Jimmy Page Hoped For Led Zeppelin Reunion Tour
Page shares his thoughts on Zeppelin's status following the band's one-off reunion show at London's 02 Arena in December of 2007. "Some of us thought we would be continuing, that there were going to be more concerts in the not-too-distant-future," explains Page. "Because there was a lot of work being put into the show." The Zeppelin reunion Jimmy hoped would continue as shut down because Robert Plant had no interest in moving forward with the project (via HenneMusic). "He was busy," says Jimmy. "He was doing his Alison Krauss project. I wasn't fully aware it was going to be launched at the same time. So what do you do in a situation like that? I'd been working with the other two guys for the percentage of the rehearsals at the O2. We were connecting well. The weakness was that none of us sang." With Plant out of the picture, Page, John Paul Jones and drummer Jason Bonham continued rehearsing together in early 2008. "We didn't do any professional recording," says Page. "We just had a little digital recorder. I thought it was good. I wasn't going to away from it. But the weakness came up again. It was, 'We gotta have a singer.'"
