JIMMY PAGE Reportedly Nixed '12.12.12' LED ZEPPELIN Reunion Performance
According to The Pulse Of Radio
, film producer Harvey Weinstein
says that LED ZEPPELIN
did not appear at last year's 12.12.12
concert for Hurricane Sandy relief due to Jimmy Page
passing on the charity gig. Weinstein
was on hand at the Toronto International Film Festival
for the screening of the 12.12.12
documentary, and revealed that he pulled out all the stops to ensure that ZEPPELIN
appeared — even asking former President Bill Clinton
and President Obama
to personally lobby the guitarist so that the ZEPPELIN
reunion could help raise funds for the suffering and displaced Easterners.
said: "We get an OK from [Robert
will do it. . . Jimmy Page
doesn't want to do it. Bill
] talked to the group and Jimmy
told him no. Jimmy Page
struck out Obama
and Bill Clinton
. . . that will live on in infamy."
explained that the recently released "Celebration Day"
CD/DVD of ZEPPELIN
's 2007 London reunion concert was a chance to rectify some of ZEPPELIN
's less-than-stellar post-breakup reunion performances. "We had the opportunity to get together again — which is what we had there, to do the O2 — with those, y'know, things that left us a bit uncomfortable like the Live Aid
40th (anniversary concert), etc.," he said. "But we really just wanted to get it right and go out there to play to people who maybe never heard us, who had heard about this reputation and what we're about, and basically go out and stand out and be counted for what we were."
