The Final Nail in the Coffin of a Led Zeppelin Reunion

Plant spoke to the press after recently attending a Them Crooked Vultures show whose members include ex-bandmate John Paul Jones. "I feel so far away from heavy rock now. It's quite odd how mine and John's paths seem to have crossed over. We've sort of gone into each other's world's a bit." Before getting involved with his new group, Jones had produced a number of roots and bluegrass albums for a variety of artists.
It looks like there is now almost no chance of seeing a Led Zeppelin reunion by the three surviving members of the group. Robert Plant just doesn't want to rock anymore.

Plant also admitted that his ears "bled for two days" after the Led Zeppelin reunion show at the O2 Arena in London in 2008.

"For me, it's no longer to do with vanity, ego and visible success. It's just about getting down into the earth of music. I spent three or four years never playing a Zeppelin song from 1981 onwards, because I didn't want to lean on Zeppelin. I've gone from being in that huge band to picking up the pieces of my own gift."

At least he's not doing it anyway just for the money. I respect his decision to stay true to music instead of selling out to pile millions of dollars on top of the millions he already has.
