Led Zeppelin drummer Jason Bonham responds to Robert Plant's reunion tease
Sticksman says he doesn't know how to take Plants comments that he has 'nothing to do in 2014'
Jason Bonham, son of the band's legendary late sticksman John wrote on his Facebook page (via Stereogum): "I just watched Robert's interview, where he says he's free in 2014!!!!!! Not sure how to read it? What do you think? JB"
Last week, Plant said he was waiting on his bandmates Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones in order to kick off the reunion, blaming their silence on the fact that they are Capricorns. "They don't say a word," he said. "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."
Led Zeppelin's last proper show was at London's O2 Arena in December 2007, where they were joined by Jason Bonham on drums. However, a full tour following the one-off gig was nixed by Plant.
Led Zeppelin are currently in talks to stream their back catalogue online. The band are looking at giving at various music services including Spotify, Rdio and Rhapsody the right to put their music online. A deal would be a rare digital leap forward for Zeppelin, who waited until 2007 before they made their albums available through iTunes.
Meanwhile, Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page is working on remastering a number of the band's albums. Page, who oversaw the DVD release of Celebration Day, the concert film of Led Zeppelin's O2 Arena gig, revealed that he is working on extra material for each album the band recorded and that they will see the light of day in a series of boxset releases, starting this year.
