Led Zeppelin flies high, again.

This upcoming November will bring the long awaited reunion of Led Zeppelin, which disbanded in 1980 after te death of thier legendary drummer, John Bonham. As expected, Jason Bonham is taking his father drums by storm and will fill his seat during the gig with original members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones.

The original bandmates apparently have found a great drummer in the son of the legend, because they had said many times that Zep died with Bonham..... nonetheless, Jason can fill the void left behind by his father, and the band seem to trust him for the job.

A new collection of remastered themes gets released as a two-disc best-of collection titled "Mothership" by Nov. 12, as well as a Nov. 19 re-release of 'The Song Remains the Same' on CD and DVD. No word on whether new material is going to be released for the ocassion.

The concert will be held on November 26th at London's O2 Arena, and a huge crowd is expected.
The concert will honor the late Ahmet Ertegun, who signed them for Atlantic in 1968. Other musicians will also appear on the set.

I hope it coincides with the announcement of castro's dead, just for the sake of the Cuban Zep fans.
