So are we, Jimmy... so are we...
Led Zeppelin

Reforming for one brief, glorious evening in 2007, Led Zeppelin seemed to open a Pandora's box.

Each and every time one of the members is interviewed, the question of a permanent re-union arises. Robert Plant was recently probed on this very topic by the BBC, and replied that the chances of a new show were "zero".

Well, this has just riled Jimmy Page. The guitarist spoke to the New York Times at the weekend, and replied that he was "fed up" with the singer's attitude.

"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" he said. "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."

"I definitely want to play live" he continued. "Because, you know, I've still got a twinkle in my eye. I can still play. So, yeah, I'll just get myself into musical shape, just concentrating on the guitar."

For his part, Robert Plant is currently working on a solo album. Due for release on September 9th, it will apparently "sound alright at a Jamaican party".

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the singer said: "It’s really a celebratory record, but it's very crunchy and gritty, very West African and very Massive Attack-y. There's a lot of bottom end, so it might sound alright at a Jamaican party, but I'm not sure it would sound alright on [US radio network] NPR."
