Jimmy Page shares Led Zeppelin 50th anniversary update

Jimmy Page is sharing an update on Led Zeppelin’s 50th anniversary celebrations in a new interview with SiriusXM satellite radio.

The band launched the campaign in September with the release of the remastered soundtrack to the concert film, “The Song Remains The Same”, and followed it up with their first and only official book, “Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin.”

When asked by SiriusXM’s Mark Goodman what fans can expect in the coming months, Page responded: "I've always got things in mind, and I always think of things as a schedule of releases over a period of time. I've never been, actually, any different. And, obviously, I would have ideas of things or projects which could go ahead, but, you know, it all takes time.

“So, at the moment, we've got this [book] out, so that's really brilliant. And who knows what may come further on down the line? I don't know. So I can't really say at this point."

The guitarist will launch a limited-edition series of Jimmy Page signature Telecaster models in January in partnership with Fender guitars; his iconic 1959 Telecaster – known for its two “mirror” and “dragon” designs – helped launch the rocker’s career in The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, and was used to record 1969’s “Led Zeppelin I” along with countless hit songs on world-renowned albums while he was a studio musician.

Formed in London in 1968, Led Zeppelin have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1995.
