Jimmy Page: 'I'm Fed Up Of Robert Plant Playing Games'

Jimmy Page admits he is growing tired of waiting for Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant to commit to more concerts, accusing the rocker of "playing games".

Talk of a reunion has been rife ever since the group came together for a one-off show in 2007 at the O2 Arena in London for a tribute to late music mogul Ahmet Ertegun.

Plant has made it clear he is opposed to the idea of a comeback tour, and although Page admits he was told his former bandmate is taking it easy in 2014, he insists he is "fed up" of waiting around for the rocker.

Page tells the New York Times, "I was told last year that Robert Plant said he is doing nothing in 2014, and what do the other two guys (John Paul Jones and John Bonham's son Jason) think? Well, he knows what the other guys think.

"Everyone would love to play more concerts for the band. He's just playing games, and I'm fed up with it, to be honest with you. I don't sing, so I can't do much about it. It just looks so unlikely, doesn't it?"

Page admits he is desperate to get back out on the road after focusing on new music in the studio for three years.

He adds, "I definitely want to play live. Because, you know, I've still got a twinkle in my eye. I can still play. So, yeah, I'll just get myself into musical shape, just concentrating on the guitar."
