I saw Page and Plant on their tour with those Indian musicians a couple of years ago. Great concert, although both Page and Plant sounded a bit rusty. Those Indian guys were incredible. I think it's cool that they're going to tour under the LZ name again, now: lets hope that they'll visit Europe too.

... I also cannot begin to imagine how poor their show will be if they do this.  Who the hell can play drums for Led Zeppelin now and pull it off??<br>Jason Bonham is definitely not the right guy for the task.

He blew that Plant/Page crap out of the water. Criminy, I was there for Crimson, my favorite touring band, and he blew them out of the water! [/quote]<br><br><br>I echo your sentiments exactly. I always thought JPJ was the most talented in Zeppelin back in the day too. But, since his personality is so laid back, he didn't seem to flaunt it as well as the other three.

???<br>Come on folks. What goin on here? All this about JPJ bein the main man an all that. Agreed, he was an integral part in those days BUT, lets be honest. Who were LZ in the main? First, RP followed very closely by JP. Like, one without the other was, well, nothin as we know from the individual efforts. I just bought RP's latest "Dreamland". Christ, its hard goin! P&P had a chance but, on their own, no.<br>So, in short, any reunion of P&P playin the old stuff, creaky voice and the odd bum notes an all, and, providin the drummer, whoever he may be can keep up, GON YERSELS I say! I want to see / hear it!  ;D and, who really cares about the money. We are all jealous an thats that.
