    Jimmy Page’s tour promise

    Former Led Zeppelin rocker Jimmy Page has revealed he plans to tour next year, with or without his bandmates.


    Jimmy Page is going to tour again in 2010 – with or without his Led Zeppelin bandmates.

    The legendary guitarist has a host of new songs written and plans to release and tour them in the New year.

    Jimmy – who played a one-off concert with Led Zeppelin at London’s O2 Arena in December 2007 - said: “We're running up to Christmas now and 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. It's been two years since The 02 show, so it's time to do that."

    Jimmy, 65, insists he has never fallen out of love with the guitar and says his relationship with his instrument is like a happy marriage.

    The musician – who has been married three times and is currently wed to Jimena Gomez-Paratcha, mother to three of his five children –added to Sky News: “There's this bonding with this instrument. It's as simple as that, they sort of speak with their own character. You can have this marvellous affair with a guitar, almost like a marriage. But at the end of the day it doesn't ask you for alimony."

    Jimmy’s Led Zeppelin bandmates Robert Plant and John Paul Jones are both busy with their own projects.

    Robert is recording another album with Alison Krauss, while John has just released an LP with his super-group Them Crooked Vultures, which also includes Foo Fighters rocker Dave Grohl and Queens of the Stone Age singer Josh Homme.
