Thread: JIMMY PAGE On His Next Solo Release: It Will Be 'Everything I Can Muster Up'

Jimmy Page says his first solo release in 30 years will be "a sort of album" that will touch upon all all "the different approaches" that he is known for. The LED ZEPPELIN guitarist told Rolling Stone in a new interview: "I intend to be doing something which obviously will surface as a sort of album somewhere. It'll surface further on down the line; I'm looking forward to doing whatever the project is. But if you think about all the areas that I've attempted, guitar, whether it's acoustic or electric or whatever, all the different approaches that I've done, it's just gonna be an extension of all of that, and that's it. So it's not just acoustic, it's not just electric, it's everything I can muster up."

There's been no release date announced for the upcoming Page album, which will be his first true solo set since "Outrider". That album came out on June 19, 1988 and peaked at No. 26 on The Billboard 200 album chart.

"Outrider" featured LED ZEPPELIN singer Robert Plant co-writing and contributing vocals on the track "The Only One", and Jason Bonham drumming on both the majority of the album and Page's subsequent tour.

LED ZEPPELIN hasn't performed together in more than a decade, having last played London's O2 Arena in December 2007. The concert was part of the Ahmet Ertegun tribute event, which was chronicled on the band's 2012 "Celebration Day" CD and DVD. The set, which featured Jason Bonham subbing for his late father John Bonham on drums, marked Page, Plant and John Paul Jones's first full-scale concert together since John Bonham's 1980 death.




An official LED ZEPPELIN illustrated book, "Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin", will be released in October.

Page has been threatening to release a new album for a number of years now. I will believe it when I hear it. It amazes me how Robert Plant has consistently released new material and Page gives us nothing.


ABBDutchFan - 2/26/2018 at 07:42 PM

Yeah,...whatever. Talking about vague plans. I wonder if this will ever be released let alone actually be recorded.


jszfunk - 2/28/2018 at 12:08 PM

I thought the same as most, he has been talking this for a looooonnnnggg time and mentioned the same thing about doing something "different "years ago too. I love Jimmy , but I have given up hope of any sort of new material from him


JimSheridan - 2/28/2018 at 07:35 PM

Ya gotta wonder.

Factors against anything new coming out:

He does not need the money.
He may realistically fear that whatever he does can't match what he did in the past.
It's tough to find the right singer, someone who could be his new Robert Plant.
He has mainly received indifference for many of his post-Zepp offerings.
The music world overall is moving past interest in classic rock.

However.....

Maybe he has considered the recent deaths of many of his peers and is realizing that his chances to create more while he is alive are dwindling.

From what I have seen, I don't think I would expect anything great from any live playing that Jimmy Page does from here on in. However, I would like to believe that he could still craft some meaningful studio work.

I know he has been talking like this for a while. I can't help but be interested in it, though.

I agree.
Interesting you bring this up, I am just curious to see what your thoughts might be on this.

What you mentioned(some not all might apply to the following) above I have almost compared to the lack of output of Eddie Van Halen over the last 20yrs.
Immense talent, but hardly any output, at least to the general public.

It's a very fitting comparison. Like Page, EVH is a guitar god who has been curiously absent for a good 2 decades.

At least Page has been busy serving up his archives.

On the last tour, Eddie showed that he still has his chops. He should use 'em!

The semi-recent VH live album did not even make a ripple in the pool. I didn't buy it myself....

20 years ago when Van Halen 3 bombed, I think Eddie backed away from the spotlight. In his career he had really tasted failure or rejection before and he didn't know how to react. For a decade fell into a haze and other than the 04 tour with Hagar where he was in bad shape. Eddie became the recluse that occasionally would show up at odd events.

Jimmy is always saying he is going to release something. It would be pretty awesome if him and drummer Bill Ward from Black Sabbath did a project together.

Now that is something I would like to see,even if its just to show ozzy and Sharon that Bill still has the chops.

What, canít he find a black American to rip-off?

It was absolutely an attempt for Jimmy to take over control of the KKK.


hotlantatim - 3/21/2018 at 06:36 PM

I like the Bill Ward idea. How about Jimmy Page, Bill Ward, Audley Freed, Paul Shaffer, Don Was & Ann Wilson record something? No band commitments from any of them...

Was would know how to make it happen...he's the king of good taste and pulling off projects these days. Audley played with Page with the Crowes and multiple times with Was (and not sure Jimmy needs to be the only guitarist in a band at this point). Shaffer is the king of the supergroup concerts lineups and always the adaptable piano/organ guy. Ann has belted out her share of songs written by Jimmy and still sounds great. Figure out how to get John Paul Jones involved on mandolin, keys, bass too.

Ok.....just dreaming.


JimSheridan - 3/23/2018 at 06:33 PM

it's a pretty great dream! I love Bill Ward's idiosyncratic drumming.

I also have not heard JPJ's name in years. What has he been doing?

We saw JPJ about three years ago ,he was part of Dave Rawlings touring band. It was pretty cool. I know he had done production for various bands and artists over the years. I would love to hear him in a band/project with Warren. Producing,playing bass or both.

John Paul Jones was in the David Rawlings Machine in 2013 and 2014. The December 2014 show in Atlanta was one of the best concerts I've ever seen. JPJ is a world class madnolin player (and a good deep voice in the harmonies). DR and JPJ dodged & weaved incredible solos around each other all night long. Here are a couple examples:

JimSheridan - 3/29/2018 at 06:27 PM

I saw JPJ many years ago opening for King Crimson. He really held his own, wowing a crowd that was there to see a prog band with prodigious chops. JPJ played a number of different stringed things, including pedal steel.
