Re: Led Zeppelin reunion???
I agree about singing along (and I add air guitar). It's funny when I think about guitarists from the "rock god" era; Clapton was arguably the best blues guy, Iommi may have been the true riff-master, Van Halen could shred with anyone (including Hendrix), Allman could bend a string and make you cry, but Page was right there in every category. Like I said above, there seemed to be no end to his ability as a player and even as a songwriter. I would have loved to hear Page work with the likes of Jack Bruce, Ozzy Osbourne, Ian Gillan, and Freddy Mercury. The results of his work with Plant, Coverdale and to a lesser extent Paul Rogers speaks for itself.
To your point about his session work, from what I understand it isn't that he is that private it is that he did so many songs with so many people when he was a teenager, he really doesn't remember all the tracks he played. I have heard him say things like, "I was in a studio with "X" and we were playing either 'A" or "B", or maybe it was "C". Let's face it when he recorded these songs, he hadn't heard them before, noone had. And being in the studios all day he heard lots of new stuff. Now I'm just rambling on about Jimmy Page, I think I will go listen to Led Zeppelin II.
What if this is as good as it gets?
