Jimmy Page: 'Robert Plant Really Wants to Make Music Without Led Zeppelin'
Led Zeppelin guitar master Jimmy Page took a mild jab at singer Robert Plant, saying how he seems rather adamant about avoiding the Zep fold.

Directly asked by theĀ Associated Press on whether he'll ever make music with Plant again, Jimmy replied:

"Robert seems really keen on just wanting to make music on his own without any of his previous band members. It seems quite apparent because I've seen him with these projects that come and go during the period where I've been dealing with this project, with the exception of the O2 and 'Celebration Day.' That's all right because it is what it is. I certainly have some really good ideas."

Asked about the odds of going back to the studio, Page commented, "I haven't recorded the material I got because I haven't had a unit due to all the comings and goings of these albums. I want to be seen playing this new material, say next year."

The guitarist also touched on the matter of the band's 1980 breakup following the death of drummer John Bonham. "It would be a bit dishonest; it would be totally dishonest," he said. "So it took time, a time to be able to reconsider doing anything like that. But of course, we did do it and we did it well."
