Genesis Publication, the makers of the Jimmy Page book, Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page, released last year, threw a release party for their latest release on Tuesday, and Jimmy Page was in attendance.
The party was for the release of Speed of Life a collaboration between David Bowie and photographer Masayoshi Sukita. Jez Coulson was there, and reported on events.
There too, was the BBC, and unlike Coulson, they had a chance to talk to Page.
In the interview, Page says he has "been working on all things musical over the last... couple of years... without necessarily playing." And next up, Page intends to be "getting together with musicians, and just be totally focused... on just that an that alone." He adds that at "my time of life... I much prefer to put all my energies into one thing."
Certainly, Page has talked in the last number of years about new music, playing, touring &tc., but nothing comes about. I'll be sceptical until we hear something more concrete.
The David Bowie book, by the way, retails for £360.00 from Genesis publications.
