I disagree.It's not about entitlement it's about the hunger to see the band for themselves, just once. When Lennon died, George Harrison famously said that "The Beatles will not be getting back together as long as John Lennon remains dead". And so that was that. However, with Zeppelin it's different, Page and JPJ wanted to continue after 2007 but Plant nixed it. Fans want to see their heroes in the flesh, playing the music they love. So, if there is the slightest chance that Plant might change his mind, they will continue hope and interviewers will continue to ask because of that hope - was it two million applications for O2 tickets? Tells you all you need to know about how desperately fans want to see the band. Is it demanding? Sure. However it is nothing to do with entitlement and everything to do with passion, for the band and for the music. You can't knock fans for hoping against hope, it's human nature.

Bullshit. Just as it was definitively over for the Beatles when John Lennon died, Led Zeppelin ceased to exist the moment John Bonham passed away. You can slight John Bonham's importance all you want, but Robert Plant and the rest of us know the real deal. Without John Henry Bonham it ain't Led Zeppelin and it is not worth trying to fake it on some cash-grab stadium tour.

And that applies to each of the 4. No question.

Could do it, but just not Zep.
