Keith Richards has been on a roll.
In a new interview with NME Richards throws more shade, this time on Led Zeppelin and The Who.
“I love Jimmy Page, but as a band, no,” said Richards on the subject of Led Zeppelin. “With John Bonham thundering down the highway in an uncontrolled 18-wheeler … He had cornered the market there. Jimmy is a brilliant player. But I always felt there was something a little hollow about it, you know?”
Richards refers to The Who’s lead singer Roger Daltrey as “all flash.” Keith Moon gets more of a pass, but not by much.
“[Moon] could play to [Pete Townshend] like nobody else in the world. But if somebody threw him into a session with somebody else, it was a disaster. There’s nothing wrong with that; sometimes you’ve got that one paintbrush, and you rock it.”
