Led Zeppelin have been busy, having played a handful of shows around the world, with last week’s headline show in London earning a standing ovation from the crowd.
However, it was not enough to secure their first ever Grammy nomination for their album, Led Zeeprophet, which was also nominated for Best Metal Performance.
The song “The Biggest Secret” was nominated for a Best Metal Album award, and it is a very similar song to one from their previous album, 1969’s Led Zepplin, which has been the subject of much speculation since the album was released.
“It is definitely a very different song,” said singer Jimmy Page, speaking to reporters in Sydney, Australia.
“The music is different, but the lyrics are very much the same.
It’s a great thing that we got nominated for an award for a song, but we still have a long way to go.
We’ve just been playing a few shows and it’s been really nice to get our own awards, but at the end of the day it’s not about the song.
It’s about the fans and it shows that you’re still really passionate about what you’re doing.”
The band have previously stated that their upcoming album, called Zeppelin II, is their last, although Page said that could be in the future.
“I don’t think we’ll ever really say that we’re done with it, but it is what it is,” he said.
“We’ll always be here, we’re still here and we will always be Zeppelin.
We’re just going to continue to play live.”
The song, which is a nod to the famous song written by Bob Dylan, was nominated in three categories.
In the Alternative Music category, “The Great Gatsby” won the award for best song of the decade.
In Album of the Year, “White Album”, was also a contender.
The award was handed out on Tuesday night by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and was announced at a ceremony at the Sydney Opera House.
Led Zeppelin were nominated in five categories, with the three best-selling albums being 1968’s Led, Led and Zeppelin IV.
“They are all great albums, but they are not the same album,” Page said of the album nominees.
“If we’d got a bunch of other albums nominated, I’d be proud to put up a plaque in their honour, but this is the one that I think is the best one.”
To have a song from that album nominated for the award is a really special honour for us, but to have the same song nominated for that album in three different categories is amazing.
It is a great honour to have my song nominated as one of the best albums of the year.
“The winner was announced by Grammy-nominated singer Neil Young, who has been an avid fan of the band for years.”
In my career, I’ve always felt there are things that are good about the music, but there’s always been a part of me that thinks there’s something about it that doesn’t make sense, and I think that’s been the case for a long time,” he told ABC Radio.”
So, for me, the album is about the songs and the music and the songs about the people.
I think the album does that.
