Jimmy Page schedules Q&A event in London this month

Jimmy Page will participate in a Q&A session at London’s Cadogan Hall on October 15.

“A Life In Music: Jimmy Page” will see the Led Zeppelin guitarist discuss his photographic autobiography, “Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page”, with The Guardian’s Music Editor Michael Hann.

Tickets cost £20. For more event and tickets details, click here.

Due October 14, the book sold-out of its limited-edition run of 2,500 copies upon its initial release in 2010, becoming the fastest-selling book in Genesis Publications' 40-year history.

Page has chosen photographs representing the most significant moments in his career: from a schoolboy with a rock-a-billy quiff through his extensive work as a session musician; from The Yardbirds through Led Zeppelin, ARMS, The Firm, Outrider, Coverdale & Page and Page & Plant; playing with Roy Harper and The Black Crowes; collaborating with P. Diddy and performing with Leona Lewis at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The guitarist has put pen to paper about his career in this expansive edition. His words take the form of extended captions, which describe and document pivotal moments and events. He has also included visas, photos and stamps from his own passports.

The London event is the first of two Q&A sessions Page is participating in to launch the book.

He will also appear at as the featured interview guest for “Jimmy Page In Conversation”, a sold-out event at the Kaufmann Concert Hall in New York on November 3.

Led Zeppelin will release expanded versions of “Led Zeppelin IV” and “Houses Of The Holy” this month as part of their extensive reissues program.

Due October 28, both albums have been newly remastered by Page and are accompanied by a second disc of companion audio comprised entirely of unreleased music related to that album.
