Will Zep Step In For U2?

When Bono went down with a serious back injury that required emergency surgery last week (story), the Glastonbury Festival lost one of its biggest draws.  Even though the festival sold all its tickets before the lineup was even announced (story), organizers would love to deliver a great act to take the place of U2 to preserve its status as one of the top annual festivals. NME is reporting that Jimmy Page declined to rule out the possibility that Led Zeppelin might agree to step in to fill the slot.  The site quotes the guitarist as responding to a question about rumors Zeppelin was considering it by saying, 'I refuse to rule anything out'.  Robert Plant went on record earlier to call the idea of playing Glastonbury 'amazing', but did not offer the opinion specifically about doing it with Zeppelin as opposed to as a solo act or with some other group.  The former Zep vocalist has US tour dates slated for this summer with the Band Of Joy (story).
