Back when the surviving members of Led Zeppelin unveiled their concert film Celebration Day a few months ago, they were peppered with so many questions about getting back together that they were pushed to the point of cattiness. But perhaps all those requests to dust those Houses of the Holy tracks off one more time has weakened singer Robert Plant, who intimated that he wouldn’t oppose another run in Led Zeppelin.
“You need to speak to the Capricorns,” Plant told the Australian television show 60 Minutes in reference to his bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. ”I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”
As he did at the press conference for Celebration Day back in October, Plant reiterated that he was quite pleased with the way that one-off show turned out. “We just wanted to play and see what it was like and be good once,” he said of the 2007 performance in London in honor of the late Ahmet Ertegun. “It was time to be good—and we were.”
Celebration Day was a bit of a mess (most of the songs were pitched down to a more comfortable range for Plant’s voice, and many of the performances came across as flat and clinical—at least on film), though undoubtedly a lucrative one, and a full-blown reunion tour (or even just a handful of shows) would certainly be massively successful for all parties involved. And though the film didn’t reflect it, the mood in the building in 2007 was apparently electric.
What do you think? How much would you pay to see 75% of Led Zeppelin plus the late drummer’s son? And what have been your favorite recent reunions? Buy your stairway in the comments.
