Jimmy Page Reveals What Next Led Zeppelin Album Would Have Been

(Classic Rock) Jimmy Page has opened up on how Led Zeppelin's ninth album might have sounded - if the band hadn't split on the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980. And the guitarist says he wasn't aware of any tension within the lineup as they worked on what would be their final releases.

Led Zep had endured a potentially permanent break after the death of Plant's young son Karac in 1977, and finally ground to a halt following Bonham's passing in 1980. Coda was released two years later.

But Page says he knows what the band would have done with their next studio title if they'd kept going: "Riffs. Interestingly-contructed riffs and hypnotic music," he says.

"John and I spoke about this a lot. Let's put it this way - on the next album, John wouldn't have been playing with brushes. John loved the idea of anything where he could really get going." Read more here.
