Foo Fighters are taking some time off... and I'd like to see more of Dave, Taylor, Jimmy and John from the Wembley Stadium show.  They did Rock and Roll and Ramble On brilliantly.  Couldn't really give a shit what they call it.  And it's going to get me yelled at, but I don't really see what all the fuss is about with John Bonham.  Good drummer?  Sure.  Best?  NO!  Irreplaceable?  Definitely not... especially not if they go with Dave and Taylor.

May I ask what kind of drugs you are on???????????

JOHN BONHAM IS THE BEST (OR ONE OF THE BEST) OF ALL TIME AND THERE IS NO ONE THAT WILL EVER BE ABLE TO REACH THE GREATNESS HE HAS ACHIEVED!!

Personally. I don't wanna see this Foo Zeppelin combo.

I don't know how you guys define a "good drummer", and I don't understand why people always got to compare artists. Bonham was someone very special behind that drum kit, no doubt about it. Irreplacable as he was one very important part of the Zeppelin sound. He just was unique in what he did with the rest of the band. His wasn't really technically amazing, but he had feelings in his playing; groove, improvisation, intensive, and creativity. And personally I admire his basspedal use. :)
If Bonham wouldn't have existed, and Zeppelin was formed with another drummer, maybe they'd be as huge as they're now, maybe not, who knows, but they'd have a different sound in their music. The rest of the band stated that without Bonham they wouldn't have been as huge. But that's really not the point. I'm really glad Zeppelin had Bonham, because that Led Zeppelin was brilliant and amazing. Being an influence to a lot of drummers, to professional drummers and amateur drummers; meaning he had to be more than just a "good drummer". Well that's just my opinion anyway.  8)

Led Zeppelin 02 Arena Live Album Release Date Revealed?

It looks like Led Zeppelin‘s legions of fans may be getting an early Christmas present this year. According to Britain’s Sun newspaper, the powerhouse English blues rockers will release their London 02 Arena show on DVD, Blu-ray and CD this Nov. 22.
 
The project was recorded and filmed at Led Zeppelin’s reunion gig in 2007, which featured Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, son of the late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham. In a show staged to raise money for the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund, the legendary musicians ripped through a set that included classics like ‘Good Times, Bad Times,’ ‘Dazed and Confused,’ ‘Black Dog’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ finishing up with ‘Whole Lotta Love’ and ‘Rock and Roll.’
 
Now it appears the long-rumored official release of that concert is actually set to see the light of day. ‘That Metal Show’ co-hosts Eddie Trunk and Jim Florentine have been hinting at big Zeppelin news, and while the band have made no announcement, they  have been teasing fans with a countdown on their Facebook page. There is speculation that the band will have a big announcement on Thursday, which is perhaps not coincidentally the fifth anniversary of the day they announced the 02 Arena show. The group updated the countdown by posting a II this morning, and have also posted a teaser clip to YouTube that appears to be the lead-in to ‘Good Times, Bad Times,’ the opening song from the 02 gig.
 
A source allegedly told the Sun the project is a done deal, saying, “Jimmy has been in the studio making sure everything is perfect. The band want it to remain true to their exceptionally high standards. It’s coming out on November 22 as part of a simultaneous global release.”

Plant’s Led Zep 2014 reunion tease

Robert Plant has teased fans by hinting that he might be open to a Led Zeppelin reunion in 2014.
 
And he says the band were over several years before the death of John Bonham brought their career to an end in 1980.
 
Followers believed more tours and even new music might be on the cards when Led Zep played a one-off show featuring Jason Bonham in 2007, released last year as Celebration Day. But the singer refused to take part, leaving Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones to return to their own musical careers.
 
However, Plant insists he’s not entirely responsible for the band’s lack of activity. He tells Australia’s 60 Minutes: “The two other guys are Capricorns. They don’t say a word. They’re quite contained in their own worlds and they leave it to me… I’m not the bad guy.
 
“You need to see the Capricorns – I’ve got nothing to do in 2014.”
 
He lost five-year-old son Karac in 1977 while Led Zep were on tour and the tragedy led him to plan a career beyond the band until Bonham coerced him into coming back. “I was very sceptical about thinking about whether I had the right to be a parent and go back into that world,” says the singer. “When I lost our boy I applied to see if I could get a role as a teacher. I wanted to be around, a way to enjoy children at the peak of the time before they’re spoilt by the ways of our world.
 
“I always thought, ‘There’s another thing I can do.’ I was detached. I’d left it. But it’s a terrible drug being a good singer.
 
“John Bonham came round in a six-door limousine that he could barely get down the country lane. He had a chauffeur’s hat. He’d sit in the front and I’d be three doors back. He’d talk to me through the intercom – and we were only going to the pub. He’d say, ‘Come on, Percy, you know you can do it, you know you’ll have a great time,’ And so, back I went.”
 
But even in 1977 Plant believed Led Zep had had their day. “We explored lot of music in those days,” he reflects. “But by the time Bonzo drew me back in, it was over anyway. We’d done what we had to do. The world had changed. Other people had arrived and it was the beginning of a whole new movement. It was like we’d lost the keys to the kingdom.”
