A few months ago, Jimmy Page had a revealing interview with Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, onstage at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.
The subject of their talk was Page’s new book, Jimmy Page, a lavish photographic history of his life in music. Or rather, to quote Page, his “life in photographs.” During the one-and-a-half hour event, Cornell asked Page about his life and work while photos from the book—many of which come from Page’s personal archives—were projected on a screen above them. The topics ranged from Page’s work as a session guitarist to his years with the Yardbirds and, of course, the glory days of Led Zeppelin.
Guitar Player had front-row access to the event, and we’re sharing excerpts from the historic discussion in our March 2015 issue, on sale February 17.
Better still, we have video of Jimmy and Chris’s talk, so you can enjoy the event for yourself.
Here is the first of four segments, with more to come later.
