James Patrick Page, OBE born in Heston, England in the 1940's. Lived near Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. He first was a session player, then joined small bands, then joined Chris Dreja's band The Yardbirds, with Eric Clapton then adding Jeff Beck. After The Yardbirds ended, he found a new project called "The New Yardbirds," consisting of Robert Plant, John Baldwin (a.k.a. John Paul Jones), and John Bonham. They later renamed themselves to Lead Zeppelin, then to Led Zeppelin, thinking we americans might mispronounce it as (lee-d).

In Led Zeppelin, he became one of the greatest guitarists ever, if not the, and in an interview with William S. Burroughs helped define this new hard blues-rock as "Heavy Metal." His famous "Zoso" symbol, consisting his astrological sign the Capricorn, and his religion O.T.O. (Ordo Templis Orientis), is famous with him.

Trademark guitars include: Sunburst Gibson Les Paul 1959, Gibson EDS-1275, the Dragon-theme Fender Telecaster, and the Danelectro guitar.

After the end of Led Zeppelin, he composed the soundtrack to Death Wish II, and later in 2001 used the theme of "Kashmir" for Sean "Diddy" Combs.

He also recieved the Officer of the British Empire (OBE) order by the Queen for his work in Brazil for homeless children. He was made an honorary citizenship of Rio de Janeiro.

His daughter, Scarlet Page, is a photographer for many Pop-Culture magazines.
