Jimmy Page Talks About the Making of Zeppelin's First Two Albums (VIDEO)


Welcome to the fourth and final segment of our Jimmy Page interview. In this edition, Jimmy discusses the making of Led Zeppelin’s first two albums and his development as a guitarist and producer over the band’s first albums. He also shows us the room where he and Robert Plant worked on the tracks “Babe I'm Gonna Leave You” and “Dazed and Confused.”

Chris Cornell of Soundgarden interviewed Jimmy onstage at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, to talk about his new book, Jimmy Page, a lavish photographic history of his life in music.

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.

You can view our the first, second and third segments of the talk.
