Led Zeppelin press conference? Sounds fishy

The reunion rumors just get larger and larger.

The latest report is now from Billboard, saying a press conference will be held Wednesday that ought to shed some light on everything.

OK, when was the last time there was ever a Led Zeppelin press conference? Was it 1970 in New York, the clip included on Led Zeppelin DVD as a bonus feature? Does the Drake Hotel robbery aftermath in 1973 with Peter Grant giving the middle finger count?

Anyway, the thought of Led Zeppelin having a press conference is very foreign to me. It's rather unprecedented in the post-Zep era. The suggestion that there will be one sounds a bit fishy to me -- just when everything else was pointing to the reunion rumors being right.

I'll believe it when I see an official word. And if that happens Wednesday, Sept. 12, great. And if not, well, I'll just keep on being joyful that the band was as great as it was during its years of performing, which did begin 39 years ago today lest we forget.


  1. Sir, just how accurate is the intelligence on a reunion? This would be my chance to see the best band ever. I do not want to get too hopeful since the workload on the LZ members must be astounding and there wife's may go hysterical since they know the tremendous amount of work behind the scene. Not forgetting everyone involved in any way. v/R

  2. Multiple sites -- Billboard, NME and Uncut -- have all reported there will be a press conference regarding Led Zeppelin tomorrow. One said it will be at 4 p.m. British time, or 11 a.m. Eastern. As of right now, your guess is as good as mine as to how accurate the rumors are of a reunion. If there really is a press conference tomorrow, we'll soon find out for sure.
