Jimmy Page: Magus, Musician, Man

Jimmy Page: Magus, Magician, Man

Entering the middle years of the 1970s, Jimmy Page had a good case to be leading the world's biggest rock group, in a day when such a title was hotly contested and carried a serious cultural cachet. Without ever becoming a household name or a multimedia fixture, Led Zeppelin was an indisputable success within the music industry and among the teeming youth market.

Author George Case has penned the first biography of Led Zeppelin's guitarist Jimmy Page. Although unauthorized, Case has included countless intimate stories about Page and the rest of Led Zeppelin, singer Robert Plant, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones and drummer/percussionist John Bonham.

Jimmy Page: Magus, Musician, Man is an EXCELLENT book that I am sure is the result on thousands of hours of research and piecing together many articles and interviews.

Starting with Page's birth in January 1944 in Heston, George Case paints a very detailed portrait of every facet of Jimmy Page's life, from his days as a session man to being a Yardbird to the twelve years in Led Zeppelin to being a solo artist up through Page's OBE ceremony.

Along with Mick Bonham's John Bonham: The Powerhouse Behind Led Zeppelin and Chris Welch's Peter Grant: The Man Who Led Zeppelin, I recommend George Case's Jimmy Page: Magus, Musician, Man as the only autobiography you will need on Jimmy Page. Now, if only Robert Plant and John Paul Jones would follow suit.
