Robert Plant Says Jimmy Page “Should Do Something”
In an interview with The Telegraph, ex-Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant says that Jimmy Page “should get on and do something,” calling the guitarist “a superb talent.”
“That's the sad thing for Jimmy, he knows that I'm his guy, I'm his pal, but the warmth that he needs to actually enjoy the world, it's all there. Come on and give it to us," Plant said.
Drawing a comparison with the way Eric Clapton left supergroup Blind Faith in 1969 to tour as sideman with Delaney and Bonnie, or how George Harrison brought Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison together in The Traveling Wilburys, Plant continued:
“Why do it the way you always did it? Why think like that? You never think it could possibly work. And yet, you can take off all your trappings of 30 years of playing and step into this other world. You f*** them out of the way and have a good time.”
Page has been doing “something.” The new reissue of Led Zeppelin's “IV” album contains a rare version of “Black Dog.” Listen!
