Forget games, pick up an actual Guitar: Jimmy Page

Washington, Jul 22: Aerosmith has a game, even Beatles does but Jimmy Page just doesn't want one on Led Zeppelin.

Guitar legend Jimmy Page has clearly said that no Led Zeppelin-based video game will be made, insisting that the band's musical compositions are impossible to replicate.

He says that he does not have any plans to follow in the footsteps of bands like Aerosmith, Metallica and The Beatles who have allowed the makers of computer games, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, to use their songs in the software, giving fans the chance to recreate the music.

"Obviously, there have been overtures made to Led Zeppelin, but if you start with the first track on the first album, Good Times Bad Times, and you think of the drum part that John Bonham did there, how many drummers in the world can actually play that, let alone dabble on a Christmas morning? There could be a lot of alcohol consumed over Christmas, and you still aren't going to get it," Contactmusic quoted him as having told Starpulse.

Page suggested that wannabe rockers better pick up a real musical instrument if they actually wish to master the art.

"You'll see if you've got a passion to want to play the instrument, and that is a good initiation. From my experience, once I got a guitar that was relatively user-friendly, but not super-duper easy, I really came on as a guitarist, at that point. It helped. It wasn't a super-expensive guitar either, but something needs to steer you a bit, if you're playing an instrument that is really hard," he said.
