A brand new interview with LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page will air on the October 8 episode of "CBS This Morning" between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. EDT.
The interview, which was conducted by CBS News foreign correspondent Charlie D'Agata, was recorded on September 24 at the National Portrait Gallery in London, where LED ZEPPELIN held an event to promote the band's upcoming official photo book.
Due on October 9, "Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin" is the first and only official illustrated book by the band. It is a unique collaboration between Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, who have given Reel Art Press unrestricted access to the LED ZEPPELIN archive.
Commemorating 50 years since their formation, this 400-page chronology spans half a century of the band's unparalleled career. It comprises hundreds of carefully curated images and artworks personally selected by the band, from the iconic to the unseen. To accompany the visual journey, the bandmembers have written their own exclusive annotations.
This exceptional book includes contributions from all the major photographers who captured the band throughout their career, including Dick Barnatt, Chris Dreja, Carl Dunn, Bob Gruen, Elliott Erwitt, Ross Halfin, Jeffrey Mayer, Neal Preston, Ron Raffaelli, Pennie Smith, David Stratford, Dominique Tarlé and Michael Zagaris, along with artworks by design group Hipgnosis, the Atlantic Records archives and photographs from the band's personal collections.
Page told The Pulse Of Radio that ZEPPELIN's initial influences from across the Atlantic solidified the type of music they would create over the years. "The fact is, all four of us, were so influenced by American music, and for me, the music that I was hearing in the sort of '50s over here, it was all a reinterpretation of what was going on in America," he said. "So we, sort of, had this American music, sort of coming in to us, and we were accessing it through the radio and records. That's a major part of why we became what we were — which is musicians and became totally seduced by this whole movement in music."
