While there are an extreme amount of rock fans in addition to the overall amount of music fans that would clamor to see a Led Zeppelin reunion, for many reasons, it appears that won’t be happening. During a recent interview with Goldmine Magazine, longtime rock photographer Neal Preston – an individual who was the only photographer to go on tour with Led Zeppelin is on record stating as such. This Led Zeppelin icon just insults one of his fellow bandmates.
Here, Preston proclaims that it all comes back to the group’s frontman Robert Plant indicating that Plant does not want to play that type of music anymore. Furthermore, he would also go on to say that the beloved Led Zeppelin singer was offered a great deal of money to put together a Led Zeppelin reunion for the epic ‘Desert Trip’ festival, the six-day music festival that took place on October 7–9 and 14–16, 2016. That particular festival was headlined by legendary classic rock acts such as Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters, and The Who.

“Robert [Plant] just doesn’t want to make that music anymore. They offered them so much money for the ‘Old Chella’ thing, the desert trip show. It’s never going to happen! I don’t want to see a 75-year-old Jimmy Page duckwalking across the stage.”
Neal would also then follow up by saying: “I know that the show at the O2 in London got great reviews, but it’s not Led Zeppelin! It’s three guys from Led Zeppelin and Jason Bonham.”
The outfit, Playing For Change recently offered their fresh take on the classic Led Zeppelin track ‘When the Levee Breaks, Iconic member of the original group John Paul Jones can be heard on the song. However, in a recent statement released by Playing For Change, Jones revealed how he believes the meaning of the track has evolved over the years.
“It seems that little has changed since 1927, or even 2005 with Katrina. It’s still a really powerful track, both musically and lyrically,”
