Robert Plant would be up for a Led Zeppelin reunion in 2014

Back when the surviving members of Led Zeppelin unveiled their concert film Celebration Day a few months ago, they were peppered with so many questions about getting back together that they were pushed to the point of cattiness. But perhaps all those requests to dust those Houses of the Holy tracks off one more time has weakened singer Robert Plant, who intimated that he wouldn’t oppose another run in Led Zeppelin.

“You need to speak to the Capricorns,” Plant told the Australian television show 60 Minutes in reference to his bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones. “I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.” READ FULL STORY

Led Zeppelin continue to shoot down reunion rumors, get justifiably annoyed at New York press conference

Yesterday, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin (plus honorary member Jason Bonham, son of late drummer John) pulled back the curtain on Celebration Day, the concert film that captures the group’s sorta-reunion performance at the O2 Arena in London in 2007.

(The “sorta” is because of Bonham—sure, he’s the son of the original drummer, but nobody would have allowed Sean Lennon to front the other three Beatles and still call it the Beatles.)

The film will be in theaters for one night only next Wednesday, October 17, and will follow with an album/DVD/Blu-ray release on November 19. If there’s one thing the band wants to drive home with this release, it’s that this is most likely the last time you’ll be seeing them together, at least for now.

At the post-screening press conference at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the question of a reunion kept coming up, and the band’s responses ranged from politely terse (John Paul Jones simply said “Sorry”) to cheekily hostile (Robert Plant called one inquirer a “schmuck”).

Later, guitarist Jimmy Page was a little more definitive. “It’s disappointing for people when the answer is no,” he said. “But that’s what it is now.” READ FULL STORY

Brian Wilson on being 'fired' from the Beach Boys: 'I was completely blindsided'

If there’s a lesson to be learned from the last few days in the saga of the Beach Boys, it’s that when dealing with conflict, it’s probably best to just sit down and talk about it, rather than release competing articles in the Los Angeles Times and make us feel sad for everyone involved.

Last week, Beach Boy Mike Love (who, like Axl Rose before him, controls the rights to the name of the band that made him famous) wrote a lengthy piece in the Times about how, contrary to the reports in the mean old media, he did not “fire” Brian Wilson from the group for a run of tour dates in the fall.

Not to be outdone, Wilson countered with a lengthy newspaper-hosted diatribe of his own this morning. “As far as I know I can’t be fired—that wouldn’t be cool,” Wilson wrote. “The negativity surrounding all the comments bummed me out. What’s confusing is that by Mike not wanting or letting Al, David and me tour with the band, it sort of feels like we’re being fired.” READ FULL STORY
