London (ANI): Led Zepplin are to offer their music online for
the first time next month. The Brit band is now following in the
footsteps of other big names in the music biz to make their album
available online. The band will now make its albums available for
download from all online music retailers from November 13.
"We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalogue will
now be available digitally," The Sun quoted guitarist Jimmy Page,
as saying in a statement. "The addition of the digital option will
better enable fans to obtain their music in whichever manner they
prefer," he added. Apart from downloads, Led Zeppelin is also
teaming up with mobile provider Verizon Wireless to provide ring
tones and full song downloads.
In Sept this year, the band announced that they would be
performing a one-off reunion gig on November 26 as a tribute to the
late founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, who signed Led
Zeppelin in 1968. Led Zeppelin disbanded in 1980 following the
death of drummer John Bonham.
