Jimmy Page gives us another reason why there is no Led Zep for your plastic guitars.
“Obviously, there have been overtures made to Led Zeppelin, but if you start with the first track on the first album, ‘Good Times Bad Times,’ and you think of the drum part that John Bonham did there, how many drummers in the world can actually play that, let alone dabble on a Christmas morning?” Page said. “There could be a lot of alcohol consumed over Christmas, and you still aren’t going to get it.”
So the drum parts are too hard to play, and the drummer is dead, BTW, so that’s why we’re not releasing it. Let’s not talk about The Who and Keith and John or anything.
It’s the legal issues, isn’t it? Zep got into big trouble for ripping off blues artists and not giving them credit. They weathered this storm once but they don’t want it to eat up their retirement fund. It ain’t gonna happen.
