A song of Elvis Presley determined Jimmy Page to learn playing the guitar and marked the beginning of his career. “Baby Let’s Play House” was the title of this magic song that changed his life. Other musicians that influenced his career path were Scotty Moore and James Burton.
Page tried to start a band, but it was quite difficult to find people able to play on a regular basis. He initially worked as a guitarist in London, at studio sessions. In 1966, he became a member of “The Yardbirds”, a band with which he played for two years. He only later founded “Led Zeppelin”, the group that brought him worldwide fame and later became the main source of the artist's net worth.
Over 300 million copies of the albums issued by Led Zeppelin have been sold worldwide so far, turning the band into the second best selling group in the United States. Most of the band’s albums made it to the Top 10, and six of them reached the first position of the Billboard charts, so the immense success Led Zeppelin came to enjoy in the United States and everywhere in the world throughout the years did not surprise anyone.
Jimmy Page net worth is currently estimated at $125 million, reflecting his success as a musician, composer, guitarist and songwriter. The artist is considered one of the strongest artistic personalities, having heavily influenced, not only the industry of rock music, but also the lives of his millions of critics and fans, some of whom did not hesitate to travel around the world to see him perform.
As a recognition of his merits, Page made it to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice – the first time as a member of “The Yardbirds” and the second time as a member of “Led Zeppelin”. This is one of the most important awards a rocker can hope to receive, a well-deserved one for the artist who wrote music history and still shapes the destinies of many young players dreaming of success.
