Gene Simmons Tried To Reunite Led Zep?
With the release of "Celebration Day" last week, talk has resurfaced of the possibility of a Led Zeppelin reunion. As usual, the band has refuted claims that they might get back together in response to this. One of the stranger stories that has come about though, is the length that promoters have gone to in attempts to get the legendary band back together. Specifically, giving Kiss bassist Gene Simmons a basically unlimited budget in order to play negotiator between Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. "God Of Thunder" singer had the following to say when interviewed by The Sun newspaper: "In 2009/10 I was given a few hundred million dollars in an account by a large concert promoter and given the task of reaching out to Jimmy and Robert and trying to convince them to get back together. Of course, it didn't work out Robert just doesn't want to do it." In other Led Zep news, the band have released an official statement after receiving complaints about "Celebration Day", the film of their 2007 reunion at the O2 arena in London. Specifically fans have been taken issue with the fact that cinemas haven't been playing the sound track at the appropriate ear-splitting volume: "We have been made aware that at some screenings of 'Celebration Day', there have been complaints that the sound is not loud enough. "Omniverse, the film's distributors have been working with local cinema chains to ensure that this issue is addressed urgently. However, it is a good idea to check with the cinema before the screening that they will be playing it loud!" Kiss's new album, "Monster", is available in stores now. The DVD, Blu-Ray and CD versions of "Celebration Day" will be available from November 19th.
