Need help finding a long lost photo of Jimmy Page

Recommended Posts

There was a super cool photo (at least to me) of Jimmy Page in a magazine (possibly Creem or Hit Parader) from the early seventies.  I've looked everywhere for it, in books, Google Images, etc.  The photo is of Jimmy tuning his #1 Les Paul, you can't see his face (just his hair), he is sitting down, and I believe he is wearing a red short sleeve polo type shirt (very unusual for Jimmy).  It has to be a very early photo from say 69-71.  It is just such a candid shot and one of the best of his Les Paul that was taken off stage.  Please post if you know of it ... it's just one of those photos that made such an impression on a young kid.  Thanks in Advance!

I think you might be thinking of a picture from this session of a soundcheck in Amsterdam 72'. Let me know if I'm right and I'll dig for more to find the one you're on about.

First, awesome photos, thanks.  But it's not from that session.  About ten years ago on some obscure Zep site a guy found it for me so my memory has been renewed since the early seventies.  I believe he said it was at a Canadian concert.  It's a color picture, Jimmy in a red shirt sitting down with his head bowed in heavy concentration over his Les Paul, but you can't see his face, just his hair hanging down.  I hope this helps.

I believe I remember another, very similar picture of Jimmy taken around early 1970 that sounds almost spot on to what you are describing, except it is not the #1 LP but rather his Black Beauty he is tuning while sitting down.

Nope, neither of those. I believe the picture I am referring to is in black and white, Jimmy is wearing a crombie, and he is tuning his BB. However the picture above with Jimmy in black & red shirt looks like what the OP was possibly referring to.

OP here, that's the one!!!  I was wrong the shirt was black with red trim and not red.  Thanks big time.  As a kid I would stare at that picture while listening to the albums.  I'm a gear head and that picture of #1 in natural light is awesome, plus the fact it still had the cream/white bobbin bridge pickup up on it before it failed.  Thanks again!!!
