Jimmy Page has been interviewed for a new documentary about his former Yardbirds bandmate Jeff Beck.
The documentary is titled “Still On The Run: The Jeff Beck Story” and will be released on May 18 through Eagle Rock Entertainment and the BBC told LedZepNews that it will be broadcast on BBC Four at 9pm UK time on April 27.
The documentary features interviews with Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Slash, Joe Perry, Ronnie Wood, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart, Rod Stewart, and Jennifer Batten.
Page is quoted in the press release for the documentary as saying “he developed a style that’s unique, and that’s pretty magical.”
The Amazon description for the documentary says that “‘Still On The Run – The Jeff Beck Story’ follows his career from early days learning guitar solos with his friend Jimmy Page, through the Yardbirds, the Jeff Beck Group and his multifaceted solo albums. Beck’s fascination with both guitar music and hot rods is explored through interviews at home and in his workshop and his musical journey is illustrated through contributions from many of his fellow musicians and colleagues including Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Jan Hammer, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Slash, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood and more.”
The 108-minute documentary will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and iTunes download. The bonus features are five previously unreleased videos from Beck’s performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007: “Eternity’s Breath,” “Freeway Jam,” “Nadia,” “Led Boots,” “Blue Wind.”
