Don’t believe the hype, folks: Led Zeppelin will not be recording any new material or heading out on tour, with or without Robert Plant.
According to Jimmy Page’s manager the band are officially “over”.
Despite rumors over past months that the remaining members of Led Zeppelin would record new material and tour after replacing frontman Robert Plant, “Led Zeppelin are over,” said Jimmy Page’s manager to MusicRadar. “If you didn’t see them in 2007, you missed them. It’s done. I can’t be any clearer than that.”
There had been suggestions that the band might look for a Plant replacement and head out on tour regardless, but now it seems that those rumours are not to be believed.
Perhaps it is time to lay the Led to rest?
This comes just after contradictory news on Wednesday that Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham were ready to move on without Plant, according to statements by Page’s manager, Peter Mensch, to BBC 6 Music.
