No Deal In Place For Led Zeppelin Reunion
Earlier this week, Robert Plant’s website was very cryptic in hopes of a reunion for Desert Trip AKA “Oldchella.” “Any time now” sent the internet into overdrive on thoughts of a one off Led Zeppelin show. According to Billboard, the message on Plant’s web site “is more likely a tease to a forthcoming album than to an upcoming performance.
While other members would be on board, Page even had thoughts of recruiting Slash and Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy for a project, Plant has always stood firm against it. How firm? They were offered a rumored $14 million for the same event in 2016. One can appreciate Robert’s desire to protect the legacy of the band. Playing all the right notes is still fairly easy for Page and Jones, but hitting the iconic screams in Whole Lotta Love and Immigrant Song is a steeper task. Plus, don’t you feel a little ripped off when you find out your favorite singer used backing tapes?
