Robbie Williams reportedly torments Jimmy Page in a neighbourly feud

music news 14/01/2019

In a recent news story, Robbie Williams has been reportedly mocking Led Zeppelin's founder and guitarist, Jimmy Page, in a neighbourly feud.

For years, they have been at loggerheads since Williams has been trying to expand his West London home with an underground swimming pool and gym for his family. However, the Led Zeppelin guitarist had argued to the building council that he fears the construction would lead to damaging his historic 1875 Grade I-listed mansion's structure, known as the Tower House. 

After five long years of battling, the council decided to approve the construction as long as the vibration levels and ground movement are monitored and assured to the officials. Thus giving Williams a huge victory in this feud.

He obviously knows this upsets Mr Jimmy Page.

In the latest episode of this feud drama reveals that Williams has been taking a victory lap in the most petty behaviours to deal with this midlife crisis.

Telegraph reports that another neighbour who goes by the name of Johnny, wrote to the Kensington and Chelsea Council Planning Committee to report Williams' actions. "The committee may not have been aware that Robbie Williams has been playing loud 70's rock music on outside speakers when he views Jimmy Page outside his home," he writes.

"What's been most annoying is that Mr Williams has played rock arch-rival bands Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple. He obviously knows this upsets Mr Jimmy Page," he continues.

Williams also took it up a notch, reportedly going as far as to dress up as Led Zeppelin's frontman, Robert Plant.

Previously, Williams has been rejected twice on planning applications caused mainly by Page's objections. His builders were also once fined in 2017 for £4,670 ($8.792 NZD) over a noise regulation breach, also filed by Page.

In the same year, Williams had publicly apologised to Page after calling him "mentally ill". 

Page's PR agent has hopes to have a private meeting to settle the grievances between the two musicians. However, Williams' spokesperson had called him out, saying that it is "a complete fabrication and nonsense."
