What's Next For JIMMY PAGE?

LED ZEPPELIN's Jimmy Page has just finished overseeing the release of deluxe expanded versions of the band's three final albums — "Presence" (1976), "In Through The Out Door" (1979), and "Coda" (1982). With some time finally on his hands, he shared what the future may hold. According to The Pulse Of Radio, Page told Ultimate Classic Rock, "Well, yeah, yeah, because I've been over the last number of years, concentrating on LED ZEPPELIN product. I really felt passionately that all of this studio information should come out and should be there. It's finished."

He added: "Playing the guitar, that's what it is. I'll have the time now to be able to put that passion and energy and focus into playing the guitar."

Page further explained: "Well, I'm going to work on the guitar or guitars plural, because I'm known to play in so many different styles and that's what I am, so I just want to get there and just basically reconnect with all of these things and see what happens. Now that all of the ZEPPELIN stuff has come out, I have the freedom to be able to make new music, manifest new music and be seen to be playing, as opposed to just rumored to be playing."

During the interview, Page was also asked what was his favorite ZEPPELIN song. He said: "They're all favorites. They honestly are, because that's how they were, they were all sort of crafted and they went on the albums because they were all favorites at the time and all very, very different. In the context of everything, I guess 'Good Times, Bad Times', first album, first track, side one, it's going to change everything overnight. You know, it changes drumming, it changes recording processes."
