A recently rediscovered interview featuring a 19 year old Jimmy Page, just over a year into his career as a session musician, from the ITV News Archives.

So far this is the only interview we’ve found with Jimmy between his skiffle playing days and the Yardbirds.

Jimmy Page photographed by Eddie Kramer at Olympic Studios in London, 1967. 

“Even though Page was in the Yardbirds, he was still the hot young session player on the London scene in ‘67 prior to the formation of Led Zeppelin. On this particular session we were recording the solo for "Hurdy Gurdy Man” which became a huge hit for Donovan.“
