crowd; the experience is timeless. And, of course, 1920 X 1080 resolution is absolutely stunning. The producers made their best intentions to create the best viewing experience possible during the time. The only reason I bring this thought up is because of a project I am working on to re-edit TSRTS (film) as close to original setlist as possible, while still retaining an apex entertainment factor. The fan-edition looks great, but I wish to make it even better. The plans are as follows: 1. Rip 2007 Blu-Ray release as a main video reference for best consumer-attainable quality as of 2013 2. Integrate my FLAC vinyl rips as much as possible to cover the abridged / shortened scene performances and restore original song length. 3. Somehow attain the best quality original footage / bootlegs. This includes the abandoned gaps in Black Dog, The Song Remains the Same, The Rain Song, etc. 4. The whole point of #3 is to eliminate psychedelic/fantasy sequences limiting attention on the band itself. The problem really arises from point no. 3; attaining footage to fill the gaps. I have some, but not enough. If anyone knows where to access the originals in best quality, that would be a great help! Plans for release are late December/early January 2013/2014, though this is extremely tentative and subject to change. ***This is for experimentation purposes only and NOT for personal gain, resale, or profit or mass-release and or reproduction; only individual evaluation.*** If any of you are of interest, please don't hesitate to inform me as soon as possible! Thank you for your support. -A/S
  7. The purpose of this thread is to chronicle the various events that Jimmy heads to, and all of the Jimmy Page sightings and events that perhaps don't warrant their own thread. Feel free to contribute! Any updates on what's been going on, along with photos and videos, are very welcome. Also, let's make sure that we respect Jimmy's privacy, so no discussion of his addresses or family.
  8. Question about 'BBC Sessions'

    Hey all. I'm currently listening to the BBC Sessions, and I have a question. On the Album cover, what Guitar is Jimmy holding? It doesn't look like a Telecaster or a Les Paul, his usual Guitars. Does anyone know what Guitar it is? Thanks.
  9. Stairway or Kashmir

    Which do you think is better Stairway to Heaven or Kashmir?
  10. Hey everybody, when I was listening to some random, non-Zeppelin things of Jimmy playing the other day (Death WIsh from JP.com, Mean Business, and the "ARMS" concert on vinyl), I thought of RoyalRumpus' post- "Jimmy Page needs a good rest," where Robert Plant responded to Jimmy saying..."bla, bla, bla"...but under that post there was mention of John Davis "tweeting" (I loathe that word) about having a "Terrific session this morning with James Patrick Page." there was a few comments interspersed later in the post about this, but I thought a new posting to track other "leaks" about what may turn out to be a new project from Mr. Page might be a good idea since hopefully there will be more info coming along in time. So, If Jimmy is rehearsing/recording right is he doing the bulk of it at a home studio? Or is he smuggled into the rehearsal space in a coffin? I kid, but how can these sessions go on in secret? People have to work in the area and see him entering a studio building, other musicians in the facility, or even security companies would at least see him enter a room if not get to hear him play. He must have a Peter Grant-esque mafia to keep his dealings in things musical secret. Justin Beiber farts and the media goes wild, Kardashian posts well wishes to a neice on Facebook and that's news for some pathetic reason, so why is there such a shortage of info on Page recording new material? Unless Jimmy isn't working at all, and John Davis is f-ing with us there should be some more info out there if this is happening.
  11. Does anybody remember laughter??? Jimmy Page - ARMS - Dallas - November 29, 1983 Photo: Mark Bowman Images Official Website: www.markbowmanimages.com Official Artist Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mark-Bowman-Images/200656080063765
  12. Hi there! I've been out for a long time. Hope you're all fine. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I've just finished one of the hardest projects: a more faithful replica of that pendant considering there's not a single sharp photo of it. If someone here wants one, I give 10% off saying that found me via this forum. It's handmade under request and is an exclusive fine piece. Ps.Thank you and if I could not post here sorry! http://mystikdragon.com
  13. http://www.tvrage.com/shows/id-35853/episodes/1065552299 not sure how true it is but I already set my dvr just in case
  14. Hi all, I am trying to find a recorded video of Wednesday's event in Paris. The recordings I'm finding all say "This video is private" when I try to watch them. Anyone know where I can see the event? I was not able to stream it live. :-(
  15. Live at the Greek LP

    This is for the vinyl enthusiasts out there. As a huge fan of LZ and the Black Crowes, I love Live at the Greek. I have the TVT and Japanese CD versions, but there are two problems with the sound, IMO: 1) they're too hot; 2) there's a squealer on the CD's who absolutely ruins the listening experience whenever she appears. Why she was left so high in the mix, I can't imagine. Nonetheless, the vinyl completist in me just had to buy the LP's of this show. I'm happy to report that the squealer is largely backgrounded into the crowd noise, and the LP's are not hot. Unfortunately, the vinyl edition doesn't have the bonus songs found on the Japanese CD's, but it's worth it to have a good sounding recording of the show. Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I've searched the Forum and haven't found any mention of the superior sound quality of the LP's vs. the CD's.

  17. I was in a band called Superfuzz at the time - a 3 piece stoner/blues rock band from Southampton England. Our singer/guitarist Ed decided he'd try to educate us with some Rival Sons, and bought all three of us tickets to go up and see them at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, London for late 2012. An up and coming 3-piece called Pint-Sized Hero opened on the night with some aggressive, straight-edged pop/blues rock and seemed great with the large Sons crowd. The next band on was a 5, maybe 6 piece electro/psychadelic T-Rex style band named Odyssey or something like that... either way, they played an even better set; much more to my tastes. Finally the evening pushed forward to about 9:10pm and the lights started to dim around the large ballroom, and the voices began to simmer down gradually as it got darker. Me, Ed, and our bassist Tristan all motioned ourselves closer to the stage as we wanted to see these rockstars up close and personal... we wanted to feel in the presence of greatness, though we got more greatness than we expected! There was only one rail in use to bar off the stage and that was near where we were stood on the right side of the stage, facing out. To our left there was a backstage entrance/exit, which was barred off by some rails, which created a pathway to some stairs left of us as well, and these stairs led up to a tiny platform which we were stood right next to, so the backstage exit must have been no more than 8 or 9 feet from us at this point. Rival Sons finally made their entrance and instantly i could feel the presence and charisma of Jay Buchanan (Vocals) and Scott Holliday (Guitar). They all kicked off with Keep On Swinging off of their then newly released album Head Down. I remember distinctly throughout the first 20 minutes or so of their set that the backstage door was frequently being opened and closed, noticing their drum techs and unfamiliar faces looking out at the large crowd. Nothing prepared me for what happened about 40 minutes in though, as they began playing Jordan, the backstage door was opened vaguely, I couldn't help but be distracted by this door, and I felt like the only idiot in the room not paying attention to the awesomeness being produced from on stage, but then I suddenly saw two sort of large looking men in suits with stern looks on their faces walking out in single file and towards where we were stood next to the rail guarding off the backstage entrance. This is when people started to notice what was going. As the two guys got closer I could see multiple other heads bobbing up and down behind them, all following in single file down this narrowly created exit towards the small platform besides us. Apart from the two tall men I could see coming towards me, I could just about count three other heads behind them. The other two guys at the end seemed quite tall and built as well, but the head I could see sandwiched between the four men had grey hair, and this made extremely curious indeed. The grey hair also appeared to have a ponytail that I recognised. As they finally got close enough that they walked by me, I stood suddenly for a moment in shock, and for what felt like an entire life time, and as the awesomely loud rock segued into what seemed like low frequency ambience, and unbelievably my friends didn't notice, but the man I was staring at was none other than Jimmy Page! I tapped furiously on Ed's arm and screamed in his ear, "That's Jimmy PAGE!! It's JIMMY PAGE!!" pointing wildly at him as if I could be considered a threat at any moment to the legend himself. All three of us turned our heads slowly, 90 degrees to our left and gazed up slightly and there he was surrounded by his masculine entourage watching the Rival Sons gig with the gaze of a master overlooking his pupils, discerning of everything else, but the music he was seeing and hearing. Although this story most likely pales in comparison to a lot of other Jimmy Page stories on here, you'd have to consider that I was stood no less than maybe 3 feet from the man for the duration of about 20 minutes of Rival Son's set. And all 20 of those minutes I could not concentrate, and I kept looking over to check if what I was seeing was really real, or an illusion. Crazy thoughts and ideas came into my head, but nothing practical. One young girl was let through the rails to go up and get Jimmy Page's autograph, and I swear in that moment, I had a brief fleeting thought, "I could slap you and steal your autograph".
  18. Is there anywhere online where I can find the full Led Zeppelin August 4th Knebworth performance.
  19. Wasn't sure where to put this...but it's news, so figured it would fit here. This Sunday at 3:00p.m., the American Cinematheque is having the world premiere of two new films about the Amnesty International Human Rights Concerts held from 1986-1998. The films will include footage of Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland of The Police will be there in person. It is at the Cinematheque's Aero Theatre in Santa Monica (which is where I saw "Celebration Day"). Here are the details: Mods & Rockers ¡RELEASED! The Human Rights Concerts Mods & Rockers returns to the American Cinematheque with this special afternoon world premiere celebrating Amnesty International’s legendary Human Rights Concerts. Join us for the World Premiere of ¡RELEASED! THE HUMAN RIGHTS CONCERTS, a new concert film of highlights distilled from the legendary Amnesty International concerts 1986-1998, including stirring performances and unique collaborations by Bruce Springsteen, U2, The Police, Radiohead, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Jimmy Page & Robert Plant, Lou Reed, Jackson Browne, Alanis Morissette, and many more. Preceded by: World Premiere! "Light a Candle! The Story Behind the Human Rights Concerts" (2013, 40 min. Dir. Peter Shelton) This new documentary traces the history of Amnesty’s human rights benefits from their roots in the "Secret Policeman’s Ball" shows of the 1970s & 1980s to Amnesty's concerts and tours of the 1980s & 1990s. Features brand-new interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Pete Townshend, Peter Gabriel, Bono and previously unseen historic footage. Program also includes the world premiere of a short Peter Gabriel home movie shot during Amnesty's 1986 tour, and a short animation anthology (curated by Aardman Animation) illustrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights - with a specially-created soundtrack by David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, Danny Elfman and Mark Mothersbaugh and voiced by Jeff Bridges and Debra Winger. Background on the Human Rights Concerts: http://www.HumanRightsConcerts.com Discussion follows with The Police band members Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland and ¡RELEASED! producer Martin Lewis (co-creator/producer of Amnesty's "Secret Policeman's Ball" series).
  20. As listed on LZ's website, this is the official setlist over the course of three nights: Rock and Roll, Celebration Day, (Bring It On Home intro) Black Dog, Over the Hills and Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, The Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Dazed and Confused (incl. San Francisco), Stairway to Heaven, Moby Dick, Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love (incl. Let That Boy Boogie), The Ocean. When do the clips stop/end for the particular night? Meaning; July 27:1, 2, 3, 4, 5 / July 28: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 / July 29: 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 in accurate order if what is listed isn't verbatim. -and- Is "The Ocean" really the last track? I was under the initial impression "Whole Lotta Love" was. However, after reviewing the 2007 Blu-Ray release extras, it seems to indeed cease with concluding bows and what not. After "WLL", Plant simply says, "New York, good night." and walks off nonchalantly. I'm under the dogma that Plant said that in the same clip as the Ocean, of which, only was decided to be used in the final cut of the film. What do you guys think? I do appreciate your opinions and contributions. ^A/S
  21. Watching Celebration Day DVD - again.... I notice at the end of the Dazed and Confused violin bow section with Jimmy... The green laser light pyramid rotating around him stops, stays fully lit and in place as the eerie green geometric shape it is - high above Jimmy. Odd thing is Jimmy walks out of the pyramid at that point...normally he will wait until the laser pyramid has been shut down before continuing his solo! I believe there is great significance to him walking out of the still energized laser lights. If you look closely at the part of the video where he comes out and tosses his violin bow he does it with purpose and intention. Not an accident. Some may say he was pissed because of the problems with the lasers and effects at that point but look close and you will see him deliberately stepping out of the green pyramid and tossing his bow. He never had done this in all the Zeppelin years previously...he always waited until the lasers went out to move around the stage, and he never threw his bow. Very symbolic and significant of him to do this at that point. It does have clear meaning on certain levels of ritual attainment.
  22. Has ANYONE seen these kids??? They are mashing up Led Zeppelin songs in hopes they can get their generation to learn the true roots of music!! Simply by combing today's artists with Led Zeppelin! Have a look at these mashups! Right out of The Song Remains The Same Is there anyone who can get this to Jimmy, Robert or John Paul? The bands name is Giffords Lane
  23. Led Zeppelin's Finest Moment

    What do you guy think is Led Zeppelin's finest moment. For me it's this:
