Although they’ve been officially broken up since 1980, Led Zeppelin actually had the most triumphant year of their career in 2012.
The surviving members — Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones — regrouped last year to prepare and promote the release of their 2007 London reunion concert as a CD/DVD set and feature film (“Celebration Day“). Fans and critics responded with such praise that whispers of another possible reunion album or tour are now swirling around again.
The band was also honored by the Kennedy Center and President Barack Obama last month in Washington. As the three elder musicians sat in the balcony watching an all-star cavalcade of rock stars including the Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitz, Kid Rock, and Heart pay tribute to them, Robert Plant became visibly choked up.
