Led Zeppelin rocker Jimmy Page has admitted he agrees with fans that the iconic rock group should headline Glastonbury one year because "it's good music"
Jimmy Page agrees that Led Zeppelin should headline Glastonbury.
The rock band have been named in several polls and by bookies as the band people want to see top the bill at the world famous music festival and while the guitarist knows why, he has no idea if the band will ever reform to do it.
Speaking at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards yesterday (04.07.14), he said: "I agree with them, it's good music isn't it."
He cheekily added: "Maybe I could just go out on my own then and call myself Led Zeppelin."
Meanwhile, he suggested the group's longevity and enduring popularity is one of the mean reasons fans want to see them at the iconic music festival.
He added to BANG Showbiz: "I think the reason people want it is the fact Led Zeppelin's music has touched people all the way through and every year seems to bring new young musicians and a new audience.
"I've just been out promoting the first three releases of Led Zeppelin's album and it's young people that are there and young journalists - it's not the old school.
"So, I know what it means to people and it's a really nice thing. Music has always been my passion as a kid."
