Jimmy Page autographed Concert ticket Sex Pistols 2007 | Led Zeppelin. Signed on the rear reading: Steve, Rock On, Jimmy Page.
Musician, songwriter, producer. Born James Patrick Page on January 9, 1944, in Heston, England. He was inspired by rock star Elvis Presley’s “Baby Let’s Play House” to take up the guitar at the age of 13. As a teenager, Page joined his first band, Neil Christian & the Crusaders. He toured with the group for a time, but he had to leave after suffering from a glandular fever.
After a stint at art school, Page returned to music. He then became a session musician and a producer, working in England’s thriving rock scene with such acts as the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, and the Who. In 1965, Page was asked to join the Yardbirds, a blues-influenced rock band, which had just scored a big hit with “For Your Love.” The band wanted him to take over for Eric Clapton, who left the group for John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. Page turned them down and recommended fellow session musician and legendary guitarist-in-the-making Jeff Beck. The Yardbirds sought out Page again the following year, and he finally agreed to become a band member.

Led Zeppelin Autographs
Quickly renaming themselves Led Zeppelin, the band toured the United States as the opening act for the American rock group Vanilla Fudge. They released their first album, Led Zeppelin I in 1969, which earned mixed reviews. As John Mendelsohn wrote in Rolling Stone magazine; “jimmy page autographed concert ticket, around whom the Zeppelin revolves, is, admittedly; an extraordinarily proficient blues guitarist and explorer of his instrument’s electronic capabilities. Unfortunately, he is also a very limited producer and a writer of weak, unimaginative songs; and the Zeppelin album suffers from his having both produced it and written most of it (alone or in combination with his accomplices in the group).” While critics may not have been thrilled by their work, music fans enjoyed such tracks as the now classic “Dazed and Confused.” Their songs showcased Page’s skills as a musician, often featuring his intense guitar riffs.
Led Zeppelin soon developed a strong following. Music fans really enjoyed the band’s hard rock and heavy metal sound. Their second album, the aptly titled Led Zeppelin II (1969); featured “Whole Lotta Love,” “Ramble On,” and “Heartbreaker.” “Whole Lotta Love” reached the No. 4 spot on the pop charts, and the album reached the top of the charts by year’s end. Again, Page worked behind the scenes, serving as producer for the recording. He also wrote or helped to write the music for many of the band’s songs while Plant served as the group’s main lyricist.
In 1970, Led Zeppelin released the more folk-influenced Led Zeppelin III. The single, “Immigrant Song,” became the band’s latest hit. Many critics saw the group’s fourth album, however, as their best work. This 1971 untitled work is sometimes called the Runes Album for the symbols on the cover; which reflected Page’s interest in the occult. The album offered listeners such songs as the legendary “Stairway to Heaven,” which became one of the most requested rock songs of all time despite its startling 8-minute length. “Black Dog” and “Rock and Roll” were other significant tracks from that album.

Page then teamed up with The Black Crowes in 1999 for a concert in England that led to a highly praised U.S. tour with the band. The concerts were produced into a live album called Live at the Greek the following year. He planned on touring with the Black Crowes that year, but he had to back out after hurting his back.
In 2005, jimmy page autographed concert ticket received an important honour for his charitable work. Queen Elizabeth II made him an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for helping to found Action for Brazil’s Children Trust. The charity, established by jimmy page autographed concert ticket and his second wife Jimena; also operates a shelter for street children called Casa Jimmy. The trust also supports local Brazilian organizations that provide education and other assistance to kids in need.
Returning to music, Page helped revive Led Zeppelin in 2007 for a special benefit show for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, named for the late co-founder of Atlantic Records. Tickets sold out quickly for the first appearance of Led Zeppelin in 19 years; (with Jason Bonham again filling in for his late father on drums). The concert held on December 10 at London’s O2 Arena; and it proved to be a triumphant return for the famous 70s supergroup. Critics raved about their show, which lasted more than two hours. Rolling Stone had high praise for Page; writing he “was a continual shock on guitar, mostly because he has played so little in public for the past decade. In addition, at sixty-three, Page is undiminished in his sorcerer’s mix of reckless ferocity—stammering runs, strangled howls, granite-block chords—and guitar-army wow.” Rumours swirled about a possible Led Zeppelin autographs reunion.
