While the legendary rock icons Led Zeppelin have been the subject of countless tomes (including the infamous 1985 alleged “tell-all,” Hammer of the Gods), the upcoming photo autobiography from guitarist Jimmy Page will be the first book from an actual member of the band.
Simply titled Jimmy Page, the book will combine Page’s own words with 600 handpicked photos to create “the definitive visual and historical record” of the famed guitar player.
“I’ve been asked on a number of occasions to do a written book and I thought of the other side of the coin. I thought it would be unique to have an autobiography in photographs, charting my whole musical journey,” Page said in a press release. “It was important to include every milestone along the way, so people who were fans of the music have got a real testament of the times. The tour schedules, passport stamps, working visas and memorabilia really make up a complete picture, which just keeps unfolding as you turn each page of the book.”
