Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page Taking Radical New Approach
Page has recently begun work on his first new record in 22 years. It's rumoured to have come about after the one-off Zep show at London's O2 Arena proved to be just that. When Plant refused to take part in a tour, Page, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer Jason Bonham – son of John – planned a tour anyway, but it fell apart. Now Page, 66, promises a new approach to his music on his upcoming album.
He says: "I think it's very important to make musical statements with new material, and that's exactly what I plan to do over the forthcoming year. Musically it will be a different picture in quite a radical frame, I hope. I'd like to try some ambitious projects." - more on this story
