He's doing a lot of it too...
Jimmy Page found a lot of his time being occupied by his work on the remastered Led Zeppelin albums but now that he's finished with that, it's back to writing. Page told Rolling Stone that he's writing and playing guitar, with plans to get back into the groove of playing.
"I play guitar at least once a week," said Page. "But now that the Zeppelin project is finished, I'll be playing daily for the foreseeable future. I want to get myself back into playing shape. I'm a bit of a perfectionist about these things."
He added, "I've got lots of material I've written on acoustic guitar. Lots and lots. And right now I need to get myself up to speed, and that won't take too long. But I don't know what musicians I'd play with. I do have material and a passion for it. I need to work towards it, and now I can without all the other side issues going on."
When asked about some potential live performances, Page said, "At this moment, it's safe to say that I haven't been playing gigs. I've been doing this Zeppelin project, but now I intend to start getting to a point where I could play some gigs. But what those gigs are going to be, I don't know yet. I have ideas of what I want to do, but they're pretty complex. I would love to play live again. I love playing live. It's wonderful."
