    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.

    The Who singer is keen to form a new band with the Led Zeppelin guitarist and go back to the blues roots he established before he started writing songs with bandmate Pete Townshend.

    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.

    The other surviving members of the group are busy, with singer Robert Plant recording a new album with vocalist Alison Krauss, and bassist John Paul Jones joining super-group Them Crooked Vultures.

    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.”
