Led Zep To Record New Material?
119
Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page has suggested that the recently reformed band may be on the verge of recording new material. As previously reported, the band have only reformed for a one off reunion show at the O2 Arena in London on November 26th. Page has said in a new interview, however, that he believes the band will find it hard to resist the urge to record new material. "Look, I'd be really surprised if there wasn't - you know, I mean I just know the way we are. We're musicians...as we're playing we'll probably be coming up with all manner of things. "And that will be fun. I mean that's what it's all about. Let's do the O2 show, shall we? And then we'll speak to you afterward, Page told JAM! Music. When asked whether the one-off show might develop into a full reunion tour Page said that the band are taking things one step at a time. The rocker also told JAM! that there are currently no plans for the O2 show to be turned into a DVD or broadcast live on the night. Thanks for the info to Gigwise.com.

    It's selling out for musicians to make music? Page makes it sound like they may write new songs just cause, like he don't even care if they come out on an album.

    EXACTLY what I was thinking. I seriously hope they record another album. Who cares if it won't be another Zeppelin IV, it'd still be damn good.

    well... coinciding with their decision to release their music on the internet, this would be one of their better oppurtunities to put out new material i suppose

    All this talk of "will they film the show? will they make a DVD?" well here's what I think. I think they will film the show in full. However, I think they will await the reaction of the show first, leave it a few weeks, see what kind of reviews they get about it etc and then decide whether or not to release it.

    As you remember them? Yes, I'm sure. Not that anything they released after 1971 was particularly glorious.

    he wasn't invited. I don't think it'll happen, I got a feeling at least 1 member wont be up for it. probably plant... then perhaps then they'll do a Coverdale Page Jones album... that would be odd as hell.

    I am one of the biggest Zep fans in the world. As exciting as this news is, I honestly don't think it will sound as good as we all hope. Plant's voice isn't the same, Page isn't all coked up to do the wild things he used to, and no Bonzo. 'Nuff said. Why do you think JPJ wasn't there for the "Unledded" stint?

    OMG!!! Im sure its gonna be FREAKIN AWeSOME if they do make new material

    i love Zeppelin and all...theyre one of the greatest bands ever easily....but didnt In Through the Out Door already accomplish that?

    A new album good or bad would not tarnish led zeppelins image or make them any less of legends look at the stones they are ****ing amazing but you don't expect a great album out of this with all the pirating and downloading of music they should jus release a single and see how it is percieved

    lol...do ya'll know that if you play Stairway to Heaven backwards that they say satanic messages? you can hear it..just search it on google...it'll give you shivers! it goes into your subconscience thoughts, and after hearing it 6 times in a row it affects your thoughts and actions....

    it'd like to see Zeppelin put out some new songs. No matter what they put out it will be better then the music people listen to now.

    if there was actual proof that Led Zeppelin was making a new record.....i'd literally cum IN my pants. It would be the ultimate orgasm.
    Zeppelinmmmm
    It would be awesome for them to consider it....i think they should record the show and not tell anyone, then release it if it's good....and same with the album....give it a shot, and scrap it if they think it sucks. I know Jimmy would be up for anything Zeppelin, and i think Jonesy would, it's mostly up to Plant i think.
    '57 les paul
    he looks like the old dude from the song remains the same and the dude from the cover of ZOSO...that also was jimmy pertraying himself as an old gezzer, pretty funny how things work out like that. also this would totally make up for my gf breakin up with me by a ton. COME ON GUYS!!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Suppose they do record an album and do a tour, and they suck balls(which I would doubt). They shouldnt be judged because theyre tired of doing little bits of work here and there and decided theyd like to, I dunno, DO WHAT MUSICIANS DO??!! Ill admit it wont be the same without Bonzo, but I havent heard what Jason Bonham can do yet, as Im sure most of UG hasnt.
    I agree

    I dunno though. Id like to see the O2 show before I hear new material and its stupid how they won't tape it because buying the dvd of the shows can have its proceeds go to that charity fund, thats what they did when live aid and live 8 were released.

    amen to that, his son just isn't bonzo... too bad though, hopefully he does better than the show they did in the 90's, he wrecked it.

    NOOOOO WTF!! They're not going to broadcast it? Balls, I was hopin so much that they would.
    ledzeppelin7792
    led zeppelin will always be a the greatest band but i think they should just let it rest after the reunion tour. there old stuff is better than anything else these days. they have accomplished all they can.
    led,rainsong
    i dont think Plant gonna b up for it and JPJ and Page dont really mix that well it was always Jones and Bonham and Plant and Page just look at the love performances and u can see it would be cool though although i dont think it'll be too good because when Plant tried to do solo stuff it was really generic and when they played live for being accepted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame it wasn't too good they had some other guy playing guitar with Page and the other guy was really digging it while Page and Plant looked a little out of it plus in one video they went up to plant and handed him a guitar i was like WTF!?!?! dont they know he never plays guitar? that was really stupid plus their old, i dont think they can really handle it anymore and they'd probably be bored out of their minds i mean what chick wants to have sex with a rock legend who's old? probably an old lady lol

    You read my mind.

    I dont think they should release new stuff, but i wouldn't be surprised if they did. Its hard to turn down sacks of money.
    Mojo89
    I think that these dudes should release it as an "unledded kind of deal." My whole opinion on this is that plant cant really do some of the enthusiastic bits he used to. For instance listen to 'since ive been loving you' on how the west was won then listen to it on 'Jimmy page and robert plant No uarter: Unledded" He cant do those bluesy howls any more. How ever, If they were to do an album similiar to led zeppelin three minus the since i've been loving you and immigrant song It would be a fantastic album
    ElThomas
    that would be freakin sweet. but jpj has to be on bass and bonzos son needs to drum. otherwise it would be the same as that plant page thing right after coverdale page. but real zep would be schibby
    robbokop92
    IF led zeppelin record new material that'll be the shiz!!! they should tour if they bring out new stuff. I was so annoyed when i got my application refused for a O2 ticket. Man it suked!!!

    Is John Paul Jones going to be on bass? If not, it isn't Led Zeppelin. It's Page & Plant.
    Izz
    This will ruin the view I have open Zeppelin. Now they are one the biggest bands ever IMO. They'll just ruin at least my view of them. Please don't do any nre stuff.

    what is this guy like 7, who the hell doesnt know that, people figured it out in like '82 or something. and ive listened to that song for like an hour straight and i was fine (my HDD died an it was the only song left for a while) anyone with half a dick can tell that backmsking is a load of crap. like seriously, as if led zeppelin at the point of their career after LZIII had enough time to sit and think "ok now what do we have to say to have a hidden satanic message in one of our songs"
