Jimmy Page Promises New Music
Jimmy Page has probably been the least musically active of the surviving Led Zeppelin members for the past many years, but it looks like that will change very soon. In a recent interview with BBC6, Page promised new solo work in the near future.
“I’m starting to work next year, to be seen to be playing live," Page said. "I’ll definitely be doing an album at that point in time. I want to be playing. I want to be out there playing. That’s what you’ll understand from seeing this.”
The “this” he referred to is Celebration Day, the Led Zeppelin concert film set to hit theaters around the world starting today. The film documents Zeppelin’s one and only reunion concert, which took place at London’s O2 Arena on December 10, 2007.
“We put a lot of time and effort into it so that it would be what you're going to see now, which is just one show - that's all we did, no warm-up gigs, no follow-up,” Page said of the movie. “It wasn't designed to be a film at all. That's why it's taken a little while to come out, because we didn't even look at it for two years after we'd done it, so we could be a bit more objective about it."
All three members of Led Zeppelin have been very clear about the fact that no future reunions lie on the horizon, but if Page’s newfound commitment to making music is any indication, the hubbub surrounding Celebration Day is at the very least inspiring a bit of a resurgence in the Zep universe.
Celebration Day is in theaters for a limited time as of today, and it will be out on DVD and Blu-ray on November 19.
