Anyone keeping up with this story?










Led Zeppelin are in the midst of a mysterious countdown on Facebook. The band on Saturday posted the word "Five" in the stylized typeface of their fourth album, garnering nearly 37,000 "likes." Yesterday, they followed with "Four."

If they keep going, the countdown will end Thursday, revealing . . . well, who knows? Optimistic fans online are talking about a possible tour, though singer Robert Plant has made it clear he's not interested. The more likely scenario, The Guardian reports, is the announcement of a new DVD chronicling the surviving members' last reunion, at London's O2 Arena on December 10th, 2007.

I can't picture Plant touring again, but a show and a farewell DVD sound about right.
Plant has no interest at all, but maybe he finally gave the OK for someone else to sing.
Jason Bohnam has just wrapped up the last BCC album, so maybe that's an indicator that he'll be on board for percussion.

I have a hard time seeing Page call it Zep without Plant.

The band will be called "Who? Led Beatle."

Why did they switch to 1 instead of continuing roman numerals? They are reading this board and wanted to make sure my prediction was wrong.

Well now we know for sure there will be a reunion of the 3 living members... at least to receive this award:

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has announced the seven recipients of the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors. Buddy Guy, Led Zeppelin, David Letterman, Dustin Hoffman and ballerina Natalia Makarova will be honored by the Kennedy Center. Though Led Zeppelin will receive honors as a band, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant will each receive Kennedy Center Honors.

Led Zep reunited this morning! .... for a press conference. They would not deny or confirm a Reunion


Led Zeppelin Dodge Reunion Questions
Rockers skirt the subject at a press conference in London


Led Zeppelin dodged questions about possible reunion shows when surviving members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones gathered for a press conference to launch Celebration Day, the film of their one-off concert at London's O2 Arena in 2007, The Guardian reports.

"Let me ask you a question," responded Page when first asked about a reunion. "Have you seen the film? Did you enjoy it? Then we've done our job, haven't we?"

Plant kept up the evading, rather than flat out denying: When another reporter asked if Zeppelin would "do it again," the singer replied, "With you?"

The band also spoke about the concert film itself, which features all 16 cuts played at the 2007 concert, a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun, the iconic Atlantic Records head who first signed Zeppelin in 1968. The film will be released to theaters October 17th and will be available on multi-format home release on November 19th.

When asked whether any of the live tracks were overdubbed, Page noted that they were kept to a minimum while Plant admitted some of the lyrics at the end of "Kashmir" were edited "because I was running out of steam."

Filling in for late drummer John Bonham at that concert was his son, Jason. His performance was "absolutely monumental," Page said. "Nobody else could have done it."

It wasn't the first time the younger Bonham had drummed with the group, as Plant noted: "We played with him before, at his wedding," said the frontman. "But sadly he decided to go to bed at his wedding reception. Because I was a friend of the family from way back, I was the one who had to go to his room and get him out of bed."
