Jimmy Page Working On 'Surprising' New Material



Having wrapped up work on the massive Led Zeppelin remastering project and abandoned all hope of convincing Robert Plant to join him in a Zep reunion, it is now time for Jimmy Page to set nostalgia aside and chart a course forward. In a recent interview, Page revealed that he is readying material for a new project.

"I'm playing guitar at the moment," Page said. "Because I'm getting ready. Starting to get ready...Whatever I do, I don't want people to have made up their minds before I've done it. They already have. On the internet, people are telling me, 'you're doing this, and you're doing that'...'Am I?' Just wait and see what I do. I've got new material that I've written, and it will be surprising."

If and when Page does strike out on his own, he will not jettison the Zeppelin material he's famous for, but he is dead set on avoiding the pitfalls of a rote retrospection.

"I don't want to go out there and bore people," the guitarist explained. "If I was doing a show or something, I'd like to show what I've done along the way but definitely have musical surprises for people so they wouldn't start yawning."

So don't worry, everyone. Page won't just be playing two-hour "Stairway To Heaven" solos. Although, hmm, that would be pretty great. Do what you feel, Jimmy!
