Don't Bet on New Led Zeppelin Reunion Rumors

There's talk all over the internet that Robert Plant is about to announce a reunion with Led Zeppelin. We wouldn't count on it.

The singer's website is now just a black screen with the words "Any time now..." in white which a host of people have taken to mean that he and his Zeppelin bandmates are about to get back together. The rumors were further fueled on the site Feel Numb which said that they talked to "well placed sources" that said the reformed group was signing on for the 2017 edition of Desert Trip.

I doubt Robert will ever do that. That'd be cool though.

I don't see it ever happening. Plant is too focused on his solo career.

Robert Plant Reacts To Latest Led Zeppelin Reunion Question

With the recent release of Carry Fire, his eleventh studio album, Robert Plant has put out more albums than his famed previous band Led Zeppelin. Still, his career as the lead singer of the band that pioneered modern hard rock music will always overshadow everything else he does.

Even though it's been almost four decades since Led Zeppelin disbanded, Plant was recently asked about a potential 2018 reunion in an interview on Team Rock. His answer: "All these magazines and internet platforms should be supporting new music and help new musicians to find an audience, instead of dwelling on the old crap all the time. It's like there is nothing new and exciting out there any more, when in fact there is. So stop living in the past. Open your ears and your eyes. It's not that difficult, is it?"

Re: Don't Bet on New Led Zeppelin Reunion Rumors

I fully agree with the sentiment. Don't get me wrong, I grew up a huge Led Zeppelin fan, and I was always disappointed that they packed it in after Bonzo's death. But for the last several years now, I've familiarized myself with Robert Plant's solo catalogue, and I'm a huge fan of Fate Of Nations (1993) and Mighty ReArranger (2005). I admit I haven't heard Carry Fire yet, but I'll get there eventually! As much as the idea of a Led Zeppelin reunion appeals to people, I think it comes more from nostalgia and their wanting to feel the same way they did when they - and the band - were much younger. Personally, I think that any musical artist should be independent and forward-thinking and not feel obligated to service the nostalgia market. I like to think of my favorite musicians as always being able to exist in the present tense, and being respected for their newer work, instead of being trapped in the casino-circuit cycle, conjuring up memories of "Remember back in the day...?" for aging boomers (and eventually aging X'ers such as myself!). To quote a line from Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell: "But in a way, you know / For us these are the days." (Classic Girl) Would that all musicians possessed the sense of independence that Plant has.

Yes, I know that - for the most part - all rockers' later, more mature output inevitably tends to suffer in comparison with the passion of their youth. But hey! Like John Lennon said regarding Beatles nostalgia, we've got all the old albums and CD's if we want to reminisce, right? You should always think of your heroes as moving onwards (if not necessarily always upwards), continuing to do new things and maybe even pulling out some new surprises or two from time to time.

BTW, supposedly Jimmy Page has been working on new stuff for years now. I, for one, would sure love to hear it...
