Led Zeppelin Reunion

A tribute concert dedicated to the late Atlantic Records cofounder Ahmet Ertegun held on Dec. 10, 2007, contained the only onstage musical reformation this century of original Led Zeppelin members Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones. With Jason Bonham on drums to take the place of his dearly departed father, original member John Bonham, the band played a two-hour concert that is likely never to be repeated.

Led Zeppelin's reunion in 2007 was witnessed in person by fewer than 20,000 people. Although this special event was filmed, no plans have been announced for its official release. Photographs, amateur recordings, and the firsthand accounts and memories of those who attended are all that can be relied upon to attest to the magic of that single night. The evening is widely praised.

Many posts on Lemon Squeezings since the 2007 concert have centered on the chances of further reunion activity. The popular press have persisted in spreading the myth of an attempt to replace Robert Plant in Led Zeppelin. In reality, Page and Jones considered forming a new band in 2008, bringing in Bonham to help audition singers. Their new band, which they themselves never considered to be Led Zeppelin, failed to materialize.

Since then, Page has retreated, Jones has formed a new band in Them Crooked Vultures, and Bonham has stayed busy with both a new band and something close to a Led Zeppelin tour. Lemon Squeezings will report new developments as they occur.
