It wasn’t that long ago when we got word of some unflattering comments directed at Led Zeppelin by Jack Bruce. Bruce, who was chatting with Classic Rock Magazine, referred to Zeppelin as “crap,” among other things, but later said that his comments were made in jest.
Well now we are hearing that Paul Weller, best known, perhaps, for his years spent with The Jam, also has a few comments to share regarding the status of Led Zeppelin these days.
“I’ve no interest whatsoever to go and see people reform, you know. I’m happy with what they’ve done at the time and the records and your memories and that’s it really.” he says. Weller also says he would never take part in any reunion of The Jam.
At least he did not refer to them as “crap,” and simply appears to be someone who would rather remember Led Zeppelin as they were before the untimely death of drummer John Bonham brought the whole thing to an end.
One wonders who will check in next with their thoughts on Led Zeppelin’s plans to tour next year without Robert Plant and whether or not they will bill themselves as Led Zeppelin or use another name. It will be difficult for many fans to think of that lineup as Led Zeppelin without the iconic Robert Plant front and center.
