New JIMMY PAGE Music On The Way

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Jimmy Page is working on new music, which might be released before the end of the year. During a chat with BBC Radio, Page said, "I'm just looking forward to making some music and surprising people with it. It won't be just teaming up with lots of people who are [big] names. I've got an idea of something which I've had for a long time and now's the time to do it."

Page remained ambiguous when talking about the still-unnamed project, saying: "I have got other ideas that have been nagging at me for a long long time, I think the way to present music is same picture different frame, and sometimes this frame is quite radical."

Page feels that the 2007 reunion gig setlist as featured in "Celebration Day" reflects the best of ZEPPELIN's back catalogue. "In the '70s when we were touring, y'know, the sets would be a reflection of what we had done in the past, and then what was there on that latest album," he said. "On this we had a chance to have a real retrospective of the career. That's why we arrived at the first number being 'Good Times Bad Times', which was the first track of the first album and then let's see what goes on from there. I think we made a pretty good choice right across the board in the time that we had. Y'know, we paid good attention to it and the pacing of the set was interesting, because with no warm-up gig, we had to get it right."

The last album to feature all new, mainstream Jimmy Page compositions was the 1998 PAGE AND PLANT collection, "Walking Into Clarksdale".

The album's lead single, "Most High", snagged the 1999 Grammy Award for "Best Hard Rock Performance".
