Cocaine, groupies and searing riffs: A new biography of Jimmy Page | Daily Mail Online

Nothing new in this article, though I’ve yet to read the latest biography…

The occult was certainly one of Page’s fascinations. He was still a schoolboy when he discovered Crowley, once dubbed ‘the wickedest man in the world’ by the British press. At the peak of his interest, Page owned Crowley’s books, manuscripts, the robes in which he had conducted rituals, and his former abode, Boleskine House on the shores of Loch Ness.

    It’s hard to imagine what else there is to learn about Jimmy in relation to his music. I recently finished Martin Power’s bio of Page (No Quarter, The Three Lives of Jimmy Page) and actually enjoyed it regardless of it being unauthorized. And Jimmy’s photo autobiography is pretty amazing, especially the two signed deluxe editions. What I would like to see/read/own/cherish would be a descriptive catalogue of his book, art, and ephemera collection. That would be the real prize for me. I do wonder if he has ever considered having his collection properly archived.
