Jimmy Page continues to blame Phil Collins for disastrous Led Zeppelin reunion at Live Aid in 1985

Jimmy Page has said that, on reflection (36 years later), it was a bad idea to get Phil Collins to play drums with Led Zeppelin for the band’s reunion performance at the American side of Live Aid in 1985. Although it does seem a bit unfair to lay the whole car crash of a performance at Collins’ feet.Speaking to The Times, Page says that it was “really not very clever” to draft in Collins to replace John Bonham, who had died five years earlier.
