Keith Richards Slams Led Zeppelin And The Who: Keith Richards News
Richards has made recent headlines with negative comments about Metallica, Black Sabbath, and The Beatles' legendary album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
The guitarist spoke with Rolling Stone about his new solo album "Crosseyed Heart" and during the conversation he took aim at Led Zeppelin. He said, (via NME), 'I love Jimmy Page, but as a band, no. John Bonham thundering down the highway in an uncontrolled 18-wheeler. He had cornered the market there. Jimmy is a brilliant player. But I always felt there was something a little hollow about it, you know?"
Richard then reportedly said that The Who's frontman Roger Daltrey is "all flash" and criticized late drummer Keith Moon as not being able to play with musicians outside of The Who.
"[Moon] could play to Pete like nobody else in the world. But if somebody threw him into a session with somebody else, it was a disaster," he said. "There's nothing wrong with that; sometimes you've got that one paintbrush, and you rock it."
He then gave a little insight into where the criticism of other acts has been coming from, according to the report. "I just was never really interested in that many English rock'n'roll bands actually, at all." -
