A mysterious countdown has recently begun on Jimmypage.com that has many guitarists salivating at the prospect of some kind of anouncement from the master of classic rock guitar. Counting down from 15, the timer is due to expire on the 14th July. Given that it would have been almost impossible for Page to have kept the recording of a new album secret I think we’ll see a new website first before any new material is released. Given the fact that he supervised the remastering of the entire Led Zeppelin discography and the quality of the Led Zeppelin DVD packages in the past I hope we’ll see a website worthy of this musical legend.
Page has mentioned in interviews in the past that he has something big planned so I’m hoping we’ll get a major annoucement when the new website goes live. Jimmy could easily follow the same path as Slash or Carlos Santana and produce a collaborative album. Supernatural was absolutely massive for Carlos Santana and the list of artists lining up to work with Jimmy Page would be practically endless. On the other hand maybe he’ll surprise us all and go for something completely different.
