Page: 'Nobody in the band has even discussed' reunion; suggestion is 'just disgraceful'

This news originally appeared in an edition of the newsletter "On This Day In Led Zeppelin History."

As this year marks the 30th anniversary of the 1973 tour, it is timely to point out the quote from Jimmy Page's Q magazine interview in which he dismisses the recent rumors of a Led Zeppelin reunion: "That's just disgraceful" to suggest a reunion at this time, Page begins. "I started to hear [rumors] about this tour when I was in the studio putting together the DVDs and CD box set, and I immediately thought that the most ridiculous thing we could do is to put out a live album and then tour on the strength of something we did 30 years ago. Nobody in the band has even discussed it." Interviewer Nick Kent asks whether it is too late to dream of a Led Zeppelin reunion, and Page responds, "I never discounted it, but everyone has their own agendas. Maybe, at this point in time, it's just too late."
