Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page

Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page - 

Led Zeppelin
guitarist Jimmy Page has a new book on the way. 'Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page,' by Guitar World's Brad Tolinski, will be published October 23, report Hennemusic

The new book is a rare literary outing for Page, who throughout the years has shunned any talk of a biography, much in the same way his bandmates have through the years.

However, Tolinski, Editorial Director of Guitar World, Revolver and Guitar Aficionado magazines, has managed to interview Page more than anyone else through the years and has established a trusting relationship with the guitar master.

The book has been compiled from over 50 hours of interviews that touch on everything from the 60's music scene through to bands and artists Page has worked with through the years such as The Who, The Kinks and Eric Clapton.

"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. A fascinating must-have for Jimmy Page fans like myself." - SLASH

"Light & Shade illuminates the haunted genius of Jimmy Page in an original and completely satisfying way. The conversational dynamic between the author and the subject reveals a wealth of info about the man, the music, and the magic." - Kirk Hammett, METALLICA

"Jimmy Page... the one and only! From mild to wild, Jimmy sez it all. This fine work will rock you!" - Billy Gibbons, ZZ TOP

'Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page' will be published October 23.
