Robbie Williams Apologizes for Accusing Jimmy Page of Being Mentally Ill

After years of being bickering neighbors, it seems that the feud between Robbie Williams and Jimmy Page has come to an end.

The feud began when Williams moved in next door to Page in 2013. Williams soon began renovations on his mansion, which Page was not a fan of, citing it would be “catastrophic” to his home. Page filed a complaint to the city council about it, which was later overruled.  Page’s home was built in the 1870’s and has protection from construction under U.K. law.

During this feud, Williams said “Jimmy has been sitting in his car outside our house, four hours at a time. He’s recording the workmen to see if they’re making too much noise. And also, two weeks ago, the builders came in and he was asleep in his garden, waiting.” He would then insinuate accuse the Led Zepplin founder of having evidence of “a mental illness concentrating.”

Williams has now changed his tone, issuing an apology to Page. “Jimmy Page has explained to me that certain specific factual assertions which I made were in fact not true and I am happy to accept what Jimmy Page says,” Williams said in his statement. “I understand why Jimmy Page will have found my comments offensive and I apologize for any hurt that they have caused him and his family as a result.”

He also added, “I regret that the press went on to report them and I hope that the press will now remove them.”

Cryptic Message on Robert Plant’s Website Starts Led Zeppelin Reunion Rumor

“Any time now…”

That’s the message that Robert Plant has on the front page of his website. And that’s it. There’s nothing else on the page.

With those cryptic three words, Plant has put the internet into a frenzy. Could Led Zeppelin be reuniting?

Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones reunited 10 years ago in London, with Jason Bonham taking his father’s place behind the drum kit. Since then, Plant has turned down any reunion rumors.

While many are getting their credit cards ready to purchase Zeppelin reunion tickets, the message could be misleading, as Plant has been working on new material, so the message could be referring to that.

According to Feel Numb, however, their sources are telling them that Zeppelin will be reuniting for the festival Desert Trip 2017, which would coincide with the Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary.

The festival is due to take place in Indio, California, in October. Last year’s event featured the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, the Who and Roger Waters.

April 14th: On This Day

On this day in 1975, after rumors that Jimmy Page, Steve Marriott, Jeff Beck or Chris Spedding would replace Mick Taylor as guitarist in The Rolling Stones, a press release confirmed that Ronnie Wood would be joining the band for their forthcoming American tour.

Before The Stones, Wood had played with the Jeff Beck Group as a bassist and was the guitarist for The Faces.

Wood has been with The Stones ever since. Along with releasing material with the band, he has also released seven solo albums.

January 23rd: On This Day

On this day in 1965, ‘Downtown’ made Petula Clark the first UK female singer to have a No.1 on the US singles chart since Vera Lynn in 1952. The song was also a No.2 hit in the UK. Recorded in three takes (with the second take ultimately chosen as the completed track), session players in the studio recording included Jimmy Page.

The song was Certified Gold by the RIAA.
