Jimmy Page Slams Robert Plant Over Led Zeppelin Reunion Comments

(hennemusic) In an interview with the New York Times, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page takes a shot at singer Robert Plant over the role he's been playing in distracting both himself and fans with veiled commitments to reunite the legendary band for a tour.

"I was told last year that Robert Plant said he is doing nothing in 2014, and what do the other two guys think?," explains Page as he promotes the upcoming expanded reissues of Led Zeppelin's first three albums next month. "Well, he knows what the other guys think. Everyone would love to play more concerts for the band. He's just playing games, and I'm fed up with it, to be honest with you. I don't sing, so I can't do much about it. It just looks so unlikely, doesn't it?"

Plant raised the hopes of Led Zeppelin fans about a possible reunion trek when made the comments in February of 2013 during an interview with Australia's 60 Minutes.

"You know, the two other guys (Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones) are both Capricorns and they keep schtum (quiet); they don't say a word," Plant told reporter Tara Brown. "But they are quite contained in their own worlds and they just leave it to me to do this (interviews)."

"…to be the bad guy?", asked Brown. "I'm not the bad guy," replied the singer. "Well you are for all those Led Zeppelin fans who'd love you to say 'yes, we're reforming'," she challenged. "Well, then you need to speak to the Capricorns ... 'cause I've got nothing to do in 2014," answered Plant. more on this story
