    Page's Supro amp recreated

    So, now we see one of the reasons Page was at Abbey Road Studios recently. He now seems to be into recreating his gear to make it marketable, rather than creating new music. Obviously there will always be an audience for this stuff, but you're going to have to have some serious wedge to be able to afford it I reckon. https://www.sundragonamp.com/?fbclid=IwAR1LRvvEZSz_e28rmKbvAJyYi_jD-7nK0RroRR6cZekPX6qaC_hwpe4zGN8

    LED ZEPPELIN OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED BOOK - COMING 2018

    It's the kebab shop in Camden Town he went to straight after the O2, rather than going to the after party. It's a five minute walk from his house in Primrose Hill, and he's a regular customer. I believe (please correct me if i'm wrong) he referenced it quite recently as being the only place a reunion would happen - with tongue firmly in cheek.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    The first of Page's Transperformance guitars appeared at the end of the Coverdale/Page sessions, and he managed to do some overdubs on one of the tracks (Absolution Blues? Can't remember offhand). Definitely not 70's canon - required 90's computer technology and gutting the inside of the guitar to fit the motors & brain inside.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    He's got one of his Transperformance auto-tuning guitars strapped on. Theremin just in view to the right. Typical 90's Whole Lotta Love setup. Could be just a photoshoot, but why go to the expense of hiring Abbey Road? Not a cheap venue. I still think he's re-amping a direct from guitar recording and using ambience from the room in Abbey Road to add some depth to the sound. Wonder what era the recording is from 😉? Abbey Road have been investing heavily in de-mixing technology..... used extensively for The Beatles and some early Stones recordings recently. Could open up lots of possibilities for re-balancing so-called 'soundboard' recordings. Very interesting.

    Jimmy Page photo shoot at Abbey Road Studios

    There's a microphone in front of one of the amps. He might have actually played a couple of notes too. Certainly a pointless exercise, unless.... he's using the rig to re-amp a guitar part from an old recording that had a dry (i.e. direct from the instrument) guitar signal and he wants to recreate the exact sound....

    "Okay" heard in Achilles?

    It goes through the first couple of bars of the guitar solo.

    Jimmy Page loans tapestries to Tate Britain

    Isn't there a photo from the early 80's of Jimmy leaning on a pool/snooker table looking more than a little inebriated in front of one of those tapestries (the long one with the building with the open door at the right hand side)?

    Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

    Bwahahahahaha! 😂 That's hilarious.

    Tower House

    Jimmy's not looking terribly steady on his legs, especially going up the stairs. This is not a man who is going to be appearing onstage again, I feel.

    Learning to Play

    How much do you want to learn how to play? The hungrier you are to learn, the quicker you will learn! It all comes down to how much time and effort you put into it. Anyone, at any age, can learn to play. And the great thing is it's good for you. Learning an instrument has great positive cognitive benefits, helps hand-eye coordination and can be very relaxing too. Plus the sense of achievement you get when you are finally able to play something that felt impossible to start with is immense.
  15. He's done 'something to do with music' that isn't Led Zeppelin, or his dim and distant past. That's pretty incredible😉
