Jimmy Page snub might affect Led Zeppelin reunionJuly 24th, 2008 - 1:35 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 24 (IANS) Singer Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin is upset with former bandmate Jimmy Page for not mentioning his name in his acceptance speech at the MOJO Honours ceremony. Now their reunion might be off for good, reports thesun.co.uk. Plant could not attend the ceremony because he was touring with singer Alison Krauss and Page accepted the award for Best Live Act on band’s behalf. Page gave a long acceptance speech but did not mention Plant even once.
A source said: “Robert was really disappointed that he didn’t merit a mention. The award was for the band’s performance, so he thought he should have at least been thanked.”
Led Zeppelin members disbanded in 1980 shortly after drummer John Bonham’s death. Page and Plant have since reunited and occasionally go on tour together. The four member band also had John Paul Jones.
