Led Zeppelin - Reunion Questions Lead To Uncomfortable Led Zeppelin Conference

With the Led Zeppelin reunion rumours flying around, it was only natural that journalists would push the issue at the press conference for their upcoming gig movie Celebration Day yesterday (October 9, 2012), Rolling Stone reports.

All seemed jovial, pleasant even, and the band cut a relaxed quintet, but then it got weird. "There are some people in here who are not journalists," Robert Plant said early on. "There's a masseuse in here who's not a journalist. I think that's ever so exciting." Uncomfortable laughter ensued, and then a reporter made the mistake of broaching the subject of a reunion after the film. "I mean, we've been thinking about all sorts of things," Plant said. "And then we can't remember what we were thinking of. Schmuck." After a bit of silence, of the awkward variety a radio presenter praised the film, but addressed the reunion, again, saying: "I don't know if it's going to quench the thirst of those who wished to see you in the flesh." More silence, before plant simply stated: "Sorry!"

Finally, Plant elaborated and decided not to speak in short sharp sentences, but sent a strong message to any reporters who had reunion questions scribbled in their moleskins: "We were so happy we were getting it right and taking it beyond what we thought we were about that night," he said of the O2 gig. "There were moments where we took off ... But the responsibility of doing that four nights a week for the rest of time is a different thing. We're pretty good at what we do but the tail should never wag the dog, really. If we're capable of doing something, in our own time, that will be what will happen. So any inane questions from people who are from syndicated outlets, you should just really think about what it takes to answer a question like that in one second. We know what we've got, you know."
