Jason Bonham, however, believes that he and the group will definitely play together again.READ MORE

Led Zeppelin Share Rough Mix of "Houses Of The Holy" From Upcoming 'Physical Graffiti' Reissue [LISTEN]

Buzz 17:09PM EDT

Next month, Led Zeppelin will be releasing the remastered edition of their classic 1975 album, 'Physical Graffiti,' with a bonus disc of alternate mixes, and today the rough mix of one of the album's standout tracks "Houses of the Holy" has been shared, which you can check out below. Even if you're not an audiophile, the differences between this version and the original are quite obvious — the bass is more prominent, the drums are looser, Robert Plant's vocals (particularly the backing vocals) are pushed up in the mix, and there are less guitar overdubs. It's a fascinating listen for diehard Zeppelin fans, but you probably won't prefer this to the album version.READ MORE

Heart's Ann Wilson Would be up for Fronting Led Zeppelin, Says She Would Jam with Jimmy Page Anytime

Buzz 20:26PM EDT

The three remaining members of Led Zeppelin may never reunite. Fans of the band have probably accepted that fact even though stories have surfaced saying that deals are in the works (and then they've turned out to be false). The main issue is between Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. Page is for a reunion, Plant is against one. John Paul Jones probably doesn't care anymore. So the possibility of the band playing some shows with another lead singer exists, right? Enter Heart's Ann Wilson.READ MORE

Robert Plant Talks About Why He Won't Reunite with Led Zeppelin; Jimmy Page Talks Led Zep on 'Ellen' [WATCH]

Buzz 12:59PM EDT

Former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant recently shed some light on why he does not want to reunite with his infamous band. The singer has been a part of other groups, which has allowed him to experiment with different genres and meet other artists. He played with John Bonham in Band of Joy before Led Zep, and he currently records with his superb Sensational Space Shifters band. "I was 19 years old then — why would I ever compromise from then on?" he told Sound Opinions about his Band of Joy days. He was looking for "a colorful, exciting future," one that brought together Led Zep and eventually led him other places. "I cut the cloth according to my needs," he added. "This, to me, is I think one of the most surprising, exciting and stimulating and also mostly heartfelt periods of my time as a singer." Plant revived Band of Joy in 1977, performing with the group until 1983. He also toured with the band in 2010. In 2007 he had a wildly successful release featuring Alison Krauss titled "Raising Sand," and his most recent album with the Sensational Space Shifters, "Lullaby and ... the Ceaseless Roar," has performed well on the charts. Bandmate Jimmy Page made it clear on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that he is not the reason why Led Zeppelin has not reunited since 2007.READ MORE

Robert Plant Deems $800 Million Led Zeppelin Reunion Story 'Rubbish'

Buzz 13:05PM EDT

Fans far and wide marveled at the recent reports of former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant ripping up an $800 million contract for a reunion tour with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. The proposed deal was allegedly bankrolled by Virgin founder Richard Branson, but Plant's publicist quickly denied the claims after the story began to garner attention. The publicist's statement on behalf of Plant was that the whole thing was "rubbish," "The Guardian" reported. Now all we are left with is a fictional story from the "Daily Mirror" about how Page, Jones and original drummer John Bonham's son Jason all signed on to do a 35-date tour for major money, and Plant ripped the document up in front of the promoters. To sweeten the deal, Branson even reportedly offered to rename one of his jets "The Starship," in reference to the band's old private plane, to take the musicians to different venues.READ MORE
