Jimmy Page: New Record, New Tour
Jimmy Page has perhaps been the least active member of Led Zeppelin since the band's dissolution in 1980. While Robert Plant and John Paul Jones have consistently worked on solo projects since that time, Page's musical endeavours in the past 30 years have been, at best, sporadic. All of that is set to change however, thanks to the renewed vigour felt by the guitarist after the release of Led Zeppelin's "Celebration Day" movie. As ClassicRock notes, Zep's head honcho has been energised to get back to work, having told BBC6Music: "I'm starting to work next year, to be seen to be playing live. I'll definitely be doing an album at that point in time. "I want to be playing - I want to be out there playing. That's what you'll understand from seeing this." Jimmy Page has only released one solo album proper since Led Zeppelin's dissolution; 1988's Outrider. Apart from that, he has sound tracked two movies, and formed two short lived supergroups The Firm with Free's Paul Rogers, and Coverdale/Page, featuring the aforementioned Whitesnake man. Page also reunited with Led Zep front man Robert Plant for 1995's Unledded project which featured reworked versions of Zeppelin classics. Under the Page/Plant moniker, the band toured until 1998. Led Zeppelin's latest concert film "Celebration Day" was released in cinemas last night. The movie, directed by Dick Carruthers, was a document of the band's reunion performance at the O2 arena from 2007. The film will be released on CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, digital and vinyl formats on November 19th. DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the film will also feature bonus footage from the band's rehearsals at Shepperton studios Excited for the return of Jimmy Page? Let us know in the comments.
