NO QUEEN FOR GLASTO... BUT IF ASKED BY PLANT...?
Reportedy, according to:
But May would do it at the ‘drop of a hat’ if asked by Plant…
Last Monday (26 Oct) at the Q Awards, Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant revealed he has been in talks with Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis about playing next yearâ€™s 40th anniversary of the event. (Watch it here).
As for Queenâ€™s Brian May, he said they have not been asked and it’s unlikely they’ll be throwing their hat into the ring.
However, if Robert Plant – who was unsure of who heâ€™d play with – were to ask him, May told 6 Music News heâ€™d be there in a second.
Brian May on joining forces with Robert Plant…
Adding: “Thereâ€™s some people that remain your heroes which I rather feel good about. And [Eric] Clapton and [Jimmy] Page, Jeff Beck, those guys will always be heroes to me and that will never change, so yeah, of course Iâ€™ll go at the drop of a hat.”
May was speaking at the Classic Rock Awards yesterday (02 Nov) to present the Best Reissue award to Black Sabbathâ€™s Tony Iommi.
Meanwhile, Brian May said it is unlikely Queen will be hitting the road next year for an extended tour.
From 2004 to May 2009, May and Taylor collaborated with singer Paul Rodgers under the moniker Queen and Paul Rodgers. Since, Rodgers – formerly of Free, The Firm and The Law – has been touring with his reunited Bad Company bandmates in June and July.
Reflecting on the past few years, May said: “I think it was a very, very good period, very productive. It taught us a lot. Paul was and is one of the greatest singers and one of the greatest frontmen ever and we have a good relationship.”
However, while they are keeping the door to future collaborations with Rodgers open, May assured us for now, the partnership has run its course.
