It’s a diplomatic failure at the highest level: Bill Clinton couldn’t get Led Zeppelin to reunite.
Led Zeppelin and Rolling Stone magazine have always had an uneasy relationship: although the band dominated the ’70s, they were only on the cover once during that decade. And Rolling Stone didn’t always give Zeppelin’s records favorable reviews. So, it was a surprise that the band’s leader Jimmy Page gave the magazine an eight-hour plus interview in the new issue, which features a vintage Page shot on the cover.
During a news conference Tuesday promoting their 2007 reunion concert film, “Celebration Day,” the band became uncomfortable with a question about “anticipating something bigger for the band.”
Billboard Biz, the music industry trade publication, reports that the Stones will play two shows at Brooklyn’s brand new Barclays Center in November.
