A genuine musical legend, Jimmy Page was the mastermind behind Led Zeppelin, among the most successful bands in the history of rock 'n' roll. As their leader, producer, principal songwriter and guitarist, Page not only shaped the sound of seventies hard rock but also created a musical and artistic legacy that stands him proudly to this day. Already one of London's most in-demand session musicians, in 1966 he joined the Yardbirds, contributing greatly to the rise of psychedelic and hard rock, thus laying the foundations for the mighty Zep and the worldwide acclaim and multi-platinum sales they enjoyed. When Led Zeppelin dissolved in 1980 after the death of drummer John Bonham, Page carried on--first as a film composer, then as band leader of the Firm and later as a solo artist. During the nineties, his collaborations with former Zeppelin singer Robert Plant laid the groundwork for the group to return one last time in 2007. Since then, Jimmy has played at the Beijing Olympics and, among other awards, received the Kennedy Center Honor. This book is the definitive account of his musical, professional and personal journey. Researched through numerous interviews with colleagues and friends from the sixties to the present day, No Quarter also casts light on one of rock's most mysterious figures, delving into Jimmy's interests in alternative religions and philosophies and his life after the Led Zeppelin bubble burst, and telling the full story of a man many believe to be "the greatest guitarist in the greatest rock band in history."
