I really don't get this. Jimmy Page or anyone else in the group has not looked at the film footage or listened to the multi-tracks. Obviously, these guys don't have much, if any, interest in releasing the show. You would think that the record company might have an interest too, in an attempt to save their ass. By the time the "distant point" arrives, no one will give a damn about it. I guess we will have to settle for the bootlegs that are floating around.

Led Zeppelin will receive the Best Live Act honor at the upcoming Mojo Awards, set to take place on June 16th in London. The band reunited last fall to play a show at London's O2 Arena, and since then, there had been talk about another gig or tour, but nothing has materialized. Singer Robert Plant recently told Uncut magazine, "I really enjoyed it. And hopefully, one day we could do it again for another really, really good reason."

As for a CD release of the show, it's still up in the air. Guitarist Jimmy Page said there are no plans just yet, adding, "It was recorded, but we didn't go in with the express purpose of making a DVD to come out at Christmas, or whatever. We haven't seen the images or investigated the multitracks. It's feasible that it might come out at some distant point, but it'll be a massive job to embark on."

Meanwhile, John Paul Jones wouldn't reveal anything when asked about a possible reunion album. All he said was, "I'm not too certain about anything at the moment. I've got no idea what's going to happen, but I'd certainly like to play with Jimmy again."
