UPDATE: Led Zeppelin reunion rumors bollocks

Posted June 28th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · 6 Comments

Robert Plant has shot down the news story that’s been circulating all week that claimed the remaining members of Led Zeppelin were reforming for a memorial concert honoring Atlantic Records’ founder Ahmet Ertegun. Plant said he has heard nothing about such a show, adding, “If there was one, then there wouldn’t be enough doctors to support it!” True enough. And I imagine that perishes the thought of there ever being one. It’s way too late, anyway.

    Who will Led Zeppelin have as an opening act on their 2008 US tour???
    The rumors have finally been silenced: Plant has personally tapped his illegitimate son’s band–MEAN VENUS–to open all 2008 shows.
    MEAN VENUS’ lead singer, J, when recently interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, spoke of his utter disbelief at the prospect:
    “I only found out he [Plant] was my dad a few years ago.
    My mum hid it from me for the majority of my life. So to actually be going on the road with my Dad is bloody outrageous!”…..

    That dude from mean venus aint opening for nobody. He died 6 months ago from heroin. I heard that was one of the reasons that Plant isn’t doing the tour too. After this Krauss b.s. he is done. Really ashame the Zep guys can’t honor Plant’s decision and understand that losing your son to heroin is something that most people never emotionally come back from.

    RIP J

    MEAN VENUS ruled!!!
