Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stone magazine have always had an uneasy relationship: although the band dominated the ’70s, they were only on the cover once during that decade. And Rolling Stone didn’t always give Zeppelin’s records favorable reviews. So, it was a surprise that the band’s leader Jimmy Page gave the magazine an eight-hour plus interview in the new issue, which features a vintage Page shot on the cover.
“Here’s pretty close to what I said last night in Madison. I said from the stage that we had to play better than good tonight, that the president was here today and he’s a hard act to follow. Also, that we’re not fooled by the media and we think it’s going to be a landslide. That’s pretty much all of it.” – Bob Dylan
“At least Bush was affable,” Stills writes. “I don’t care if it’s a debate and you’re running for office. It’s not right to be that rude to the President of the United States, let alone anybody else. Also, you don’t get offended when you get corrected.”
The Rolling Stones are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a photo book, HBO documentary and what everyone was hoping for; reunion shows. The band recently spoke with Rolling Stone magazine about the anniversary and upcoming shows for a feature that will be published in the November 8th issue.
