Jimmy Page’s recent time spent in Abbey Road Studios with his seventies live rig and a music producer was for a video that will be featured in a museum exhibit next year.
Page was photographed playing a Les Paul guitar in Abbey Road Studios, and LedZepNews reported that a music producer friend of Page confirmed that the two-day session was recorded.

Now, that music producer has said that the session was for a video that will be used in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York’s upcoming exhibition of rock music instruments, stage gear and outfits.
Perry Margouleff, a music producer and friend of Page who oversaw the session, said in a Facebook post this week that the two-day session was connected to the “Play It Loud: Instruments Of Rock And Roll” exhibition which is scheduled to open on April 8, 2019.
The exhibition will feature Page’s hand-made dragon suit, but it’s not yet confirmed if any of Page’s guitar or live amplification rig will be used.
A photo posted by Page’s daughter, Scarlet Page, suggests that Page’s live rig may be part of the exhibition.
The exhibit will move to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November 2019.
