Led Zeppelin 50th Anniversary

So i really don't think he is at all bothered or interested in the 50th 

and judging by the silence neither is JPJ.

Not bothered or interested - exactly - so should not care if Jimmy wants to release stuff. If he doesn't care, then why would he object? So it's all down to if Jimmy wants to or not. I think there will be releases, but in Jimmy's time - not normal human time.

JPJ silence is not deliberate, he just does his own thing. He fondly looks back from every interview I have seen him in. No regrets, no distance, just happy doing what he is doing now and happy with what they once did. I do firmly believe if Jimmy wanted to, he could easily get together with Jonesy and create new stuff. Again, it's all down to Jimmy.

What's all this talk about wanting "new stuff" to be worked on. Even if "that" happened, they'd still be expected to perform the "old stuff" on tour. And how would they agree, all agree to perform it. Plant solo style, Page & Plant style, O2 style??? There's not a pipe big enough for these dreams. I'm expecting nothing. If it wasn't O2 style, I wouldn't be interested at all. There is not reunion, or reunion gig in the works. But no one can stop you from dreaming..

The new stuff I referred to wouldn't be Zeppelin. Just Jimmy and Jonesy - and others. I don't think that is too remote a possibility. Reunions? yes, definitely would be a minor miracle.

Has Mr Page or Mr Jones ever provided vocals for any of their projects before during or after LZ?.

Jimmy sang lead on his debut single, "She Just Satisfies" (backed with "Keep Moving"), released on Feb. 26, 1965 on the Fontana label. He did some backing vocals with Led Zeppelin.

JPJ sang lead on two songs on his solo album "The Thunderthief". They are "Ice Fishing At Night" and "Angry Angry".

I fail to see any connection to the topic of the thread though as Jimmy & JPJ haven't worked together since 2008 and aren't collaborating on any new music now.

Jones also sang on "When You Fall in Love" on his Scream for Help soundtrack album.

On Thunderthief he also sang on "Freedom Song"

It's not a very good article, on that we agree. It's obviously written by a millennial snowflake whose knowledge of Led Zeppelin is limited to what he had cut and pasted after thirty minutes of online searching. Then, Mick Wall? Still flogging that book I see. It's an absurd gesture on his part to parrot inaccurate press reports about a reunion as if it's historical fact.

Long live Led Zeppelin!!!!!!!   They will live forever!!!  Its hard to believe its 50 years.  And 41 years since I was lucky enough to get my hands on those tickets and see them after a 12 hour bus ride.  I still would not trade the day I saw them for anything.  It was after Presence so I got to see pretty much all of their material, of course excluding In Through The Outdoor.  This generation will never know the likes of Led Zeppelin or even bands like the Who or Pink Floyd.  The 70's rule

I thought that Wall's claim that Plant was turned off from considering further shows with the band as a result of Page requiring privacy backstage at the O2 arena was kind of ridiculous. I recently read somewhere that Plant refused to participate in a meet & greet with fans at one of his recent 2018 shows, so it kind of sounds a bit hypercritical on Plant's part to have condemned Page.

You have no substantiation for this claim.

'Millenial snowflake'. Get a new slant Steve, because this was old when you were peddling it years ago.

Enjoying the Beatles 50th White Album,  Hendrix 50th Electric Ladyland and the Kinks 50th Village Green.  All great, comprehensive packages.   I guess Zeppelin taking a Pass this year.  I don't count the book as anything special

Don’t forget John Lennon’s Imagine (deluxe anniversary), Rush’s A Farewell To Kings (40th Anniversary deluxe edition) & Elvis’ 68 Comeback Special deluxe 50th anniversary) all out now or soon, too.

still waiting on Anniversary edition /  live releases from LZ.

November 11, 1968: Jimmy Page and Peter Grant travel to New York, armed with the Page-produced master tapes of the group's first album. The meeting includes Atlantic Records' co-founder Ahmet Ertegun and attorney Steve Weiss at Atlantic's office - 1841 Broadway.

They then traveled to Miami for a short trip, including a fishing expedition with Atlantic’s executive vice-president Jerry Wexler.

A reported $200,000 signing advance is soon announced - a monumental sum at the time.

When there are five of them in the pic, who's the bloke on the right? Atlantic's lawyer?

I agree, there should never be a TOUR, another rehearsed one off show would be great though

Ain't gonna happen. No tour. No gigs. No new stuff. *possible exception Jimmy does actually start playing again (as solo artist).

The best we can hope for is Jimmy release live stuff covering different era's - likely only be an expanded DVD release (FULL: EC, Knebworth, RAH - which is fine by me if that is what is in the pipeline - not perfect, but I'll take it and be happy).

Maybe HTEWW, maybe Bath or something similar that was multi-tracked and decent enough. BUT - if there are multi's on a shelf - there must be a reason they have not been discussed, mentioned, or released up until now. Probably they are sub-par and not something the guys are happy with. There is also zero talk of cleaning up SB's, or looking into fantastic gigs that are not really nice multi's - so the live vaults may be just as desolate as the studio vaults at this point. :(

The dark horse possibility being Jimmy's previously stated desire to release collection of live stuff expanding the entirety of Zep's reign. So from '68/'69 to '80 inclusive. *IF Jimmy accepts SB recordings will need to be used - so a really, really dark horse.

All speculation of course, and nothing original here, but anyone holding out hope for new material and/or a tour - that ship has long sailed friends. I still hold onto hope there is indeed live stuff coming. and hopefully soon. I ain't gettin' any younger....

When will we get more information about the Led Zeppelin streaming service?  

Could be months, could be never. What we have so far isn't even a rumor or a leak - it's just a trademark application. Trademark applications sometimes don't manifest as actual products for months or years, or ever.
