Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and Jeff Buckley were so overcome with emotion when they first met each other that they both teared up, according to claims from Fishbone member Chris Dowd.

In an interview with Uncut Magazine Dowd, who was a close friend of Buckley, said: "Jeff told me they cried. They actually cried when they met each other. Jimmy heard himself in in Jeff and Jeff was meeting his idol. Jimmy Page was the godfather of Jeff's music. A lot of people thought Tim [Buckley, Jeff's father] was the influence on Jeff, but it was really Zeppelin.

Dowd further explained Buckley's Led Zeppelin obsession, saying: "He could play all the parts on all the songs. John Paul Jones' basslines. Page's guitar parts. The synthesiser intro on 'In The Light' - he could play it on guitar and it would sound just like it. And then he would get on the fucking drums and exactly mimic John Bonham."

Meanwhile, Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has hinted that the band might consider a reunion tour in 2014. Speaking to 60 Minutes in Australia, Plant blamed the other two surviving members of Zeppelin for the lack of news of a new tour. "They don't say a word. They're quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me. I'm not the bad guy... You need to see the Capricorns - I've got nothing to do in 2014", he said.
