More about: Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin icon and guitar hero Jimmy Page has once again discussed the legendary icon headlining Glastonbury, saying that he agrees with polls that say they should top the bill at the festival - but adding that he may have to do it alone.
After months of debate and bickering between bandmates, Page's comments are just the latest in a long line of chatter about the potential future of the classic rockers.
Now, speaking to Bang Showbiz at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards , Page said he agreed with bookies' odds and opinion polls for them to headline.
"I agree with them, it's good music isn't it," he said. "Maybe I could just go out on my own then and call myself Led Zeppelin."
He continued: "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 albums 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."

Last month, Page spoke out about recent comments made by frontman Robert Plant regarding his refusal to reform, claiming that he was tired of Plant toying with the emotions of the rest of the band.
"I was told last year that Robert Plant said he is doing nothing in 2014, and what do the other two guys think?” Page told the New York Times. "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."
Now, at a recent press conference, The National report that Plant responded: “I think he needs to go to sleep and have a good rest, and think again. We have a great history together and like all brothers, we have these moments where we don’t speak on the same page but that’s life.”
Then, speaking to Gigwise back in May (see the video above), Page elaborated on his own live plans to take Led Zep music on the road.
"I intend to be playing myself - seen to be playing and out there playing" said Page. "The music that I would do goes before Led Zeppelin, and beyond. So obviously it's a major part of my musical career so I'm going to play their music. Why wouldn't I?"
