Led Zeppelin

While any hope of a Led Zeppelin reunion was again put on hold after Jimmy Page announced plans for his own 2016 solo tour, drummer Jason Bonham revealed in a new interview that he still believes that the rock legends will eventually reunite. “In my heart of hearts”¦ I do believe we will play together again,” said Bonham, who filled in for his late father John on drums at Led Zeppelin’s one-off reunion show in December 2007. “It remains to be seen if it will be in public or privately, but I do think we will play again.”

Although Bonham believes a Led Zeppelin reunion will happen, Plant didn’t share his optimism in a 2014 interview with Rolling Stone. “You’re going back to the same old shit,” Plant said. “A tour would have been an absolute menagerie of vested interests and the very essence of everything that’s shitty about big-time stadium rock. We were surrounded by a circus of people that would have had our souls on the fire. I’m not part of a jukebox.”

Page also recently revealed his own plans to embark on a 2016 tour with a “totally different” band backing him. “There will be all sorts of material from different eras,” Page said (via Guitar World). “Right across the board; that’s the way I’m seeing it. But like I said, there will be surprises.”
