The New York Times Interviews Jimmy Page

08 Sep 2010

Jimmy Page Richfield Coliseum, Cleveland, USA © Janet MacoskaPublished today in the New York Times is a detailed interview with Jimmy Page, who takes time to talk about his new book with Genesis and the reasons behind it. Below are some samples from the main text which can be read in full on their website.

“Jimmy Page is the great guitar wizard, hurling Led Zeppelin’s thunder and fire down from the mountaintop.” The New York Times

“It’s [Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page] a career record in pictures, and while there are some candid shots at diners and customs checkpoints on the road, for the most part the book portrays Mr. Page in six-string-Adonis glory onstage.” The New York Times

“When publishing people say, “How about writing a book?” I say, “Yes, I’ve thought about it, but I’d like a book that came out posthumously.” That’s probably as good as it’s going to get: this visual documentary, and then possibly, if I ever get around to it, doing a book that comes out posthumously.” Jimmy Page

The full interview is available now on their website at and a version of this article appears in print today (September 8, 2010) on page C1 of the New York edition.
