Jimmy Page: “L.A. Was Like Sodom And Gomorrah!”

In stores next week is “Light And Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page,” a book taken from several interviews that Led Zeppelin’s leader did with Guitar World’s Editorial Director Brad Tolinski over the years.

Led Zeppelin’s “Celebration Day”: “We Were So Happy We Were Actually Getting It Right”

The members of the band dodged questions about their future but seemed to enjoy each other’s company, and took a lot of pride in their performance as captured in the film. Jimmy Page expressed relief that the show went as well as it did, saying the band was “uncomfortable” with their reunion performances at Live Aid (in 1985) and the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary Concert (in 1988).

Jimmy Page On The Violin Bow: “Whatever Squeaks I Made Sort Of Intrigued Me”

Page used the bow on a few Yardbirds songs: “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor” and “Glimpses” from their 1967 album, “Little Games,” and then on Led Zeppelin’s 1969 self-titled debut (“Dazed And Confused” and “How Many More Times”).

Jimmy Page On Joining The Yardbirds: “I Was Tired Of The Studio Grind”

“I went to see the Yardbirds play at this really stuffy student black-tie event at Cambridge University. The singer, Keith Relf, got quite inebriated and was being really punky. He was really staring down the establishment and put on a magnificent rock and roll performance. He was knocking things over and shouting obscenities at the audience. I really enjoyed myself.” — Jimmy Page
