My Wet Dream for the end of Led Zeppelin


Recommended Posts

When I say 'end', Im referring to these three guys and Jason and the possibility of anything ever happening again, as we all know, the chances of that are getting slimmer by the day, month, year...

I think I have a great idea (as if anybody cares what I think!)....

I cant imagine them ever touring again, they made their point with the O2, it was an excellent performance, and for these guys (5 years later) to try to do that on an almost nightly basis, I cant see it happening. Robert has no desire and I do believe the seperate management, seperate hotel rooms, waning interest and infighting will lead to it being a big regret.

And I cant imagine them getting together to do an entire new album. Those things take months these days and a lot of effort. And I can see in no time them doing it from different corners of the world, sending their parts in electronically, who needs that...

So here is the idea for the END OF ZEPPELIN. While there seems to be some good feelings in the wake of the Kennedy Center Honors and before these guys go on their own way for probably forever, how about the four of them take a couple weeks, go to some inspiring location or fun city. Have some food and drinks, go into the local studio and bust you balls to write and record ONE LAST original Led Zeppelin song. All of them together in the studio, a common purpose and you can even call it SWAN SONG..... Put it on Itunes as a gift to fans and themselves... Make it clear, NO TOUR, NO ALBUM, just one final song!

My silly thought of the day.

What I'm about to say should be common knowledge by now - LED ZEPPELIN doesn't do singles - LOL

If they decided to do a new Led Zeppelin song, I have a feeling they would approach it the way The Beatles approached the Lennon demo, or Jagger approached the re-recordings on Exile & Some Girls. To me, they could go with ITTOD era and pull it off,because Plant's voice matches up pretty close to how he sounded in '78-'80,but they'd have to find tapes of Bonham's playing and start messing with Pro Tools. I'm sure Page has thousands of hours of unused riffs, so it would be a "throw it in the blender" situation. I think Jones would probably do some incredible arranging of the song.

It's possible to have a "new" Led Zeppelin song, but it would be a lot of work to figure out how to do it.

Coda took care of the loose ends.

I think part of why they did the Celebration Day promotion tour was in lieu of doing more shows, but maybe after Robert sat and watched the movie with the audience and saw the reaction, the wheels started turning.
