Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to play at London 2012 Olympics?
Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page has said he would be “honoured” to be asked to perform at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The guitarist told The Independent that he hadn’t been asked about appearing yet, but strongly hinted that he would accept if offered the gig.
Page played his band’s Led Zeppelin’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ at the Olympic handover in London last month, alongside Leona Lewis.
“I don’t know about that [performing in 2012] yet,” he said. “If they asked, it would be an honour.”
Page defended his performance last month, which was widely criticised. “We got so much criticism and I really don’t know why,” he said. “I think we did a great job – it was an honour to be there.
“People just need to be less cynical. You know, we went out there, we only had 10 minutes – what did people expect?”
