When asked why Led Zeppelin waited until now to make a documentary, Jimmy Page replied that the band had been pitched many angles over the years, but most directors wanted to concentrate on “anything but the music” with their treatment.
Becoming Led Zeppelin focuses on the most important part of Led Zeppelin’s legacy, he said.
“It’s everything about the music and what would make the music tick,” Page explained. “And it’s complete versions of songs, not just a little sample and then talking heads. This is something in a totally different genre.”
