My long time friend and colleague Guitar World Editor Brad Tolinski has a great new book, Light & Shade: Conversations w. Jimmy Page.

Here's an excerpt: http://bit.ly/VzCDOm

Definitely of interest to a lot of folks here.

The only thing I want here out of Led Zep's mouth is "reunion tour." One more story about the mud-shark and I'm going to be declared unfit to stand trial.

Since it's Brad Tolinski it should be quite an extensive excursion into Page's playing, production and arranging skills as well as stories from the studio, tours etc. It will probably be a very musical tome. It's on my Christmas list already.

Thanks Alan.
I hope it is more than what has been in the magazine ovedr the years. Nothing new from that chapter but I likely read it in the magazine. Plus some responses from people being interviewed become stock responses so they get familiar. Look forward to the read and hope I haven't read it all already over the years.

Kind of like Gregg's response to new ABB music. Stock response that even he seems to be starting to believe.

My copy just arrived yesterday.

Brad put a lot into this over the past two years and I am pretty sure that he has new interviews with Page, but I actually don't know for sure and do not want to give any false info.

Definitely new interviews with others, including one with Paul Rodgers that I read and found really interesting.

It is very musically focused. I think it is going to do really well and I'm very happy for Brad, who has been incredibly supportive of me - and all these ABB stories - for 20 years! I'm proud of the relationship because I don't think too many editorial collaborations last that long.

Finished this last night.

Overall pretty good, although half I have read before in Guitar World articles.

The Chris Dreja section was nice as he give quite the unique perspective of being
in the Yardbirds with Clapton, Beck and Page.

There some fluff. At the end with the short sections on Jimmy's fashion sense and
his astrology. Eh.

Some newer stuff like Al said, with Paul Rodgers was interesting but didn't offer too much.


Overall, it was enjoyable but a bit deja vu at times. If you hadn't read Brad's work before,
then you will enjoy this short tome.

Also, Barney Hoskyns has a new book out about Zeppelin which is next up for me.

It is basically oral accounts from almost all involved: band members, roadies, family,
groupies, but more importantly - the Swan Song employees, esp Steve Weiss.

From what I understand, Page does not come out looking too well from many people.
So it should be an interesting juxtaposition against Brad's book.

About halfway through this and I agree that it has all pretty much been in the magazine over the years. That doesn't make it bad. Just that those who read the magazine over the years have already read it. Much better read for those that haven't.

Nice book and a possible Christmas present for a Zeppelin/Page fan.

I probably have a warped view on several levels, but I think work that has been in the magazine, while obviously not revelatory, has great value in being put together into one volume.

I did not care for the astrology and fashion stuff... One area Brad and I have disagreed on for 20 years. But I think of that as some marshmallow fluff on top of a very substantial cake.

Can't wait to tell you all more about the print version of One Way Out I am working on, but not quite ready....

I agree that putting it all under one cover is a great idea. Ideal for the fan and for those that don't read the magazine. Even many that do would love to revisit the interviews. I read so much that I often re-read things many times. That may be part of my trouble as I may have already read some of this a few times. Plus some of this stuff has been in the magazine a couple of times also.

Yesterday I read the Rolling Stone interview with Jimmy Page in their latest issue. Much of it is probably known but he discussed a lot about Clapton, Jeff Beck and the Yardbirds that I didn't know about. He seemed to dodge a lot of questrions, especially those related to Robert Plant which didn't surprise me at all if you think about his interests.

But a good read if you see it on your local newstand.

I am always a little leary of books from others perspective. Not saying it's not true, but could be warped/tainted/twisted and etc at times.
