Roger Daltrey To Rock With Page?
The Who frontman Roger Daltrey wants to start a blues super-group with Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
Roger Daltrey wants to start a super-group with Jimmy Page.
He told UK radio station BBC6 music: "I'd love to do something, I'd love to do an album with Jimmy Page. He needs a singer to drive him. I'm a great blues singer.
"I don't sing the blues with The Who, but that's what I used to be before Townshend started writing. I used to be a great blues singer."
The project is more likely to happen as the future of The Who is uncertain, following comments made by 64-year-old Pete revealed he may have to stop performing because of a recurring problem with tinnitus - a painful ringing in the ears, a symptom of noise-induced hearing loss.
He said: "If my hearing is going to be a problem, we're not delaying shows. We're finished. I can't really see any way around the issue."
Meanwhile, Jimmy Page has spoken of his frustration at not being able to make a Led Zeppelin reunion happen.
Jimmy said: "You'd better ask Robert Plant what the future of Led Zeppelin is. Musicians can always play together but I don't think you can go out with a band called Led Zeppelin if you haven't got the original vocalist."
Jimmy has, however, spoken of his desire to get a new musical project off the ground this year, which could pave the way for Roger's plan.
He previously said: "Next year I have every intention of playing music live and manifesting it. I've got the music waiting, and that's what I'll be doing."
