My friend has claimed that Jimmy Page isn't very talented because he couldn't sing and play guitar at the same time. A: This statement is stupid. B: This statement is false. He sang in his own song called She just satisfies.

Now, To the question. No life story this time.
Why did Jimmy Page not sing for Zeppelin at all? He had a good enough voice for it.

I read somewhere that he had heard plant in another band and liked his style thought thats what he wanted. The band was formed around the musicians.

In most bands everyone has their part. Sure there are LOTS of bands that everyone gets their chance to sing or do other stuff. But in Zep,everyone was so good at what they did,except J.P.J.,...****er did everything and he did it well!!!!:D

Maybe he just wanted to concentrate on playing the guitar? Page always seemed like a guy that had a very specific idea of the kind of band he wanted... Maybe he understood the power that a frontman can have.

Because he was a very smart guy. Hire a real singer who can cover all the ranges that you can't. Two frontmen are better than one... the list goes on.




+1 his voice isn't bad but it isn't great either, you maximize your talent by not trying to be an all in one type of deal, why didn't keith richards just sing the stones songs? etc etc

Thanks for all the wonderful responses :)
Now what we need is some more sarcasm, maybe some more jokes, some pizza and a case of beer.

These talented gentlemen couldn't sing and play their guitars at the same time, either . . .

So, why didn't John Paul Jones play guitar? He certainly is as accomplished as Page.
