Hello all.

Really nice article today in the Guardian about Tower House, Jimmy Page's home in London.

He appears to have made this his primary home in recent years, unlike in the past, where he would use it only for when he needed to spend time in London.

It seems pretty clear that Jimmy engineered this article for the purposes of getting some positive publicity over his ongoing dispute with Robbie Williams.  Jimmy is not the kind of person who would do an article like this out of the goodness of his heart.  By that, I mean he is a highly private person who typically shuns this kind of personal publicity.

The constant mentioning of the historical rating for the house and the link to the other article about the dispute is a dead giveaway. This wasn't just an appreciation of the house and it's history, it was done to raise awareness about the neighbor situation. Which is fine considering the house is certainly historically significant. Page is just trying to protect something he feels is culturally important.

Thanks for fixing the link gf. Originally sent this from my temperamental iPad !

Agree with you both about Jimmy doing this largely to flag up the neighbour problem. And it is a house that he feels a huge level of commitment to, so I understand his position.

I do like the point about Jimmy only playing acoustic guitar in there because of the possible effect of vibrations !

There seems to be some indication that the house is a landmark and protected? In the US if that happens even the person who buys the house is responsible for preserving it and cannot make changes to it. Jimmy should have no problem if his house is historic and Williams construction will destroy/damage it but I understand the laws in England may be different

Other than that I don't think I would want to live someplace where I constantly have to walk on egg shells. Him being a musician makes it strange he can only bring out an acoustic. But hey maybe that's Jimmy's excuse for not doing any new music lol!!!

Noticed a nice McIntosh Amp on the floor, a speaker and some LP's.

The place looked like a medieval museum and wondered if the candelabra was used in TSRTS.... 

Thanks for the peak inside Jimmy!

Good eye! Looks like an MC2105 and a Luxman C-1000 pre amp.  Can't ID the speakers. I'll bet that's a turntable under the cloth judging by all the albums on the floor.  Jimmy was using a Thorens 145 in the It Might Get Loud movie...
