Jimmy Page is the mastermind and sonic architect behind Led Zeppelin. After making his name as a session guitarist for some of the ’60s biggest bands, Page took over, took apart and completely rebuilt the tattered remains of the Yardbirds in order to create one of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.

In addition to his revolutionary guitar, songwriting and production work, Page helped Led Zeppelin re-write the rules of the music business by taking unprecedented control over how the group’s music was created, packaged and marketed. Together with manager Peter Grant, the group also flipped the concert industry on its head by demanding the lions share of the gate go to the artist.

Following John Bonham’s death and the breakup of Led Zeppelin in 1980, Page’s solo or collaborative live and studio work has arrived only sporadically, and he has spent a considerable amount of time curating his former group’s back catalog.
