New Jimmy Page Book Compiles Interviews with Led Zeppelin Legend
Throughout his career, rock legend Jimmy Page has never been much for publicity. However, journalist Brad Tolinski has been fortunate enough to interview the guitar god many times over the past 20 years and has compiled those chats into a new book, ‘Light & Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page.’
Tolinski, editorial director of Guitar World, Revolver and Guitar Aficionado, sorted through more than 50 hours of interviews for ‘Light & Shade.’ The book takes the reader on a journey through Page’s career, first as a session guitarist working with the likes of the Who and the Kinks, then as a member of the Yardbirds to rock mega-stardom with Led Zeppelin and beyond. Along the way, Page gives his thoughts on many of Zep’s most famous songs, his infamous dabbling in the occult, his fellow guitar legends and meeting Elvis Presley.
“This is the most comprehensive and compelling collection of interviews, insights and historical anecdotes of one of rock and roll’s premier guitarists, songwriters and producers ever compiled,” Slash wrote in a blurb for the book. “A fascinating must-have for Jimmy Page fans like myself.”
‘Light & Shade: Conversations with Jimmy Page’ will be available Oct. 23.
