The rumor is, obviously, and unfortunately, just that.


As to those who question whether "young people" would care....while on the surface that is a legitimate question (as it would be for any band that has done nothing for 26 yrs), at least where I live (NY) it would be waayy bigger than the Stones among the under 21 crowd---waayy bigger. Frankly, I am not sure it is even close.


All that said, it is kind of a moot point, at best.

Well kinda. I'm down at my place in the Sunshine state right now. But I also spend time on my farm in VA.

My grandpa was involved in politics. He had the Billy beer. I think the term he used for it was "swill."

Members Only jackets - what a gawd awful joke - yuk those were ugly!

LEGENDARY rockers Led Zeppelin are set to re-group after 22 years for a money-spinning stadium tour of America.

(it's been 27 years - 5 years off)


Robert, 54, Jimmy, 58, and 56-year-old John Paul met two weeks ago at the offices of their management firm Trinifold.

(Plant's 59, Page is 63, Jones is 61 - 5 years off)

This pretty much confirms that the article was written 5 years ago.

They didn't have that many hits because they didn't release that many singles - there was no need to. Their entire albums were great and that is what everybody bought. Their LPs did exceptionally well, much better than the Stones ever did.
