Light And Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page

Brad Tolinski

Book Summary

This "oral autobiography" of Jimmy Page, the intensely private mastermind behind Led Zeppelin - one of the most enduring bands in rock history - is the most complete and revelatory portrait of the legendary guitarist ever published. More than 30 years after disbanding in 1980, Led Zeppelin continues to be celebrated for its artistic achievements, broad musical influence, and commercial success. The band's notorious exploits have been chronicled in bestselling books; yet none of the individual members of the band has penned a memoir nor cooperated to any degree with the press or a biographer.  In Light and Shade, Jimmy Page, the band’s most reticent and inscrutable member, opens up to journalist Brad Tolinski, for the first time exploring his remarkable life and musical journey in great depth and intimate detail. Through Page’s own words, Light and Shade presents an unprecedented first-person view of one of the most important musicians of our era.

Dan McAvinchey commentary

Having heard a lot of the stories about Jimmy Page over the past 40 years, I enjoyed reading these interviews with him that chronologically spanned his entire career, from his early studio work, through the present day. He was a true production innovator, and inspired countless guitarists in his long and storied career.
