Jimmy Page updates plans for 2011

Last fall, Jimmy Page caused quite a stir among fans when he told an interviewer, “I’m desperate to be playing, but it won’t be ‘til next year.”

“I’ll get a good vehicle to get out there and do some concerts,” the guitar icon added.

Those comments – at the 2010 Classic Rock “Roll Of Honour” Awards – gave fans some hope that they’d be seeing Jimmy in action again and, perhaps, soon.

It’s been a quiet five months since then, with no sign of movement in the Page camp.

Jimmy surfaced again recently at the Ivor Novello Awards, which are presented annually to celebrate, honour and reward excellence in British music writing.

In light of his comments last fall, Page was asked for an update on his plans for the coming year.

“At the moment, I’m constructing a website,” said Jimmy, “because I’ve had the domain name (JimmyPage.com) but I’ve not had a website, so I’m constructing that. I think that will bring a few surprises to how things normally are. Once that’s done, then I’m going to start working on the new music.”
