Iconic frontman Robert Plant has given us somewhat of an unexpected hint during the interview on Australian edition of "60 Minutes". Apart from talking about his younger days and solo career, the vocalist has dropped a big one on us suggesting that Led Zeppelin might have a reunion sometime during next year.

The singer went on to blame his bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones for not taking enough initiative, adding he is "not the bad guy" and that the silence is caused by their horoscope.

"The two other guys are Capricorns and... they don't say a word. But they are quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me. I'm not the bad guy... You need to speak to the Capricorns because I've got nothing to do in 2014."

The band has held their last concert back in 2007 at O2 Arena in London, with John Bonham's son Jason handling the drum duties. As far as the more current events go, the band is currently negotiating an online stream of their back catalogue.

We know we shouldn't get our hopes up too high with this kind of story, but it's the Led Zep reunion we're talking about, quite possibly the biggest rock band of all time. With the fans anxiously awaiting this for many years now, we can only hope that this time they're serious about it.

So this might turn out to be pretty big, right? Are you keeping your fingers crossed or have you simply given up hope for the Zeppelin reunion after all these years? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Next step is Pink floyd has to get back together that would be awesome if they toured together I could get Comfortably Numb on the Stairway to Heaven

    No brother, next step is for Zeppelin to actually do the reunion. After that, and after we all get a chance to see them...then we will move on to other bands, even ones as great as the Floyd. and maybe syd barret?
    chrisa94
    TBH a Syd Barret solo tour seems more likely than a Pink Floyd reunion right now...

    Led Zep should tour with U2!

    The book was so-so, but When Giants Walked The Earth was the perfect title for a book on Zep. Though, really, that whole era was like that...

    In terms of Zep this is a pretty big hint that at least Robert is happy to entertain the option, Jonesy is as active as ever with TCV and everything, and as Page was the most vocal directly after the o2, this is tantalising news!!

    you mean 'morello denies all new album claims.'

    Indeed, won't happen. Too good to be true. Plus they just assume a wild dream will com true because someone says the capricorns are to blame. I mean, come on man.

    In tomorrows news 'Tool frontman Maynard Keenan announces new Led Zeppelin Album to come out this year!'

    It's quite funny how at the mention of "I'm free in 2014", the internet explodes and extrapolates that "reunion in 2014". I know it's more than we've had before but let's chill a little, we are setting ourselves up to be let down again. Having said that REUNION IN 2014 WOULD BE SO AWESOME PLEASE DO IT.

    I just hope the reunion extends further than London. PLEASE DO A UK ARENA TOUR!

    I just hope the reunion extends further than UK. Please do a WORLD arena tour!

    Chances for me to see Led Zep live from 0%, to 1,2% (I live in Denmark) Either way, this is great news!

    I got my dad celebration day for christmas this year, we watched it that night and it was absolutely incredible. jason bonham did an excellent job filling in and the rest of them never seem to have missed a beat for their days. id LOVE to see them in a reunion and im sure my dad would too, but im also sure tickets would be well over $150 so i doubt itll happen unfortunately

    Ughh I tried so hard to get tickets to the London show. Please don't toy with my emotions again with another one off. Can only hope for a concert in NYC.

    I gave up on this. and to be honest, maybe it`s better if a reunion with a big tour and maybe even a new record won`t happen. on the other hand i would sell my grandma to the circus just to have the chance to see them live. it`s crazy.
    leony03
    As much respect as I have for LedZep, can they just decide whether they're coming back or not? If they do, lets hope its longer than one date at like 200 a ticket or whatever it was.

    First time my heart jumped while reading a headline in AGES. Hope this time it turns out to be true.
