Jimmy Page Chat on AOL, Nov 30, 1999

AOLiveMC5: Welcome, Jimmy Page. It is a pleasure to welcome you this evening.

Jimmy Page: Good evening to the worldwide audience and the global village of the Internet.

Question: Jimmy, have you ever seen any of the Led Zeppelin tribute bands, and how do you feel about them?

Jimmy Page: No, I actually haven’t. I haven’t managed to see any of them. I did [a] while back in the ’70s. I’ve heard about the tribute bands, but no, I haven’t seen one. There’s one called Cinnamon in Japan and Fred Zeppelin and all sorts of plays on words. If I walked into the audience, they would probably tear me to bits.

Question: Why do you feel the music of Led Zeppelin is so enduring?

Jimmy Page: Because I think at the time it was recorded, we didn’t have the corporate pressure laid on us as we recorded each album. So because of that, we recorded the music that was coming out at that point and time relative to where we were at that point in time. After the first album, the second album was recorded on the road and had that live feel about it.

Page Delves into Led Zeppelin's Rich Past, Guitar World Online, 1997

Taken from Guitar World Online

In this historic multi-part interview, Jimmy Page delves into Led Zeppelin’s rich past-album by album.

By Brad Tolinski with Greg DiBenedetto

Okay, I’m ready,” says Jimmy Page, clapping his hands together with a loud smack. “What are we going to talk about this time? Zeppelin? Again? Oh, gawd, didn’t we already do this?” he whines, rolling his black eyes skyward. “I’m getting a severe case of déjà vu. Well, all right. Get out your surgeon’s masks and thumb screws. I’m ready for dissection.”

In the past, a little of Pagey’s sarcasm would have sent the most hardened music journalist scurrying over the hills and far away. But it is clear from his mock outrage that the god of guitar thunder is not really throwing lightning bolts-he is merely teasing. Despite his protest, one gets the feeling that there is nothing in the world that he would rather discuss than his groundbreaking work with rock’s most mythic outfit, Led Zeppelin.
