The Telegraph reports that singer Robbie Williams has reportedly resorted to some peculiar methods of annoyance in the ongoing “bitter feud over a basement extension” with his neighbor, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page.
The source wrote:
“The pair had been at loggerheads ever since Williams submitted plans for a basement gym and pool at his £17 million West London home five years ago.
“Page, 74, objected as he feared excavation work would damage his 1875 Grade I-listed mansion.
“The musician has lived at the property, known as Tower House and designed by William Burges, for 40 years and referred to it as ‘one of the most historic buildings in the borough.'”
Page’s PR agent Mark Borkowski said he hoped to arrange a meeting between the two musicians sometime this month to settle their issues. In a letter he wrote to Kensington and Chelsea councilors, Mark also detailed some of the mentioned behavior Williams has been allegedly displaying.
The letter reads:
“The committee may not have been aware that Robbie Williams has been playing loud ’70s rock music on outside speakers when he views Jimmy Page outside his home.
“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.
“There have also been some reports that Robbie Williams has dressed up to imitate iconic Led Zeppelin frontman and lead singer Robert Plant.
