Hot pics of Jimmy

Recommended Posts

Big thank you for posting this Planetpage. It prompted me to drop in to the bookstore where I'd ordered it & found that through a mix up in their database, they'd been trying to contact someone else to let them know it had arrived. So, after a full upper body workout to lug it home, I am able to kick back this morning with Celebration Day on the box in the background & revel in these beautiful photos. Lots I haven't seen before & pleased to see the 2012 & 2014 additions since it first came out. Bliss!

...You very welcome...This is how Jimmy Page was introduced to the youth in the 70's.. in the Press at Large, "Pretty Jimmy Page", as I would gaze through the magazines'77...The Genesis Original Publication resides with me and I too will pick up the latest version. I am glad that you will own this book, and explore how truly Jimmy is not only a Master Visionary Artist, but very culturally profound Musician. The aura around the Legendary Musician in the 70's was of incomparable beauty and charm...you will be bewitched......

Jimmy Page's talent is undeniable but I wonder how much of his career success he owes to his "look"? The black mane of hair that contrasted with the paleness of his skin. The fine facial features and incredibly long eyelashes.

I don't know. Do females dominate the market?

I thought Jimmy's guitar playing was awesome and beautiful before I ever saw how physically awesomely beautiful he is.

Indeed, I also had heard the music before I ever had any idea about what Jimmy looked like. (First time I got an idea about what he looked like was in the 90's, when he and Robert did that MTV "Unledded" thing. Back then I still had no clue what he looked like in his prime.....).

But...., I do think Jimmy's appeal was the fact that he was somehow different. Oh..., and he had something mysterious about him. Jimmy didn't seem to go with what was popular or fashionable, he did his own thing. In my opinion, Jimmy is an example of how being different can actually be a good thing.

I think his exceptional talent, fierce determination ('I took no prisoners') & a lot of hard work would have got him there anyway. His looks certainly wouldn't have slowed him down any though.

I also loved their music with no idea what any of them looked like for many years. It wasn't until I saw the DVD - Well hello boys! - What a bonus - 4 cute guys. Robert grabs your attention because he's so 'out there' - in so many ways. With Jimmy, it's been more of a slow burn. The more I read about Jimmy & the more I listened to him play & realised just how talented he is, the better looking he's seemed to me.

I think it's the other way around. I think that Mr. Page's extraordinary musical talent has enhanced his looks, added a "glamour", if you will. If he was a mediocre musician I'm guessing no one would notice his appearance at all.

I meant that from 1968-1977 Jimmy Page never looked like anyone else in the rock world. It wasn't his good looks so much as what he did with them. His signature look was part Regency dandy and part ephebe.

I had to look up "ephebe"! At first I was put off by the definition, "(in ancient Greece) a young man of 18–20 years undergoing military training". But then I read on and saw "also : a young man : youth". However, don't you think the Beatles already went there? And moved on? There were so many unique, fashionable musicians then - Bowie, of course, jumps to mind as one who knew how to use clothes to make an elegant and unique statement. Still does.

^ Like this photo lots. Welcome to the discussion Yellowrose :)

He & Grant were certainly a formidable combination. And I agree he would have been pretty breathtaking in his prime. (Still very cute.)

And from some of his interviews, he had the smoothest silkiest voice that 'one' could have.

Would like one of these in my trolley thanks.

The photo shown on this post is the first one of Jimmy Page that I saw when I was eight years old back in the early 70s. I was digging in my oldest brother's guitar case when I found the sheet music to Stairway with the four band members photos on the front cover. Even at that age, I was smitten by his looks and then found out about their music from my brother. Now that I am an old lady, I am still smitten by his looks, but I also appreciate his musical skill. As for whether his looks affected his career, I would say that it may have been a two edged sword. His androgynous features would have been attractive to both men and women (in a perfectly normal sense), but at the same time the tough look and manner of Peter Grant I think was needed for the Zeppelin to really get off the ground and be taken seriously in a music world that was so business and mafia dominated at that time. Just as a side note, I think Grant took to Jimmy because he found out early on that under Jimmy's gentle exterior, there was a very stong willed and tough personality and musical intellect that was very different than most other artists of the time. I think Grant appreciated this but maybe felt that things could happen more readly if the business world had to deal with Grant's monsterous size and character first.

With or without his music, if I where to have seen him in an ordinary setting when he was at his prime, he most certainly would have made my head turn.

Yellowrose, welcome! I too love the pictures you posted, thank you for those. Plus, you added some interesting points to our discussion.

There often is this idea that a man with fine features, like Jimmy, couldn't really be a "man's man".

Well, I think us ladies know all too well, that in his prime Jimmy was quite the womanizer.......

Oh and I am quite sure that even now that he is older, he still is regarded to quite a charming man.

Ladies, you know what stayed in my mind somehow? I was just flipping through the pages of this topic

When I came across a picture of Jimmy in his Yardbird days, wearing a ruffled shirt and a sort of baroque-looking jacket.

With this picture, it was mentioned how Jeff Beck recalled Jimmy talking about Marquis de Sade. Well...., I think that says something about

Jimmy even back then already being quite the naughty boy.......

If I'm perfectly honest with myself, he wasn't ever my type of guy in terms of appearance/body build, so I probably wouldn't have taken a second look if it wasn't for Jimmy Page's music. But that's what makes the world go around - different preferences!

To be talking about the Marquis de Sade when that young doesn't mean that much. The early decades of a life are when most people do their sexual exploring. There has always been a big deal made of the things Jimmy Page and the others said when they were still pretty much kids, but they've moved on. That's just normal.

Besides, that was the sixties - the sexual revolution. It was a time of pushing back the limits of societal expectations. If you weren't talking about such things as the Marquis de Sade, the Story of O, Lolita (all of which came before the sixties, mind you) or going to see the Mitchell Brothers' new "art" porn, you weren't cool. If you weren't actually *trying* those things, you weren't cool, either. Pushing the limits was what that time was about for many of us, and the music, literature and other arts reflect it.

Jimmy and the boys were doing on a big scale what was going on all over the world then. People like to talk about him as if he was exceptionally naughty, but what he was doing was actually mild compared to others back then who weren't in the media spotlight. There are plenty of grandmas and grandpas walking around you every day who have hairy stories they could tell that makes Jimmy Page's (published) exploits look mild.

Great photos Scylla. Do you know the setting of the last one? It looks like an amusement park judging from the miniature train in the background.

Jimmy's book just arrived ( :hurrah: ) and on page 40 is the answer: "August 10 1966, Before the show, Green's Pavilion, Lakeview Park, Manitou Beach, Detroit, USA".

From what I've read, the common themes in recollections of the ladies who were involved with JPP are that he was romantic, generous and fun - and not into anything unusual.

I reckon they might have encountered some pretty scary groupies in their time - famous people attract some very unusual people!

The person I wouldn't trust nor touch with a ten foot pole is Richard Cole.

...Beautiful, and Pretty Jimmy Page'77 :heartbreaker: , Indeed, The Face that launches Thousand Photographers..........

">http://jimmybioface_zps08ba9560.jpeg

Am really enjoying this book. Photos I have seen online look so much better printed on lovely paper. And getting more insight into the complex man & his gentle sense of humour - as you predicted PlanetPage.

I didn't realise the significance of your words - 'Pretty Jimmy Page'

The thing that does surprise me is his choice of photo for the cover - one of 'unprettiest' photos of him I've seen. I know why his eyes lack their usual shine & intensity then. With so many other georgeous photos available, wonder why this one.

^Nothing weird about seeing things differently :) And I'm grateful for your perspective on this because, as I was reading it, I realised why this image really bothered me. Now when I look at it I can see some of the things you see too - and I feel better about it - thanks to you.

Call me weird, but that pic is, for me, one of his best images. The one I chose to frame some time ago. The gaze intensity, some mistery, the look of his struggling with demons maybe, but both brutally and beautifully honest. It's my fave and reminds me that nobody really knows mr. Page (nor his reasons).
