Today: Jimmy Page at Cheltenham Literature Festival to Discuss Jimmy Page: The Anthology
13 Oct 2021
Jimmy Page will be taking the stage at The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival this evening (Wednesday 13 October) to discuss his acclaimed, career-spanning book, Jimmy Page: The Anthology
The rare interview will be chaired by Times journalist Will Hodgkinson and located at The Times and The Sunday Times Forum at Montpellier Gardens in the heart of Cheltenham.
It will be held at 5:45pm and cover his spectacular life in music, from his colossal body of session work in the Sixties, through to the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin and beyond. Page will also discuss the contents of the book, including the impressive archive of guitars, costumes and memorabilia that he has amassed throughout his career, all of which was published for the first time in the anthology.
A limited number of tickets are still available and can be booked here
through the festival's website for £14 plus a booking fee.
Speaking about the book last year, Page said: "I wanted to include items from my personal archive that have played a part in my overall story, to give the detail behind the detail."
The Anthology contains a new text of over 70,000 words, in which Jimmy Page guides the reader through hundreds of rare items, many of which are previously unseen, and others of mythic status, such as the Gibson double neck guitar, his dragon-emblazoned suit, his white embroidered poppy suit, and the outfit worn in the concert film The Song Remains the Same. Also included are handwritten diaries, correspondence, rare vinyl pressings, previously unpublished photographs and much more. Page personally selected each piece shown in the book to create the most comprehensive and revealing account of his life to date.
