"After John Bonham's death I spent 15 years not even wanting to think about Led Zeppelin," Contactmusic quoted him as saying. "But I also have difficulty thinking it's all over. Now at least one concert is planned and I'm incredibly happy about that," he added. He said that the one reason, which convinced him to reunite with his band mates for a comeback concert, was music.
"If I listen to our records from that time now, I think, 'My God, we were incredibly good!' We really blew everyone else off stage and in that way created a separate status for ourselves in the music world," he said. Led Zeppelin reformed to headline an upcoming tribute concert for late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun in London this month (10 Dec 07) - but the rockers are also rumoured to be planning a U.S. tour with The Cult in 2008.
