What is Jimmy Page’s Net Worth?
Jimmy Page is an English guitarist, songwriter, and record producer who has a net worth of $180 million. Jimmy Page is most known for being the founding member of Led Zeppelin, one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
James Patrick Page was born in the London suburb of Heston, England, on January 9, 1944. His mother was a doctor’s secretary, while his father oversaw the hiring process at a facility that made plastic coatings. In 1952, the family relocated to Epsom in Surrey before going to Feltham.
He first went to Epsom County Pound Lane Primary School there before moving on to Ewell County Secondary School. When he was 12 years old, he started learning how to play the guitar. Although he took a few lessons, he was primarily self-taught and practiced by listening to recordings and attempting to duplicate the chords.
Page took part in the “All Your Own” talent show when he was 13 years old. In 1957, their performance, which was shown on BB1, featured him as a member of a skiffle quartet, a kind of music that was popular at the time in England. At age 15, he ultimately decided to drop out of school to focus on his music career.
In the 1960s, Page began his career as a session guitarist in a London recording studio. During that period, he collaborated with a number of well-known British singing groups. In 1965, he was employed as an A&R manager and producer by the newly established Immediate Records company.
He worked with musicians including John Mayall, Nico, Chris Farlowe, and Clapton while there, either producing or playing their songs. He joined The Yard Birds in 1966, a band that had some success but not much. But it was after he started Led Zeppelin that he gained genuine stardom.
In 1968, Led Zeppelin was created when his band, the Yard Birds, changed their lineup and became known as the New Yard Birds. The group’s members included drummer John Bonham, bassist John Paul Jones, and vocalist Robert Plant, in addition to Page (guitar).
They are the second-best-selling band in the US and among the top groups in history in terms of sales. In the US Billboard album chart, each of their albums debuted in the Top 10. Both the single “Stairway to Heaven” and the album “Led Zeppelin IV” from 1971 are regarded as important and well-liked pieces of rock music.
The band went on to sell more than 111 million albums, making them one of the best-selling musical acts of all time. A large portion of the band’s music was composed by Page. Following the death of their drummer Bonham in 1980, the band disbanded, but they eventually came back together multiple times.
Tony Thompson and Phil Collins both filled in as the drummer at the 1985 Live Aid concert, which was one such instance. Another noteworthy reunion for Led Zeppelin occurred in 2007 at a benefit performance at London’s O2 Arena. There was a huge demand for the show’s tickets, with 20 million internet requests being made.
The “Highest Demand for Tickets for One Music Concert” record was set in 2009 thanks to this. Since collaborating with Roy Harper on his debut album, “Whatever Happened to Jugula?” in 1985, Page has recorded a number of studio albums, either as a solo artist or with other musicians.
After that, Page and the band The Firm recorded the albums “The Firm” in 1985 and “Mean Business” in 1986, and they both went on tour to promote them. In 1988, he released the solo album “Outrider,” to which Plant contributed. In the Billboard 200 chart, his album “Coverdale-Page” peaked at No. 5 in 1993. Walking Into Clarksdale, a well-known album by Page and Robert Plant was published in 1998.
According to Allmusic, Page is “without a doubt one of the all-time most important, influential, and varied guitarists and songwriters in rock history. He was named ninth on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time in 2003.
He has also received two inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, one each for his work with Led Zeppelin and The Yard Birds. Many in the music business think that since the 1970s, Jimmy Page has had a consistent and good influence on all rock acts.
From 1970 to the beginning of the 1980s, Page dated the French supermodel Charlotte Martin. They conceived a girl they named Scarlet Page. Page then wed Patricia Ecker, a model, and waiter, from 1986 to 1995. James Patrick Page is the name of the boy they had together.
Later on, he met Jimena Gómez-Paratcha in Brazil while on the No Quarter tour. In addition to adopting Gómez-eldest Paratcha’s daughter Jana, Page and Gómez-Paratcha share two children: Zofia Jade and Ashen Josan. In 2008, they got divorced. Scarlett Sabet, a poet and actress, and Page have been dating since 2014.
Page was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2005 in honor of his charitable work with Task Brazil and Action For Brazil’s Children’s Trust. Additional accolades and recognitions he has received include the annual Kennedy Center Honors from President Barack Obama in December 2012 and an Honorary Doctorate Degree from the Berklee College of Music in 2014.
Jimmy Page has owned a lot of homes. He bought the River Boathouse in Pangbourne, Berkshire, in 1967, and he lived there until 1973. He bought the Tower House from Richard Harris in 1972. William Burges was the designer of this building. He has also owned the Boleskine House (from the early 1970s to the early 1990s), the Mill House near Windsor (from 1980 to 2004), and Plumpton Place in Sussex.
