Did Jimmy Page Scrap Led Zeppelin Reunion?
Since Led Zeppelin reunited for a one-off concert in 2007, many have hoped that the group will return to the stage again. And, while the press has reported that it is front man Robert Plant who has stood in the way of a full blown Zeppelin return, recent comments from producer Harvey Weinstein have suggested that guitarist and band leader Jimmy Page might actually be the fly in the group's ointment. As Huffington Post reports, the Hollywood bigwig, who was instrumental in organizing last year's 12.12.12 Hurricane Sandy benefit, offered an unflattering account of Page during a recent Q&A. According to Weinstein, it was Page, and not Plant, who turned down the offer for Led Zeppelin to perform at the benefit concert, describing the guitarist's lawyer as "Satan:" "We get an OK from Plant if Page will do it ... Jimmy Page doesn't want to do it ... Jimmy Page's lawyer... Maybe he works for Satan? Maybe he is Satan?" Weinstein then enlisted both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama to ask Jimmy to reform the band for the charity event. According to Huffington Post, the film producer noted with "barely concealed rage" that the guitarist even said no to U.S Presidents: "Jimmy Page struck out Obama and Bill Clinton. That will live on in infamy." The allegations come after Robert Plant hinted that he might be up for a Led Zeppelin reunion after all. When asked about the state of the band back in February, the singer, typically known for not wanting to reform the group, cryptically responded "I've got nothing to do in 2014."
