Page claimed Plant was the reason for no more Zeppelin...
Robert Plant recently spoke to The Express about his strained relationship with Jimmy Page. Page told Day & Night in May that the rest of the band was ready to get back together for more live shows but Plant was "playing games by holding up matters". Plant is currently on tour with his band The Sensational Space Shifters.
He said: "I feel for the guy [Jimmy]. He knows he's got the headlines if he wants them. But I don't know what he's trying to do. So I feel slightly disappointed and baffled."
The band's last show together in 2007 (a tribute to Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun) was a success and led to fans wanting a reunion of the band.
Plant added: "A couple of years ago I said, 'If you've got anything acoustic, let me know. I'll give it a whirl. It was hands across the water. He just walked away. But we couldn't do anything proper. The weight of expectation is too great."
