Based on extensive interviews conducted with the guitarist/producer over the past 20 years, Light and Shade encompasses Page's entire career, beginning with his early years as England's top session guitarist when he worked with artists ranging from Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, and Burt Bacharach to the Kinks, The Who, and Eric Clapton. Page speaks frankly about his decadent yet immensely creative years in Led Zeppelin, his synergistic relationships with band members Robert Plant, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones, and his notable post-Zeppelin pursuits. While examining every major track recorded by Zeppelin, including "Stairway to Heaven", "Whole Lotta Love", and "Kashmir", Page reflects on the band's sensational tours, the filming of the concert movie The Song Remains the Same, his fascination with the occult, meeting Elvis Presley, and the making of the rock masterpiece Led Zeppelin IV, about which he offers a complete behind-the-scenes account. Additionally, the book is peppered with conversations between Page and other guitar greats, including his childhood friend Jeff Beck and hipster icon Jack White.
Through Page's own words, Light and Shade presents an unprecedented first-person view of one of the most important musicians of our era.

Production History, FY!
As a 10yr old diehard Led Zeppelin fan in 1973, as a 12yr old Page FanGirl in 1975, thanks to much older sisters who I was able to steal albums from. And a father who thought a 10 yr girl should get rid of hand me down record player for a new STERO for her birthday....the marriage was sealed. Any info I could get was gold...in the days of NO google, we just had Creem, Circus, Rolling Stone and The encyclopedia of Rock & Roll. This audible book with all of its history and production info was a wet dream
