Led Zeppelin Readies Fall Reissue Bonanza
cool stuff, i hope they dig up some new unreleased songs to add in. i liked the fact that they added those in the last few live and best of collections.
I'm looking forward to the new releases as well, but what really gets my attention is the highlighted part:
There have been various rumors for years. If it finally happens this time, I will not miss it for anything.
Really looking forward to the reissue of TSRTS, and a possible reunion tour would be unreal.. but yet another "best of" cd is pretty uncalled for. But it seems they'll be releasing it via itunes for once, so maybe they're looking to gain a new audience if they do have plans for a reunion.
There's also a rumor going around that Page will reunite with Jeff Beck for a Yardbirds tour, which could be interesting too.
I'll pick up the DVD, but the CDs don't seem like must-haves to me--and I'm a pretty big Zeppelin fan. "How the West Was Won" is a better live CD to me. The sound is better and the performances are better, so a few extra songs probably won't be enough to make me go out and buy an album I already own.
edit to add: I'm not holding my breath for a reunion tour because those rumors are always going around, but I'll need to change my pants if it does happen. The Page/Plant No Quarter tour was amazing, so I can only imagine how good it would be with John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham added in.
Exactly. The rumors were really hot back in 1989-90 when I first started college. Then they got hot again a few years ago. But nothing ever materialized. If it happens this time, I too will shit myself.
I think the closest they came aside from the one-off stuff like Live-Aid was after Page and Plant did "Walking Into Clarksdale." I read an interview where Page said he wanted to bring Jones and Jason Bonham into the mix and do a Zeppelin reunion after that, but Plant was worn out from the touring schedule and didn't want to go out and do another tour that would have been even bigger and longer than what they'd just done. That's what ended the Page/Plant reunion. I don't remember what magazine that was in, though. It was one of theose British magazines that sometimes devotes special issues to one just one band and that issue was all about Zeppelin.
There were also alot of hard feelings because JPJ was left out. He called them out for it at the R&R HOF induction...
Yeah, that was such a great uncomfortable moment. I believe he thanked them for remembering his phone number.
You got it exactly right. He said:
"I'd like to thank my friends for remembering my phone number."
im hoping for a coverdale page reunion myself
That surprised me, up until that time I thought he was the one that didn't want to be part of the reunion.
I hope they work it out for one last tour. It'll probably be a disappointment, but nothing short of death will prevent me from seeing it.
If it happens, I'll sell my car, home, and/or ass to get there.
A zep reunion isn't something a fan of sound misses out on and has a clear conscience about afterwards.
I realize I just posted that nothing short of death will stop me from a reunion concert, but I think I'll tap out at the ass.
Well, if I were speaking figuratively, I should've said my cock.
But yeah, you know what I mean
