Anyone read it yet? Anyhing to report?

I haven't read the article yet but perhaps others have. Someone may eventually post the article but I would definitely buy the issue, even if you're not a fan of RS.

I'm still convinced Jonesy sleeps in a hydrolic-based youth tube of some sort. The only thing that has aged is his playing- which has gotten better.

Wow, I can't wait to get home and get my mail. My uncle got me a subscription to Rolling Stone for Chirstmas a few years ago. Most of the time my brother likes the magazine more than I do.

WOW!! They look GREAT, although I suspect they got a little help via PS airbrush. "How we lost the war on drugs" great sub-text. LOL!!

LOVE IT ! !

The title should have read:

THE RETURN OF LED ZEPPELIN --

WHY We Lost the War on Drugs

:thumbsup:

Tour???

OK, I ran out to find this issue, but it isn't in the store yet...at least, not the one I went to.

There is an excerpt in the online version of RS, but leaves out "the biggest tour ever"...figures :rolleyes:

Anyone read it yet? Is a tour confirmed???

I can't tell you how excited that makes me feel!!

I'm afraid to get my hopes up!

JP is the first silver haired man to make me lust. :wub:

He looks GREAT!

I think Jason should have been included on the cover though.

Anyone find the mag in California, USA?

B)

Yes! I picked it up at the newsstand on my lunch hour.

I don't know where you are in Cali but check the local newsstands......it should be on display. You may also want to check Borders or BN but I don't know if they have it yet.

I live in a small town in BF Minnesota. Sadly, I am just going to have to wait until it hits the magazine section at Walmart. :thumbdown:

Tour???

Well, it does say "talk". Certainly the media and fans all over the world have been "talking" about the possibility of a tour. I'll wait till someone posts the article before I put any credence in that rather speculative subheading on the cover. No one I know on the "inside" has sent me any "hush hush" messages. Not that I'd spill if they had. But I wouldn't say they hadn't if they did.

That is why I want to know if someone actually read the article. :)

This is madening because like I said, I live in a small town and magazines that aren't about farming don't usually get here the day they are issued. :huh:

I am not feeling patient.

Rolling Stone: The Return of Led Zeppelin

The Return of Led Zeppelin

Behind the scenes at the rehearsals for the biggest show of the year -- plus talk of a tour.

DAVID FRICKEPosted Nov 28, 2007 5:54 AM

On June 10th of this year, at 2:30 in the afternoon, the surviving members of Led Zeppelin — guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones — met in a rehearsal space to play some songs. It was the first time they had been in the same room with instruments since their rough four-song set at Led Zeppelin's 1995 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. This time, the stakes were higher: to see if they had the strength, empathy and appetite to truly perform as Led Zeppelin again, in their first full concert since the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980.

The location of the rehearsal, somewhere in England, is still a zealously guarded secret. In interviews a few weeks before Led Zeppelin's December 10th show at London's 02 arena — a benefit tribute to the late Ahmet Ertegun, the co-founder of Atlantic Records — Page, Plant and Jones claim they can't remember the date, what they played or even how the idea of reuniting in honor of Ertegun, a close friend and mentor during and after the band's years on the label, came up. They all agree that playing together again, after so long, was a momentous, emotional occasion.

"It was immediate," Page says brightly, sporting a small splint on his left pinkie, the result of a fracture suffered in a fall at home that forced a pause in rehearsals and the rescheduling of the concert, originally set for November 26th. "Everybody went in with a will to work and to enjoy it. It was a delight."

Plant recalls "a lot of big smiles," wearing one himself. The day was "cathartic and therapeutic. No pressure, no weight." Jones claims he "didn't have any doubts. Someone picked a song. We got through it. And it rocked."

But Bonham's son, Jason, can tell you the exact date and hour Led Zeppelin became a band again, because he was there, taking over for his dad. "They might not know what time it was," he says of the other three, "but I know." For him, it was "a real lump in the throat."

"I didn't think there would be an instant sound," says Jason, 41, currently a member of Foreigner and now a father of two himself. "I thought, 'It's going to take some time.' " He was wrong. The band went right into the slow, dark fury of "No Quarter," from 1973's Houses of the Holy. "When the riff came in, there was this look that went around. It was brilliant." Next, the four hit the desert-caravan march of "Kashmir," from 1975's Physical Graffiti. "Then we stopped. Jimmy said, 'Can you give me a hug?' And Robert shouted, 'Yeah, sons of thunder!' "

Finally, at the end of that day, Jason says, "They said, 'When we get together next . . .' " He laughs. "I thought, 'You mean I get another chance at this?' "
