Oh. My. God.
In a recent interview with the BBC about the forthcoming reissue of the band's first three albums, guitarist Jimmy Page said he was sure fans would be keen on another reunion show, but Plant has since said the chances of it happening are zero".This is a bombshell (sarcasm intended). This is something that has never, ever happened before. Ever.
Now, Page has told The New York Times that he is "fed up" with Plant's refusual to play.
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."
When did Jimmy Page start being unhappy with Robert Plant? You can mark it down right here. It didn't start until 2014.
Look, there's a reason why Robert Plant doesn't want to do a Led Zeppelin reunion tour for the wealthy and privileged (ticket prices for such an event would be stratospheric and, hence, many "fans" would come solely because of their status, not their devotion to the music). He doesn't want to do it because he has made up his mind to do other things. That could change tomorrow.
Why fixate on it?
