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.
Brad Tolinski has been the editor-in-chief of Guitar World, the world's best-selling magazine for musicians, for more than two decades. He has interviewed and profiled most of popular music's greatest guitarists, including Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Eddie Van Halen, Jack White and Jeff Beck. He is the author of several books, including Guitar World Presents Van Halen and Guitar World Presents Metallica. Winner of the prestigious Audie Award for his recording of Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic by Gordon S. Wood, veteran actor Robert Fass is equally at home in a wide variety of styles, genres, characters, and dialects. A four-time Audie Award nominee with over sixty audiobooks to his credit, Robert has also earned multiple Earphones Awards, including for his narration of Francisco Goldman's novel Say Her Name, which was named one of the Best Audiobooks of 2011 by AudioFile magazine. Robert has given voice to modern and classic fiction writers alike, including Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, Isaac Asimov, Jeffrey Deaver, and John Steinbeck, plus nonfiction works in history, health, journalism, and business. British narrator John Lee has read audiobooks in almost every conceivable genre, from Charles Dickens to Patrick O'Brian, and from the very real life of Napoleon to the entirely imagined lives of sorcerers and swashbucklers. He has won numerous Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones Awards, and he was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile in 2009. Lee is also an accomplished stage actor and wrote and coproduced the feature films Breathing Hard and Forfeit.
"By shining a light on the shadowy Page, Tolinski has created a must-have for any Led Zeppelin fan or guitar player." ---Publishers Weekly
