Robert Plant’s spokesperson called the story rubbish. It was alleged that Richard Branson had offered Led Zeppelin about $800 million to reunite for 35 shows. The story claimed everyone was into it except Robert Plant who not only turned it down but ripped up the offer.
Richard Branson is now speaking out about it on his blog:
“I’ve been left dazed and confused by a story doing the rounds this week about us apparently offering Led Zeppelin £500 million to reform and carry out a tour. As much as I love the band, there is absolutely no truth to the story.”
“I spoke to Robert Plant about the story, which he also confirmed is complete rubbish from his side too. Robert told me he is very proud of his history and the band’s past, and has always had great respect and love for his work throughout his career. However, he really believes he must move on with his life and career today.”
So there you have it. And even thought the story is bogus it doesn’t mean there is still a chance.
