Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night (12/3), a rare late night TV appearance for the group, but for an interview and unfortunately not to perform. Still, it was only one of few public interviews the band has done this year, after releasing their new concert film/album, Celebration Day. You can watch the videos of the interview below (via The Audio Perv).

it is like they are teasing everyone, first a concert movie, then the Kennedy Center, then Letterman. Either get back out on the road or JPJ should get back to TCV.

Fact: Jimmy Page HATES Robert Plant.

9:46. How much money did they make at the benefit show they played at O2 a few years ago you mean?

Coachella can't afford them.

Led Zeppelin broke up at just the right time to keep their dignity intact without embarrassing themselves too much. In comparison to their other albums, In Through The Out Door and Presence were not nearly as good as the rest.
Robert Plant is a pompous asshole, but he's the one that his been holding back the reunion all these years, and I actually agree with it.
One my favorite bands ever, and I would never want to tarnish that.

Letterman has turned into such an old fart.

This is some weird download file site. Do you have the YouTube links?

10:35 - agreed. May they never play together again.

Steve is too retarded to look that up himself. Do your homework

Letterman doesn't seem to know anything about these guys.

Please don't tell me they're better than Grimes . . . .

They are doing too much publicity right now as a band for there not to be something down the road in the works. First they attend the Movie Premiere at the Zeigfeld, then they go on Letterman.

You will be seeing more of them.

I'll bet they tour soon...

Keep wishing, 11:46. The only reason they appeared on Letterman is because both Letterman and Zeppelin were just honored at the Kennedy Center. It's airing later this month. It's not like the band ASKED to receive that honor. They were one of the artists involved, so it wasnt exactly a leap in logic for them to do an interview on Letterman last night, who was also just honored.

They made a DVD of the O2 show because they knew it was a big deal and people would want to see it. They havent shown the least bit interest in playing again throughout all these years after the break-up.

Where do you think Grimes is on Robert Plant's best of 2012 list?

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 11:57 AM

In their peak, one of the greatest rock bands ever. But let them die.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 11:57 AM

Band is just not the same without Jimmy Page's pitch-black dyed hair, just my 2 cents.

11:52 - JP & JPJ have said repeatedly that they want to tour again. If I recall corectly, they were even considering alternate singers (Steven Tyler) but RP has always said no.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 12:17 PM

yeah, JP confirmed the search for alternate singers in the Rolling Stone interview this month. He also said LZ will never perform again, but then contradicted himself shortly after that

Led Zeppelin did keep their rep in check. If they carried on like the Rolling Stones (well past their prime) it would have diminished them slightly. Currently they have no bad albums. The Stones now have more SHIT albums than GOOD albums. That is sad. When Mick Taylor or Bill Wyman left they should have called it a day.

In the words of Robert Plant:

"I"M A GOLDEN GOD!!!!!!!!!"

quick somebody change robert plant's diaper!

Lotta crust up on that stage, Letterman included.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 12:46 PM

bottom line-page and jones can play the LZ music, but plant's voice cannot do what it did - not even close. he's better suited for what he is doing now.

Posted by anonymous | December 4, 2012 12:55 PM

10:35-Led Zep toured after Presence-and your right at that point they were a shell of the early 70's band. drugs and Plant's squeeky voice made most of the shows awful.

These guys are no beach fossils!

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2012 1:03 PM

I'm aware of the guys trying out other singers, but guess what? Even if they followed through with the idea, that's not Lede Zeppelin. That's 2 guys from Zeppelin with shitty Steven Tyler or fuckin Myles Kennedy from Alter Bridge.

It's like Oasis. When Noel Gallagher quit in 2009, Liam and the rest of the band wanted to carry on. They were smart to go under a different name (Beady Eye). They would have been laughed at if they went by Oasis. Noel Gallagher drove that band to the top of the mountain with his songs.

is someone comparing Oasis to Led Zeppelin?
