LED ZEPPELIN fans shouldn't hold their breath for a much-rumored reunion, representatives of the three surviving ZEPPELINites have told The Toronto Sun.Despite last week's Launch report claiming a reunion "could well be in the offing" for 2003, according to "sources inside band management," there are no concrete plans for the guitarist Jimmy Page, vocalist Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones to reunite anytime soon. "This news appears yearly. There is nothing to report and no statement to give," said a publicist for Page. A spokesman for singer Plant: "This news piece comes up every year. Robert won't be able to interview about this." A publicist for Jones: "I spoke to John Paul's personal manager, and he knows nothing about it." LED ZEPPELIN disbanded in 1980 after drummer John Bonham died from choking on his own vomit after a drinking binge. Page, Plant and Jones have played together in public only three times since — at Live Aid in 1985, at the Atlantic Records 40th anniversary concert in 1988, and at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame induction gala in 1994. Page and Plant together recorded two albums and toured from 1994-98.
