Jimmy Page's final farewell to Duane Eddy

Jimmy Page's tribute to Steve Albini

Through a post shared on his official Instagram profile, Jimmy Page paid tribute to Steve Albini, who passed away on May 8 after suffering a heart attack while at work at his Chicago studio, Electrical Audio.

Entrusting his tribute to the late artist on social media, who had worked in the recording and mixing phase on Page's 1998 album “Walking into Clarksdale” with Robert Plant, the Led Zeppelin guitarist wrote:

“I was very sad to learn of Steve Albini's passing this week. Robert and I worked with him in 1997 on our album 'Walking Into Clarksdale' a record of which I am still very proud.”

He added:

“Steve and I had a very strong connection, as we all did with that album. And he came into the making with a certain pedigree and experience as one of the world's greatest sound engineers. He loved working with analogue tape, in fact his band was called Shellac. He was very passionate and knowledgeable, really dedicated to the cause during our recording sessions.”

Jimmy Page continued by recalling the other extraordinary works that have seen Albini involved throughout his career, including Nirvana's “In utero” and other projects with Pixies and Bush. β€œHe had an impressive resume and leaves a true legacy,” Page concluded.
