Possible Zeppelin reunion permanently scrapped


Led Zeppelin fans had reason to rejoice after three of the original four members: bassist John Paul Jones, drummer Jason Bonham (son of the late John Bonham who played at the Zeppelin reunion in late 2007) and guitarist Jimmy Page entertained the thought of a short reunion tour, even in the absence of singer Robert Plant, who shunned the idea from the outset.

According the 63 year old bassist, however, that idea has gone permanently by the wayside after auditions with a few session vocalists proved uninspiring - and while it may be bummer for fans, Jones isn't going to lose any sleep.

"Jimmy and I rehearsed a bit with Jason Bonham and we couldn't really agree on singers and that fell by the wayside," Jones said in an interview with BBC 6 Music. "Then this came along and to be honest, I'm really happy."

Jones will continue to play and tour with Them Crooked Vultures, and Jason Bonham will continue his various drumming projects.
