In bookstores now is Light and Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page. While much of the book, understandably, focuses on Led Zeppelin, the book also features interviews with Page promoting his projects from the past few decades, including his collaborations with Whitesnake’s David Coverdale (in Coverdale/Page), Bad Company’s Paul Rodgers (in The Firm) and Robert Plant.
Page used the bow on a few Yardbirds songs: “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor” and “Glimpses” from their 1967 album, “Little Games,” and then on Led Zeppelin’s 1969 self-titled debut (“Dazed And Confused” and “How Many More Times”). But he wasn’t the first British rock guitarist to take the bow to his axe.
