Robert Plant Mocks Jimmy Page Regarding Led Zeppelin Reunion
Robert Plant mocked Jimmy Page's recent remarks regarding Plant's on-again, off-again interest in a Led Zeppelin reunion. Last month, Page, who is promoting the deluxe reissues of the first three Zeppelin albums, finally came out and blamed Plant for being the bandmember thwarting any hopes of a Zeppelin reunion tour. During a lengthily interview with The New York Times, Page said, "I was told last year that Robert Plant said he is doing nothing in 2014, and what do the other two guys think? 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?"
Ultimate Classic Rock reported that during Plant's recent press conference in Morocco to publicize his side band, the Sensational Space Shifters' shows, Plant addressed Page's comments, saying, "He needs to go to sleep and have a good rest, and think again. We have a great history together and like all brothers we have these moments where we don’t speak on the same page, but that’s life."
Jimmy Page has run into the same problems with Robert Plant over the years. Back in 2000, Page told us that trying keep Plant interested in their work as a duo had finally proved futile: "And in the end, I just lost . . . y'know, I thought, ‘I can’t keep trying to motivate somebody if they just definitely don’t seem to want to know.’ So, at the moment, there isn’t any plans to do anything with Robert."
