Thursday, July 14th 2011 marks the much-anticipated launch of JimmyPage.com, the first official website of Led Zeppelin's legendary guitarist and founder, Jimmy Page.
Conceptualised and curated by Jimmy Page himself, one of the site's biggest highlights is 'On This Day', a daily diary featuring events spanning the entirety of his immense career, from the 1960's to the present day. This multimedia feast includes video footage, images and audio clips as well as unseen photos and previously unreleased tracks, demos and home recordings.
Each entry is accompanied by a personal anecdote of Jimmy's and will be available for just 24 hours. There will be no archiving; if you miss it, it's gone…
Forthcoming features in the near future include an overview of Jimmy Page's vast back catalogue, including personal critiques by the man himself, and an online shop retailing collectible and limited edition items such as high-quality fine art prints signed by both Jimmy and the photographer, plus some exciting and exclusive musical releases.
"I've had the domain name for a number of years,” said Jimmy. “I've just been sitting on it and a number of people had made approaches about setting something up and it got to a point that it felt it was the right time to put the website together."
“I think this is the ideal vehicle to present my past, present and future work,” added Page.
JimmyPage.com is built using the Drupal open source platform and is optimized for modern browsers for a richer, quicker user experience. It has been produced and designed by Jimmy Page and ie:music, developed by Deeson Group and hosted by Acquia.
