I originally thought this book would be an in depth and personal view on his life and career. I'm happy to say I was wrong but oh so very right too. Instead of Mr. Page writing about himself, the vast majority of the book is filled with pictures that span from his early childhood until late 2008 or so. Jimmy will give context as to what is going on in a series of pictures but the real story is the pictures themselves, the majority of which I had never seen before. Each page was a joy to look at and I think the book made a much bigger impact by allowing us to live through Page via these pictures than the written word ever could.
If you're a Led Zeppelin or Jimmy Page fan you owe it to yourself to pick this book up. The book itself is very high quality too, the hardcover feels great and the individual pages are thick and have a great feeling to them as well.
I was really on the fence about getting this book. I've pretty much learned and seen all there is to know about the man over 35+ years. This book is essentially as Page a describes a "Photographic Autobiography" with very brief descriptions and concert dates. Don't expect any in depth reflection beyond pictures that capture the feel of the times. ie: let the images do the talking. I would not expect someone who was not an absolute Page fan to be taken by it. With that said, its a good book end close for anyone who was inspired to play guitar.
The book goes through his entire career. My footnote interest - I got my 1st chance to so Page perform in concert with "the Firm" - Concert date concisely noted as March 16 1985: Pacific Amphitheater (California).
The book visually catalogs a man in transition over time, well beyond Zeppelin. ie:The passing of John Bonham is textual and moves quickly to post Zeppelin on the next page. The book captures the cool and the often garish fashion and hair of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's and beyond. Reunions, charity concerts, collaborations, life achievement awards. It's all there. If you've read enough on Page over the years, these pictures actually fill in the narrative well.
