Robert Plant has opened the floodgate of rumors about a Led Zeppelin reunion tour. While speaking to Australia’s version of 60 Minutes, the frontman said that he was open to reuniting with his former band mates next year since he’s got nothing else going on. Basically, he’s totally game if the rest are!

A bevy of British rockstars have joined forces to crack down on piracy.

See the complete letter below.

Miss classic Led Zeppelin? While a reunion’s just not gonna happen – I don’t care what you say, a Led Zeppelin without John Bonham is not Led Zeppelin—former Zep frontman Robert Plant is currently touring with his new band, Band of Joy, and bringing the heat as if it were 1973 all over again.

There are a lot of hardcore tribute artists out there who perform the best music from some of the most iconic bands. Jason Bonham is one of them (The Pink Floyd Experience) and he’s put together an awesome tour filled songs from the rock gods, Led Zeppelin. It won’t be just another concert or a typical show, it will be an experience. Check out the tour dates below…

Singing and lyrics are important in a rock band; it’s hard to imagine The Beatles without John Lennon or The Rolling Stones without Mick Jagger. But once in a while, the singer sits back and lets the rest of the band take care of business and something wonderful happens as a result. These are those songs, in no particular order.

At the 2009 Grammys, when Radiohead‘s In Rainbows lost out to Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand for Album of the Year I was crushed. But in that heart-breaking moment I learned that Led Zeppelin‘s frontman was a legend and he could do no wrong, even when Radiohead is his competition. This year, Plant is releasing another collaborative record only this time with Band of Joy. On September 14th, they’ll release their self-titled album via Rounder Records. This will be Plant’s first record since the six-time Grammy Award winning Raising Sand.

A ‘guitar hero’ if there ever was one, Jimmy Page is back in the studio recording new music. Hey, if Robert Plant can hang with country artist Alison Krauss and John Paul Jones can rock out with supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, then surely Page can find something musically creative to do while the universe waits patiently for a Led Zeppeiln reunion tour.
Page, who was inducted into the Mojo Hall Of Fame in London Thursday night, told 6 Music he was working on new material with a number of different projects.

The mudslinging continues in the “are-they or aren’t-they Aerosmith” breakup that probably should have occurred fifteen years ago. Amidst rumors of a Billy Idol takeover (setting this story’s relevance back to, say, 1985), and even Paul Rogers of Bad Company (ok, 1975), Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has confirmed to Classic Rock Magazine that his current sparring partner/ supposed former lead singer Steven Tyler did try out for Led Zeppelin after Robert Plant declined to tour in 2008.

Every typical rock star wannabe’s very first mission is to successfully play Led Zeppelin‘s “Stairway to Heaven.” It was the most popular song of 1971 and it’s still famous today. That Jimmy Page guitar is what makes the song, but it’s also known for being terribly long (or not long enough for you hard core glam rockers out there today).
The song itself is 8:02 minutes. That amount of time for a song was incredibly lengthy back then and it still is today. However, we now find out that lengthy Zeppelin song was also perfect for DJs and their cigarettes.
