kenog Posted February 21, 2013 Share Posted February 21, 2013 This is an article from my archive regarding a well known Scottish photographer who stayed with Jimmy at Boleskine. I have included one of Doug’s photos, which I am sure you will all be familiar with. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home-news/50-years-of-scottish-history-through-the-lens.18711768 50 years of Scottish history through the lens Barry Didcock Senior features writer Sunday 2 September 2012 For nearly 50 years Douglas Corrance has been photographing the people and places of Scotland, capturing historical events that still resonate today as well as solitary moments that would have gone unrecorded had he not been present with his camera Titled Scotland: Five Decades Of Photographs, it is published on September 13 (Lomond Books, £25) and also features portraits of influential Scots such as Richard Demarco, Billy Connolly, James Kelman, Ian Rankin and Richard Holloway, as well as Led Zeppelin guitarist Page, whom Mr Corrance got to know when the band was at the height of its powers in the mid-1970s. "I did get quite friendly with him," Mr Corrance recalled. "I remember one time there was nobody at his house and somebody had left his Bentley there so I had to take him out there in my beaten-up Renault, and buy some bread and beans to cook him beans on toast when we got there. "But he was a lovely guy and we had some good times. I photographed some of their concerts and got a little insight into the rock and roll life as well."
