Jimmy Page is always “trying to be better”.
The Led Zeppelin guitarist is a perfectionist, and despite more than 60 years in the music industry, the 79-year-old rocker isn’t always right.
When asked if he’s as much of a perfectionist about aspects of the music business as he is about the music itself, he replied: But let’s be honest, that perfectionism applied to everything. ”
When asked if it was difficult to work with, he said: I don’t think it was at all. ”
When asked if he ever found it difficult to work with his bandmates, which included Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and the late John Bonham, he gave that impression from them. He admitted that he never received it.
He told Guitar Player magazine:
Jimmy added: That’s all. Also, sometimes things just don’t work out. Do better, do better. But it’s about me. And I haven’t changed. that’s me
Meanwhile, Jimmy has previously admitted that he doesn’t think Led Zeppelin exists today because of the immediacy of the online world.
The musician found his work in the 1970s to be “a good time as a creative musician.” Because the hitmakers of “Stairway to Heaven” were able to experiment with their sound and introduce new material at the gig.
“I did it with the ‘Immigrant Song’ at the Bath Festival in 1970, but no one had ever heard a song like that. I don’t have the freedom to do that now because it will be posted online soon.” It was a fun time being a creative musician and a fun time being in a band.”
The band broke up in 1980 when drummer John died, but most recently reunited in 2007 for a special one-off performance.
