Jimmy Page Kicks Off Modeling Career
We may still be waiting for details of Jimmy Page's alleged 2013 solo tour, but we do know of at least one place we'll be able to see the former Led Zeppelin guitarist this year: In the photo spreads for menswear designer John Varvatos' next ad campaign.
Blabbermouth reports that Page met up with rising young axeslinger Gary Clark, Jr. for the shoots, which took place in London at the Rivoli Ballroom. Enthused Clark, "It was an honor to work with John Varvatos on his new campaign and to be paired alongside a legend like Jimmy Page for this shoot."
Varvatos was pretty excited himself -- as he put it in a statement, "Jimmy Page has been a music and fashion icon of mine since 1970. He has been a major influence and I am honored to call Jimmy a friend. Gary Clark Jr. is the real deal — amazing guitar player, singer, songwriter and friend. Having 'The Master' and the 'Young Guitar-Slinger' together in our campaign is a dream come true."
Page and Clark are in good company with the campaign -- previous Varvatos shoots have included Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Slash, and Aerosmith's Joe Perry. You can see more at the company's website.
