I hope the reporters at this press conference got the memo ahead of time: Do NOT ask questions about another potential reunion in the future. On a side note, that man right there is the greatest living rock guitarist.

Here's a vid of young Jimmy when he was filled with dreams and ambition. Little did he know he would become one of the greatest guitarists EVER.

One of the greatest guitarists. Got to watch so many Zeppelin concerts.

But you have to call them "se' pu-rin" in Japan or no one will understand what you're talking about.

The music shops in Nishi Shinjuku don't like it when he hits Japan. He always takes an afternoon to go round them all with a big box picking up every bootleg copy he can find and walking out.

@zichi - you lucky old bugger!

Best rock band ever. Best drummer. Best guitarist other than Jimmy H.. Best vocalist (everyone wants to sound like Plant).

flammenwerfer,

the ones I enjoyed the most were the outdoor rock festivals, so many great memories.

One band I really wish I had a chance to see live when Bonzo was still around. Looking forward to checking out “Celebration Day” though.

Why the thumbs down?! A thumbs down for my comment is a thumbs down for Jimmy. I wasn't joking, he actually does that.

Nice post of the 50's tv show link. Host is a tool, tho.

Nice save on my part, to then resist clicking several enticing Zep vids after it was over and thus spend the whole night on YouTube.

Ayler- Really?? Why bother? He must feel strongly about it. I could imagine a lot better ways to spend my time if I was rich, elderly, and still producing new music, and in Japan on a vacation.

Like a lot of 60s bands from the UK,

they were a Freemason secret society spawn of a band, influenced by Alestair Crowley, etc.

I liked some of their music back when I was under the influence of various substances categorized as illicit by the DEA...but

Retire and recede, please.

If there is a legacy to be found in your previous bands repertoire, it will be defined as such by the public.

If not, oh well.

Zepplin was awesome.
