JimmyPage.com

Drupal Version: 
Why does this website deserve to win?: 

JimmyPage.com - the first official website of the legendary guitarist and Led Zeppelin founder - deserves to win this award because it is the coolest Drupal-built music artist website on the internet.

The server-melting launch in July 2011 marked a new milestone in Jimmy Page's extraordinary career; with JimmyPage.com chronicling his rich history in music and unlocking the vaults for the first time ever.

The all-encompassing Live, Photos and Discography sections of the website span a whole host of eras, from Jimmy's early work in the 1960s as a session musician for the likes of The Rolling Stones and Marianne Faithfull, through to the present day.

Conceptualised and curated by Jimmy Page himself, one of the site’s biggest highlights is ‘On This Day’, a daily diary featuring events spanning the entirety of his immense career.

"It’s an interesting concept because every day you are going to have an event from my life and it will go all the way back to me being a teenager," said Jimmy. "It looks random, but it isn’t. I love the idea that there will be an all-new page everyday and nobody will be able to guess what’s coming next."

The HTML, CSS and jQuery-built multimedia homepage takeover includes daily video footage, images and audio clips as well as unseen photos and previously unreleased tracks, demos and home recordings. Each entry is accompanied by a personal anecdote written by Jimmy Page and will be available for just 24 hours. There will be no archiving; if you miss it, it’s gone!

Since launch, Jimmy Page has released two albums exclusively through his official website; one of which, Lucifer Rising, was his first new official release in more than a decade.

JimmyPage.com is the number one destination for every fan of the legend, Jimmy Page.
