Plant Shoots Down Zeppelin Reunion Rumors…Again

LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 04: Singer Robert Plant appears at a press conference to announce the Daltrey/Townsend Teen & Young Adult Cancer Program at UCLA on November 4, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.
Robert Plant
is not doing the Led Zeppelin reunion dance with Jimmy Page right now.

After the guitarist teased the idea of another Led Zep reunion for Britain's Glastonbury Festival, Plant shot the notion down during a press conference in Morocco, where he was performing with his own band, the Sensational Shape Shifters.

Plant told the gathering that, "I think (Page) needs to go to sleep and have a good rest and think again. We had a great history together and like all brothers we have these moments where we don't speak on the same page, but that's life."

Plant bowed out of a proposed Zep reunion tour after the group's December 2007 show at the O2 Arena in London and has consistently said he has no interest in being part of the band again; he's currently recording a new album with the Sensational Shape Shifters and is, ironically, performing with them at this year's Glastonbury Festival on June 28.

...Meanwhile, Britain's Official Chart Company is predicting a Top 10 debut for all three of the Zep reissues next week. The "Led Zeppelin" debut album is expected to bow at No. 4, with "Led Zeppelin III" at No. 6 and "Led Zeppelin II" at No. 7. The three are also expected to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 in the U.S.
