Robert Plant plays down Led Zeppelin rumours

Singer denies reunion reports

Robert Plant plays down Led Zeppelin rumours
Led Zeppelin have denied they will be reuniting for a gig later this year.

There have been rumours the band would reform for a tribute concert for Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun, with John Bonham's son, Jason, taking over the drums.

Bonham died after choking on his own vomit following a drinking session in 1980.

However while not flatly denying the stories, the band’s singer Robert Plant cryptically played down chance of a show with his old band.

"If there was one (a reunion), then there wouldn't be enough doctors to support it!" he told reporters at the Rockwave Festival in Greece.

Led Zeppelin have only performed a handful of concerts since they split in 1980, including a disastrous performance at 1985's Live Aid, which they refused to allow on the DVD release.
