'Jimmy Page In Conversation With Chris Cornell' To Be Held In November In Los Angeles

Recommended Posts

To celebrate the publication of Jimmy Page's official photographic autobiography, "Jimmy Page" -- the first book by a member of Led Zeppelin -- Genesis Publications (with Guitar World and Guitar Aficionado) will present "An Evening With Jimmy Page In Conversation With Chris Cornell".

The event will take place 8:30 p.m. November 12 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

The audience will be invited to join Page and Cornell -- the Soundgarden frontman -- as they look through unseen photos and memorabilia, many drawn from Page's archives. Page will revisit memories of his life in music, "from 13-year-old choirboy to Sixties session musician, through The Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin and beyond."

"I always like to do something different. If you're inspired by an idea, really make something of that inspiration," Page said. "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."

Delving into his personal archives, Page has revealed unseen photographs, memorabilia and every one of his passports. His passport stamps were used to verify all tour dates, making Jimmy Page an authorative historical account.

In addition to Page's photos and those chosen from various sources, including fans and magazines, his book showcases a collection of iconic portraits and rare images by more than 70 of the greatest names in rock photography, including Ross Halfin, Kate Simon, Gered Mankowitz, Dominique Tarle, Pennie Smith and Jim Marshall. Page chose one of his favorite 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 Page 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," Page said. "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."

Well, it would have been sweeter to be able to go to the NYC event so I could meet all of you...but at my age, I'll take what I can get. Thank you, Jimmy Page, for coming to my backyard! :thumbsup:

As one who it not attending in any of the locations, if there is a Q&A, I would be interested to know why this cover shot is his favorite and why it was chosen?

If any of you have an opinion, I'd love to hear it, too.

Mr. James Patrick Page is My most favorite person on this entire planet and I would never say anything negative or disparaging about this Man, however, I would and am also interested about this question, why was it chosen (as the cover photo)?

...also Tokyo...this Thursday.

That talk is also about the book, not the remasters?

I believe there's also a $100 seat. Apparently they both come with books, the $150 one comes with a "hand stamped" book.

I will be attempting to score a ticket when they go on sale, but I really don't have a way to get downtown. If anyone from the IE or OC is planning to go... :smiley_pray:

It will be fascinating to hear accounts of all these book events: Tokyo, London, Paris, New York and LA .

The signs are that with different sponsoring organisations and very different pricing structures the audiences won't all get the same kinds of production, or format to the events.

I just came back from a long vacation as well as taking time off twice earlier this year. Plus we're now shorthanded at one of my jobs thanks to a guy going cuckoo...so no can do, unfortunately. Look forward to hearing your reports as to what I can expect Nov. 12.

Wow so close and yet so far and probably price wise untouchable. In my home town of LA. I hope it gets on to You Tube.

Too bad Strider and hope you at least get to go to the LA event! Hopefully your vacation was relaxing, memorable and no incarceration ! Enjoy Robert's show tonight! It's a good one as I saw his US opener in Portchester a couple of weeks ago! Hope you're enjoying his new album as I am. I think it's one of his best!

His NPR broadcast is available again!

Just to be clear, it was a book stamping session only...no talk as such. He did have other promotional duties scheduled in Tokyo to promote the remasters.

I was on the fence for awhile because I thought it was kind of expensive for a conversation without a musical performance but I finally bought a ticket. It comes with a copy of the book too.

I am still on the fence about this...if there was an actual signing, perhaps I would be more inclined. With so much recent expenditures on my vacation, concerts, the Zeppelin, Queen, Stones and other deluxe box sets that have been released, not to mention the holidays coming up, a stamped Jimmy book has slid down the totem pole of priorities.

Things may change as November 12 draws nearer.
