Aleister Crowley bought Boleskine House in 1899 with the express purpose of performing an elaborate magickal ritual there. Part of this ceremony involved summoning demonic entities and binding them with the goal of removing their negative influences from the magician’s life. This sounds sketchy already because, regardless of what any magician tells you, demons cannot be controlled. The ritual and its aftermath is where much of the present-day Boleskine legend comes from.

However, this is precisely what made Boleskine House so appealing to Jimmy Page. If you’ve got the cash and are that much into Crowley, how could you not want such an intriguing piece of property? Jimmy Page became the owner of Boleskine House in 1970 just as Zeppelin was beginning to enjoy major success. Previous to that we know he had been gathering Crowley artifacts such as old manuscripts, bits and pieces of clothing such as robes and basically anything else he could get his hands on. To be in possession of such a...

As you know, rock concerts are exciting, frenetic, and some would even say orgiastic events. The scientific community is well aware of the potential consciousness altering effects that music can have. However, the kind of music and more specifically the harmonics involved will have a significant impact on the type of experience the listener has. Everything comes down to vibration and music creates ripples that call out to the more subtle realities around us. The density of the musical vibration will correlate with the quality of the dimension the music taps into.

Like attracts like and the type of music being played at a concert will connect to the worlds and the entities contained therein which match that frequency. So basically, rock concerts attract flesh and blood human fans as well as nonphysical energies (ghosts, spirits, etc.) that are pulled through the veil which is unlocked by the vibration of the music.

Now I’m not here to pass judgment and say that ‘negative’ energies flock t...

Page had the ZoSo sigil on his performance clothing and equipment and since he confirmed his practice of Talismanic Magick one can surmise that he ‘charged’ it with his own personal intentions. He could have used it for protection and/or as a magnet for the band’s success. (Yes, dark energies can help you but it usually comes at a price.)

The advantage of being in front of thousands of people on a regular basis is that the talisman’s effectiveness would be significantly amplified by the power of the subconscious minds of those watching.

You don’t have to consciously know what ZoSo means to Jimmy Page to help him fortify this occult magnet/shield. There are so many powerful variables at play here. The vibration of the music would open up the auric fields of those in attendance and then their own personal attachment to the music would feed energy through to the stage; through to JP.

Think about it; they are at a live Zeppelin concert watching their heroes play in person; right in front of t...

Plant often gets snippy when journalists ask him about another tour as Zeppelin. It's been estimated that a reunion could bring in over a billion dollars! Plant goes on about how he doesn’t want to be a ‘jukebox’ and that stadium rock on this level is overly commercialized soul-robbing rubbish, etc.

Sure, he's got plenty of money and is in a much better position financially than many of the old bands from the 70's and 80's replenishing their bank accounts with nostalgia tours. However, these are not the real reasons he doesn't want to tour as Zeppelin again. And touring specifically as Zeppelin is a very important detail. Why?

There is a telling clue here and it’s related to one of the (many) sputtering almost-reunions the band had. Zeppelin got back together for the 1985 Live Aid benefit concert in Philadelphia. There wasn’t much time to rehearse and it was a decidedly poor performance but Plant said he was drunk on it all and missed the rush of singing in front of a huge audience. It w...

Anger later stated that he'd been unable to reach Page for months and that the rock star’s dedication to the project had obviously waned. Additional griping from the filmmaker included that JP was behaving contradictory to the teachings of their mutual hero Aleister Crowley and that his demeanor was akin to a ‘lunar landscape’.

He said that communicating with Page was like trying to speak through thick plate glass. Anger went on to say that JP was dried up as a musician and didn’t have anything left creatively, etc. You know; the usual stuff you say to someone when you're pissed at them. He also alluded to Page's heroin addiction by referencing his 'affair with the white lady' and saying his behavior was very Jekyll and Hyde.

Either way, Page had the upper hand as he didn't need this pet project with a tempestuous character like Anger. It is important to note that Page did indeed produce over twenty minutes of music for the soundtrack but Anger said it wasn’t enough and that what was pre...

If you recall from an earlier chapter, Do What Thou Wilt was pressed into the outtro groove of Led Zeppelin III under JP’s direction. This phrase was obviously very important to JP and he took the meaning of it quite seriously. The title of the song by Eddie and the Hot Rod was Do Anything You Wanna Do which is exactly how this Crowley phrase is most often misinterpreted.

The song was released on July 29th, 1977 just days after Robert Plant’s son died. Can you imagine how pissed off Jimmy Page must have been? Look at the timing. Led Zeppelin had just come off a rough, tragedy-laden tour and the band’s future was up in the air. Then this flippant song is released rubbing salt into JP’s wounds.

Do What Thou Wilt basically means find your true purpose and put all of your energy into it versus wasting your life on the goals and desires society imposes on you which just creates misery. It doesn’t mean do anything you want regardless of the consequences or who you might hurt in the process. Do...

Although Anger fired Page I’m sure he felt marooned by JP’s waning interest in a project that was extremely important to him. Some say that a tortured life is far, far worse than the prospect of death. Maybe that was Anger’s plan for Jimmy Page all along; to go on hurting him…a statue of gold, remember?

The purpose of this chapter is to demonstrate that the Led Zeppelin Curse, whatever its origin may be, didn’t complete its objective on September 25th, 1980 but lives on to torment Jimmy Page. He may be incredibly wealthy and famous but JP has been in purgatory since Zeppelin crashed. He’s been unable to move forward (to any significant degree) creatively and all of his attempts to bring the remaining members of the group back together have sputtered and failed.

Following John Bonham’s death Page went into seclusion, continued his heroin habit and then putted about for years, getting involved in small projects here and there. For someone like Jimmy Page, a music industry veteran, this is...

When they finally got back on the road the bad luck continued. Led Zeppelin’s 1977 North American tour was their eleventh and final tour on that side of the pond. Performances were scheduled to commence on 27 February in Texas but Plant contracted laryngitis and the tour was delayed for a month. It ultimately kicked off on April 1st which is not exactly a lucky date.

Because of the initial delay, all of the band’s equipment had already been shipped to America which left them unable to rehearse and they were understandably rusty. Jimmy Page hadn’t played his guitar for over a month and said he was terrified to go out onstage. As an aside; JP wore his custom-made white silk dragon suit on this tour. The famous outfit was also known as the ‘Poppy White Dragon Suit’ likely coined due to Page’s raging heroin addiction which we’ll discuss in a few moments.

However, despite the first couple of setbacks this turned out to be one of Zeppelin’s most successful tours ever as they broke both financi...

The event that crystallized the Led Zeppelin Curse took place on September 25th, 1980. While rehearsals were underway for a comeback North American tour, John Bonham died in his sleep. He choked on his own vomit after a day-long drinking binge. Like photographer Philip Hale, Bonham died in one of Page’s homes. This time it was the Old Mill House in Clewer, Windsor.

Could these be sacrifices claimed by the demons? Was the occultic energy possibly seeking payment for JP’s protection or was it Kenneth Anger’s curse? Another curious synchronicity was that Benji Lefevre, the Zeppelin assistant and sound technician, was the one who found Bonham dead. If you recall, Lefevre accompanied Jimmy Page to the Abbey of Thelema in Sicily back in 1975. I’m not suggesting anything except that magick and synchronicity go hand-in-hand. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions there.

The media seized upon Page’s occult connections and of course, as they always do, twisted the truth to sensationalize things. T...

After their fallout, when asked if he felt vindictive towards Jimmy Page, Anger responded 'you bet I do; I'm not a Christian turn the other cheek kind.' He also reportedly said with a smile, 'In fact, I'm all ready to throw a Kenneth Anger curse.'

That quote says a lot about Anger; no pun intended. This guy is full of ego and vitriol. He had also been described as an impulsive nut job that could fly off the handle in the blink of an eye. This is all indicative of a person with demonic attachment; someone who has practiced dark rituals and has all sorts of creepy stuff in their energy field. However, I’m not judging Kenneth Anger as I've got firsthand experience with this and know the signs all too well. He’s obviously a talented artist but messing with the occult usually gets the better of everyone.

Anger bitterly recalled that ‘he and Charlotte (JP’s girlfriend) had so many servants yet they would never offer me a cup of tea or a sandwich which is such a mistake on their part because I...

'As we previously discussed, the main series of Zeppelin’s public bad luck started with Robert Plant’s car accident in 1975 but that was before Anger’s Curse of King Midas on Jimmy Page. I think Anger’s general involvement with Page starting in 1971 began a slow buildup of chaos energy and the dam began to crack and ultimately broke with the 1975 car crash. His curse after being ejected from Jimmy Page’s home in 1976 just expedited what was already happening energetically with the band due to his earlier involvement. It was all downhill for Zeppelin from there.

Fame and all that comes with it draws in massive amounts of psychic energy and those who seek to get close to the famous get a hit, if you will, of that juice and it can become addictive. People that know how to harness and manipulate psychic vibrations, people like Kenneth Anger, can tap into the pool of energy that rock stars like Zeppelin have around them and use it as a sort of fuel; akin to vampirism. Anger was very clever i...

Studying the occult is one thing; many people research magick without actually practicing it. I’ll bet that the ones who research but do not cross the threshold into practice do so because of fear and/or the idea that magick could not possibly work. However, anyone that spends time reading up on this stuff does wonder what would happen if they actually performed a ritual; even a small quick one. Wouldn’t you be tempted? Exactly! But the possibility of opening up Pandora’s Box and unleashing something that you couldn’t easily get rid of is an understandable deterrent. However, as they say about the cat, curiosity gets the best of us. With youth comes the feeling of invincibility; which gives birth to risks not fully comprehended.

Even though Jimmy Page has been elusive when it comes to discussing his occult studies, he has gone so far as to state during an interview when asked about this-  ‘I was living it. That’s all there is to it. It was my life - that fusion of magick and music.’ Whe...

Among the biggest smoking guns regarding Zeppelin’s occult involvement, which is really Jimmy Page’s occult involvement, would be their third and fourth albums. The reason I say JP’s occult involvement is because up until the tragedy of 1977 (which will be elaborated on later) JP was completely in charge creatively. The other guys were mainly along for the ride and although their input was solicited and appreciated, JP always had the final say which definitely included the occultic references.

Before we get into the specifics I’d like to consider what his drivers might have been. We’re going to have to speculate as of course he wouldn’t tell us and even if he did allude to the reasons they’d be laced with cryptic references and would take us down multiple paths leading to nowhere. Such is the nature of the occult. Hidden knowledge is always protected and only the most determined will be able to penetrate this veil. Quite often these fail-safe’s are in place to keep the curious from unle...

Let’s have a look at occult symbolism in Zeppelin’s lyrics as well. Many of you probably know that Stairway to Heaven is the most highly requested radio song of all time. Those famous first chords are among the most identifiable in rock history. Some eight minutes long, it plays out as a mystical quest of sorts with elements of paganism and mythology all mixed in to create an experience that is still being had daily on classic rock stations all over the planet. The song’s theme has been explained by some as a search for meaning in a world of ambiguity which is the ideal playground for deeply accessing the subconscious.

Stairway has been described as not just a song but a spell. I’d say that’s dead-on for a number of reasons. The spells that are cast during occult rituals gain power through belief, emotion and repetition as these important elements accumulate energy; very much like the buildup to sexual climax. Sound has supreme power in magick as the vibrations that sounds create are a...

Did Jimmy Page practice magick rituals during his performances? He has certainly been accused of attempting to hypnotize countless fans with hidden meanings in lyrics and other methods such as body language and through the symbols that adorned his stage clothing and equipment. JP’s violin bow solos have been singled out as blatant evidence of these covert yet overt ceremonies.

Yes, the violin bow could certainly be used as a magic wand of sorts. His use of the violin bow/wand in conjunction with a Theremin is a sight to behold. A Theremin is an electronic instrument in which tone is generated by two high frequency oscillators and the pitch is controlled by the movement of the performer’s hand. It creates a delightfully eerie sound; akin to what you might hear in a 1950’s sci-fi or horror movie.

Page has definitely performed the ‘Four Corners’ ritual with his wand and Theremin onstage. Any occultist will tell you this standard ritual is used to cleanse a space and prepare for spell work....
