VIDEO: Jimmy Page guests on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page was a featured guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on November 21.

Page was on the daytime talk show to promote his photographic autobiography, “Jimmy Page By Jimmy Page”, plus the band’s latest reissues, “Led Zeppelin IV” and “Houses Of The Holy.”

The guitarist and host spoke at length about the book as they showcased several images from the collection.

The pair also addressed the UK tabloid rumour that Robert Plant had allegedly been responsible for turning down an $800 million (£500 million) offer from Virgin head Sir Richard Branson for a Led Zeppelin reunion tour.

“Well, I don’t know anything about it,” explained Page (transcribed by hennemusic). “No, I really don’t. I’ve heard all manner of detail on this and I thought, ‘Well, I don’t know anything about this.’ I didn’t know anything about it all.”

Both Plant and Branson refuted the story, which has since been pulled from tabloid’s website.

Asked if the group would consider reuniting for a tour, Page said, “Well, I don’t know. He’s becoming very difficult, isn’t he. I think you’ve got the wrong one sitting here,” motioned the guitarist, implying the question needs to be answered by Plant.
