Jimmy Page reflects on Led Zeppelin's legacy and its sound

NEW YORK — When Jimmy Page was young, he had already developed such an inseparable relationship with his guitar that school officials would often confiscate it.

Now some of the instruments that he used in Led Zeppelin are on display in an exhibition called "Play It Loud" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Seven of Page's guitars have been loaned to the exhibit, alongside dozens of guitars, drums and memorabilia from such legends as Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and John Lennon.

Asked why the Led Zeppelin catalogue has endured so long, Page says it has "so many different styles and moods and it's very passionate. And it also very gentle. And it's very hard. And it's extremely dynamic."
