Jimmy Page on the 1988 ‘Outrider’ Album, “I was surprised to be nominated for a Grammy”

Jimmy Page: I was surprised to be nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Rock Performance for the track Writes of Winter from the Outrider album and, on this day in 1989, the awards took place.

Unsurprisingly, I didn’t win – but it had been the first Grammy nomination that I had received – and that included the work in Led Zeppelin.

Released: June 19, 1988
The album peaked @ #26 on the Billboard 200 and was certified GOLD, for selling in excess of 500,000 copies in the US alone, on August 23, 1988.
