GQ named Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page the "Rock God of the Year," since he is.
The interview is amazing. Some choice nuggets from the chat are below.
Asked about his drug issues, Page said, "How do you know I had a heroin problem? You don't know what I had or what I didn't have. All I will say is this: My responsibilities to the music did not change. I didn't drop out or quit working. I was there, just as much as anyone else was."
There you have it.
As for frontman Robert Plant's supposed lack of interest in Zeppelin getting back together, he said, "Sometimes I raise my eyebrows at the things he says, but that's all I can say about it. I don't make a point to read what he says about Zeppelin. But people will read me things he has said, and I will usually say, 'Are you sure you're quoting him correctly?' It's always a little surprising."
