Jimmy Page hasn't ruled out Led Zeppelin headlining Glastonbury Festival in the future.
The guitarist has responded to comments made by festival boss Michael Eavis, who claimed he was "sure" the band would one day headline the event Worthy Farm.
Jimmy told BBC 6 Music: "I haven't heard about anything since the 2007 O2 gig, but you never know do you... you never know what's going to happen tomorrow, do you?"
This year's festival will be headlined by Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian, after fans speculated Led Zeppelin could play the event.
Meanwhile, Jimmy, 70, recently said he decided to reissue the band's first three albums to remind people what a "f****ng good band" they were.
He said: "I hope young musicians find it a source of inspiration. That's how I learned, and that's what's so seductive about this nerdish thing. Led Zeppelin have real serious musical mastery and this is passing it on. It's a cool thing to do."
Speaking about what made Led Zeppelin so special, he also claims he has his own theory.
He said: "You had superstars in other bands at that time. But you didn't have four who were real masters of their craft, who could play as a band like that.
"Not at this time. We were an amazing live band from the start and I don't mean that in an arrogant way. We were on top of the game. Anybody's game."
The reissues will be released on CD and vinyl as well as digitally today (02.06.14) with all tracks remastered by Jimmy and accompanied by previously unheard songs.
All nine of the band's studio albums are set to be re-released in the same style.
