ROBERT PLANT Interviewed On UK TV; Video Available

LED ZEPPELIN frontman Robert Plant was a guest on ITV's "This Morning" program on January 11, 2008 to discuss his collaboration with bluegrass superstar Alison Krauss, "Raising Sand", and ZEPPELIN's reunion gig at London's O2 arena this past December. Watch the interview in two parts below.

LED ZEPPELIN bassist John Paul Jones said at BBC Radio 2's annual Folk Awards in London on February 4 that the band has "no idea" about its future plans yet, according to Gigwise.com. When asked if the group members had spoken with each other since their acclaimed reunion show in December, Jones told the BBC, "I am obliged to say we have and we have absolutely no idea of what we are going to be doing."

Jones had said shortly after the reunion concert that the band would meet in January to discuss its future.

Guitarist Jimmy Page said at a press conference in Japan last month that the band was "musically ready" to go on a world tour, although the earliest that was likely to happen was September. The delay seems mainly due to the schedule of singer Robert Plant, who will be touring with singer Alison Krauss to support "Raising Sand".

When asked recently in New York about the chances of a full-blown ZEPPELIN tour, Plant said, "You never know what is around the corner."

Page, Plant and Jones performed together for the first time in nearly two decades at the December 10 show in London, joined by late ZEPPELIN drummer John Bonham's son Jason behind the kit. Since the show, speculation has been rampant that ZEPPELIN will launch a full tour, with massive offers reportedly on the table already.
