Robert Plant Hints at Led Zeppelin Reunion

After brushing off rumors of a Led Zeppelin reunion for several years, Robert Plant has hinted that the legendary rock band might reunite in 2014. In an interview with Australia’s 60 Minutes, Plant says, “[Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones] are Capricorns. They don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me,” said Plant. “I’m not the bad guy . . . You need to see the Capricorns – I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”

Led Zeppelin reunion rumors have circulated since the band reunited for a performance at London’s O2 Arena on December 10, 2007. While his bandmates have openly discussed another reunion, Plant has continually shot down the idea in order to focus on his roots/Americana solo material. The three surviving members of Led Zeppelin participated in a series of Q&As timed with the release of their concert film Celebration Day late last year but refused to comment on the possibility of another reunion. They also declined to perform at last year’s Kennedy Center Honors concert, despite being honored at the prestigious event.

It took them about 6 weeks of rehearsal for the one-off show in 2007. That was the time to go do a limited number of shows and call it a day. Maybe they should have done mini-residency at the RAH and dived deep into their catalog.
