Neighbours ex-Take That singer and Led Zeppelin guitarist have clashed over pool plan
The pop star Robbie Williams is “blasting Black Sabbath music” at his neighbour, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, over a home extension row, a complaint to their local council has said.
The musicians, who live in Holland Park, west London, clashed after the ex-Take That singer was granted conditional approval last year to build a basement swimming pool.
Page is concerned the excavation work will damage his 1875 Grade I-listed mansion.
A letter to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council, which is signed “Jonny”, says that Williams has been playing Black Sabbath to annoy his neighbour.
It also states the singer has played Pink Floyd and Deep Purple songs at high volume, knowing “this upsets” the Led Zeppelin star.
The correspondent adds that Williams has also dressed up to imitate Led Zeppelin’s frontman Robert Plant by “wearing a long hair wig, and stuffing a pillow under his shirt in an attempt to mock or imitate Mr Robert Plant’s beer belly that he has acquired in his older age”.
