As noted at The Hollywood Reporter that day, Page was joined by the band’s bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones (son of the late John Bonham), and drummer Robert Plant in the news conference at the Museum of Modern Art in New York for the premiere of their Celebration Day concert film, which covers their reunion concert at London‘s 02 Arena in 2007.
“I think it’s disappointing for people when the answer is no. That’s what it is now.” Jimmy Page said during the news conference when asked about the possibility of a Led Zeppelin reunion. The Celebration Day film premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater, along with a red carpet outside.
“We’ve been thinking about all sorts of things. Then we can’t remember what we’ve been thinking about. Expectations are horrific things. To actually do anything at all together is such a kind of incredible weight.” Robert Plant said; who also referred a reporter by the pejorative term “schmuck.”
“That night we were just hanging on for dear life. We were so happy that we were getting it right. I think we made pretty good choices in the time we had.” Plant said about their 2007 reunion concert, show, which they did in honor of the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.
Meanwhile, Led Zeppelin members will also attend the UK premiere of their reunion concert film at the Hammersmith Apollo in London this coming Friday, October 12. The said film will also have worldwide theatrical release on 1,500 screens in over 40 territories on Wednesday, October 17.
