Led Zeppelin Reunite (For Book)
Led Zeppelin famously got back together for one massive stadium show at London’s O2 Arena in 2007, with John Bonham’s son Jason handling drum duties. Before that, they joined forces with Phil Collins for Live Aid in 1985. And in the ’90s, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page released some acoustic music together as Page And Plant.
Otherwise, the surviving members of the band haven’t performed together in the almost four decades since the elder Bonham’s death in 1980. They’ve rarely even been photographed together. Much to Page’s frustration, Plant just doesn’t seem interested in reliving the band’s golden-god glory days.
So it’s noteworthy that Page, Plant, and John Paul Jones have teamed up on a new book called Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin. They even appeared together in a photo — see?
