Looking for an opportunity to hear Led Zeppelin deflect questions -- once again -- about a reunion?
Be sure to catch “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Monday night, when Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones will sit down for a joint interview. The classic-rock legends are scheduled to visit Letterman’s show (which, FYI, has a separate musical guest booked) the day after being honored at the 35th annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington; the talk-show host is among this year’s other honorees.
In October, Led Zeppelin’s surviving members seemed to rule out the possibility of getting back together at a New York press conference regarding “Celebration Day,” the concert film that documents the band’s one-off gig at London’s O2 Arena in 2007.
But not unlike the Rolling Stones, who preceded their just-launched 50 & Counting tour with a groundswell of media activity, Led Zeppelin has kept its visibility rather high of late: Last month its tunes “Kashmir” and “Since I’ve Been Loving You” appeared in an episode of NBC’s “Revolution,” while Page covers the current issue of Rolling Stone.
Tune in Monday to see if the band’s anti-reunion song remains the same.
