Led Zeppelin Didn't Just Go Through The Motions With 02 Show

(hennemusic) This week, the BBC broadcast a Led Zeppelin special featuring an extended interview with Jimmy Page.

Page sat down with the BBC's Kirsty Lang for a fireside chat about his music, past and present.

A large chunk of the interview was focused on Zeppelin's 2007 reunion, which was recently released as "Celebration Day."

Lang asked Jimmy about the band's preparations for the 02 Arena concert. "Well, it was sort of over a 6-week period. There was a lot of preparation," explained Jimmy. "The first rehearsal was really exciting because I think everyone had such a will to make it work, but neverthless, we really needed to be playing properly as a band and not just sort of go through the motions of it…we really needed to throw ourselves into the whole commitment of it. And plus, having Jason [Bonham]…Jason had the hardest job of anybody, that's my opinion anyway, because he had to fill his father's shoes and he had a lot resting on his shoulders." Watch it here.
