Yes, this headline may sound a bit familiar, but Billy Corgan is not the only one doing it. Everyone is doing it now. My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James has created his own record label named Removador Recordings and Solutions.

But let’s face it, there are Zeppelin-at-Bonnaroo rumors every year. Sadly, the dream of seeing Zeppelin headline Bonnaroo may be nothing more than a fantasy, especially considering Robert Plant’s informal announcement that he will be focusing on other performances for the next two years and recent comments from Jimmy Page’s manager, Peter Mensch:
