Zeppelin Reunion Prospects Fade

Robert Plant agreed to reunite with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones in 1988 at the 40th Anniversary Concert for Atlantic Records, at a 2007 tribute concert for the label's Ahmet Ertegun, and for a O2 Arena show the following year.  That last show seems to have convinced Plant to never do it again.  Plant says he has always thought Led Zeppelin ended as a band the night drummer John Bonham died during a night of binge drinking 30 years ago.  After attending a recent concert by Them Crooked Vultures, the hard rocking band Jones plays bass with, Plant commented on how far removed from that style of music he feels now.  He also said that  the O2 Arena show was so loud his ears 'bled for two days'.  Even if that was not the literal truth, it serves notice that getting together with his former band mates to perform Led Zeppelin songs is about a likely a prospect. Ironically, segments of Zep songs have been cropping up during concerts Plant is doing with his current Roots Rock group, Band Of Joy (story).
