Jimmy Page has recently hit back at Keith Richards over comments he made about Led Zeppelin. However Page said that Richards most likely made the disparaging comments because he was promoting his solo album.
Speaking to Classic Rock magazine, Keith Richards previously said “I love Jimmy Page, but as a band, no, with John Bonham thundering down the highway in an uncontrolled 18-wheeler. He had cornered the market. Jimmy is a brilliant player but I always felt there was something a little hollow about it.”
Page responded accordingly to the comments in his own interview with Classic Rock saying “Keith can say what he wants. He’s Keith Richards. I think he’s done some amazing work. I respect his playing. And he has a solo album out. But if I was promoting a new album, would I be more caustic? The answer is… no.”
Jimmy Page continued by saying “I’m not sure what he means by calling Led Zeppelin hollow. I think he’s got his tongue in his cheek. What we did was really cool.”
Page himself recently spoke about recording a new solo album saying “My plan would be to work on all of the music, so that by the time I get the musicians in, I’d be sure that the music is really substantial in all these areas.”
