In a recent interview with Mark Goodman from SiriusXM Volume, Led Zeppelin mastermind Jimmy Page spoke about the possibility of 50th anniversary events of Led Zeppelin.
Here’s what he said:
“I’ve always got things in mind, and I always think of things as a schedule of releases over a period of time. I’ve never been, actually, any different. And, obviously, I would have ideas of things or projects which could go ahead, but, you know, it all takes time.
So, at the moment, we’ve got this [book] out, so that’s really brilliant. And who knows what may come further on down the line? I don’t know. So I can’t really say at this point.”
Interviewer asked him ‘can we expect new songs from him as a solo artist’, Jimmy responded:
“Ah, well, that’s a different story. Yes, you’ll definitely be getting stuff from Jimmy Page; I can guarantee that.“
Back in February 2018, Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant talked about their 50th anniversary plans and said:
“Well, we’re planning to get together and talk about it. Basically, it’s very difficult to find stuff that still is unheard, and not only will it be 50 years, but it’ll be, next year, 38 years since John [Bonham] passed away.
And the great thing about Led Zeppelin was that we didn’t chronicle ourselves; we just kind of went from town to town and sang songs and played guitars and stuff. And then went about our lives. The whole idea of chronicling the life of people in bands…
In a way, I wish that we had more stuff to look at, but there will be a book of photographs and stuff. But some of it will be particularly interesting, I think. Beyond that, musically, there’s bits and pieces lying around, but not an album or anything like that. But there will be a celebration, I’m sure, somewhere. A cork will pop!”
