After [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] dropped out of the lineup for this year’s Glastonbury festival earlier this week, rumors began flying that [lastfm]Led Zeppelin [/lastfm]might get back together to fill their spot. Much to the excitement of fans, the idea is not entirely out of the question.
When Zeppelin guitarist [lastfm]Jimmy Page [/lastfm]was questioned by the U.K. newspaper the Sun, he gave fans hope by saying, “I refuse to rule anything out.”
There was no word about interest from [lastfm]Robert Plant [/lastfm]or [lastfm]John Paul Jones[/lastfm], however, the other two surviving members of Zeppelin.
The legendary band recently turned down a headlining slot at the Download Festival in Donington Park, England, which will be held June 11-13. Zeppelin have been a festival hopeful for ages, especially since the three living members reuinted for a one-off show in 2007 with [lastfm]Jason Bonham [/lastfm]filling in for his deceased father, John, on drums.
Meanwhile, U2 frontman [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm] remains out of commission due to a back injury he incurred while rehearsing for the band’s 360° world tour. On Wednesday, it was announced that [lastfm]Gorillaz[/lastfm] have been tapped as U2’s replacement at Glastonbury.
