Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page sat down for a Q&A in London yesterday, on the heels of the October 28th re-issue of Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy. Of course, someone naturally asked Page if a Led Zeppelin reunion was in the works. He responded:

“I don’t think it looks as though that’s a possibility or on the cards, so there’s not much more I can say about that. I’m not going to give a detail-by-detail account of what one person says or another person says. All I can say is it doesn’t look likely, does it?”

Then, Page talked about some of his own musical endeavors. Earlier this year, Page told Rolling Stone that he has “lots and lots” of new music, so it’s no surprise that the guitarist wants to get out on the road, especially with Robert Plant’s stunning new album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar. You can read our in depth review of lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar here.

When asked about a potential solo tour, Page said:

“If I was to play again it would be with musicians that would be… some of the names might be new to you. I haven’t put them together yet but I’m going to do that next year. If I went out to play, I would play material that spanned everything from my recording career right back to my very, very early days with The Yardbirds. There would certainly be some new material in there as well… I love playing live, I really do. Live concerts are always an interesting challenge because it means you can always change things as you’re playing every night. You can make it even more of an adventure. I would play all of the things I’m known to play — instrumental versions of ‘Dazed And Confused’ etcetera, etcetera…”

To see Jimmy Page back on the road would certainly be a treat, so let’s keep our fingers crossed for an official announcement.
