Jimmy Page Agrees That Led Zeppelin Should Headline Glastonbury

Several polls voted for the band...
In an interview with Bang Showbiz (via NME), Jimmy Page said he agreed with recent polls that suggested Led Zeppelin should headline the Glastonbury festival.
While at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards in London yesterday, he said: "I agree with them, it's good music isn't it. Maybe I could just go out on my own then and call myself Led Zeppelin. 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."
The band have not performed together since December 2007 at the O2 Arena in London. They were joined there by Jason Bonham on drums. Jason is the son of the band's late drummer John Bonham.
Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis said in April that he was sure the band would get together again.
