Chili Peppers Want Jimmy Page For Knebworth Shows

They're looking to sign up Zep guitarist

Speaking to the Daily Star, Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith said, "Jimmy Page has come to our shows before but we haven't had a chance to play with him. That would be really cool, so maybe that can happen. Maybe we can get Page to come out to Knebworth. I saw him come on with Foo Fighters at Wembley."

Smith went on to say performing at Knebworth held special meaning for the band. "I first heard about Knebworth when Led Zeppelin played there in 1979," he said, "so to me it's hallowed ground and pretty cool. Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, The Stones and Queen and The Who – I grew up listening to all of them. To be accepted where these guys play blows our minds. It's like a bucket list kind of thing. We can tick that one off."
