LED ZEPPELIN: 'Good Times' Audio Snippet From Forthcoming O2 Concert DVD/CD
- Sep. 11, 2012
An audio snippet of the song "Good Times, Bad Times" from the forthcoming double-CD / double-DVD release of LED ZEPPELIN's 2007 reunion show in London can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The set is tentatively due in late November.
On Saturday (September 8), the band started a five-day countdown on its Facebook page, leading some fans to believe that an official announcement is coming on Wednesday (September 12).
With the entire rock world going insane with "ZEPPELIN" fever in the weeks and months following the reunion show, Robert Plant — who was the lone hold-out on any future ZEPPELIN gigs — was asked how he stayed calm with all the excitement centered around the band. "Well, I don't think anybody actually asked that question, to be perfectly frank — apart from the media. So, here I am, just doing what I do," he said.
Jason Bonham, the son of late ZEPPELIN drummer John Bonham, who was behind the kit for the performance at London's O2 Arena, told The Pulse Of Radio he's eager to own some sort of document of the event. "I know it probably was recorded. I mean, there was cameras there and everything, but I'm not too sure of what the process is there," he said. "Me, personally, I'd love to get a, y'know, a version of it that I could — you know, stay with me forever. It'll be there forever in my mind, but to get a chance to watch it back is sometimes only when you realize what you've done."
Back in 2008, Jimmy Page spoke about the O2 gig to Uncut, saying, "It was recorded, but we didn't go in with the express purpose of making a DVD to come out at Christmas, or whatever. We haven't seen the images or investigated the multi-tracks. It's feasible that it might come out at some distant point, but it'll be a massive job to embark on."
