In yet another chapter in the story of the Zeppelin that has so far refused to get off the ground, a new report has surfaced that says the whole thing has been called off.
MusicRadar is reporting that they have been informed by Jimmy Page’s manager that Led Zeppelin is done for good. “Led Zeppelin are over! If you didn’t see them in 2007 [when they played a one-off reunion at London’s O2 Arena], you missed them. It’s done. I can’t be any clearer than that.” That’s what Peter Mensch reportedly told MusicRadar.
The report also goes on to say that the group tried out a few singers to take the place of Robert Plant but none of them worked out, so Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham decided to call it quits.
Apparently, Mensch is a bit tired of hearing about Led Zeppelin reunion plans and wished that people would stop talking about it. I seriously doubt that will happen unless fans hear directly from Jimmy Page or John Paul Jones saying that they have decided to abandon plans for any type of Led Zeppelin reunion.
As this recent report is hitting the news, there are other reports stating that the group is still seeking a singer to replace Plant and that a tour is in the works. Not only that, some reports are indicating that the group will also be recording new music, and have quoted Page’s manager (yeah, the same one quoted by MusicRadar) as their source!
This latest turn of events has probably set heads spinning around the world as millions of Led Zeppelin fans continue to wonder which story to believe.
Will there ever be any kind of Led Zeppelin reunion? Who the hell knows, but until the final word comes directly from either Page or Jones, the speculation is bound to continue.
Anyone for another bucket of popcorn? This drama doesn’t look like it will be ending anytime soon.
