Led Zep guitar man Jimmy Page has announced a more “accessible and affordable printing” of a photo autobiography that first came out, on a limited basis, in 2010.

The new edition of ‘Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page’, which is set to be released via Genesis Publications in October, features over 600 handpicked photos, with captions written by Page, which are arranged in a narrative of his life.

Promoting the book, Jimmy says: “I’ve been asked on a number of occasions to do a written book and I thought of the other side of the coin. I thought it would be unique to have an autobiography in photographs, charting my whole musical journey”.

He adds: “I wanted to make it as thorough as possible, so that meant trawling through all the thousands of files that photographers had taken, and pulling from my personal collection as well. It was important to include every milestone along the way, so people who were fans of the music have got a real testament of the times”.

Elsewhere, a talkative Page has been gassing about the chance of his band playing Glastonbury, following Glasto boss Michael Eavis saying he felt “sure” Led Zeppelin were one day going to headline the festival.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny, JP mused: “I haven’t heard about anything [to do with another Led Zepp reunion] since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know, do you? you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow, do you?”

No, you do not.
