Fans Fume Over Page Book Price

A lot of Led Zeppelin fans are fuming over the limited availability and steep price of Jimmy Page by Jimmy Page, a leather bound 500+ page book about the former Zep guitarist.  Each of the 2,500 copies personally signed by Page is being offered for a price close to $700.  Resentment is not limited to the price and availability of the book.  Many fans say the book amounts to little more than a photo album. Page himself describes it as a '...photographic autobiography'.  The fact that many of the more than 700 pictures included in the book come from Jimmy's private collection and have never been published is not enough to justify the price in the opinion of some.  Critical comments from disappointed fans take aim at Page for agreeing to do a book only well-off collectors can afford.  One noted online 'For that price he's better deliver it to my house and read it to me', while another slammed Page for pricing the book beyond the reach of '...we mere mortals, who helped make him and support him when he was less well off'.  The better off who want to get off by having a personally signed copy of the book to show off can still order one.  The limited edition Genesis publication date is Sept. 27.
