Word is the mighty Jimmy Page is going to do “something” musically this year, after seeing his attempt to get Zep II off the ground with a new singer fail, and watching John Paul Jones have fun with Them Crooked Vultures.
I can’t wait. I’m sure it will be good. Maybe even great. And it’s borderline criminal for a man of Jimmy’s obvious talent to be on the musical sidelines.
With that in mind, following are versions of Page music with and without Zep (notably the Coverdale Page band of the ’90s – yes Coverdale “sounds like” Plant), as well as:
> Page-Plant covering Coverdale Page; and
> Coverdale Page playing Whitesnake’s Still of the Night! I had NO IDEA Jimmy covered that tune.
Enjoy! But first:
Here’s what Jimmy recently said about the “future” (if there is one) of Zep: “You’d better ask Robert Plant what the future of Led Zeppelin is. Musicians can always play together but I don’t think you can go out with a band called Led Zeppelin if you haven’t got the original vocalist.”
