With the extensive Led Zeppelin remaster project making its way into the world, Jimmy Page’s thoughts are now turning to new music.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Page says he’s stepping up his guitar playing from about once a week to a daily routine with a view to playing live, and perhaps creating a follow-up to his lone solo album, 1988’s The Outrider.
“I want to get myself back into playing shape,” Page said. “I’m a bit of a perfectionist about these things. I've got lots of material I've written on acoustic guitar, lots and lots. And right now I need to get myself up to speed, and that won't take too long. But I don't know what musicians I'd play with. I do have material and a passion for it.”
When reminded that Jeff Beck had recently said he’d love to some day do a Page/Beck joint tour, Page seemed non-committal: "That would be great," he said, “but I don't know. I don't know what's going to happen.”
