The picture of Jimmy sitting down with chairs in the background, "looking cranky", that one was taken by Linda Eastman McCartney. She was always taking pictures of the rock stars back then. Kind of a groupie. some of the photos she took of the early Rolling Stones are painful to look at, the way they were glaring at her.

^^I never saw that one. I guess it is from his time as session man, so he is hardly older than 20, maybe younger. I'd like to make him smile, he looks so serious...

Don't know for sure but it looks to me like he's about 18 there.

Isn't mid- to late-eighties?

Actually, he's 40. The picture is approximately from 1984.

I don't even think he looks younger in that picture; I'd say he looks rather tired.

OMFG. I want a life-size Pagey Barbie now.

But I'll settle for the real thing, too, if those don't exist.

It's just a guess, but maybe this one was taken at one of Andrew Loog Oldham's orchestral sessions in London at Regent Studios during the summer of 1964. I remember seeing that photo before Jimmy Page first arrived in Los Angeles around 1966.

Before creating Led Zeppelin in 1968, Page spent time as one of the Yardbirds, who had gotten their start like the Stones surrounding the Alexis Korner scene in London. But before that, he was also a session musician, working in the early to mid-1960s with artists like Brenda Lee and the early David Bowie. In 1964 he also participated at Andrew Oldham Orchestra sessions as well and plays on their version of Heart of Stone (which appears on the Metamorphosis album). At this point, when Brian started becoming more incapacitated and troublesome to the band, the Stones toyed with the idea of replacing Brian with Page, as Bill Wyman later revealed..

HEART OF STONE

First recorded in July of 1964 with Jimmy Page, that version was not released until 1975, on the album Metamorphosis. Re-recorded November 2, '64 and released two weeks later in the US as a single, and then released in the US on the album The Rolling Stones Now in February of 1965. Released in September of '65 in the UK on the album Out Of Our Heads.

Lead Vocal: Mick Jagger Weaving Electric Guitars: Keith Richards & Brian Jones Bass: Bill Wyman Drums: Charlie Watts Tambourine: Mick Jagger (?) or Brian Jones (?) Background Vocals: Mick Jagger & Bill Wyman

http://www.keno.org/stones_lyrics/heart_of_stone.htm

Recording began on November 2, 1964 at Los Angeles' RCA Studios. Each of the Stones plays their respective instruments, with Jagger on vocals, Richards and Brian Jones on guitars, Bill Wyman on bass, and Charlie Watts on drums. Jack Nitzsche performs both tambourine and piano.

"Heart of Stone" was released in December 1964, and became their second Top 20 hit in the US, reaching #19. The song was released the following February on the US-only album The Rolling Stones, Now!, but was not given a UK release until September 1965 release of Out of Our Heads. It would later be included on the compilation discs Hot Rocks and Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass).

A different, longer version released in 1975 on the album Metamorphosis had been recorded on 21-23 July 1964 with Jimmy Page on guitar and Clem Cattini on drums, probably as a demo.

The tracks were recorded from 1964-70 as follows:

Jun 10-11, 1964 at Chess Studios in Chicago

.....Don't Lie To Me (a Chuck Berry song, STILL wrongly credited to Jagger & Richards)

Jun 29 - Jul 7, 1964 at Regent Sound and Decca Studios in London

I just saw this--

She was not "kind of a groupie," she was a respected professional rock photographer. Yes, long before she met Paul.
