Led Zeppelin One-Off Reunion Show, Possibly A World Tour
DISCLAIMER: This might be unsubstantiated, and should only be taken at face value. Which, coming from a blog, means a plug nickel. And coming from me, less.
A Gigwise report states that we may see a one-off Led Zeppelin reunion in honor of the passing of Ahment Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records. As you read this, thousands of Zep fans are re-reading The Lord of the Rings to bone up on the obscure lyrical references on the off chance Page and Co. might embark on a world tour.
World tour? Ah, yes! If the one-off London show goes well, the surviving band members (Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. The late John Bonham's son, Jason, will join on drums) are willing to climb the "Stairway to Heaven" as long as the chemistry gets kept from the "Gallows Pole".
Unsubstantiated rumors and lousy puns. Only here, folks. Only here.
