One of my favorite things that you’ve done is the Lucifer Rising soundtrack. That was so different from Led Zeppelin, was it a nice break to be doing something like that?
I had a studio at home, and it got to the point where I was left on my own and got up to mischief. Actually Lucifer Rising, in this trawling through my archive, I came up with the original mix of it, which is really a thrill to find. I had this multitrack and I started messing around myself, playing the instruments, making up loops, putting effects on things. I was really working, I was like a sketch pad. It took on a life of its own, Lucifer Rising. It was really good stuff. It’s pretty intense.
From a fantastic Jimmy Page interview on His New Book, the Velvet Underground and Meeting Burroughs by Luke Turner at http://www.wonderingsound.com/feature/jimmy-page-led-zeppelin-photographic-autobiography-interview

‘I’ve been asked on a number of occasions to do a written book and I thought of the other side of the coin. I thought it would be unique to have an autobiography in photographs.’ – Jimmy Page
