Jimmy Page on Led Zeppelin Glastonbury Rumours: 'You Never Know What's Going to Happen'
Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin has spoken about the chances of the band headlining Glastonbury Festival in the future.

Talking to host Shaun Keaveny on BBC Radio 6 Music about comments made by Michael Eavis, in which the festival boss said he was "sure" the band would one day headline the festival, he said (via NME): "I haven't heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know do you ... you never know what's going to happen tomorrow, do you?"

Meanwhile, Page recently said that he decided to reissue the band's first three albums to remind people what a "f--king good band" they were. Page tells NME that his reasoning behind reissuing "I," 'II' and "III" is in part a celebration of what the band achieved, and also an opportunity to introduce a new generation of music fans to the songs.

"I hope young musicians find it a source of inspiration," Page says. "That's how I learned, and that's what's so seductive about this nerdish thing. Led Zeppelin have real serious musical mastery and this is passing it on. It's a cool thing to do."

Speaking about what made Led Zeppelin so special, Page has his own theory. "You had superstars in other bands at that time. But you didn't have four who were real masters of their craft, who could play as a band like that," he says. "Not at this time. We were an amazing live band from the start and I don't mean that in an arrogant way. We were on top of the game. Anybody's game."

The reissues will be released on CD and vinyl as well as digitally today (June 2) with all tracks remastered by Page and accompanied by previously unheard tracks. All nine of the band's studio albums are set to be re-released in the same style.
