Keith Richards Unaware Of Led Zeppelin Reunion

Keith Richards has took a cheeky swipe at Led Zeppelin over their reunion gig last year. When asked about the return of the band by Uncut the guitarist said he didn’t even realize they had.
Richards is not a fan of the Kashmir hit makers and completely ignored all the hype leading up to the monumental gig.

When asked about the reunion, Richards says, "They had one? Well, well done Jimmy (Page) and Robert (Plant)... Stairway To Heaven don't make it for me, baby."

He added that he thought ‘Stairway To Heaven’ wasn’t even that good a song, we wonder who’s ruffled his feathers?

In the wide-ranging interview, Richards spoke about his relationship with Sir Mick, the band's energetic front man.

He said: "Mick's a maniac. He can't get up in the morning without knowing immediately who he's going to call.

"Meanwhile, I just go Thank God I'm awake' and wait for three or four hours before I do anything.

"He's a power freak and there's nothing we can do about it."

The star was speaking from his home in the Turks and Caicos Islands to promote 'Shine A Light', Martin Scorsese's film about the Stones.
Asked about Sir Mick's on-stage presence, Richards retorted: "Excuse me while I laugh. He's a bit vain, let's put it like that."

Well, in case Keef wants to see what he missed, here's a clip from the reunion show, their stunning version of "Kashmir" :
