It’s kind of amazing the attention this alleged Led Zeppelin one-off reunion show is getting, considering the latest source is a fan that bumped into Robert Plant on the street!?! Well, ok. And the buzz is growing, but will fans really “stampede” for tickets to see the most insanely decadent rock and roll band of all time propped up on stage with oxygen tanks and canes? That may be overstating it a bit, but Jimmy Page is 63. Can he honestly reel off riffs as complicated as the bulk of Led Zeppelin’s catalog with the same speed and finesse? Can Robert Plant hit those grizzled squeals like he used to? John Bonham sure as hell can’t drum like he used to all dead and shit. It just seems like an invitation to be let down. But some people claim, if you aren’t excited by this news, then you don’t like rock. I don’t know. I think I prefer to remember Led Zeppelin as the powerhouse it once was. This is way too little way too late.
Led Zeppelin reunion on again, maybe, off again, probably
