Photos from Jimmy's Book

Recommended Posts

I've started a new thread to share the photos from Jimmy's book from Genesis that we've all been waiting so long for with other members on forum.

I'll start with a few early photos:

This one is the first photo in the book, Jimmy as choir boy, his choirmaster was called Mr Coffin! :D

This photo is of Jimmy at home with his first guitar.

Pagebook_44.jpg

This one is from Jimmy's first passport aged 20. He went to Germany, then he went to America for a month.

Finally this one is of Jimmy when he was in the Yardbirds. A reliable source has told me that the flag he is holding is upside down! :rolleyes:

I was quite surprised by his height on the passport. I always thought he looked really tall, well over 6ft. :huh:

Thank you for starting this thread, Magic!

Jimmy at his boathouse in 1970. There are a few pictures in the book of Jimmy in boats/ at his boathouse. That must have been a special place for him.

I love his caption to this. It just shows how important Zeppelin is now that people wouldn't even recognize him then.

Jimmy in 1983 walking along the wing of a plane in LA.

Pagebook_26.jpg

That is my favorite one. I am going to post a few I love as well.

I always how loved the way he looked in this photo shoot from '76. I am so happy he included it. These are among my favorites in the entire book. They must be the contact sheets

The Sphinx is another one I loved.
